Portobello is a charming and distinctive part of Edinburgh with a busy, traditional high street offering fishmongers, delicatessen, fine wine shop, award winning butcher plus various restaurants and takeaways - everything you need for a self-catering holiday! There is a wide variety of interesting architecture within the conservation area and a stroll through the local streets never fails to reveal something of interest.

The sandy beach, which is approximately 2 minutes walk from the house, boasts beautiful coastal views, good pub/restaurants and cafes, boats and canoes for hire, restored Victorian swimming pool with Turkish baths and gym, soft play area, outdoor playgrounds plus additional seasonal art installations and attractions. Portobello is very well connected to Edinburgh city centre with several regular bus routes operating day and night on the 3 mile journey between the two locations and a taxi ride is typically less than �10.

This traditional seaside resort, with a vibrant community spirit, is a fantastic location offering peace and calm from which to explore the city of Edinburgh as well as the surrounding countryside and attractions.

This is a wonderful, spacious, traditional seaside townhouse, built at a time when wealthy Edinburgh families also bought a house by the sea in order to cool off on those hot summer days.

Laid out over 3 floors, plus a mezzanine level, the wide staircases are a feature, particularly the winding staircase between the first and second floors. The drawing room is positioned on the first floor, as was the norm for the time, with 3 large windows that let the light stream in. From the top floor there are views to Arthur's Seat from the front and across the Firth of Forth to Fife at the rear.

The house has undergone an extensive renovation to a very high standard and boasts 4 bedrooms, drawing room, dining room, new fitted kitchen, family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, a WC on each floor, full gas central heating, high pressure hot water system, new fitted kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite, fresh decoration throughout, tuned Yamaha piano, free WiFi, cable TV, video and DVD, iron and ironing board, hairdryers, linen and towels. Everything you need in a self-catering house near Edinburgh!
