Semi detached home close to Edinburgh, with surrounding hills for walking home swap

Our home is welcoming 2 bed + study house with a through lounge, dining, kitchen downstairs. We have a new kitchen and utility room downstairs with an shower room and toilet also. There is a small garden and a patio area. There is parking off road. We live in a cul de sac so it is quiet. There is a small balcony off the second bedroom with a view of the Pentland Hills. I am a retired physiotherapist and I worked at the local Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, and my husband a microbiologist who worked for a charity in Edinburgh with lots of travel to Africa.

We lived in Canada for 8 years and became very proud Canadian citizens, therefore we love to return to Vancouver or the island to renew our love for the country.

About the location

There is a delightful walk up the Braid Hills very close by, which overlooks the city of Edinburgh and the sea beyond. We have a new kitchen and Utility room downstairs with an shower room and toilet also.

The bus service into Edinburgh is every 10 minutes and the bus stop is a 6 minute walk from the house, there are also night buses which run until midnight. There is also a night bus which runs overnight every hour.

We can walk into our nearest shopping area (Morningside) which has all major supermarkets (though small versions) and onwards across the meadows into the city which takes approximately 45 mins to an hour.

We are close to enjoy all the delights of Edinburgh but with some peace and quiet to come home to also.

The Edinburgh festival is a wonderful event every August and the largest arts festival in Europe with many act of theatre, comedy, dance and whatever else you can dream of!
