11 Gorgie road sits in the beautifully landscaped grounds of AMA’s Springwell development. This newly built lodge house would be the perfect new home for a small family or couple while still feeling close to Edinburgh’s city centre.
Internally the property comprises of an entrance hallway with sizeable storage cupboards. Off the hallway is the living room/kitchen/dining room. The modern fully fitted kitchen is well positioned in the corner of the room meaning it is out the way but still in a position where you can be social while preparing food and entertaining guests. The main room offers space for a large dining table and sofas providing a free-flowing environment for both social occasions and cosy nights in. Also located on the ground floor are a sizeable double bedroom with built in wardrobes as well as a chic family shower-room with beautiful ceramic tiling and white sanitary ware.
Area and development:
Springwell is the latest offering by award winning Scottish developers AMA Homes. Sitting in beautifully landscaped grounds where three Edinburgh areas of Dalry, Gorgie and Ardmillan converge. Springwell is ideally placed to take advantage of all Edinburgh has to offer.
AMA have revitalised this long neglected site, restoring the landmark grade C listed building at its heart and creating 48 superb new homes: 35 apartments, 5 duplexes, 2 lodge houses and 6 townhouses.
The grounds provide parking for 38 vehicles and there is an extensive bike store for those wishing to utilise Edinburgh’s ever expanding cycle network.
Springwell sits to the west of the city centre and benefits from an abundance of bus services to take you into the centre of town and beyond. A 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Haymarket from where you can access the national rail network and Edinburgh’s trams which can take you out west to the airport or east to the end of the city centre and in the future to Leith.
Edinburgh Airport, Edinburgh Bypass and the M8 to Glasgow are a twenty minute drive away and in 30 mins you can be driving across the bridges northward to Fife, Perth and beyond to the Scottish highlands.
The nearby Union Canal offers a range of leisure activities including rowing, kayaking and paddleboarding. The towpath along the canal is a wonderful route to use to stretch your legs whether that be by jogging, walking or cycling.
Gorgie and Dalry are packed full of coffee shops, eateries and independent grocery stores. If you see yourself as a chef, you will love having a range of international supermarkets on your doorstep as well as bakeries green grocers and butchers. Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Lidl and Co-op are all within a 10 minute walk for the bigger weekly shops.
