Edinburgh, United Kingdom: modern apartment in heart of city

Come visit this December for winter festival. Non-simultaneous. For a magical time see www..edinburghchristmas.com. Our home is available for a non-sim swap from 10 to 22 Dec. Easy walk to Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh Castle, and museums, galleries, arts venues, historic buildings and tourist attractions. Our home is very well placed to discover all our wonderful city has to offer.

Yet we have plenty of green space around: Bruntsfield Links at the top of our street, running into the Meadows, and from there you can stride towards even more open space at Arthur`s Street and Holyrood Park.

Ideal for one couple or two friends, our home has a bay-windowed lounge at the front, while the rear of our apartment overlooks neighbouring homes and gardens. Our west-facing kitchen/diner can seat two. We have an adjacent utility room for our washing machine, tumble dryer, a second fridge and freezer. Our master bedroom has a king-size bed (with good quality mattress) and a compact en-suite shower. The bedroom at the front has a small-double bed, and our third bedroom we use as a study. Our underfloor gas central heating means the apartment is easy to keep warm.

We are on the first floor of this well-maintained building, up one flight of stairs. Being one apartment of six, we know all our neighbours well. We may also be able to offer our secure parking space, depending on our travel arrangements.

Our home is available for you from 10 to 22 Dec 2019 for a non-simultaneous exchange. We’d be looking for a reciprocal visit some time during 2020/21. Also open for simultaneous swaps in 2020.

About the location

Situated close to beautiful and leafy Bruntsfield & Marchmont, popular with young professionals, writers and retirees. At the top of our street, you can see the majestic Edinburgh Castle, less than 30 minutes walk away! Lots of green space to relax in, as well as a great range of local cafes, shops and restaurants. Play pitch and putt or stroll along Bruntsfield Links with Arthur`s Seat (an extinct volcano) watching over you!

Edinburgh city centre and its attractions are within a short walk: the King`s Theatre, Traverse Theatre, Usher Hall, Lyceum, National Gallery of Scotland, as are local cinemas. You can use our great public transport system to visit the Botanic Gardens, the Royal Yacht Britannia, Rossylyn Chapel and many other historic places. You can reach the heather-covered Pentland Hills within a short bus ride for hiking and hilltop views. And our tranquil East Lothian coastline, with beaches and championship golf courses, is also easily accessible by road or rail.

We are only 12/13 minutes level walk from Haymarket Station for trips North to the Highlands of Scotland, and for easy travel to London, Manchester, York, etc. Edinburgh Airport is a short tram or bus ride away for connections to European and international cities.

We will take great care of your home and possessions. Happy to house-sit too; and to prepare your home for your next guests. Can’t exchange to a home that has or has recently had pets due to allergies.
