À propos de ce logement
Superbly located In the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town this impressive flat in Drummond Place overlooks a communal garden. Newly refurbished by the architect owner, the flat which dates from 1815, combines Georgian elegance with modernist influences.
Drummond Place is in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic New Town which dates from the 1780's and constitutes the largest unspoilt area of Georgian architecture in the world. It is an exceptional grade A listed apartment which has been carefully remodelled and refurbished recently. The current owner is a London-based architect.
The flat will comfortably sleep 4 in two double bedrooms - one of which is ensuite. One of the beds is a super king and the other is a king. In addition there is a sofa bed in the drawing room and bedding is available on request.
The flat is located on the second floor of the building and because floor to ceiling heights in Georgian Edinburgh are really generous (the drawing room has a 4m ceiling) there are 45 steps up to the flat from the hall, however the spectacular views and quality of light more than compensate you for the climb!

For over 200 years, Drummond Place has been widely acknowledged as one of the finest squares in Europe. All the buildings in the square are Grade A listed and many of these houses have been occupied by famous painters, writers and academics. Currently Drummond Place features prominently in Alexander McCall Smith’s series of books, 44 SCOTLAND STREET.
In the centre of the square is a privately owned communal garden. It is a sanctuary of calm in the centre of the city.
The New and Old Towns of Edinburgh are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. To John Betjeman, Edinburgh was the “most beautiful of all the capitals of Europe”, while it inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to declare that “no situation could be more commanding for the head of a kingdom”.
Please be considerate to our neighbours in the rest of the building - by not slamming the front door or the door to the flat and please no parties.
