Beautifully appointed converted Victorian Villa. Recently upgraded with high spec furniture and furnishings and recently added decking and seating area. Ideally located for shops, bars & restaurants. Dundee's many amenities are close by with easy access to the University.

A 5 minute stroll to the sea leads to a beautiful award winning beach whilst the golfer is well catered for with many local courses and St.Andrews & Carnoustie a short car journey away. There are many routes for the cyclist and horse riding is available close by. Although in a good central location for all amenities the property is situated in a quiet street with easy parking.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at the Embden house. The location was great, a short walk from the beach and all the shops in Broughty Ferry.
