Chalmers Crescent is a quiet residential street situated at the heart of The Grange, one of the most sought-after areas of Edinburgh, less than two miles south of the city centre.
The popularity of the area is accounted for not only by its pleasant, quiet and leafy streets, but also by its convenient location for access to schools, local amenities and road links both in and out of town. Nearby Bruntsfield, Morningside and Newington provide a wealth of charming local shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, along with a cinema, theatre and a choice of supermarkets.
The open spaces of the Meadows, Bruntsfield Links, Blackford Hill and the Hermitage are all close by, as is Warrender Swimming Pool and gym.
The property is situated within the catchment for Sciennes Primary and James Gillespie's High School and there are a number of independent schools on the south side of the city, including George Watson's, George Heriot's and Merchiston Castle School. The Edinburgh Academy and Fettes College are also easily accessible.
