The Albany Street Residence benefits from a fabulous city centre location on a residential Georgian street, that perfectly demonstrates the New Town grand design. The location enjoys all the perks of city centre living, and you’ll be spoiled with a great selection of independent shops, cafes and restaurants; all just a few minutes’ stroll from your doorstep in Broughton Street - perfect for lazy Sunday brunch or a spot of people watching.
