Claremont Park is a well spaced row of handsome mid-19th century villas overlooking Leith Links. The Links provide a superb open space and, according to local legend, are home to the first ever "international" golf match between Scotland and England in 1681. Leith has played a significant role in Scotland's history and is the maritime gateway to the capital city. Claremont Park is situated approximately 2 miles to the North East of Edinburgh's city centre and has excellent road and public transport links both into town and out to the city bypass and East Lothian. Leith itself has changed dramatically in recent years, with a proliferation of mouth-watering eateries, including Martin Wishart's Michelin-starred restaurant, many seafood specialists, and plenty of cosy Scottish pubs. Ocean Terminal, Leith's stylish shopping centre designed by Sir Terence Conran, is nearby with a variety of stores, restaurants, a multi-screen cinema complex and the Royal Yacht Britannia moored alongside.
21 Claremont Park is an impressive semi-detached Victorian house located within the Leith Conservation Area with an attractive outlook over Leith Links. The house is beautifully presented and has been extensively modernised throughout to create a layout that is well suited to modern family living. Much of the period charm has been retained, with a wealth of features such as intricate cornicing, stripped wood flooring, impressive fireplaces and working shutters.
Of particular note on the ground floor is the elegant sitting room to the front, which has a bay window with attractive outlook over Leith Links, a central fireplace with a wood burning stove, ornate cornicing and shutters. There is a stylish and modern architect designed kitchen / dining room to the rear with French doors opening to the garden. A useful garden room, utility room and wc comprise the remainder of the ground floor accommodation. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, a modern family bathroom and a beautifully appointed drawing room, which would make a fine master bedroom. The staircase, with cupola over, leads to the second floor, where there are two further double bedrooms and a shower room.
Externally, the house is set back from the street with a generous sized front garden. To the rear is a large walled garden with a southerly aspect.
