Lying on the South side of the city centre, Alfred Place is a quiet and peaceful street in the heart of the Blacket Conservation area, one of Edinburgh’s most desirable areas. The conservation area contains a wealth of architectural heritage with over 90 buildings identified as being of historical or architectural importance. The area was begun in 1825, when stone entrance pillars, gates and gatehouses were erected at the ends of Blacket Place, Blacket Avenue and Mayfield Terrace to ensure privacy, security and seclusion. Properties in the area are charecterised by the use of solid stone construction, slated roofs and classic timber sash and case windows, architectural traditions that S1 Developments wish to echo.

This unique location is close to the Scottish Parliament, as well as the city landmarks of Arthur's Seat, Salisbury Craigs, Blackford Hill and the Royal Observatory. It is also within walking distance of the city centre and convenient for Edinburgh University, particularly the King's Buildings, Edinburgh College of Art, the new Royal Infirmary and The Sick Children's Hospital. In addition The Meadows and the Commonwealth Swimming Pool are all within a short distance. The property lies within easy reach of the city bypass allowing quick access to Edinburgh Airport and the central Scotland motorway network. Alfred Place is also conveniently located for access to some of the city's finest private schools including George Watson's College, George Heriot's School, MerchistonCastle School, Fettes and The Edinburgh Academy.
