What a home this is and the location is hard to beat too. North Castle Street runs off George Street and so if you like to shop, you'll be in paradise. And if you don't like shopping, you'll still be extremely happy! Being this central means that the choice of great cafes, bars and restaurants on the doorstep is almost bewildering. Step out of your front door and look left and you'll see Edinburgh Castle. Look right and you'll see across the Firth of Forth to Fife. You can walk to Edinburgh's major attractions from here and in The Edinburgh Festival the location is great too. There's a supermarket a couple of minutes walk away.
North Castle Street is a beautiful street with bow fronted houses and fine architectural details. Inside the ceilings are high and the rooms are wonderfully large and stylish. This is an apartment which feels like a house and it's elegant and luxurious with a wonderful sense of home. It is beautifully presented and cared for by the owners for whom it is home from time to time.
You walk through the beautiful front door into a welcoming and luxurious hallway with a stone flag floor. To the left is the delightful sitting room with lots of very comfy seating. There's a leather armchair and footstool by the window which is a dreamy spot for curling up with a good book. The dining kitchen is a wonderful room. The kitchen itself is equipped as you'd expect a family home of this calibre to be. The dining table, which seats 8 comfortably, sits under a large window and is a wonderful place to gather. There's a cosy sofa in this room too. There's a guest loo off the dining area.
The attractive staircase leads to the first floor and the bedrooms. The three bedrooms each have a TV and comfortable beds with quality linen. The master bedroom is an absolute delight! It's huge with a high ceiling and a bow ended windows. It feels very luxurious and there's an attractive ensuite bathroom (bath only) too. The pretty second double bedroom has a loo and wash hand basin and the third double bedroom is also attractive. There's a shower room on this level and the utility room too.
North Castle Street is New Town living at its finest. This is a home you'll be absolutely delighted you chose to stay in.

Central New Town
The Central New Town spans from Scotland Street in the East to Randolph Crescent in the West and from Princes Street in the South to Brandon Terrace in the North. It encompasses most of Edinburgh’s beautiful and enviable Georgian New Town.
In 1766 James Craig, aged 27, entered a competition to design a New Town to ease overcrowding in the Old Town. There were six entries and he won. His plan was for St Andrew Square and Charlotte Square, Princes Street, George Street and Queen Street and was presented to King George III in 1767. Edinburgh’s New Town is now world famous and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. The Georgian New Town is known for its graceful sweeping crescents, wide streets and private central gardens. The beautiful stone buildings have large astragal windows that we love to peep in on a winters evening to see what lies inside. The architectural details and high ceilings in Edinburgh’s New Town put Bath to shame. The architectural highlights are Charlotte Square, Moray Place and Heriot Row.Read More
