Central Flat overlooking Park

The flat is located on the first floor (no lift as the it`s a traditional 19th century tenement building). Year built: 1890 size: 95 Sq m. The kitchen (all new appliances and bathrooms have been recently renovated - completely redecorated throughout.

The location of the flat is fantastic and provides a great central location to explore Edinburgh. It`s a great spot to catch the train or buses if you`re planning on visiting outside of the city, like Portobello beach. If you`re planning on staying within the city centre, then the flat is a great base camp to do just that.

About the location

Marchmont is a fabulous neighbourhood on the south side of the city centre. I love this part of the city because it`s in the centre of Edinburgh, but just far enough so you don`t feel like you`re a tourist. You will have a genuine taste of Edinburgh, life as a true local. Edinburgh is a busy city with a lot going on all the time. You`ll be lucky and in a very rare position to live on a street that overlooks a beautiful green space - the Meadows: a ninety acre park with pitch and putt for golf fans, tennis courts, Scottish Croquet Club and beautiful walks all in an authentic residential area away from the bustle & crowds of tourists. Also 10 mins walk from Holyrood Park and Arthurs Seat.There are tennis courts and jogging/cycling paths in the Meadows; a choice of yoga studios 5 minutes walk away; the famous Victor Hugo deli and cafe outside the front door; lots of other cafes, delis and independent shops- a real eclectic mix -all on your doorstep. Getting around.

There is a bus stop (41) just outside the flat and most other bus routes a short walk away but everything is really accessible on foot. The easiest way from the airport is Uber ( about £20) or a taxi (around £30) Or you can get the tram or bus - bus (AIRLINK 100) is cheaper only £7.50 return from the airport into the centre- Waverley Station and get a taxi/Uber from there.
