Reached by a secure stairwell or a lift to the fifth floor, the front door opens into an entrance hall with two storage cupboards. Accompanied by a combination of airy neutral décor and warmly-toned timber flooring, the welcoming area flows into the apartment’s living accommodation on the right.

The master bedroom benefits from the additional luxury of its own en-suite bathroom, featuring a three-piece-suite with a shower-over-bath.

The Shore, Leith
Approximately two miles north of Edinburgh city centre, this vibrant suburb was once a thriving port at the heart of the capital’s maritime industry. Like much of Edinburgh’s northern seaboard, The Shore has undergone significant regeneration to become one of the most desirable postcodes in the capital, recently voted as one of the best places to live by The Times in 2019. Characterised by its narrow, cobbled streets and continental-style waterfront, the area exudes a charming, small-town ambience that is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Shore is renowned for its buzzing arts and social scene, which is fuelled by a fabulous selection of galleries and boutiques, trendy bars and award-winning eateries, including no fewer than three Michelin-starred restaurants. For foodies, Leith Market (every Saturday) is the perfect place to pick up fresh local produce, before tucking into some delicious street food. The Shore is served by an excellent range of local services and amenities, particularly in the bustling shopping area around the Foot of the Walk and Great Junction Street. Ocean Terminal shopping centre offers a wealth of shopping and leisure facilities including a variety of high-street stores, a selection of family restaurants, a multi-screen cinema, and a 24-hour gym.
The Shore is within the catchment area for well-regarded primary and secondary schools and enjoys fantastic public transport links into the city centre. It also provides swift and easy to Edinburgh City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport, and the M8/M9 motorway networks.
