Fettes – 2-bed is an inviting luxury self-catering Edinburgh apartment on the first floor of a New Town street. Fettes Row is right next to Stockbridge, a great spot for living like a local since it offers a range of independent shops, bistros and pubs as well as a weekly farmer’s market alongside the picturesque Water of Leith, which has a walkway taking you across the city with The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and Dean Gallery en route. The apartment is situated on a cul-de-sac so there is no passing traffic. There are a number of shops and cafes on adjacent Dundas Street.
The apartment has two bedrooms; the master has a freestanding triple wardrobe, a kingsize bed beside a plush wingback chair, fitted storage shelves and a clothes horse, plus working wooden shutters over its window. A dressing mirror hangs on the far wall. The guest bedroom is on the same side of the apartment (facing away from the street) and also has a double bed and chair, but its dressing mirror is atop a cabinet and there is a decorative hearth on the far wall. This room’s guests have use of a fitted double wardrobe housed in a dressing room off the middle of the hallway, which also has the added conveniences of a basin and hairdryer.
This self-catering apartment’s kitchen has rustic stone flooring and an extending dining table with a pair of chairs; an additional pair of upholstered chairs can be moved through from the hallway when the dining table is extended. The room comes equipped with a washing machine, hob and separate oven, dishwasher, a good selection of cooking and eating utensils and a coffee-maker and digital radio. There’s a pulley for clothes drying and an adjoining utility closet containing an iron, ironing board and fridge-freezer.
The bathroom is just opposite the kitchen and has a shower over the bath and a towel rail hanging on the inside of the door. A second hairdryer can also be found here.
For more formal meals guests can make use of the sitting room’s dining table with seating for four, plus a pair of plush armchairs and a three-seater sofa. A 39-inch flat screen LED smart TV and a bookshelf brimming with classics provide for entertainment. The bay windows at the far end of the room and the apartment’s high corniced ceilings make it a suitably breathable and relaxing space. A decorative hearth also features here.
Fettes – two bed makes for a homely retreat in an area of Edinburgh favoured by residents yet within walking distance of the Old Town and the city’s major tourist attractions. With the leisurely haven of Stockbridge also at your doorstep, all of central Edinburgh is close by for your enjoyment.
