Stunning family home in sought-after seaside location hits the market in Edinburgh
The opportunity to buy in one of Edinburgh's most exclusive postcodes has just arrived as a double upper villa, perfect for a family, has hit the market.
Located in the capital’s highly sought-after residential area of Joppa, 39 Argyle Crescent offers buyers a rare harmony between seaside tranquillity and city living.
Potential buyers are being encouraged to act quickly, as the area has among the fastest selling homes in Edinburgh.
Just a five-minute walk to Portobello beach, the charming property is the perfect choice for buyers looking for a serene family home with comfort, character and fresh sea air.
With its own private garage and a south-facing rear garden, 39 Argyle Crescent has an abundance of space and is on the market with Warners Solicitors and Estate Agents for offers over £520,000.
Clare Cain, a publisher and current owner at 39 Argyle Crescent, said: “We’re certainly what you would term reluctant sellers.
“For the past 13 years, this has been the perfect family home and we loved raising our children here. The house is incredibly spacious and bright, with most windows facing south.
“With our children growing up and beginning to move out, my husband and I have decided it is sensible to downsize.
“If we could stay in the same street, we definitely would. The neighbours have nearly all been here for years and the area has an incredible community feel to it. Every time you go outside you will no doubt bump into someone you know. Everyone is very welcoming.
“With the beach being only a five-minute walk away, the area is great for families with dogs or for anyone who enjoys walking.
“Newhailes estate, which belongs to National Trust for Scotland is also a short drive away. You can just hop in your car and in 5 minutes you are in a lovely part of the countryside.
“I honestly cannot fault this house or the area. We have made many great memories and friends here. It’s a beautiful street.”
April Harper, Property Sales Negotiator at Warners, said: “Joppa homes have been in extremely high demand, especially over the last year. The elegance of the neighbourhood, paired with its easy accessibility to the city centre, and close proximity to Portobello beach, makes it a very desirable area to settle down in.
“Those who already live here often prefer to stay within the area when they are looking to up or downsize.
“We have also observed a rising demand from buyers south of the border, looking to relocate back north.
“Homeowners in Joppa really do get the full package and this home is a clear example of that.”
39 Argyle Crescent hits a unique balance between a modern feel and classic accents.
The luxurious villa is laid out over two floors and has four double bedrooms, a living room, a sitting room, a flexible study space that could become a fifth bedroom - and a large kitchen with a dining area.
The classic marble fireplace, timber flooring and cornice work in the property’s spacious living room is highlighted beautifully thanks to its tall bay window.
The first floor bedrooms benefit from spacious storage options, one with a large built-in-wardrobe, while the upper landing bedrooms enjoy an attractive outlook to the rear garden through the bright dormer windows.
Equipped with a family shower room on each floor, the property is perfect for modern family living.
With Brunstane railway station, the A1 and the City Bypass within easy reach, as well as frequent bus services, Joppa is ideal for commuters.
Joppa is just a short drive away from the shopping facilities in neighbouring town Musselburgh and the Fort Kinnaird retail and leisure complex.
April Harper, Property Sales Negotiator at Warners said: “The list of amenities and entertainment opportunities that Portobello offers is impressive.
“There is a great choice of bars and restaurants along the beach, a swimming pool, a gym, Turkish saunas, sailing and kayaking clubs, a children’s indoor play area, football pitches and two play parks.
“The whole family will find something to love about this place – it’s a picturesque and peaceful environment.
“To appreciate this property’s various features in all their glory, it really is worth arranging a visit soon, as it’s unlikely to be on the market for long.”
