About this listing
Lovely characterful Victorian tenement apartment belonging to an artist and a musician.
This lovely three and a half bedroom property belongs to an artist and a musician.
It is on the ground floor of a traditional Victorian tenement in the popular area of Hillside, just east of the city centre. It is in easy walking distance of all major tourist attractions, museums and galleries, and only a 10 minute walk from Princes Street. Cafe Renroc, a good all day cafe, is only a few doors away. Valvona and Crolla, the renowned delicatessen, is a 5 minute walk, as are The Playhouse Theatre, the Omni Centre (cinema and leisure complex) and a wide range of restaurants, bars, boutiques and local food shops. The best views of Edinburgh can be experienced from the top of nearby Calton Hill, and the foot of Arthur's Seat is about a 25 minute walk away - don't forget to bring good walking shoes!
The apartment is furnished simply and comfortably and retains many original features such as decorative cornicework and working shutters. There are stripped floorboards throughout.
