Details

A grand two-bedroom Georgian apartment located in the heart of Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town. Elegantly furnished and full of period charm, this property needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Available now!

One of the many highlights of this Georgian property is its grand living room. This room, with its tall ceiling and large windows overlooking stunning architecture of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, is the perfect living space. The room typifies the tall ceilings, original flooring and large sash and case windows (with working shutters) seen throughout the property. An impressive decorative fireplace adorns one wall, while a large bookcase is placed against the other. Two chesterfield sofas, a gold chandelier and Persian rug complete the charming aesthetic of these rooms. A retractable TV is hidden within an Edinburgh press.

The New Town grandeur continues in the main bedroom. This large room is centred around its impressive wooden bed. It has an antique wardrobe with both drawer and hanging space. There is a study with a large built-in desk and extensive shelving that is accessed from this main bedroom that also enjoys views over Queen Street. This would be an idea place to work from home for one or two people.

The kitchen is in a very traditional country style. There are real wooden worktops and units, brass taps over the Belfast sink and a solid flagstone floor. In terms of appliances, there is a range cooker with a five-ring gas hob, an undercounter fridge and a separate undercounter freezer. There is also a washing machine and a ceiling-mounted pulley dryer. The rustic wooden dining table has space for 4-5 people to sit comfortably. The folding chairs can be removed for day-to-day use as there is a large wooden bench. There is an in-built wine rack below the window seat.
The flagstones continue back into the hall, which connects all the rooms in the apartment. Within the hall, there is space for hanging coats, a quirky duo of fold down theatres seat for putting on shoes and a large utility cupboard.

The second bedroom, while smaller than the first, has all the furnishings you would expect, including a wardrobe and chest of drawers. It has a bright feel thanks to its simple white décor and would make a brilliant guest bedroom.

The bathroom has a rolltop freestanding bath as its centrepiece. This has a shower function too and wraparound shower curtain rail. The vintage high-level toilet, wooden wall paneling and patterned tile-effect flooring all help add to this room’s charm. There is a heated towel rail and inbuilt storage next to the wash band basin.

The property is on a semi-pedestrianised street just of St. Andrew Square. It is deceptively tranquil, meaning that while in the property, it is easy to forget that you are right in the heart of Scotland's capital city.

Being so central, the property is perfectly located for amenities. St Andrew Square is home to various popular restaurants, while The St James Quarter (a large shopping centre home to various big-name retailers, a cinema and chain eateries) and George Street (with its designer boutiques, trendy bars and high-end restaurants) are just a couple of minutes’ walk away. The property is also just a 5-minute walk from a gym. For those who want to escape the city for an hour or two, some of the best green areas in the city are nearby. Princes Street Gardens (with its beautiful fountain nestled in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle) is less than 5 minutes away, while the iconic Calton Hill (with its stunning vistas of the city) is just 10 minutes away on foot.

The apartment is also ideal for those who need to (or want to travel). Edinburgh Bus Station is next door, and it is just over a 5-minute walk to Waverley Railway station, meaning trips to Glasgow, London and other major UK cities are easy. Being so central, it also has fantastic bus and tram links to elsewhere in the city, including the airport. There is a tram stop at St Andrew Square, and regular buses from Queen Street, both under a minute’s walk.

The successful tenants will also have the ability to apply for access to the beautiful Queen Street Gardens - one of Edinburgh's most renowned private gardens.
