This bright, well-presented ground-floor apartment forms part of a substantial four-storey building with a cream rendered exterior and red facing-brick features, all beneath a pitched tiled roof. The easily-managed interior has recently been redecorated and has new curtains and floor coverings in most areas. Benefits include double glazing, a security entry phone system and a modern electric heating system with individual timing controls to each radiator.
Arranged around an ‘L’ shaped hallway, the well-proportioned layout provides a spacious living room, a fitted kitchen with breakfast bar, and two double bedrooms – both with generous built-in wardrobe space. These rooms all face south-east. There is an attractive newly-fitted bathroom incorporating an electric shower over the bath.
The main entrance to Number 1/3 is approached from the development's car park on the north-west side of the building and a part-glazed timber door leads to the communal hallway. There is also a convenient secondary entrance from a pathway off Dryden Street.
The popular Pilrig district lies to the north-east of the city centre, only a short distance from Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town and within easy reach of Princes Street, Waverley Station and other well-known landmarks. This convenient position affords immediate access to a wide range of shops on Leith Walk as well as restaurants, cinemas and bars. Of particular note are the Omni Leisure Centre, John Lewis and the St James Centre (presently under reconstruction), the Playhouse Theatre and Ocean Terminal. The flat is also within walking distance of the vibrant independent restaurants and bars at the Shore. Regular bus services offer connections to many parts of the city, and both primary and secondary schools are within easy reach. The green spaces of Pilrig Park and the Water of Leith Walkway are nearby, offering pleasant walking and cycling routes.
Hawthornden Place sits on the north-west side of Dryden Street, which is most easily approached from Pilrig Street
The grounds surrounding the flats are well-kept, and residents have access to two communal areas of garden which are laid to lawn and surrounded by hedging and well-trimmed conifers.
The property for sale has its own allocated parking space located beside the north-east boundary of the development
