Located in a highly popular area, a stone’s throw from The Meadows, this top-floor corner-aspect flat represents a rare opportunity to acquire a period home in desirable Newington. The classic tenement exists within a conservation area and has retained a wealth of original features, including timber sash-and-case windows. Close to the city centre, Edinburgh University and the open green spaces the property represents a prime opportunity for the investor or the diy market.

The views from this top floor include a view over the beautifully designed and newly built National Library of Scotland.

A fire in the boiler needs attention but very little damage was actually done, particularly as the property has a large loft space above where the fire seems to only have done some inconsequential damage to the ceiling. No damage can be observed on the peaked roof above and no water damage can be observed.

The property has a modern smart meter and electrics as well as radiators throughout. Also included is a separate toilet and bathroom both bosting modern fittings.

Access via a secure entry system, a shared stairwell leads up to the flat’s front door.


Located on the south side of the capital, approximately two miles from the city centre, Newington offers an array of housing options, from traditional tenements to grand villas, suiting every stage of life, and is popular with students due to its fantastic proximity to The University of Edinburgh campuses. This diverse demographic is reflected in the dynamic social scene and atmosphere, which is fuelled by an exciting blend of artisan coffee shops, pubs, bars, and cuisine from all corners of the globe. This is heightened further during the summer months, when the area is transformed into the beating heart of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Newington is also home to a wealth of cultural attractions, namely the Festival Theatre, the Queen’s Hall and Summerhall multi-arts complex.

Residents enjoy access to an eclectic mix of independent shops, express supermarkets and high-street retailers along Nicolson Street and South Clerk Street, with more extensive shopping facilities available at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre. Newington is within the catchment area for well-regarded schools and is served by comprehensive public transport links travelling across the city, day and night.
