Property description

This one bedroom first floor flat is located within a Georgian tenement on William Street. It is situated to the rear of the building, so it is exceptionally quiet.

Internally the flat has been completely redecorated and offers a double bedroom, sitting room with dining area, modern kitchen and bathroom.

The large sitting room contains a dining table and chairs, sofa, armchair and TV with DVD player.

In the bedroom, there is a double bed together with a chest of drawers, bedside cabinet and walk-in wardrobe. There is also a digital click radio with an iPod/iPhone dock.

The kitchen is well equipped with an electric cooker, microwave and washing machine.

There is also a spacious bathroom with a bath, shower (over the bath), wash hand basin and toilet.

A welcome pack will be provided which will include oatcakes, butter, milk, tea, coffee and a bowl of fruit.

The surrounding area is known as the west end village and contains an interesting range of specialist shops. There is an excellent coffee shop, 'Brass and Copper', a few good pubs, a hairdresser, a shoe shop, several clothes shops and some gift shops. Nearby Shandwick Place offers larger shops and a supermarket.

Parking is available in the immediate vicinity, and free parking is approximately a mile away.

Being located in the city centre, the flat is easily accessible via bus or train. There is a stop for the airport bus approximately 300m away on Shandwick Place, and the two railway stations are each within a ten or fifteen minute walk.

Keywords: First floor flat in quaint cobbled street in the west end.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I was born in Edinburgh and have lived here for most of my life. I work as a Chartered Surveyor for a property development company. I also enjoy learning languages, skiing, cycling, art and cooking.

Why the Owner Chose Edinburgh:
The flat is ideal for a city break, as it is a great base for exploring central Edinburgh on foot. William Street itself is a very attractive cobbled street, which has been used for the filming of several period dramas.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
William Street forms part of the West End Village, which lies at the western edge of the New Town. It is home to many stylish boutiques as well as a variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants.
