Monochrome style meets Edinburgh's history in this city centre apartment, nestled on one of the city's most famous streets; George Street. The flat pays tribute to city icons such as Sean Connery and Calton Hill with a coherent collection of black-and-white prints lining the living area's walls. Original feature fireplaces in the bedroom, a chandelier in the living room, and cornicing like icing on a cake hark back to the days when horse and carriage would clatter along the wide boulevard below. George Street has its own rich history, originally built as "the principal street" of the New Town. The neighbouring townhouses are architectural marvels. High-end boutiques and upscale restaurants have given these buildings a new purpose in the 21st century. With this apartment, the city's truly on your doorstep. Get out and explore.

About New Town

Edinburgh’s New Town isn’t new at all – it’s a glorious example of 18th-century Georgian town planning and architecture that has rightfully earned its UNESCO World Heritage Status. There’s a lot more than beautiful architecture on offer here though. Located in the centre of the city, it’s a short walk from Waverley Station, and well serviced by public transport. Princes Street, George Street, St Andrew’s Square, and the West End...
