Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

PLEASE NOTE We are looking for an exchange from October 2019 onwards. Our apartment is not normally available in July or August

Our apartment is a bright, garden level one bedroom apartment in an historic building (1892) in cosmopolitan Stockbridge. Quiet street overlooking the river in an area with lots of cafes/restaurants/shops/galleries yet within a 15 minute walk of the centre of the city. The apartment has a double bedroom looking over the patio and shared garden (you have access to both) , a shower room and separate toilet, and a large sitting/dining/kitchen. There is also a sofa bed in the sitting area which sleeps one but this would be a bit cramped for a long stay. As there are some steps down to enter the apartment it isn't suitable for those with mobility problems. The Botanical Gardens, Inverleith Park and local swimming pool are all within walking distance. Happy to lend golf clubs (and to advise on courses). Paid street parking, but free parking within 20 minutes' walk.

French and Basic Japanese spoken

Our apartment is also available for rent, should a swap not be suitable. There is a discount for members of Homelink. Please contact us for further details

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

Stockbridge is a cosmopolitan area of Edinburgh, within walking distance of the city centre but with its own distinct character. There are numerous pubs, bars, restaurants and independent shops. St Stephen Street is well known for its vintage shops as well as art shops, a wonderful bookshop, and small but very good jewellery shop. There are a number of specialist cheese shops, plus one of the best fish shops in the cityand every Sunday there is a fantastic market just 5 minutes' walk from the apartment. Despite all of this, Stockbridge is relatively quiet and Dean Terrace is particularly peaceful, with houses on one side and the Water of Leith river on the other.. The Botanical Gardens are nearby as is Inverleith Park. All in all,Stockbridge is peaceful haven in the city.
