Kingsburgh Road is located to the west of the City in Murrayfield, one of Edinburgh's most admired residential areas. It is conveniently located for the West End, the City Centre and Haymarket Station. There is excellent local shopping in nearby Roseburn just around the corner, and a large Sainsbury's Supermarket and a Marks & Spencer Food Hall at Craigleith Retail Park, approximately 5 minutes drive away. There are also first-rate private and public sector schools in the area including St George's School for Girls, literally on the doorstep, Mary Erskine and Stewart's Melville.

Directly adjacent to the house is a large, paved sun terrace which is also south facing and has direct access from the kitchen/dining/sitting room. The remainder of the garden is mainly laid to lawn and surrounded by attractive borders.
