Property Description


This is a lovingly restored and recently renovated centrally-located Georgian New Town flat.
Renting a stylish two-bedroom flat for professional people.

The décor throughout is thoughtfully in keeping with the Georgian character of the building.

Spectacular living room decorated in warm antique red. Original Georgian cornice and central chandelier.
Huge feature fireplace with mantle to ceiling mirror.
Log-gas stove for extra warmth and atmosphere if needed.
Massive bookcases line two walls in one corner.
Two large Georgian windows with working shutters. Living room has exemplary Georgian up-to-dado wood lining. This has been painstakingly taken back to original wood and varnished.

All floors have been sanded, sealed and varnished.

Kitchen off-living room. Own huge window with shutters. Slate floor with under-floor heating. Wooden work-top and Belfast sink. Gas hob/electric oven. Washing machine. Clothes pulley has been fitted for drying clothes throughout the year.

The flat has a spacious double master bedroom with period fireplace, Georgian wood panelling, feature cornice, stand alone bath in the corner on a slate slab and California kingsize bed. This bedroom is to the back of the building – super quiet for sleeping. Charming Timrous Beastie’s thistle wallpaper adorns the chimney-breast with matching lace curtains at the double window. Sofa. This sash & case double-glazed window is south facing so there’s lots of sunlight keeping the room bright and cheery right through the winter.

Separate stylish WC with under-floor heating.

Second double bedroom is also to the back of the building (very quiet for sleep).
Two Edinburgh press-style wardrobe/cupboards. Cosy carpet.

Double glazing throughout in original sash and case style.
EPC Rating C76 (well above national average of D61).
Basement for bikes.

Beautiful old Georgian shared common stair with original flagstones has been recently completely re-plastered and painted to a high standard.

This flat is fortunate to have highly sought-after access to the exclusive private Queen Street East Gardens for a small annual subscription fee. This is a delightful bit of paradise in the centre of the city. Calton Hill is the back garden 5 mins away for inner-city(!) walks/jogs and beautiful panoramic views.

Location :
This flat is ridiculously central with local amenities to die for.
The brand new St James Quarter Leisure and Shopping Centre is to the back with fabulous eateries, shops, high-end restaurants, bowling alley, Everyman cinema etc.

Exclusive Multrees Walk is the closest shopping street with Harvey Nicks and Louis Vuitton not even a couple of minutes away!

Broughton St is one of the first streets you come to when you leave the flat. Restaurants, bars, clubs are all walking distance in any direction. The Omni Centre is 2 mins walk from the front door – for gym & cinema etc. Playhouse Theatre is 3 mins walk.

St Andrew’s Square, George St and Princes St are 5mins walk.
The tram network has a stop about 100m from the front door, this goes through the centre of town and out west to the Gyle (perfect for the business sector) and finally into the airport. The other direction takes you through Leith all the way out to Newhaven.
Waverley train station is 5mins walk.

The last time we rented this flat there was an unbelievable amount of interest – you’ll need to be quick off the mark!

Viewing immediately.
