About the Property
Two Bedroom, Two Bathroom, Master On-suite, Immpecable Decor
Stunning city centre apartment with amazing views of Edinburgh Castle in the heart of Edinburgh. New on the market, this is an amazing opportunity to be at the heart of the action for both the largest arts festival in the world, The Edinburgh International Festival and Edinburgh's Christmas & Hogmannay celebrations. Just minutes walk from the main venues and cultural/historical attractions, German markets, ice rink and big wheel etc for the festive hols, and surrounded by the best shopping, bars and restaurants, this is all about location, location, location! Pleasant walks can be enjoyed nearby along the Water of Leith walkway, Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens while there is convenient road access to the west leading to the city bypass, Edinburgh International Airport and central Scotland’s motorway network. Waverley Train Station is also within a short walk.
The apartment opens into a square reception hall providing access to all rooms. To the front of the flat and with a southerly aspect from its twin sash and case windows is a magnificent drawing room featuring a gas fire with iron grate and pretty timber mantle, dado panelling and delicate plaster work. A glazed door provides secondary access from the drawing room into a striking breakfasting kitchen fitted with an attractive range of painted timber units topped with thick granite surfaces and incorporating a full range of integrated Baumatic appliances including a recessed range cooker set within a bespoke pediment, oven/grill, and microwave as well as a AEG washing machine and full height fridge/freezer. The kitchen is well equipped to a high standard with everything you might need to make your visit more like home.
The bedrooms comprise a generously proportioned master bedroom with dual aspect views towards the castle and features secondary double glazing while also benefitting from a luxurious en suite shower room. The second double bedroom has full working shutters and is served by an equally well fitted bathroom off the hall. There is currenly also a double bed in the second bedroom, but for a rental of one week or more than this can be switched to two singles. There is also the option of a pull-out bed for a fifth guest or over night visitor (rates vary depending on total groups size and time of year). The apartment is located on the second floor of the building - one of the first tenements to go up in The Georgian 'New Town' designed by the architect of The New Town, James Craig in approx 1790.
We have two luxury apartments in this unprecedented central location. For those who've larger parties or would like a choice of decor. "The Walter Scott Suite" sits above this one on the 2nd floor and has a sumptuous, mature but contemporary decor. Sharing the same elevation with equally stunning castle views.

The street atmosphere in December becomes very festive, with xmas street decorations and winter fiestas, markets and sometimes organized street parties.
Year Purchased: 2012
About: I've owned another property in this building for more than ten years, both as my home and as a rental (as detailed above). When the opportunity came up to purchase the apartment directly below mine, in November 2012, the family were mobilised. It provides future clients with the option of renting both together for larger groups, and is also a different lay-out to my original apartment on a lower level, which in the absence of an elevator will provide another option to our visitors. I worked as an actor for many years and as a radio broadcaster on the BBC, presenting arts programmes. I'm also very interested in cultural tourism projects and in 1996 created The infamous 'Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour' - an award winning tour performed by professional actors. It runs throughout the year and Rick Steves, presenter of travel programmes USA wide, is quoted as saying in a recent review, 'for an entertaining insight into the greats of Scottish literature, served up with new friends, good beer, and lots of laughs, The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour is my vote for the best way to spend an Edinburgh Evening!' so can't be bad!! Let me know if your interested in going on the tour at check-in and I can reserve you a slot for a special discounted rate.
