Great King Street is the central avenue of Edinburgh's New Town World Heritage Site, dating from the early part of the 19th Century. The private gardens of Drummond Place lie to the eastern end and those of Royal Circus at the western end. It is particularly well suited for access to all the amenities of the city centre with George Street and Princes Street just 1/4 mile away. Waverley Train Station, with regular train services to London, is less than half a mile and there is good road access westwards towards the bypass, Edinburgh airport and Central Scotland Motorway Network. Shopping is just a short walk away is Broughton Street—with one of the best butchers and one of the best fishmongers in town.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am an educator and collector and divide my time between San Francisco, California, United States, Edinburgh, United Kingdom and Palma de Mallorca, Spain. I value beauty in the built environment and a walkable capital city: Edinburgh surpasses my expectations—I have never before lived in a place with so much to offer so close by.

Why the Owner Chose New Town, Edinburgh, UK:
The well-regarded New Town location is close to the shops and restaurants of Broughton Street. The raised Ground Floor contains the principal rooms of the Georgian house under 13 foot ceilings. The past few years have seen a renewed interest in times gone by and I have chosen a 'Downton Abbey' theme to the furnishings and decoration using reclaimed fixtures, antique furniture and period colors.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The sunny eat-in kitchen, large dining hall, sunny studio bedroom and substantial drawing room with its two vast windows make this flat a very comfortable and versatile home. The kitchen, bath and laundry have all new appliances. Two period marble fireplaces (decorative only, not working), working window shutters and an eclectic collection of objects combine to create a unique feeling of serenity.
