This is a wonderful Georgian top floor flat centrally situated in London Street. Being on the top floor, there are seventy steps to climb to reach it. It's good exercise! The open views from such a height are a bonus.
There is plenty of space in the flat. There is a large kitchen dining room, a large living room and four bedrooms. There are many unspoilt original features including flagstone flooring in the kitchen, wooden paneling in the livingroom, original fireplaces (not operational) in all bedrooms and livingroom, original decorative plaster work on ceilings and cornicework, original sash and case windows. The flat is simply decorated in white and floors are sanded and varnished throughout. In the bathroom there is an instant electric shower above the bath. There is a height restriction that means most adults would probably find it more comfortable to use the bath rather than the shower. The reason for this is that the cold water storage tank is situated in the space above the shower, resulting in a restriction to the height available. Please bear this point in mind if you very much prefer a shower to a bath.
There is gas central heating throughout. The flat has wireless Internet. Bed linen and towels are provided. The whole flat has tremendous period character and charm.
The flat is situated in a thriving, vibrant upcoming area. Around the corner in Broughton Street there are many very good restaurants, bars and plenty of interesting shops/galleries. There is a very good selection of food shops. There is a Tesco supermarket nearby within walking distance.
It is only ten minutes walk to Princes Street. The Omni Cinema complex is only five minutes walk, and only slightly further is the National Portrait Gallery. Other galleries on Dundas Street and The National Gallery on Princes Street, near the Edinburgh Castle are easily within walking distance. The wonderful Botanic Gardens are very nearby.
Internet and WiFi access available. Bed linen and towels provided.
Programmable Gas central heating.
There is a bus stop just around the corner in Broughton Street. For guests with cars, pay and display parking is available in the nearby streets (no charge overnight or at the weekend). There is also a large underground car park nearby in Leith Street.
