East Hermitage is a small modern development directly adjoining the Restalrig Road, towards its northern, Leith, end. It is a combination of blocks of flats and an assortment of town houses, interspersed with communal landscaped areas and allocated parking bays.

This is a ground floor, two-bedroom flat; it is well presented and, as the majority of its windows are either east or west facing, it is bright. It exemplifies the ease and convenience of present day living – ergonomic design, effective sound and temperature insulation and good light levels.

The flat’s front door opens on to the hall that gives direct access to all rooms and has two cupboards off. The comfortable living room has a corner door and is dual aspect, the main twin full height windows, fitted with up-to-date versions of traditional window guards, face east and there is a further pair of smaller windows on the adjacent wall. The naturally lit kitchen has a plentiful array of both floor and wall mounted storage units on three of the four walls, work surfaces with tiled splash backs and integrated appliances.

The larger of the two double bedrooms looks out to the west over a charming communal garden laid to grass, with borders and shrubberies and a feature pergola that is enclosed by a wrought iron fence. The bedroom has a wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors. The second double bedroom has fitted clothes storage units and an alcove, with built-in side tables, to accommodate the bed. The tiled shower room has a white three-piece suite and the basin sits in a vanity unit. The flat is double glazed and has electric heating that is employed exclusively throughout the block.

It is factored by James Gibb at approximately £650 per annum and this charge includes block building insurance, communal garden maintenance and stair cleaning and lighting.

Area:
To the east of Edinburgh’s city centre, Easter Hermitage adjoins Lochend Road towards its northern, Leith, end and is a desirable residential area close to the thriving Shore district of Leith that tempts with a range of bars, bistros, Michelin-starred restaurants and quirky specialist shops. 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.

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, it has an excellent public transport service. The A1 to the south is a short drive from where the City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport the Forth Crossing and the central belt motorway system can be reached.

In 2023, the new extension to the Edinburgh Tram’s cross city system will connect Leith and Newhaven, via Constitution Street to Leith Walk and the current terminus at York Place that will be demolished, as always intended.
