    lol l thought ‘Yuppie Flats’ was the name of the estate :-) looks like a nice spot, lovely shot Tom

  • Thank you Trudi, a few years ago, Leith was a run down dock area full of old warehouses, now it is a desirable place to live, if you can afford it …

    Flats, Apartments or Units in “Oz” Tom, depending to some extent on their location … these would most likely be described as “Luxury Apartments in desirable location” :)

  • Thank you Trish, it certainly is a desirable location …
