Sadly the age of the property and the first-floor location mean that access will be unsuitable for some. These factors are regrettable, but are outside the scope of any adaption we could do.

Marchmont is a vibrant & free-spirited neighbourhood which is very at ease with itself, being smart but unpretentious - and the young-at-heart will feel instantly comfortable.
The flat is very dear to us having been owned for 20 years, and having been home. This, and the good relationship we have with our excellent friendly neighbours, means it's never going to be a party pad so it won't be for everyone. But respect that view and you'll find an endearing home-from-home to which we feel sure you'll want to return.
Sadly at this time we can't accept pets, and do note that the apartment is strictly non-smoking.
