The flat is central yet quiet and peaceful and can be your sanctuary...
Our flat is located in a Georgian house at the eastern end of the historic New Town, that was built in the 1820's by W. H. Playfair. New Town forms part of the UNESCO world heritage site. In a Grade A listed building with classic high ceilings our apartment was the original kitchens to the house. Now a lower ground floor flat, it has been architecturally restored to an exciting standard, highlighting traditional period features while benefiting from modern luxuries.
There are two double bedrooms, a family bathroom with a rainfall shower and bath, a second toilet room, a modern & spacious open plan kitchen and dining area with a door to our private patio garden. The lounge is a comfortable place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. It has large windows street side to a private forecourt. The bedrooms overlook a quiet garden to the rear and a private forecourt to the front with large windows in each. Both bedrooms have new John Lewis king sized beds with top quality linen and towels and wardrobes. There is a baby cot as well.
As my family home for over 45 years, my wife and I have just spent nearly a year lovingly restoring and upgrading it…bringing together the old and the new. Throughout the kitchen, hallways and bathrooms we installed under floor heating beneath the original flagstones… a real mission! You will have all the comforts of home... the apartment is warm and cosy at any time of year.
And bring your own music - there is a nice bluetooth speaker to connect with.
