This beautiful ‘drawing room’ apartment is on the 1st floor of a large traditional Edinburgh Victorian house full of period features and ideally located just over a mile from the city centre.

Fully refurbished in July 2018 to a high modern standard with brand new kitchen, bathroom etc this apartment has an outlook over gardens in a peaceful side street off the main road to Edinburgh’s city centre.

Royal Mile is a 1.5 miles away. Holyrood Park 0.8 miles.
City centre 1.6 miles

The space
The drawing room flat is within a traditional Edinburgh house over three floors, with sweeping stair cases, beautiful high ceilings and elaborate cornice features of the Victorian era.

The flat has been renovated sympathetically to highlight rather than erase the Victorian features. A traditional marble fireplace with inlaid tiles from the 1900s still stands as a central focal point.

Original wooden flooring throughout and high 3.3m ceilings, coupled with the light from the bay window spanning the width of the living area - give a light an airy feeling to the living space.

Perfect after a busy day exploring Edinburgh in relaxing surroundings.

In my spare time I love a bit of mountain biking and I’m a beekeeper too.
