Bright and attractive second-floor apartment, centrally located in Edinburgh's New Town, with two bedrooms and abundant entertainment space.
This bright and attractive second-floor apartment is situated between the bustle of the New Town’s busiest streets (Queen Street, George Street, and Princes Street) and nearby Stockbridge, so is within easy walking distance of each. Darnaway Street is just along from Heriot Row, where you can find the former residence of Robert Louis Stevenson. Two of the three doors on the second floor lead on to the property.
Directly opposite the entrance is a storage closet, containing an ironing board and clothes horse. Round the corner is the expansive sitting-cum-dining room with a flatscreen TV, Virgin Media Box, Wi-Fi hub, and a speaker dock for Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod). Furnishings include a sofa with footrest, two armchairs, a further six chairs, a settee, a bureau, five drinks stands, and a dining table which seats six, altogether making it a perfect spot to relax and entertain guests. Three windows look over the cobbled street and their large dimensions dramatically brighten the room, augmenting the crisp and clean decor.
The kitchen range extends from the sitting-cum-dining room, and comes equipped with all the essentials (hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, and dishwasher) as well as an abundance of crockery. The washing machine is also located here. A twin room with a window out on to neighbouring gardens is first off the corridor from the kitchen, after which comes the bathroom with a heated towel rail and two showerheads (one fixed into the wall). The master bedroom has a King-size bed and benefits from two windows, which, as with the twin room, face away from the street, ensuring quiet and peaceful sleep. It has a radio and built-in storage cupboard beside the bed, as well as a dressing table and floor-to-ceiling integrated wardrobes with mirrors on the farthermost wall. The second door on to the landing is adjacent this room.
This apartment provides a quiet retreat to kick back in after enjoying Edinburgh’s most famous retail and catering streets, while also allowing easy outings into the more relaxed Stockbridge.
