Enjoying coastal vistas from all main rooms, as well as a balcony promising spectacular views of the iconic Forth Bridges, this luxury duplex apartment, set on the fourth and fifth floors of an exclusive development in Newhaven, includes two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and two generous living areas. The development boasts secure entry, a communal lift service, access to landscaped communal gardens, and secure allocated parking.

The front door opens into a hall housing built-in storage and a WC. Leading off the hall is the first of the home’s two living areas, both sea-facing and fitted with handsome wood-styled flooring. This first reception area is ideal for dining and entertaining, with direct access to a spacious balcony, with unspoilt views across the Firth of Forth, and the kitchen. Also accessible from the hall, the stylish white-and-chrome kitchen is well-equipped, boasting an integrated eye-level oven, a five-ring burner with a feature hood, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. A utility room leading off the hall houses an integrated washing machine and a freestanding American-style fridge freezer available by separate negotiation. Completing this level of accommodation is one of the home’s two sea-facing, plushly-carpeted double bedrooms, accompanied by built-in storage and an en-suite bathroom with a WC-suite and a shower-over-bath.

Upstairs, a landing affords access to the second reception area, enjoying a vast window framing ever-changing sea views. Next door, the master bedroom features a fitted wardrobe and a deluxe en-suite bathroom with a WC-suite, a bathtub, and a shower enclosure. Also located on this level and accessed from the landing are a home study and a dressing room. Underfloor heating and double glazing ensure year-round warmth.

Lying approximately two miles northeast of Edinburgh, and nestled between Trinity and Leith, is the desirable district of Newhaven. Situated on the Firth of Forth, this historic district was once a thriving fishing village and harbour and is now earmarked as one of the city’s conservation areas. Newhaven has developed greatly in recent years and offers residents an excellent range of local amenities, including a 24-hour ASDA superstore and Ocean Terminal, which is home to high-street stores and restaurants, a multi-screen cinema and a 24-hour gym. Neighbouring Leith also offers a wide range of shops, bars, and restaurants. For sports and fitness enthusiasts, Newhaven certainly delivers, with extensive facilities at the David Lloyd Gym and Club and a fantastic indoor climbing centre at Alien Rock. For a more relaxing option, Newhaven’s waterfront forms part of the Edinburgh promenade, which extends along Granton towards Cramond Beach. Schooling options with Newhaven’s catchment area include Victoria Primary School and the Trinity Academy. The area’s already excellent public transport links will be further enhanced with the forthcoming extension of the tramline, which will terminate in Newhaven and provide direct links to the airport via the city centre. For those wishing to travel further afield, Newhaven’s northerly position enables easy access to the Queensferry Crossing and Edinburgh City Bypass, as well as Edinburgh Airport and the motorway network.
