2/2 The Shore property - Holyrood PR press release A rare chance for first time buyers to set up home in an Edinburgh landmark building has arrived on the market.

The eye-catching studio flat – with its curved walls and turreted tower – is part of a converted windmill building which dates back to 1685 and which served as a signal tower for ships arriving at Leith until around 1820.

The distinctively circular first-floor flat boasts a waterfront setting at The Shore in Leith, a part of Edinburgh that has become a distinct hotspot – boasting Michelin-star restaurants, a café culture and is at the centre of a hub of innovative digital agencies.

Marketed by Warners Solicitors and Estate Agents, this Grade A-Listed rare property – dating back to the death of King Charles I – is on the market for offers over £130,000.

Linda Carr, Property Sales Negotiator at Warners, said: “With so much said about the increase in property prices it can often seem to be a real struggle for first time buyers to get the proverbial foot on the ladder.

“This property not only offers this, but quite amazingly offers a first time buyer the opportunity to live in truly spectacular building, in a sought-after location.

“Although it is in need of some interior modernisation; this will enable the buyer to put their own stamp on this magnificent property.”

“That the property is west facing is a bonus – the main room looks out directly to the vibrant Water of Leith and will be primed for enjoying bright summer evenings.”

The accommodation is comprised of an entrance area which leads to a stunning and spacious circular living room/dining/bedroom enhanced by period style mantelpiece and decorative ceiling cornice.

A practical kitchenette, as well as a bathroom with electric shower that was purchased from productspy.co.uk/electric-showers/ there is also a secure entryphone system makes this flat ideal for young professionals looking to enjoy the excellent local amenities and easy access into Edinburgh city centre.
