Complimented by a Juliet balcony with a plate glass guard, overlooking the harbour’s basin and a second large window, the living area can easily accommodate large defined spaces for sitting and dining. The bespoke kitchen has matte navy finished wall and floor units with down lit white marble-effect worktops, and high-quality integrated appliances including an oven, hob, dishwasher, and fridge/freezer. A useful utility room houses the washing machine and allows additional storage.

    All three double bedrooms are west facing and have three-quarter height windows. The main bedroom has a built-in wardrobe with sliding doors and an en-suite shower room with large format ceramic tiling, three-piece suite, including a thermostatic shower and heated towel rail.

    In June 2023, the new extension to the Edinburgh Tram’s cross city system connected Leith and Newhaven, via Leith Walk, to the former terminus on York Place, and consequently the new Newhaven terminus stop is close to Royal View, Sandpiper Drive.

    Leith is the iconic, cosmopolitan, and very popular 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.

    Local schools, within catchment, include Victoria Primary School, Trinity Primary School, Trinity Academy and Holy Cross (RC) Primary School so it is ideal for budding families.

    There is a huge choice of restaurants, bistros, and bars. Ocean Terminal Shopping Mall and home to the Royal Yacht, Britania, designed by Sir Terence Conran, is about 1 mile distant and provides a wide selection of high street retailers, as well as fashionable eateries and a multiplex cinema and gym.

    Locally, a David Lloyd Leisure Club and an Alien Rock Climbing Centre provide recreation and exercise resources. There are also access points to the city’s cycle path network and the Water of Leith walkway, within the locality.

    The city centre is approximately 3 miles away and is served by frequent public transport services. Ferry Road offers the area a genuine advantage in terms of access to Edinburgh International Airport, the Queensferry Crossing and the central motorway network.
