This is a very nicely presented one bedroom ground floor flat on the ever increasingly popular Broughton Road, close to Edinburgh's city centre and nestled into the foot of the iconic New Town. It will make an excellent purchase for a first-time buyer or a shrewd investor, especially with the soon to be completed refurbishment of the 1890's grand red brick Powderhall Stables a little further up Broughton Road, generating many new jobs and a consequent need to live in the neighbourhood.
The front façade of the tenement retains its original uniformity with all its sculpted window reveals intact, as well as its maintained wrought iron railings and their returns.
The flat's front door opens onto the entrance hall with storage cupboard. The living room is south/south east facing and consequently bright; it has utility cupboard, an Edinburgh press and a stack of built-in shelves. The kitchen is accessed from the living room and is separated from it by a window wall, thus giving it borrowed natural light. The kitchen has both floor and wall mounted units, work surfaces and tiled areas both in the cooker slot and behind the work surfaces. There is a comfortable double bedroom and the naturally lit bathroom has a white three-piece suite, with an electric shower over the bath. The flat has secondary glazing in the bedroom and gas central heating.
To the rear of the tenement, there is an exceptionally well-maintained communal garden.
There are good local shops and a Tesco Superstore on Broughton Road itself and both vibrant Broughton Street and Canonmills are a short distance away.
Leith's Ocean Terminal and the culinary delights of The Shore are on the doorstep and, for walkers and cyclists, the Water of Leith walkway runs through the locality and the Royal Botanic Garden are less than 10 minutes away.
There are good bus services across Edinburgh.
"Over the last eighteen months, Powderhall Stables, on Broughton Road, has undergone transformation. This historic red brick 1890s former stable block will now deliver a mix of individual studios and co-working spaces aimed at microbusinesses, as well as two event spaces, supporting dozens of jobs.
The building will also feature two flexible function spaces with kitchen facilities suitable for hosting a wide variety of events. The former stabling yard to the rear of the building will be turned into a new plaza. The facility is set to open in early 2022, with the Council preparing to seek expressions of interest from potential operators."
The Scottish Government and City Council supported project has been designed to generate new jobs and thus attract people to live and work in and around a further improved and more desirable Broughton Road.
