Beautiful, central, and quiet place overlooking a park, walking distance to the Uni

We have a lovely place overlooking the Meadows (more precisely, overlooking Bruntsfield Links - for those in the know), 15 minutes walk to George Square campus of the University of Edinburgh.

The location is trully fantastic (and rare). Literally next door to the trendy Bruntsfield urban village (with lots of coffee shops, restaurants, shops, and the bus stop), and a few minutes walk to Cameo and Filmhouse, and only 20 minutes walk to the Royal Mile.

Our place is an airy open plan live in kitchen overlooking the park (main photo), plus two-three bedrooms (negotiable). About 90-100 m2 (depending on how many bedrooms are negotiated). Two bathrooms (one on-suite). Extremely quiet (dead-end street). The flat occupies an entire floor of a grand 140-year old terraced house, with 4m high ceilings and original features (see last photo), fully renovated a few years ago.

Absolutely no cats (severe cat allegies). No smoking.

We primarily are looking for an exchange with academics in the US and Europe, for a shorter term (a few weeks to two-three months).

Our wish list includes UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara, Pittsburgh, Berlin, Barcelona, New York, Florence, Paris, Marseille, but we may also consider other locations.

Please contact us to check what can work for both sides.
