Sofia BFans of stunning interiors are going to absolutely love this special and unique two bedroom home on London Street. Every single thing has been considered and executed to the very highest standard. Everywhere you look, your eye rests on something beautiful and the quality of the furnishings is very high. At the same time, this is an incredibly comfortable home to stay in (we have stayed here and absolutely loved it!) Luxury is a much exploited word these days, but it definitely applies to this home. London Street is a rare and lovely thing.
London Street is a great location in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town. Just around the corner is brilliant Broughton Street where you'll find lovely boutiques, great cafes and some highly regarded restaurants like Fhior, L'Escargot Bleu and Le Roi Fou. Keen cooks are well served as you're able to buy great meat and fish, organic produce, tea and coffee locally. At the top of Broughton Street is the tram and John Lewis. Calton Hill is a short walk away. For art lovers, there's the superb Ingleby Gallery and the world class National Portrait Gallery within five minutes. St Andrew Square and Princes Street are less than 10 minutes walk away too, so you're very central here.
As soon as you open the front door, you'll have a sense of the beauty within. The owner is a talented interior designer and has done a huge amount of work to this home to get it up to the standards you see today. The hallway is the hub of this home with rooms leading off it. There's a fantastic bespoke desk area and the original stone staircase has been cleverly designed to be a feature.
The beautiful living room has wonderful comfy seating and a dining table to seat four. It looks onto the private garden. There's a smart TV with a sound bar and the sofa is so huge and comfortable, that this is the perfect place to indulge in a movie or box set. You'll find great books to read too. The galley kitchen leads off the sitting room. It's beautifully designed (like everything else in this home) with marble worktops and is well equipped. There's a Nespresso machine, Nutribullet and microwave. There's a guest loo at the end of the kitchen. A door leads from the kitchen to the private garden which has been beautifully landscaped. There are two seating areas and a table in the very attractive garden, so this is a lovely addition on a bright day. This beautiful home is dog friendly too.
There are two pretty bedrooms with very comfortable beds and great quality linens, so you will sleep very well here. In the bathroom, the space has been cleverly designed using a deep Japanese soaking tub with a shower over. The Japanese tub is a revelation - it's the best bath we've ever had. Unfortunately, the tub and shower aren't easily accessible if you have mobility issues.
If you want to spoil yourself staying in a beautifully luxurious home, then London Street is definitely the one for you. Homes don't come better than this and London Street gives you a rare opportunity to experience true luxury.

This is a dog friendly home. Dogs are welcome with owners who are going to be taking their dogs with them when they go out but we're afraid we can't accept dogs who are going to be regularly left at home whilst the owners, for example go to work, as our experience is that damage is caused in this scenario. An additional £20/week charge is made for each dog and a larger damage deposit will be taken to cover any breakages/damages or extra cleaning which is required.
24 hour cool-off period: Providing you book more than fourteen days before the start of your stay, you can cancel your booking within 24 hours of making it and we will refund 100% of any charges.
Cancelling after the booking is confirmed: Once a confirmation of booking has been issued to you via email by Dickins, you are responsible for the total price detailed. If you need to cancel, Dickins will try to relet the period for you and if they are successful, you will be reimbursed with the value of the relet less a £75 + VAT charge. If they are not able to relet the period, you will be responsible for the full rental cost. It may be a good idea to make sure you have travel insurance which covers cancellation.

East New Town & Hillside
The East New Town and Hillside area is where it’s at. Running from Scotland Street in the West to Broughton Road in the North, Lower London Road in the East and Regent Terrace in the South. Local resident, Peter Irvine, of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay fame christened the area The East Village.
The highpoint, literally, of the area is Calton Hill. A walk up here is rewarded to magnificent views across the whole of the city and photo opportunities abound on Calton Hill. The National Monument is much climbed and the Nelson Monument was built to look like Nelson’s upturned telescope. The City Observatory is now the home of the Collective Gallery and there’s a cute café there too. Calton Hill is an incredible place to watch the fireworks, The Beltane Festival held there on 30th April is very popular and an enormous torchlight procession on 30th December culminates on the Hill.Read More
