Polwarth is an exclusively residential district to the southwest of the city centre with near neighbours at Merchiston and Bruntsfield. In style and appeal, it is remarkably similar to Morningside, Marchmont and Bruntsfield and comprises mainly of substantial Edinburgh tenement properties dating back to before the turn of the twentieth century. Local shopping is as convenient as it is extensive. The shopping centre at Polwarth provides a great deal more than normal daily requirements. The centre has a butcher, chemist, delicatessen, grocer, newsagent and off-licence to mention only a few. There is also a continental take away, and the area is served very well by the local Post Office, just around the corner. It is, therefore, an exceptionally well-served area but should more extensive facilities be required, they can be readily enjoyed nearby in Bruntsfield or at Tollcross or, for that matter, the city centre itself. From here, the trip to Princes Street using one of the many and frequent bus services that pass through the area take as little as ten to fifteen minutes via Tollcross and Lothian Road. Lothian Road is where Edinburgh’s formal entertainment facilities tend to be very highly concentrated. Here there are theatres and cinemas, all manner of restaurants and bars, indoor sports facilities and disco theques, all within walking distance. Fountain Park cinema complex with its various bars and restaurants are situated a few minutes walking distance from the property. For those who prefer open air recreational facilities, Harrison Park is nearby while Bruntsfield Links and the Meadows can be reached on foot. The nearby Union Canal walkway leads through the city and deep into the open countryside. From every point of view, this is an ideal residential district, well served locally and within the easiest possible reach of the City Centre and all that it can provide.
