Brandon Terrace tenement home swap

A centrally located flat on two floors on the third (top) floor of a traditional Edinburgh tenement from the late 1890s. We have recently converted our attic to create a spacious, light and airy "upstairs" which includes a shower room, an excellent bedroom for a boy needing space (single bed with second bed underneath that can be used as separate or double bed) and a double room with dressing room off.

Downstairs there is a third bedroom, a large kitchen/dining room and two smart public rooms with a piano and lots of books. There is a large shared sunny garden on the ground floor. Our neighbours are very friendly and welcoming.

The flat is very near to the Royal Botanic Garden and several parks and playgrounds; on a road with several cafes and a short bus ride or walk away from city centre shops, train and bus stations. Edinburgh is full of excellent attractions for all ages - castle, zoo, hill walks, art galleries, theatres, festivals, cinemas etc. A short bus or drive to the beach and out to the countryside.

We have an elderly and rather grand cat who will need to be fed, and who enjoys company but is very low maintenance.

We are most likely to request exchanges during school holidays although Scottish holidays tend to be earlier than other parts of the UK. As we are both working in the arts it's unlikely that we will be looking for swaps during August when the Festival is on...
