    Flat 9 Academy Lofts, 9 Duncan Place is a top floor two-bedroom flat that forms part of the factored, Category B listed redevelopment of the former Leith Academy Secondary School by the highly respected Sundial Developments in 2015.

    Originally built in 1930 by Ried & Forbes, notable specialists in school design, the monumental three-storey red brick and cream sandstone symmetrical classically detailed building is prominently sited on the south west corner of Leith Links.

    The flat’s front door opens into the centrally positioned hall that provides access to all rooms and has a large cupboard. The open plan living space incorporating the kitchen has large twin windows overlooking Leith links, a feature brick wall and engineered oak board flooring; the space is large enough to accommodate both sitting and dining areas. The bespoke Italian kitchen is finished to a high specification with Siemens appliances.

    The principal double bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and an en suite shower room with a contemporary adaptation of traditional vertical bathroom boarding. There is a second bedroom and a separate bathroom, again, with bathroom boarding. Both the shower room and the bathroom have Villeroy and Boch suites. The flat has gas fired central heating and double glazing.

    There is a communal central roof-top garden planted with native wildflowers and the flat has an allocated car parking space.

    The factors are Hacking & Paterson and their charges are £300 to £350 quarterly.

    Duncan Place lies approximately two miles north east of Edinburgh’s city centre.

    The flat is on the doorstep of the thriving Shore district of Leith that is famous for its multitude of bars, restaurants, and bistros. Ocean Terminal shopping and leisure complex with multi-screen cinema is also nearby and is shortly to embark on transformational redevelopment. There is a Tesco Superstore on Duke Street, 175 yds. (160 m.) away. The city centre’s vibrant east end including the recently opened St James Quarter is easily accessible and Leith Links provides the largest back garden imaginable and is an ideal space for recreation and exercise.

    The area is well served by public transport services, including The Shore tram stop on Constitution Street. The A1 and the Edinburgh city by-pass are easily accessible and, in turn, provide links to the major motorway networks.
