Self catering apartment on two floors. This imaginatively converted 19th century coach house has a hall, kitchen and shower room on the ground floor with stairs up to a large, bright living space with dining area and south facing double bedroom.
This 19th Century Coach House has been creatively converted into a spacious 1 Bedroom Apartment on two floors with excellent views of Arthur's Seat. Situated in Newington, it is superbly located for local amenities and is only 1 mile from Edinburgh's Historic High Street and vibrant city centre.
This compact and practical kitchen is great to use. The kitchen includes 4 ring gas cooker with oven and grill, microwave, washing machine, fridge (with Ice-box), kettle and toaster. Crockery, cutlery and glassware for 4.
Small hall with access to kitchen, shower room and stairs to first floor. The floor throughout is reclaimed maple from an old school gym hall.
We love the shower room, it features a large, tiled shower space with a choice between overhead or wall mounted shower heads. The sink is original to the property and dates from the 60s.
The staircase is copied from a 19th Century bothy near Applecross which I measured up while on holiday.
The living space has great light and views to Arthur's seat. We kept the original wooden tie beams and hayloft door giving the space it's character. We have an eclectic mix of 20th Century furniture; an elm Ercol table seats four, a 1960s replica Wassily chair, a modern sofa with a G-plan Astro coffee table from the 1970s.
The whole property benefits from Gas Central heating with instant hot water.
Holyrood Park is only a 5 minute walk and the Olympic sized Commonwealth pool is 1minute from the front door. Prestonfield Golf course is less than half a mile away and is open to visitors. The Parliament building is at the end of a pleasant 23 minute walk through Holyrood Park.
There are excellent shops, bars, cafes and restaurants nearby, as well as art/music/theatre venues such as Summerhall, The Queen's Hall, The Festival Theatre and the Pleasance

As we are your neighbours we would appreciate it if you could try to keep noise to a minimum, as we will endeavour to do the same.
It will be useful to know when you expect to arrive as we are likely to arrange our day around it. However, we can be flexible, so just keep in touch.
No more than two people can stay in the apartment.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions prior to booking.
After traveling a lot ourselves we've come to appreciate interesting spaces - with light and character, functionality and a bit of homely comfort. We're a Scottish couple with experience in architecture, building, art and design. We converted this coach house ourselves as our home and loved living in it for many years.
As our family expanded so did we - building a house next door which we now live in with our two children. As we share a lobby we will be here to meet you and answer any questions you may have. We hope you enjoy the coach house as much as we have.
