I love Princes Street, it has such an eye-catching aesthetic with the exterior colours and architectural style of the houses, creating an almost coastal feel. The house has been beautifully enhanced and caters to modern day family living. The location here is super too, you are only a stroll to a selection of delightful parks and open spaces and the busy, bustling High Street, whenever you want a change of scene you can head to the train station and away to the city or the coast. Just ideal!
