First appearing on the Ordnance Survey Map of 1826, this idyllic and historic ‘C’ Listed Georgian sandstone lower villa with externally shuttered windows is situated on cobbled Newhaven Main Street and is in close proximity to Leith.

It was converted by Ian Lindsay & Partners, the famous Edinburgh architects, in about 1970 from a two storey, 3-bay symmetrical, rectangular-plan house with its shop, at ground level, facing the Main Street into the two villas that are present today.

Entered through a traditional double leaf front door, the villa has a vestibule that leads directly into a spacious south facing living room that has an adjoining kitchen, thus allowing the overall room a dual aspect. The fitted kitchen has both floor and wall storage units, plentiful work surfaces and integrated hob, oven, extractor hood and the fridge / freezer. There is an internal hall, separating the living area from the bedrooms and bathroom that has a very useful built-in cupboard. There are two comfortable double bedrooms and the accommodation is completed by a naturally lit bathroom with modern three piece suite that includes a screened right handed shower bath. The villa has gas fired central heating and traditional windows. There is the benefit of unrestricted parking on Newhaven Main Street, in the vicinity of the property.

The popular Newhaven district of Edinburgh lies on the southern coastline of the Firth of Forth.

Locally, there is a variety of amenities and an envious mix of restaurants, bars and cafes on the super fashionable Shore area of Leith. There is a 24 – hour ASDA close by and a large and eclectic choice of shopping, including numerous high street stores, plus a multiplex cinema, an M&S food hall and a gym at Ocean Terminal. Once the new tram link is complete, not only will Ocean Terminal be easy to access, but so will the new St James Quarter at the head of Leith Walk.

Public transport will not only be offered by the new tram system, but buses will continue to run from Lindsay Road and New Haven Road, with connections to the city centre and surrounding areas.
