Sitting proudly in the heart of the New Town, this luxurious two bedroom property welcomes you to become a part of Edinburgh's lesser mentioned regal past. Walk the surprisingly smooth cobbled streets to your local gallery or artisan bakery; take in the grandeur of the Georgian and Neo-Classical architecture; or stroll to your nearest leafy garden. But don't worry, if you find yourself craving castles and medieval streets, the dark history of the Old Town is only a 15 minute walk or short bus journey away.
The Great King Street Apartment is a wonderful, spacious, first floor property prepared to pamper up to four guests in two double bedrooms. Both bedrooms have fitted wardrobes and oodles of comfort, and are lovingly decorated with unique furnishings. The family bathroom is short but sweet, with a crisp white three piece suite, and a thermostatic power shower over bath that will knock your socks off.
Impressive windows bathe the drawing room in lashings of light, bringing to life the original features, cornice detailing and feature fireplace. Handpicked furniture completes this living area, affirming the homely yet stylish vibe. If you can take your eyes away from the decor, then your entertainment needs are also met with free WiFi and Freeview television.
Stately sliding doors lead in to the dining area and kitchen, which both come well equipped to allow the indulgence to continue. The generous dining table vies for attention with yet another feature fireplace, and traditional sanded floorboards. The fully fitted kitchen has everything you need to make this a real home from home, with a coffee maker, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer and tumble dryer.
The local vicinity is awash with boutique stores, artisan cafes, gastro bars, restaurants and art galleries.
