The financial centre, Waverley and Haymarket railway stations and tram connecting to Edinburgh Airport are all within easy reach.
Leslie Place is an immaculately presented raised ground floor flat in the sought after Stockbridge. Occupying the preferred ground floor, the property has generous proportions and is in excellent decorative order throughout. The renovations have been completed with sensitivity towards the many fine period features. Worth mentioning are the original bell board and servant's bells, with handle pulls either side of the fireplace and at the front door.
