Location

If you would like to live in the heart of one of the world's most stunning and vibrant cities then look no further than Edinburgh's New Town. You will never be more than a few steps away from high end fashion, international art and entertainment venues and a food scene that is second to none. Many of Scotland's best restaurants and bars are within walking distance of your front door, while others equally as good are awaiting your discovery down inconspicuous cobbled lanes and alleys.

Edinburgh's historic New Town area, built in the mid-to-late 18th Century in response to overcrowding in what is now known as the Old Town, is a marvel of urban planning and elegant architecture. The New Town buildings are typically of a neo-classical style showing bold classical columns with decorative stonework to the exterior and tall ceilings and ornate cornicing internally. Many of these handsome buildings have been modernised as flats and offices but even the mews buildings, once housing servants and stables, are considered extremely desirable.

Shopping is the name of the game on George Street where you will find all manner of high-end designer stores, fashionable retailers and a seemingly unlimited array of cafes and restaurants to help revive weary shoppers by day, and bars and clubs to keep the buzz going at night. The more relaxed may prefer to peruse the array of galleries or enjoy the latest west end touring production at the renowned Edinburgh Playhouse.

For respite from the hustle and bustle of city living, the New Town is blessed with the green spaces of the Royal Botanic Garden, Inverleith Park and the Water of Leith Walkway as well as the exclusive and beautifully manicured private residents' gardens. And when it comes to leaving town you are at the epicentre of Edinburgh's transport system with trains, buses, trams and taxis fanning out in all directions. Inner city living never looked so good.
