Forres Street, located in the Moray Feu, within Edinburgh's World Heritage Site is positioned on the south side of the prestigious Moray Place, perhaps Edinburgh's most sought after New Town address.

The property's perfect situation is within easy walking distance of the city centre and the financial district. The fashionable shops of George Street and the many coffee shops, restaurants, bars and independent shops of Stockbridge are effectively on its doorstep. Residents can apply for access to the superb Moray Place and Ainslie Place Private Gardens on payment of a modest annual fee.The open spaces of the Royal Botanical Gardens, Inverleith Park and the terraced gardens on the banks of the Water of Leith are close by. The New Town Nursery is situated on Forres Street while there are a number of excellent schools nearby including the Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Erskine Stuart's Melville Schools and St George's School for Girls.
