A tasteful and elegant self-catering apartment on the first (US second) floor of an affluent New Town street.
Great King Street is a newly renovated two bedroom property on the first (US second) floor of a pleasant street in Edinburgh’s distinguished New Town. The property boasts two double bedrooms, an ensuite and family bathroom as well as an expansive sitting room and kitchen. It is a short walk from Princes Street and the Old Town, with Stockbridge in the opposite direction, each offering a different pace of Edinburgh living. The New Town itself amply provides for guests in its wealth of independent businesses and attractions including the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Playhouse Theatre and Omni leisure centre.
Tastefully decorated and appointed throughout, the property both pays homage to its past and is adapted to the needs of contemporary guests. The entryway immediately impresses with its ceiling arch and ornate plasterwork preserved from a former doorframe. Hallmarks of the property include high corniced ceilings dramatized by elaborate chandeliers and large shuttered windows. A calming palette of neutral cream, beige and stone tones unites all the rooms and complements their standout furnishings, such as the twirling bedposts and filigree stands in the second bedroom. Both the apartment’s baths are Japanese-style furo tubs and the family bathroom’s is accessed through a large walk-in shower. The kitchen is equipped with a range cooker as well as a range of white goods: fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, and a microwave. There is a Samsung TV beside the decorative hearth in the large sitting room.
Altogether Great King Street is a great offering for visitors to Edinburgh. The apartment is as classy as it is comfortable and equipped with all the conveniences you’d expect from a modern Edinburgh home.
