Beautiful, light-filled three bedroom Victorian tenement flat walking distance to university

Our home is a light-filled, top-floor flat with wonderful views and characterful features. It is on a very quiet street in Marchmont, which is a 20 minute walk to the city centre and a 5-7 minute walk to the University of Edinburgh's main campus. There are many great pubs, cafes and restaurants within walking distance. The flat is recently renovated, fully furnished with modern appliances and high speed internet. The spacious eat-in kitchen has an extra utility room. The flat has one bathroom with underfloor heating and towel heater. There are three bedrooms, all with wardrobe/drawer storage -- the largest bedroom has a 'triple-sleeper' bunkbed with a double bed on bottom and single bed on top; bedroom two has a double bed; bedroom three is the smallest bedroom with a sofa-bed (pulls out to a full-size double), a built-in bookshelf and desk, and can be used alternately as a study/home office. There is a communal garden at the back, and the green delights of The Meadows and Brunstfield Links are a stone's throw away. Families with children will find the flat especially convenient and comfortable. No smoking allowed at all on the premises.
