In move-in condition, this contemporary and well-proportioned one-bedroom, ground/first-floor duplex flat forms part of the ''Academia'' conversion of a B-listed Victorian school building, located in the thriving Shore area in Leith, north-east of Edinburgh city centre.

The property lies on the edge of Leith's sought-after Shore district, well served by the area's unrivalled selection of cafés, bars, bistros, and eateries, including several Michelin-starred restaurants. Excellent shopping is available throughout Leith, with the foot of Leith Walk close by, a Lidl store right next to the building, and a Tesco store just a few hundred yards away. Edinburgh's Ocean Terminal retail and leisure complex, less than a mile to the north, offers a generous range of major high-street shopping outlets, a multi-screen cinema, gym, and a variety of restaurants.
