What The Dickins: A Tale Of Edinburgh City

Edinburgh Luxury Apartments To Book Now!

London Street - Dickins

Luxury is a somewhat complex and flexible concept which changes with age, circumstances and relationships. It means different things to different people at different stages of their lives. At my stage in life with two noisy boys and a busy office to run, my luxury is time. Being left alone with a pile of quality magazines and a comfy chair fills me with joy. Ten years ago it would have been completely different! One thing we can all agree on though, is that Edinburgh has more than its fair share of special and unique homes. And whilst the term luxury is banded about far too often these days, describing everything from yoghurts to tea, in this blog we share truly luxury Edinburgh apartments you can book now….

What Is Luxury Now?

In the 21st century, the idea of luxury isn’t just defined by consumer objects. Owning flash things isn’t always a motivation for many especially the younger generation. They are more likely to seek out smaller, local labels who seem to better placed fulfil the promise of the special, the rare and the unique. In Edinburgh, we’re a local family run business, based in the heart of the New Town who in turn support many other local businesses and families.

Special and unique are words we’ve used to describe our homes since the very beginning. We’re lucky to look after some of the most wonderful homes you could hope to call home – even for a few days – in Edinburgh. These Edinburgh luxury apartments are available to book for months at a time too.

Have your very own private terrace worthy of an entry to The Chelsea Flower Show in Carlton Street

In our fast-paced and rather complex world, shared experiences and good times are increasingly being discussed as luxuries. As well as the luxury of putting our phones down and having a digital detox, finding spaces that allow friends and family to come together increasingly defines the special and extraordinary. Spaces which feed desires for togetherness and privacy. At Dickins, we look after many wonderful homes where you can come together, whether it’s just two of you or a larger gathering.

Luxury Edinburgh Apartments To Gather In

Here we’ll highlight a selection of homes which are special places to gather and fantastic quality too.

One thing that Edinburgh apartments often luxuriate in is space. The rooms can be huge, dripping with architectural details, high ceilings and large sash and case windows. These spaces are unrivalled in the UK. Those Georgians knew a thing or two about classic, timeless spaces.

Bring friends together in Fettes Row

Again, this is home for the owners and their family when they’re in the UK and so they’ve furnished and equipped it for themselves and it’s gorgeous. There are two floors, so lots and lots of space. There’s a lovely peaceful vibe here and we think the lighting is very clever. The dining kitchen and sitting room are the stars of the show and with three comfortable bedrooms downstairs, it’s a wonderful place to come together.
