Enviably set within easy reach of all the city centre has to offer, this southeast-facing, two-bedroom, first-floor flat forms part of a B-listed building (1956-57) in Edinburgh’s prestigious Old Town.

Characterised by its narrow closes and winding medieval streets, Old Town is the oldest part of Edinburgh and recognised globally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Steeped in history and culture at every turn, the Old Town is home to some of the capital’s most famous buildings and landmarks, namely Edinburgh Castle (perched atop an extinct volcano), St Giles’ Cathedral and the Palace of Holyrood House. The area’s cosmopolitan social scene is driven by diverse pubs and eateries, particularly at the Grassmarket, as well as the trendy bars, clubs and live music venues that now occupy the ancient underground vaults. In addition to a wealth of independent shops and boutiques, the Old Town is within easy walking distance of the main shopping district of Princes Street and George Street, as well as department stores including Harvey Nichols and John Lewis. Residents of the Old Town are never more than a few minutes’ walk from some of the capital’s most beautiful green spaces, including Princes Street Gardens and Holyrood Park, and local schooling is provided at primary and secondary level. Popular with professionals, students, and visitors alike, the Old Town is served by major transport links, including national rail links from Waverley Station, a new tramline to Edinburgh International Airport, and a comprehensive bus network.

Fixtures and Fittings

All fitted floor coverings, light fittings, and integrated kitchen appliances to be included in the sale.
