This fantastic top floor self-catering apartment is situated in a B-listed tenement within Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its neo-classical and Georgian architecture dating from the 18th and 19th centuries. The property is within easy walking distance of the tram line in St Andrew Square or the main Edinburgh Waverley train station. It is within a three-minute walk of the luxury retailers of Multrees Walk and in close proximity to the area’s two most famous streets, George Street and Princes Street. The Scottish National Portrait Gallery is off the top of the street, with the Playhouse theatre and Omni leisure centre around the following corner.
Access to the apartment is via an internal flight of stairs to the top floor. This newly decorated accommodation has a spaciousness that immediately impresses upon entering the hallway, with a skylight in the main hall and decorative arches.
The main bathroom is located just off the hallway. This bathroom is tiled with modern slate and has electric underfloor heating, an anti-misting mirror and shower over the bath. Leading off the hall on this side of the flat is a twin room which can double as a study and a double bedroom. Across the hall are a single bedroom and the master suite, which has a super king bed and a beautiful bay window offering extensive views out over Dublin Meuse. The immaculate ensuite shower room also features underfloor heating and an anti-misting mirror.
The large sunny living/dining room has Mersey Beat Beatles posters (1964) adorning each wall, conferring a 60’s vibe. The property’s dining table seating six resides beside the bay windows commanding delightful views over Dublin Meuse and out to the Firth of Forth, while the main entertainment space is equipped with a 22-inch Full HD smart TV with Netflix and Googlebox.
Also accessible from the hall is the property’s kitchen boasting a breakfast bar with high stool seating for four and a large double oven with six-gas hob range cooker, a dishwasher, microwave, fridge, generous countertop, corner pull out shelving units and all essential cutlery, crockery, cookware and drinkware. There is a pulley for clothes drying, while on the opposite side of the hall you’ll find a washing machine and clothes horse in the utility closet. All three rooms on the west side of the property have bay windows with working shutters; the influx of light continues through the skylights in the hall, bathroom and kitchen, instilling an uplifting atmosphere.
Each bathroom contains a hairdryer and towels, linen, and Wi-Fi are included in the rental. On-street car parking is free every weekday from 5.30pm to 8.30am and at weekends. A car, however, is definitely not essential to stay here as most places are within easy walking distance.
This stylish apartment is imbued with quirky style and will serve as a very comfortable base for your stay in central Edinburgh.
