Located in one of the most desirable areas of Edinburgh, 5B/3 Greenhill Park is a property that will not be on the market for very long.
5B/3 Greenhill Park lies just off bustling Morningside Road. The urban area lies in the south-west of Edinburgh, around 2-3 miles from the city centre and has formerly homed some of Scotland’s most famous writes, including the likes of J.K Rowling.
Although only a short journey from the city centre, Morningside has the feel of a small neighbourhood and is the perfect property location for families wanting the blend of city life and a small, quiet town.
And that’s precisely what we get with this months featured property: Greenhill Park itself is a quiet street lined with period villas and is just a stone’s throw away from the slightly busier neighbourhood, offering everything you could ever need.
