Sunny, central and peaceful flat with 2 double bedrooms in fantastic neighbourhood. 15 mins to Princes St. Plenty of independent shops, bars, restaurants and galleries on the doorstep. Water of Leith and Royal Botanical Gardens a short stroll away
This is a homely, sunny and peaceful home from home in a great Edinburgh neighbourhood. The flat is on the top floor and looks out over a back garden which gets plenty of sunshine and has tables and chairs for dining or just relaxing with the paper or a good book. It is situated on a quiet, dead-end street but with plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants and independent shops right on the doorstep.
It is 10 minutes walk from Stockbridge which runs a farmers market on a Sunday, and 15 minutes from Princes Street. The Water of Leith and the Royal Botanical Gardens are a short stroll away too.
There are plenty of handy food shops for stocking up, from the Tesco store round the corner, the nearby fishmonger, healthfood shop on Broughton Street and nearby fresh fruit and vegetable market every Saturday.
The brilliant bus service leaving from the end of the street takes you straight into the centre of town if you need to travel faster, and the Edinburgh tram stops at the top of Broughton Street, taking you out to Edinburgh Airport in peace and comfort.
When you step inside the flat, you immediately become aware of the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere - perfect after travelling or a busy day in the city.
Bedroom one overlooks the garden and has a king-sized bed, desk, fully stocked bookcases, and chest of drawers. The bed is incredibly comfortable and is fitted with fresh cotton sheets.
Bedroom two faces out the side of the property and is equipped with a double bed, cupboard and chest of drawers, and fresh cotton sheets.
The lounge and open-plan kitchen is a great space for relaxing and socialising, and overlooks the garden. There is a very comfortable sofa, a dining table which can be expanded to seat four people comfortably, and two other antique chairs for relaxing, reading or watching television.
There is a large collection of covering topics such as cooking and photography, and also various DVDs.
A great stereo system is found on a shelf in the lounge and wall-mounted speakers provide fantastic sound. A handy cable with a 3.5mm jack can be plugged into phones/tablets/laptops so you can listen to music/radio/watch films with great sound quality.
The kitchen was recently fitted and is equipped with a separate fridge and freezer, a ceramic electric hob and oven, and all the usual items such as kettle and toaster.
A walk-in cupboard houses the washing machine, iron and ironing board and boiler for the gas central heating.
Please note there is no dishwasher or microwave.
The bathroom is bright and sunny and is equipped with a modern white suite and a fantastically powerful shower. Guests are provided with clean towels and shampoo.
The flat is also equipped with a comprehensive digital television service and high-speed wifi.
Guests have access to the entire flat. When the property is let out we stay in my girlfriend's flat which isn't too far away, and we are always contactable.

Hi I was born in Edinburgh and lived in the north of Scotland for many years before work brought me back to my brilliant home city.
I work in the public sector during the day and in my spare time enjoy various interests including running, cycling, sailing and skiing.
I love to travel, both in Scotland and internationally, and really enjoy meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I'm a keen photographer and a big fan of music and film.
