Description from owner

2A Hart Street is an exceptional two-bedroom, two-bathroom garden property that was completely refurbished in 2005 in a modern style that pleasingly and interestingly both contrasts with and yet complements the exterior of this fine Georgian building.

Just an easy 10 minute walk from Edinburgh’s famous Waverley Station, Princes Street, the five-star Balmoral Hotel and designer stores such as Harvey Nichols, Mulberry and Louis Vuitton, the flat could scarcely be more centrally situated. Its immediate environs of Broughton Street are both lively and individualistic. Life is lived here around the clock, but Hart Street itself is a quiet oasis.

The interior walls are mostly white, with a couple of contrasting pastel-coloured panels. The kitchen is state-of-the-art, whilst the living area has an inordinately, comfortable leather sofa and an alluring gas fire. The bedecked and remarkably light garden has a striking water feature.

The property is enhanced by a fine collection of mostly Scottish

The Edinburgh region

Very centrally located at the heart of Edinburgh, within the prestigious EH1 postal district, 2A Hart Street lies at the eastern end of the City's historic Georgian New Town, a World Heritage site.

Situated within the vibrant Broughton village, with its many interesting bars and restaurants and inspiring shops, the apartment is less than 10 minutes walk from the main Waverley Station (which is served by GNER services from London and elsewhere as well as Virgin Trains and Scotrail) and the Rocco Forte-owned five-star Balmoral Hotel just above it.

The flat is just five minutes on foot away from the prestigious John Lewis, Harvey Nichols and Jenners department stores, not to mention the venerable Italian delicatessen and wine store, Valvona & Crolla. The Omni cinema and entertainment complex (including a Virgin Active Health Club) and the Playhouse Theatre are also within a five minute stroll. (Most key Festival and Fringe venues are within fairly easy reach, by the way, and taxis are generally easily hailed on Broughton Street or at the top of nearby Leith Walk, where there is a rank.) There is a new Tesco Metro supermarket in Picardy Place, under 5 mins walk from the apartment. For those wishing to rent a car, Hertz have an office in Picardy Place too.

Edinburgh's main shopping areas of Princes Street and George Street are likewise very easily accessed on foot, as are the National Gallery of Scotland, the Royal Scottish Academy, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and the many lively contemporary commercial galleries of the Dundas Street region, which exhibit the finest works of leading modern Scottish artists.

The always-intriguing narrow streets of the Old Town can be reached in less than 10 minutes via South Bridge, or in less than 15 minutes via a bracing walk up The Mound towards Edinburgh Castle. The tranquillity of the city's famous Royal Botanic Gardens is scarcely further away (downhill) in the opposite direction.

Compared to very many streets in the New Town, the elegantly wide Hart Street is a haven. Located just off Broughton Street, to the south of Forth Street, it is covered with tarmac. (Tarmac is one of Scotland's great inventions so, unlike many roads around here, there is no rude awakening by the sound of rubber tyres – yet another great Scottish invention, by the way – rumbling over the cobbles!)

Hart Street is part of an exquisite Georgian development which was conceived and overseen by Hugh Cairncross in the early 19th Century. Robert Adam (the most celebrated of all British Georgian architects) was in fact Cairncross's mentor.

“Amazing apartment - will be back”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2015

We couldn't be happier that we picked this apartment for our weeks stay in Edinburgh. We have been to Edinburgh a number of times before and picked this as a base for our wedding accommodation. Whilst it worked out a little more expensive for just 2 people that a hotel would have been, we needed the extra space for wedding storage and this was ideal. The rooms are lovely and the living room and kitchen and great and well stocked. The boiler played up once but was easily fixed and the sofa cushions are a bit worn. But that's being super fussy. The service we received on check in and departure was great, no issues at all and so friendly. Thanks for a great stay - will be back next time we are visiting

“Fab central apartment”

Reviewed 29 Jan 2014

2A Hart street is a great apartment, well appointed and centrally located. Very close to lots of the City's sights and very close to Broughton street which has lots of great cafés and bars and restaurants. We had a great visit. Beds and bedding very comfortable. We were able to depart later in day as there was no one following us in, which was really appreciated. All in all a really good stay.

“Ideal location and full of home comforts”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2011

Central location made the cost worthwhile. Tastefully furnished and very comfortable. everything you would need was in the flat - very thoughtfully put together.

“It's like staying in your extended families special apartment. . .”

Reviewed 20 Jun 2011

Lovely, lovely apartment! All the amenities to feel like home. Loved the garden in the rear of the apartment, which is highly unusual in this city. The apartment is in the basement, but does not feel like a basement as the rear of the apartment has doors and windows to the lovely garden. The owner and caretaker were very easy to work with. We always took a taxi to start the day, as most of our tourist activities were uphill, however we walked back each day no matter how many steps we had taken. The location was very good with a wine store & pub less than a block away. The grocery store was a hike tho. Only negative is the main bathroom had a tiny sink, and a large tub (no shower) so four of us had to trade off using the shower in the master. Really, it is all updated and beautiful. All of us would definitely stay there again.

Since this review was posted, an electric shower has been installed in the bathroom. Also, a new Tesco Metro supermarket has opened just 5 minutes' walk from the apartment.
