Condo/Apartment
This attractive second-floor apartment was built around 1850, and has been recently redecorated in a fresh and bright palette. The flat combines traditional furnishings with modern conveniences, and is accessed via a flight of stairs (not a lift). The property is situated in a great location in the New Town, close to the home of Robert Louis Stevenson, as well as Scotland Street, a recurring feature in Alexander McCall Smith’s novels. There are ample shops and boutiques on nearby Broughton Street and great restaurants and cafes in the area. The first room off the entrance is the bathroom, which has a heated towel rail and a shower over the bath. Farther along is the sitting room, which has a gas stove, a corner sofa, three chairs, and an armchair. The two shuttered windows on the far side...This attractive second-floor apartment was built around 1850, and has been recently redecorated in a fresh and bright palette.

Farther along is the sitting room, which has a gas stove, a corner sofa, three chairs, and an armchair. The two shuttered windows on the far side of the room look out over Nelson Street. Adjoining the sitting room and hallway is the kitchen, equipped with a hob and oven, washer-dryer, dishwasher, microwave, and crockery. It also boasts pull-out storage and a breakfast bar with seating for three. A storage closet, containing an ironing board and clothes horse, is situated opposite the spacious twin room, which has a wardrobe and two chests of drawers. Both the twin room and the adjacent master bedroom are on the quieter side of the house, overlooking Northumberland Street South East Lane, and so offer a good night’s sleep. The master bedroom also has an ensuite shower room with a heated towel rail and integrated storage behind the mirror above the sink. Both bedrooms have zip-together beds which can be made up as two singles or a king in each room; please message us to state your preference after booking. Free on-street parking is available from Friday evenings to Monday mornings, with the nearest NCP car park 10 minutes’ walk away. A car isn’t essential to stay here as most places are within easy walking distance and the local bus service is excellent if you wish to go farther afield.More
