Flat 1 is an appealing, strikingly renovated, one bedroom, ground floor fat that will make either an ideal home or a very shrewd purchase for an investor.

Part of an intrinsic and unique piece of Edinburgh’s architectural history, 2 Seafield Road is the former Seafield Baths and Hotel, dating back to 1813 and made even more notable as the baths used seawater. Now Category B listed and converted into three flats, the building makes an important and consequently significant contribution to this part of Leith.

Having entered through a secure communal hall; the flat’s front door opens into the hall that has a large built-in cupboard and gives access to all rooms. The living room that looks over Seafield Road encompasses a modern surround kitchen with floor and wall storage, work surfaces with splash backs, a breakfast bar and integrated appliances. The comfortably sized double bedroom is to the back of the flat and has a built-in wardrobe and the accommodation is completed by a modern, naturally lit shower room with three-piece suite. The flat has traditional sash and case windows and electric heating. To the back of the building, there is a drying green and a cordon sanitaire in front of the flat, between the building and the pavement.

Area:
Leith Links is a desirable and fashionable residential area of Edinburgh, to the east of the city centre.

In proximity, the vibrant cosmopolitan Shore tempts with a range of bars, bistros, Michelin-starred restaurants and quirky specialist shops and nearby Ocean Terminal has many high-street stores, restaurants, an M&S Food Hall, gym, and multi-screen cinema. It is also where The Royal Yacht Britannia is birthed.

At the top of Leith Walk, connecting the city centre to Leith, the dynamic and exciting new St James’s Quarter is under construction and due to open very shortly, providing a world-class retail, leisure, hotel and residential amenity. The Playhouse Theatre and Omni Centre are also close by. Leith is the iconic port area of Edinburgh and is a thriving part of the city. The modern and traditional mix of buildings contributes to Leith’s charm and consequent appeal. It is a high amenity area with a wide selection of convenience and specialist shopping, with the additional benefit of a Sainsbury’s on Leith Walk, a Tesco superstore on Duke Street and an ASDA at Sandpiper Drive.

Exercise and recreation are well catered for: Leith Links and other public parks and The Water of Leith Walkway; Leith Victoria Swim Centre; two local outdoor bowling clubs and; Leith Franklin Cricket Club.

Ideally placed for those working within the city centre and has an excellent public transport service. In 2023, the new extension to the Edinburgh Tram’s cross city system will connect Leith and Newhaven, via Leith Walk, to the current terminus at York Place.

A short drive accesses onto the beginning of the A1 from where the city bypass and other areas can be reached.
