Comfortable family home - South Edinburgh home swap
We love our house. It's in a great part of Edinburgh - we're on a quiet, residential street but it is about a half hour walk / 10 minute bus journey into the town centre.
Our home has a decent sized kitchen with a table that seats 8 - french doors lead out onto a raised deck with views of Arthur's Seat, the large (extinct!) volcano which dominates Edinburgh's skyline. We have 3 bedrooms: 1 double, 1 with bunk beds and 1 with a single bed. There is a living room with stove and a TV room with a large flat screen TV. There are lovely walks nearby at Blackford Hill and the Hermitage of Braids.
There is on-street parking, but you really don't need a car as we're close to a bus stop and if you like walking, you can just explore the city on foot.
About the location
Quiet, residential street. Several shops just at the end of the street (small grocery stores, cafe, take aways). Organic shop and cafe just 10 minutes walk away.
Edinburgh is a fantastic city - there is no where we'd rather live but we're keen to travel and explore. Plus we'd love to share the experience of Edinburgh with others - so much to see and do!
