Property Description

Full description


The property is a superbly located central flat entered at ground floor level. Because of the slope of the ground it also offers the security and quiet of first floor level with rear aspect over courtyards. The freshly decorated accommodation is ideal for young professionals or use as a pied-a-terre or holiday let. All fitted carpets and blinds are included in the sale as are the hob, oven, hood and fridge in the kitchen. There are some original sanded and varnished pine and laminate floors. There is white meter electric heating. Security is afforded by entryphone controlled stair access.

Edinburgh historic Old Town clusters around the High Street, known also as the ‘Royal Mile’, it connects Edinburgh Castle to the Scottish Parliament Building and Holyrood Palace. Three or four minutes away are Waverley Station, Princes Street with its generous gardens and Scott Monument, gateway to the New Town with excellent shopping, bars, bistros and restaurants. The flat is within easy walking distance of the Festival, Kings and Traverse Theatres, plus the Lyceum, Usher Hall and the Film House, several Art Galleries and the Royal Scottish Museum, all of which contribute to Edinburgh’s rich year-round cultural life, crowned by the annual Fringe Festival in August. Edinburgh University’s Old Quad and George Square campus buildings together with Edinburgh College of Art are all very close by. To benefit from all the many and varied facilities of the City Centre, this very central EH1 location would be hard to beat. Regular and frequent public transport services (shortly to include the new trams) give access to the rest of Edinburgh. The nearby trains and easily accessed Airport also make this flat ideal for commuters.
