Blinkbonny House is a beautiful detached bungalow built in the 1930's on what was formerly an apple orchard, part of the old Blinkbonnie Estate, (later changed to Blinkbonny) situated on the west side of Edinburgh in one of the finest districts of the city.
Our house sits on an elevated position overlooking a tree-lined park to the rear of the property. The rooms to the rear of the house have a spectacular outlook over the surrounding area.
Blinkbonny House is in an excellent location for easy access into the city centre. It is only a 5 minute bus ride to Princes Street or a pleasant 20 minute walk past some of Edinburgh’s splendid Victorian dwellings and tree lined streets.
Within easy walking distance the shops and gardens of Princes Street, Edinburgh Castle, the National Gallery of Modern Art, Royal Botanical Gardens, Murrayfield Rugby Stadium and Stockbridge, a conservation area renowned for its antique shops and excellent restaurants.
Also only a few minutes walk to the Craigleith Shopping Centre where you will find a large supermarket with restaurant, Chemist’s, and many more shops.
