4/18 Lochend Road
Set within a charming schoolhouse conversion, B-Listed and dating from the Victorian period, this third-floor duplex apartment promises a uniquely stylish city home, incorporating two bedrooms, two bathrooms and superbly light and airy living spaces, including a vaulted dining area and a galleried living room. The apartment is further supplemented by impeccable modern interiors, delightful scenic views, private parking and a prime central location within strolling distance of Leith Links, shops and transport links, and an eclectic array of entertainment venues, including the Shore’s fashionable bars and eateries.
Accessed via a secure entry system, the apartment is reached using a convenient lift service or a well-maintained communal stairwell. Welcoming you into the home is a spacious entrance hall (with useful storage) enjoying neutral décor and wood-styled flooring – a tasteful decorative finish which flows fluently into the adjoining dining kitchen. Here, the building’s historic past is instantly apparent with a double-height area, now designated for seated dining, flooded in sunny natural light from vast twin arched windows with a southerly-facing aspect.
Promising an impressive, yet relaxed setting for entertaining, with additional space for comfortable furniture, the dining area openly adjoins the kitchen featuring a further charming arched window and space for a central breakfasting island, if desired. Fitted along one wall, with the statement focal feature of an integrated oven and a five-ring gas burner with a sleek stainless-steel splashback and an ultra-modern hood, is an array of complementary wood-styled and steelfronted cabinets. This stylishly-appointed space is further equipped with a granite worktop (lit by ambient downlighting), an integrated eye-level microwave, a dishwasher and a fridge freezer, whilst a deep built-in cupboard/ utility room, reached from the dining area, contains the boiler and provides discreet storage.
Completing this level of accommodation is one of the two generous double bedrooms on offer, served by the family bathroom. Illuminated by a large arched window, the bedroom echoes the attractive muted décor of the kitchen and hall and comes complete with a fitted wardrobe. The bright bathroom, offset by warmly-toned décor and chic tiling, includes a wall-mounted WC-suite and a bathtub with an overhead shower and a glazed screen. Upstairs, a landing leads to the master suite and a delightful living room with a gallery overlooking the dining kitchen and taking in its magnificent arched windows. Cosily nestled beneath the eaves but offering plentiful space for furniture, including a study area, the lightly-toned living room is comfortably carpeted and lit by an internal feature window and dual-aspect skylights.
Presented in an identical fashion and heightened by twin southerly-facing skylight windows offering rooftop views towards Arthur’s Seat, the neighbouring master suite provides ample space for furniture, excellent incorporated storage, and a sunny en-suite bathroom. Finished with aqua-toned décor and attractive tiling, with a chic mosaic trim, the bathroom incorporates a wall-mounted WC-suite and vanity storage, a chrome towel radiator and a corner bathtub with an overhead shower. The property benefits from efficient gas central heating and partial double glazing. Externally, the development includes a gated parking area with an allocated space, whilst, lying just a stone’s throw away, is the open green space of Leith Links, perfect for outdoor recreation. Factor: The factor is managed by James Gibb at an approximate monthly cost of £85.
