The Engine Yard on Leith Walk is one of Edinburgh’s most exciting new places to live. Once the city’s historic tram depot, this iconic industrial landmark has been sensitively restored into an architecturally distinctive, urban community.

The stie’s listed structures now house a stunning selection of contemporary apartments, duplexes and penthouses. Each high-specification home has been finished to an exquisite standard, with space and light maximised through the open-plan design and dual aspect windows. Some homes have balconies, roof decks and private gardens, offering spectacular views of Edinburgh.

With vibrant Leith on your doorstep and Edinburgh’s tramway connecting with the city centre in under 5 minutes, where better to embrace urban living?

Conveniently located in vibrant Leith, The Engine Yard belongs to a hive of creativity and cultural diversity packed with chic eating and drinking spots, delicious delis and eclectic shops all on the doorstep. For a more mainstream offering, the retail paradise known as St James Quarter is easily accessible too.

On foot, the city centre – and highlights including York Place, St Andrew’s Square, George Street, Waterloo Place and The Bridges – is less than 15 minutes away. But the newly opened tram link means you can be there in under five. Waverley Station is around a 15 minute-walk away.

 Health and Wellbeing
3.7
Since the outbreak of Covid in 2020, the health and quality of life for ourselves and our families has become more of a priority than ever, and one of the fundamental considerations in choosing where we live. There are a host of ingredients in measuring this, and we calculate our Health & Wellbeing rating using many factors.
 Transport Links
4.3
Being within easy reach of people and places for work or leisure is a top consideration when choosing your brand new home. Can you commute easily by private or public transport, and are there routes to close by for the places you’ll want to go to? Would it be safe to leave the car at home and cycle somewhere instead? Are there convenient EV charging points in the local area?
 Mobile Connectivity
4.0
In our digital world, it’s ever more important to ensure the range and quality of services for phones and other devices can handle daily demands.  We calculate our mobile connectivity rating to include the strength and reliability of mobile signals and broadband speeds.
 Education and Amenities
4.0
Education and Amenities covers things which are vital to everyday life, whether it’s somewhere to buy groceries and other essentials, a place to enjoy leisure time and for families, an area with schooling which is easy to get to from home
