The apartment is in the heart of Stockbridge, just to the North of the City's central New Town - and there is plenty to see and do right on your doorstep.

It also has its own annual Stockbridge Festival for 9 days at the end of June and the famous charity duck race where 1000 ducks are launched into the Water of Leith, which winds it's way through the area.
It is an area that has traditionally attracted creative professionals. It houses the coveted ' Stockbridge Colonies', 11 parallel streets built to provide housing for the artisan class working on Edinburgh's flamboyant New Town Mansions. As such, whilst lesser in scale the buildings of Stockbridge were generously detailed by this highly skilled community of craftsmen with ornate cornicing, Georgian sash windows and stunning quality architectural features.
There are many fabulous cafes, restaurants and bars in the area, and plenty of takeaways for business travellers- a choice for every taste.
Inverleith Park, The Botanical Gardens and the Water of Leith are all within 5 minutes offering stunning backdrops for a stroll, jog or picnic.
The flat is just off St Stephen Street, a curving Georgian street of flats with the basements and ground floors accommodating a series of antique shops, bars and offices. St Stephens Place is a small spur on its north side, it once lead to the old Stockbridge Market, of which the original entrance stone archway still stands which the flat overlooks.
At the end of St Stephens Street, the St Stephens Street Church is a prominent Edinburgh Landmark, designed by Architect William Playfair. From here it is only about a 10 minutes walk directly up Howe Street to George Street, Princes Street and the main attractions of the city.
