Recently renovated, our ground floor Victorian flat is on a quiet square within the cosmopolitan Bruntsfield area of Edinburgh. Enjoy nights out in the many nearby bars and restaurants and, by day, take a walk along the canal, Meadows or into town.
The flat comfortably accommodates 4 adults or a party of 5 with at least one child (not 5 adults).
Our flat has many traditional Victorian features from the mosaic tiled entrance to the high ceilings, ornate plasterwork and working shutters. But we have recently refurbished every room with modern furniture, designer wallpapers, mood lighting and original artwork giving the flat a funky, retro feel but with all modern comforts including dishwasher, constant hot water and Wi-Fi. With two double bedrooms, the flat will comfortably accommodate four adults. There is also a large single sofa bed in the main bedroom which is suitable for a 5th person if a child/teenager.
There is also direct access to a newly landscaped garden where you can enjoy al fresco dining.

The flat is on the ground floor of a traditional sandstone tenement with its own main door. Guests will have use of the whole flat. This consists of: an open plan living room with kitchen and dining areas. This room has a retro 1950's feel with large L-shaped sofa to relax and watch cable TV or our varied selection of DVDs. The kitchen has all mod cons including a large fridge freezer and microwave with a choice of under unit lighting effects depending on your mood! The patio door gives lots of light and access to a small shared rear garden with table and chairs, which is perfect for an 'al fresco' breakfast or lunch. There is a separate utility room providing washing/drying facilities as well as a dishwasher. The bright master bedroom is sleek and large enough to offer additional living space, work space or sleeping space for an extra guest on the large single sofa bed. It has been furnished with modern German furniture (including a large double wardrobe and "floating" bed) designer lighting and original artwork. There is also a music system and TV. The second smaller double bedroom has a window to the rear garden with modern fitted furniture and designer wallpaper. Both double beds have a memory foam mattress. The quirky bathroom has a raised full-sized bath and overhead shower. The spacious hall is decorated with original artworks and provides another work space and walk-in cupboard which is handy for storing coats and suitcases. Linen and towels will be provided.
The apartment is close to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. A pleasant walk along the Union Canal will take you there in around 10 minutes.
We have a strict no smoking and pets policy. As the flat is situated in a quiet residential area it would be suitable for families or couples but would not be suitable for groups of younger people. No parties please!
