Ardmillan is a sought after residential area of Edinburgh about two miles south west of the City Centre. The majority of homes for sale in Ardmillan are stone-built tenement properties built around the turn of the century. Many of these properties have now been fully refurbished, their stone cleaned facades having had a dramatic impact on the district's appeal.

There is a wide variety of local shopping and neighbouring Gorgie, Dalry, Merchiston and Polwarth offer alternative facilities and services ranging from small speciality shops to some of Edinburgh's finest bars, bistros and restaurants. Edinburgh City Centre is readily accessible by bus or car.

A good choice of recreational opportunities in the vicinity includes Harrison Park and the Fountain Park leisure complex or for the more energetic person the Union Canal walk-way leads out into open countryside.
