Edinburgh flat for sale with “panoramic” views of the city

A CITY centre home with “panoramic” views of Edinburgh castle and the city skyline has come up for sale in one of the capital’s most exclusive streets.

Those who arrange a viewing will be struck by the private 40 sq m sun terrace’s view over Edinburgh Academy’s Newfield Recreation Ground and taking in Calton Hill, Salisbury Crags and the Balmoral Hotel on Princes Street.

Designed by Richard Murphy Architects, the three-bedroom 177 sq m ground floor flat is located in a gated development with shared landscaped gardens and private underground parking.

With a contemporary design, the Kinnear Road property has a one-stop home entertainment system and a sophisticated integrated heating, lighting and security system that can be operated from a mobile phone.

Combined with its penthouse-style windows and open plan living area, the current owners are confident the property will attract a great deal of interest at offers of more than £1,450,000.

Karen Fleming, Senior Sales Negotiator at upmarket property specialist Simpson & Marwick, said she would encourage potential viewers to come and take in the stunning view for themselves.

She said: “While the abundance of parks, trees and public spaces is one of the things that makes Edinburgh such a special city, it’s becoming increasingly rare to find somewhere so centrally located which offers views of greenery this good.

“As part of the Inverleith Conservation Area the character of the area is safe and protected for generations to come.”

Situated in Inverleith, the property is on the doorstep of Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden and the 54-acre Inverleith Park with its tree-lined walks, parklands and boating pond.

The property is a short walk from the bustling Stockbridge area, which contains shops, delis, cafes and restaurants and a weekly Sunday market.

The property is also ideally situated close to some of Edinburgh’s best known private schools, including Fettes College and The Edinburgh Academy, and also lies in the catchment area of state Flora Stevenson Primary and Broughton High schools.

Karen added: “The property is situated just over a mile from the city’s main financial business and entertainment districts as well as the recently opened St James Quarter, an upmarket mix-used entertainment and shopping complex.

“Stylish, spacious and ready to walk-in and call home, professional couples and those in need of a city-centre base in Edinburgh are likely to find that this ticks all the boxes and more.”

Simpson & Marwick traces its roots back to 1886, and has over 135 years’ worth of experience.

Employing 30 staff, the firm has offices in both Edinburgh and North Berwick.
