Upon entering the apartment you will feel right at home. The location is hard to beat. If you love a bit of shopping, Edinburgh's smartest shopping street, George Street, is a minute's walk away so there is an incredible choice of things to see and do on the doorstep.
The gorgeous sitting room is spacious and bright with a warm homely feel. It has two large sash & case windows overlooking Frederick Street and there are original wooden floors throughout the apartment. There is a super comfortable sofa and chair so you can sit and get engrossed in your favourite book or watch a great film on the flat screen TV. Nestled in the corner of the sitting room is a dining table where you can enjoy the fruits of your labour while watching the world go by below.
The hallway off the sitting room leads you to the small but perfectly formed kitchen. This is fully equipped for all your needs including (but not limited to) a microwave and washing machine. There is also a bathroom with bath and shower (mind the step though as there are a couple of steps leading into the bathroom).
After eating a slap up meal and relaxing in front of the TV, rest your weary head in the pretty double bedroom. Situated at the front of the apartment, this room has a large window overlooking Frederick Street and has a traditional wooden wardrobe to hang your clothes.

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
