Interaction with guests
Treated as my guests, offering what help I reasonably can. Being a TEFL qualified architect, I am particularly interested in foreign visitors and their experiences of my City. Can offer Architectural & Cycle tours by arrangement. Onlooking a private park. Larger park / tennis courts within 2 min walking distance.
Green leafy residential area with quick access to City Centre up Dundas Street which is the 'art gallery' street of Edinburgh.
Howard Place is a Georgian terrace on part of Inverleith Row. There are buses 30m away for 10 minute ride to City Centre, train station and airport connections etc. Walking (uphill!) to Princes St easy 20mins.
Other things to note
50m on opposite side of road is access East Gate to the magical Royal Botanical Gardens. The rear of the house backs onto gardens, playing fields and trees and is very quiet.
Geneva Conventions and above, without smoking please (ok outside in garden but please pick up!)

Someone for whom life is always too short to get everything done, and the wider one's interests, isn't that going to be more the case? Worked as an Architect for many years, now trying to concentrate on teaching, writing and painting and of course cooking for guests. Teaching ranges from TEFL in Edinburgh to ski teaching in Switzerland (where I also paint a lot of Alps). I read any book with an index and make yogurt and sourdough bread whose long timing allows tennis too (nearby courts within a short walking distance). Life in North Edinburgh is pretty good which is why my children still pop by quite often to check that I am looking after our dog/cat assortment.
