Contemporary living in a beautiful converted Edwardian Villa

Gordon Terrace is a beautifully converted annex of an elegant Edwardian Maison Villa. This apartment definitely has the wow factor. Located in the Blackford area of Edinburgh, right next to King's Buildings and close to Cameron Toll, you benefit from quiet suburban surroundings but you are on the main bus route into the city centre within 20 mins. The owners of this apartment have gone to great lengths to ensure any guest of this apartment has a warm welcome. There are Molton Brown bathroom products and a luxury welcome pack, which includes Glenmorangie whisky, Twinings tea, Lavazza coffee, yummy biscuits and a sweet treat too.

This apartment is has two floors with a spacious open plan kitchen with breakfasting bar, dining area to seat 6-8 people and a charming seating area with floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the picturesque garden. There is a fabulous mix of old meets new in this apartment from the contemporary style kitchen and snazzy printed wallpaper in the dining area, to the lovely elegant ethnic touches decorating the apartment throughout. Tucked away by the stairs is a good sized utility room and there is a contemporary bathroom with walk-in shower & WC too.

The private garden has a gorgeous summer house which has a fitted sofa and round dining table which is ideal for entertaining come rain or shine. There is a small decked area with table and chairs and also a couple of luxury reclining chairs on the patio for a bit of sunbathing (yes we do get sunshine in Scotland!)

Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The master double bedroom has been lovingly decorated and furnished with attention to detail everywhere you look. There is a beautiful chest of drawers with large mirror. The second bedroom is very pretty and feminine with a fun brightly coloured chandelier. Nestled into the corner of the room is a small table and chair perfect for working or studying.

There's free on street parking too. 

What a wonderful home from home. You are sure to feel so comfortable and to have a very enjoyable and memorable stay. 

This self catering apartment is available during the month of August for Edinburgh Festival accommodation only.
