Peering out the sash windows of this listed Georgian townhouse apartment, you’ll see the iconic green dome of Charlotte Square Gardens right there before you. It’s just one of the many hotspots of Edinburgh’s prestigious New Town district – and luckily for you, it's all within easy reach from this home. Pay a visit to the National Museum of Scotland, then grab a coffee for a stroll through the Queen Street Gardens, right across the street. When thoughts turn to lunch, make a beeline for nearby Rose Street with its eclectic mix of restaurants and pubs. And, of course, there’s always the mighty Edinburgh Castle – how could we forget? When it’s time to break away from the bustle, head back to your light-filled apartment and put your feet up in style. Set over two floors and united by pristine, elegant interiors, it’s a joy to return to. And thanks to its top floor position, the views are superb, and it’s blissfully quiet at night. Rustle up a few wee drams and hunker down in that pair of wing-back chairs with the papers – they’ve got late afternoon dozes written all over them. And when it’s finally time to bid this vibrant city farewell, check out is a cinch with your car parked downstairs in the home’s private garage. Or hop back on the train, just a short walk from your door, and away you go.

Local guide


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...
