Charming family home, a converted barn, with 4-5 bedrooms set in half an acre of land with easy access to the centre of town (15 mins) and to the immediate countryside. It has a well-fitted kitchen and two living-rooms.
The house is situated in the former village of Colinton, now a suburb of the City of Edinburgh. It is a friendly, quiet and secure community and very well situated for access to the centre of town. The house is up a small private drive which is gated for added security, with 5 immediate neighbours in owner-occupied houses who are all very friendly and helpful. Edinburgh is widely considered as one of, if not the most beautiful city in the United Kingdom and is buzzing with activity throughout the month of August with the International Festival (theatre, music, exhibitions etc) and the so-called Fringe Festival with literally hundreds of show on to meet all tastes. From Edinburgh, it is an easy drive up to the Highlands within half an hour, or to the beautiful west coast of Scotland (a bit like Oregon) a bit further at 1.5 hrs.
