A tranquil haven in the centre of Edinburgh’s New Town, just minutes walk from all major attractions, The Georgian Apartment would suit a couple looking for that perfect retreat to enjoy Scotland's historic capital.
The Georgian Apartment offers luxury self-catering holiday accommodation for two in a spacious Edinburgh apartment. It is a wonderful Georgian home built in 1823, nestling in the very heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enter from the historic cobbled India Street through its private main door entrance and step back in time 200 years. From the centuries old flag stone hallway with wood panelled walls to the ornate ceiling cornicing, pitch pine floor and original sash windows of the drawing room it will be easy to forget you are in the 21st century.
The home also has all you will need to enjoy a magnificent modern city break with superfast broadband, free unlimited WiFi, smart TV and all modern kitchen appliances. It has been freshly furnished for 2022 with a sophisticated mix of both vintage and contemporary Scottish styles.
The Georgian Apartment would suit a couple looking for either a cultural short city-break in Edinburgh or perhaps a longer stay to allow enjoyment of some of this region’s world-famous attractions such as the Edinburgh Festival, many of the region's famous golf courses or even the traditional festivities around the Edinburgh Christmas market.
It is possible to enjoy everything that our exciting capital has to offer within walking distance of the apartment yet return to the comfort of your own home in the tranquil residential neighbourhood of India Street.
The property consists of one double bedroom with en suite, a large drawing room fronting onto India Street, a large kitchen/dining room and another bathroom with shower off the hallway. There are 3 stone steps leading from the pavement to the private front door with a final step to enter the apartment itself.
The spectacular grand entrance hall features the original flagstone flooring and has wood panelled walls, it is furnished traditionally and has plenty of space to sit down, remove your shoes and put down those shopping bags!
The very large drawing room is packed with original features including the ornate plaster ceiling, sash windows with shutters and beautiful pitch pine floorboards. The décor is again very traditional yet comfortable with two stunning Chesterfield sofas, reclaimed elm wood furniture and a real effect gas stove which provides both an excellent source of warmth and a comforting centrepiece. Afternoon and evening sun floods the room bringing out the wonderful warm tones of all the natural wood.
The kitchen/dining room has a much more contemporary feel and features a state-of-the-art Porcelanosa kitchen including two drawer dishwashers, oven, ceramic hobs, fridge and microwave oven. A smart TV is cunningly disguised in a dresser and the sofa and dining table and chairs make this an ideal room for cooking and eating meals when not out enjoying the restaurants. Morning light through the large window makes this the perfect spot for breakfast.
The bedroom has a brand-new king-size bed with pocket sprung mattress. There is a built-in wardrobe and modern en-suite bathroom with a bath/shower unit and electrically operated blind for privacy. The bathroom has underfloor heating for the cooler months. Noise is never a problem in quiet India Street but the bedroom faces out the back of the property where there is no traffic or pavement, it also benefits from the beauty of the morning light.
There is a small store room opposite the kitchen which houses a freezer, the central heating and hot water controls and any cleaning products you may require.
An additional top of the range bathroom with shower lies off the hallway opposite the drawing room. This room also benefits from underfloor heating and houses a washing machine inside a cleverly concealed utility room.
The Georgian Apartment has key access to the private India Street Gardens, an ideal place to soak up some sun or have a picnic outdoors.
