Location, location, location! The Robert Louis Stevenson Suite is a luxury apartment with unprecedented views of Edinburgh Castle. Located just 2 minutes from the iconic Princes St on the corner of George St (lots of shopping, bars and restaurants) and North Castle St, the apartment is in the heart of the New Town, making it an ideal base for visiting all the main tourist sites of Edinburgh.
The apartment block was one of the first flats to be built in the New Town by James Craig in 1790 and sits directly adjacent to the Edinburgh town house of Sir Walter Scott!
The flat opens into a square reception hall providing access to all rooms. To the front of the flat and with a southerly aspect from its twin windows is a magnificent drawing room featuring a gas fire with iron grate and pretty timber mantle, dado paneling and delicate plaster work. A glazed door provides secondary access from the drawing room into a striking breakfasting kitchen fitted with an attractive range of painted timber units topped with thick granite surfaces and incorporating a full range of integrated appliances, including a recessed range cooker set, oven/grill, and microwave as well as a washing machine and full height fridge/freezer.
The bedrooms comprise a generously proportioned master bedroom with a king size bed and dual aspect views towards Edinburgh Castle. This bedroom features secondary double glazing and also benefits from a luxurious en-suite shower room.
The second bedroom is set up as twin beds and is served by an equally well fitted family bathroom.
Larger parties can enquire about our apartment in the same building - The Walter Scott Suite ( same building below this one on the first floor), has the same high spec and stunning views of Edinburgh Castle. Combined, both properties can accommodate up to 8 / 10 people comfortably. It also has a very unique huge terrace with stunning views of Edinburgh Castle and can be made available by special request.
