136/4 Constitution Street is a superb 1 bedroom 2nd floor apartment benefiting from south facing windows, a balcony and an allocated garage parking space. Situated in the fashionable area of Leith, this unique property forms part of a small development constructed in 2003, set back from the main road, tucked behind an impressive Georgian villa.

Accessed via a shared entrance with video door entry phone system, the apartment is on the 2nd floor.  The bright, spacious and well presented accommodation has underfloor heating throughout and comprises:  an impressive, expansive open plan kitchen/dining/living room and balcony, all with views over South Leith Parish Church; double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and ensuite bathroom; shower room; and hallway with large built in storage cupboard housing the washing machine/tumble dryer.


Leith is situated a short distance to the north of the city centre, it is an area renowned for its ancient architecture and cultural heritage and today it is home to The Scottish Government and many tourist attractions. Leith has a strong community spirit and hosts its own Festival every year. There are plenty of shopping facilities in the area including an Asda supermarket at Newhaven Harbour and a Tesco Metro on Great Junction Street. Leith now has a vibrant Farmers Market every Saturday. Excellent restaurants (including 2 Michelin starred), the Scottish Malt Whisky Society and a variety of bars are 5 minutes' walk away at The Shore. Ocean Terminal is a short distance away, providing a range of shops and eateries and a multiplex cinema complex. Leith Links is two minutes from the property and has a community garden, orchard and children's playground, bowling club and tennis courts. The Playhouse Theatre and the Omni Centre cinema complex are close by at the top of Leith Walk. Waverley Station and St Andrews Square bus station are also easily accessible. Efficient bus services run to and from the city centre and there are good road links to all major motorway networks. Good schooling is easily accessible in both the state and private sectors.


The flat has a fantastic private south facing balcony which is extremely peaceful as it is set well back from the main road, offering views over the "secret garden" in adjacent South Leith Parish Church grounds.


The property benefits from a parking space in a shared garage situated to the rear of the building. Further unrestricted parking is available on Constitution Street.
