A glamorous two-bedroom period property, newly renovated and excellently located for forays into innermost Edinburgh.
North East Circus Place is at the top of Edinburgh’s Georgian New Town, bordering Stockbridge. The location offers easy access to the crux of the city, specifically Princes Street and the surrounding amenities and attractions, with the marvels of the Old Town just beyond. More relaxed outings can be had in Stockbridge, such as leisurely strolls along the tranquil Water of Leith walkway, but you’ll never be short of places to eat at or things to do whichever way you head.
The apartment itself was part of a townhouse built in 1812, and is in immaculate condition owing to its refurbishment in 2016, with a new oak herringbone parquet floor throughout, a new kitchen and shower room, and complete redecoration in a predominantly cream and slate palette, complemented by many original art pieces. The 15-foot high ceilings confer the sense of ample space, adding extra dimension to a property now impeccably appointed with new and antique furnishings, and equipped with the best of modern creature comforts, such as underfloor heating in the kitchen, guest bedroom and shower room.
The apartment’s living area has abundant seating for entertaining visitors with two sofas and a pair of armchairs.A resplendent chaise longue with antique reading stand invites you to sit by the window, and enjoy a quiet moment with a book. These two floor-to-ceiling windows with original working shutters look out to the neighbouring gated gardens (to which guests have access) in a welcome wealth of greenery. Double doors lead off the large hallway to the kitchen, with the same expansive windows on the far side next to the table seating eight. The room has beautifully minimalist modern appointments, and its chic distinguishing features include industrial down lighting, a tambour metal shuttered cupboard, a bespoke drinks cupboard with integral wine fridge, and a halo pendant light above the table. The kitchen features an antique French buffet with dramatic modern art above, and contains a dishwasher and freezer in addition to the expected amenities; the appliances are from top-shelf brands (such as Miele and Siemens) and brand new. A Sonos speaker is tucked away in the tambour cupboard, with various charging units for mobile devices, as a counterpart to the Sonos soundbar which accompanies the flat screen smart HDTV in the living room.
In the master bedroom, overlooking the gardens, you’ll find a superking bed (which can be divided to form two singles upon request) with a stunning outsize floral headboard and stippled wallpaper behind. The second bedroom is decorated in navy blue seagrass wallpaper, with a king size bed and a brand new linen headboard. This room is tucked away at the back of the flat, off the kitchen. Sit on the window seat, overlooking the famous Circus Lane Mews, and enjoy the fabulous views towards Fettes College. The shower room is muted by comparison, dressed in subtle, soft tones; the luxury fittings continue here with down lighting in a recessed storage alcove within the tiled wet area with rain can shower. There is a vintage Italian mirror and bespoke storage.
North East Circus Place is a magnificent period apartment brought up to date for luxury 21st-century living. It successfully pays homage to its period features, integrating them within a template that is modern and sophisticated. Its prime location between the busy and relaxed polarities of Princes Street and Stockbridge rounds this off to an unbeatable self-catering offering in Edinburgh.
