Quiet and spacious New Town apartment in the heart of the city. A wonderful home for a relaxing holiday break.
This stylish apartment forms the ground and lower ground floors of a magnificent Georgian “A” listed building, circa 1800, situated in Edinburgh’s renowned New Town. Built in stages over a period of some 85 years, between 1765 and 1850, the New Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and retains much of the original Neo Classical and Georgian period architecture.
The property is approached via stone steps to an immaculate entrance hall with flagstone flooring, pillars and ornate cornicing.
Once in the flat, the welcoming and spacious reception hall with polished flagstones, spiral staircase and cornicing provides access to all rooms on the ground floor.
Royal Crescent is conveniently situated in the east of the Georgian New Town. A cosmopolitan range of shops, restaurants, galleries and bars is close at hand, together with Harvey Nichols, John Lewis, Jenners and the designer shops of Multrees Walk and George Street. The Playhouse Theatre and the Omni cinema are also a short walk away, as is Waverley Railway station, the bus link to Edinburgh’s International airport and the main coach Station.
Pleasant walks can be enjoyed at nearby Carlton Hill, taking in Holyrood Park, Salisbury Crags and Arthus’s Seat, while the walkways of the Water of Leith and the Botanic Gardens are also easily reached on foot.
From the top of Leith Walk there is direct access to the A1 leading to East Lothian’s sandy beaches, golf courses and other sporting activities, within a 35 minute drive. The city bypass is also very accessible providing quick and easy routes to the motorway links throughout Scotland and to the south, while Edinburgh’s International Airport is a 20 minute taxi ride away.
The apartment is well equipped with washing machine and drying facilities, dishwasher, microwave, iron, TV, DVD player, heating & lighting. There is an ample supply of towels and linen which are included in rental. There are no taxes or extra fees.
