Welcome to my 1980s flat with its stunning views of the Edinburgh skyline - The Pentlands, the Castle, Arthur's Seat & beyond. There is free parking. It's ideal for the city centre, Botanic Gardens, Leith. Buses are very close & the walkway behind the flat will give you miles of walks, & in 15 mins you'll be at the sea. There are local shops and bars within 5 minutes walk. You hear a bit of traffic but also lots of birds. Mostly, it's peaceful so enjoy the city and then come home to relax.
The flat is on the 2nd floor, which is the top floor, and there isn't a lift. There are 3 flights of stairs to climb with 2 small landings in between. There are 6 flats in the block. I'm on good terms with all my neighbours and I'd like it to stay that way so your thoughtfulness will be appreciated.
For 2019 there will only be one bedroom available in the flat as the second one is going to be used to store some extra personal belongings. The available bedroom contains a king-sized bed with a double wardrobe with hangers, 2 chests of drawers, a bedside cabinet and a shelved unit on which the smart tv sits, at the foot of the bed. Suitcases can be stored under the bed.
If you stay between March and October, you'll not want to close the curtains in the sitting room because the views are great. If you look out of the bedroom windows, you'll see that the sky barely darkens. When there are fireworks from the Castle or Calton Hill, regardless of the time of year, you'll have excellent views of them.
There are supermarkets reasonably close by and you can reach all of them by bus in about 10 minutes. If you're happy to walk, you can get to Morrisons on Ferry Road in about 15 - 20 mins, Tesco at Canonmills can be reached by the walkway and that takes about 20 - 25 minutes. Lidl and the Granton Morrisons are reached by bus or car. Sainsburys and Waitrose need a car. There's a new Aldi in Portobello which can be reached by the 21 bus. That will also take you to the Leith Lidl at the foot of Leith Walk.
The flat is based in Trinity which is a desirable, residential area on the north side of the city, much closer to the sea than most people realise. It's on a small estate built in the 1980s, which is maintained by the residents. There's a small Turkish cafe at Goldenacre, which does the best coffee locally. Herringbone (they have a website) is about 4 minutes from the flat though you'll probably need to reserve a table if you want an evening meal. Very tasty and reasonable prices. Opposite them is a newly renovated pub called The Inverleith. I've only been in once but it's perfectly pleasant and very dog-friendly. Handbag Exchange is a rather lovely little shop at Goldenacre with pre-loved shoes, bags and clothes, many of which are designer labels. There are 3 mini-marts in the area too. There’s also a nice fishmongers at Goldenacre. If you can support the local shops, please do so. There are 4 take-aways: 2 Chinese, 1 Indian and 1 pizza place.
Supermarkets are easily available. Morrisons is along Ferry Road, Tesco is down at Canonmills, Lidl is down at Granton (there’s an Iceland and B&M in the same complex), where there is another, larger Morrisons. Waitrose is over at Comely Bank and Sainsburys is at the Craighall Shopping Complex. They can all be reached within 15 minutes by car. If you’re on the bus, then choose Morrisons at Ferry Road, Tesco, Lidl or Morrisons at Granton. Morrisons on Ferry Road and Tesco can both be walked to within 15 - 20 minutes. You can get to Tesco via the walkway which is more direct than the main road and more peaceful.
Venture down to Canonmills and you'll find even more cafes and bars. The Orchard is a favourite. Di Giorgio's does very nice coffee. The walkway (former railway line) runs behind the flat and it's perfect for getting some countryside in the city. If you like cemeteries, Warriston Cemetery is well worth a wander and it's easy to get to. The Botanical Gardens are a very short walk away and definitely worth a visit for anyone of any age. There are regular exhibitions throughout the gardens. You could also catch the number 8 bus and head up to Broughton Street, where there are lots of alternative shops, bars and restaurants.
