    Local information

    • 5 Balmoral Place is located in the Stockbridge Colonies, a tranquil haven sandwiched between the parish church and the Royal Botanical Garden. The Water of Leith winds its way through the middle of these two landmarks, curving around the northern and western sides of the Colonies. The Colonies are a testament to the rise of the skilled labour market in Edinburgh during the 19th century and are a key element of Edinburgh's social history.
    • As part of the Cosmopolitan suburb of Stockbridge, the property benefits from a strong sense of community, including a local library and the Glenogle Swim Centre. The village atmosphere thrives through the weekly Farmers market (within 0.3 miles) and the annual Duck Race. It has a wonderful choice of galleries, gift and specialist food shops, bistros, pubs, and restaurants. The Waitrose on Comely Bank Road is in the near vicinity. Additionally, Dean Village is a delightful walk along the Water of Leith, which also winds its way to an abundance of open space in Inverleith Park.
    • There is excellent catchment to a number of local state and public schools, including Stockbridge Primary School and Broughton High School. The bus service regularly runs to the city centre, which is also easily walkable.
