A luxurious modern 3-storey holiday apartment in Edinburgh city centre
Located east of the New Town, the quiet setting of this holiday apartment might disguise just how central it really is. A mere 17-minute walk from Edinburgh Waverley Railway Station, Windsor St Lane is well-positioned for exploring the city on foot, with excellent transport links to boot. There are plenty of attractions nearby, including beautiful Calton Hill, with its incredible skyline views and collection of historic monuments.
Accessed through an archway on Montgomery Street, this property is a hidden gem in Edinburgh’s city centre.
Inside, two double bedrooms are located on the ground floor. Built-in wardrobes with wooden hangers provide ample storage, and fresh white walls create a clean and refreshing atmosphere. Soft carpet flooring adds comfort and warmth.
Decorated with teal floral throw cushions and a large teal throw, the first bedroom also includes two nightstands and two bamboo bedside lamps. A roller blind blocks out light for a restful night. The en-suite bathroom contains a shower cubicle with a glass door, and deluxe amenities including a hair dryer and a fog-free mirror.
The second bedroom features a generous tall window. A long teal curtain blocks out the light for a peaceful night of sleep. Beside the bed, two modern wooden bedside tables hold a decorative vase and two charming imitation oil lamps. Adjacent to this bedroom, the family bathroom comes with plenty of space and a full shower over bath. Amenities include a fog-free mirror, shelf, and a small grey swivel mirror.
A beautiful hardwood staircase with glass balustrades leads up to the stunning open plan living, dining, and kitchen area on the first floor. Double height ceilings let in plenty of light, creating a bright and airy atmosphere. The cosy grey L-shaped sectional sofa is ideal for relaxing in front of the smart flatscreen TV, and the two nesting walnut tables add flexibility to the space. A tartan throw, grey boucle armchair, and a cheerful yellow footstool add comfort and warmth.
Adjacent to the living area, a lovely oak dining table seats up to six, and two Danish bar stools provide seating at the kitchen island and breakfast bar. This contemporary, fully-fitted luxury Leicht kitchen makes the most of the beautiful space. Fully stocked with everything you might need for self catering, its premium Siemens appliances include an induction hob and a combination microwave/oven.
Guests can make breakfast using the Breville electric kettle and toaster.
The first-floor WC also contains a utility and storage cupboard. Here, you will find a washer/dryer, iron, ironing board, and plenty of cleaning supplies.
Continue upstairs, and you will reach the mezzanine level, where the third double bedroom is located. Overlooking the lounge area with eaves storage, this is a very special space with four skylights and four accompanying Velux blinds. Two three-drawer wooden bedside units provide storage, in addition to a white clothes rail with a storage basket. A small basket rocking chair offers another seating option in the room.
