Nestled on the ground floor of a traditional Edinburgh terraced tenemental style stone building, overlooking the garden at the rear from the living room and bedroom, this property offers a perfect location to roam the city of Edinburgh and beyond from.

It gets its name from the view from the bedroom, looking out onto the garden, and a squint chimney.

Situated one mile (1.6km) from the national train station and the beginning of the tram line (...ending at the airport), and just round the corner from the airport bus stop, as well as served by plentiful regular buses - travelling by public transport is done with ease. It also has free on-street parking.

Surrounded by traditional stone tenement buildings and quaint mews lanes, and in walking distance from Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Palace, the controversial Scottish Parliament building, and the bottom of the cobbled Royal Mile (with the castle at the top) - Edinburgh beauty is only steps away.

A french patisserie, quality wine merchant, 2 large supermarkets (both delivering to the property), exceptionally good Indian and Thai takeaways, and a number of independent restaurants, cafes and bars satisfy the palate locally.

The Playhouse theater, large Omni cinema, and Ingelby Art Gallery are all in walking distance.

The property itself has recently been renovated, and finished to a high standard, with...

- beautiful wooden floors and large windows

- a large double bedroom with double bed

- open plan kitchen, hall & livingroom

- kitchen has cooking utensils, cooker, washing machine, fridge/freezer and quality crockery & glassware

- bathroom has a three-piece suite and electric shower above bath

- living room with dining recess offers a place to put up your feet and relax

- newly installed double glazing & gas central heating keep it toasty warm (with the windows opening wide over the garden

on a sunny day)
