Beautiful, spacious, 2 bedroomed ground floor apartment within a traditional Victorian townhouse located only minutes from Haymarket Station & the airport bus stop, and a short walk from Princes Street and all the main sights in Edinburgh. There is a dedicated parking space for guests nearby, plus access to private gated residents' gardens. The property oozes high quality modern comfort with a traditional architectural backdrop.
Ornate cornicing decorates the spacious sitting room with dining table situated in the bay window, 40” flat screen TV + DVD player, wood burning stove in the fireplace and super comfortable sofas for you to relax on. The two large bedrooms are quietly located at the rear of the property overlooking gardens; the master bedroom has a double mahogany sleigh bed and the second bedroom has 2 single beds with solid wood bedframes. A 5th guest can be accomodated on a fold-down bed with comfortable mattress. The kitchen is well equipped with gas hob, electric oven, microwave, washer-dryer and dishwasher.

So whether you choose to eat out, or stay in by the fire, you will not go hungry.
