Located in the highly sought after and central area of the New Town, this excellent traditional purpose built Georgian double upper flat benefits from an east west outlook with views to the rear over the Firth of Forth over to Fife. The flat would lend itself to being a fantastic family home but could equally suit an upmarket student let. The property is within close walking distance of all the amenities and attractions of the City Centre and nearby Stockbridge with its mix of cosmopolitan cafes shops and restaurants. The property has recently been fully redecorated and offers bright, flexible and well-proportioned accommodation and also includes an under pavement cellar.

Stairs lead up to the fourth floor where there are three further bedrooms, two with storage closets and a bathroom.
The property is also HMO compliant for 5 bedrooms.
