The property is situated on Carpet Lane in the popular Shore area of Leith approximately 2.5 miles north-east of Princes Street in Edinburgh city centre.
Carpet Lane is close to the junction of Bernard Street (A199) which is the principal thoroughfare leading to Commercial Street and The Shore.
The immediate area is mixed use in nature with a wide range of bars, restaurants, and offices within a short walk of the property. Nearby occupiers include Sainsbury Local, Pizza Express, Restaurant Martin Wishart, Denholm Associates and the Maritime and Coastguard Agency.
The subjects comprise the third floor of a five storey C-listed building of traditional stone construction with a pitched pantile roof.
Access to the premises is from a secure common stairwell off Carpet Lane. The office provides cellular accommodation around a central hall and is currently in use as a business centre. The partitions are non-structural and could be stripped out by an owner occupier and the space made open plan to take advantage of the numerous windows serving the floor.
IT cabling is contained within perimeter data trunking and there is a generous tea prep area. WC facilities are available just outside the office and are mutual to all occupiers.
Free car parking is available in Maritime Square adjacent to Carpet Lane and also in nearby streets. The area also enjoys excellent provisions of public transport with regular bus services to nearby Ocean Terminal and City Centre destinations. This is due to be further enhanced with the proposed Newhaven tram extension.
