Old Town, Edinburgh

This property is located in the very heart of the historic Old Town in one of Edinburgh famous closes, splintering off to the north of the Royal Mile. As part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Carrubber’s Close is recorded historically as early as 1513 and this Victorian tenement sits alongside buildings dating back to the 16th and 17th Centuries.

This enviable position is less than half a mile to the historic Edinburgh Castle to the west and the Palace of Holyrood House to the east. It offers all of the benefits of modern city centre living as it is ideally located to take advantage of the main tourist, shopping, financial and legal districts, whilst being in close proximity to Edinburgh University and the Scottish Parliament.

Edinburgh is renowned for its rich history and culture and for its international festivals, including the Fringe and Hogmanay Celebrations. With open air and indoor venues all around, this is an ideal location to take in Edinburgh’s unique atmosphere, with many art galleries and museums located nearby.

Edinburgh is emerging as an international shopping destination with the soon to be completed St James Quarter less than a 10-minute walk away. Over 75 stores will satisfy the shopaholic with a mix of independent boutiques alongside high-street brands and exciting food outlets providing for all tastes. From there, it’s a short walk to Harvey Nichols and George Street where a selection of restaurants, cafés, and bars continue alongside retail spaces. The more traditional style establishments are in abundance in the Grassmarket and Royal Mile, however, wherever you are in Edinburgh you are spoiled for choice with award winning restaurants, bars, delis, and coffee shops.
The green open spaces of Princes Street Gardens, Calton Hill, and Holyrood Park, home to Arthur’s Seat and St Margaret’s Loch, are all in the immediate vicinity.

There is also a wide selection of bus services available nearby giving access to all areas of the capital. The neighbouring Waverley Train Station, St Andrew Square Bus Station, and the tram all provide easy access to destinations further afield.
