Edinburgh and the New Town (1750-1850)
In the early 1700s, overcrowding in the ancient ‘old town’ and advances in technology led to the first planned city in the world. The New Town was the result, sited to the north of the Royal Mile. It was the world’s first planned development, begun in approximately 1750 and continued for 100 years.
Buildings facades are limestone, and all streets were originally cobbled. Strong interest in preservation of these historic building led to the entire district being designated as ‘listed buildings’, and under strict guidelines as to paint colors for doors and windows, and interior modifications to homes and offices.
This flat is located 3 blocks (an easy 9 minute walk) from Princes Street. It is also sited close to the Stockbridge shopping area, with all amenities, including hairdressers. Many restaurants and ‘take out/takeaways’ are close by, and two major bus lines are a short street away in two directions.
