Introduction


Providing a unique location from which to enjoy a visit to Edinburgh, the apartment occupies the raised ground floor of what was a traditional town house on Northumberland Street. We are sure you will enjoy the grandeur and history of this 1807 Georgian building.


Location


Northumberland Street is a quiet mainly residential street within the city centre. The city centre shopping streets, visitor attractions and business districts are all within an easy walk. A few minutes walk in the opposite direction leads you down to the more relaxed atmosphere of Stockbridge which is full of fascinating artisan shops, bars and restaurants.


History


The Major’s Apartment
As well as the rich architectural history, the apartment was previously the home of a British Army Major who became the business manager of the Edinburgh Military Tattoo for over 20 years until his retirement. He is widely recognised for developing the event into the great international spectacle that it is today.


Renovation


The apartment has recently undergone extensive renovation being careful to preserve all of the fantastic original period features such as marble fireplaces and fine cornice and plaster work. The main drawing room (lounge) has fully restored tall Georgian windows and shutters, beautiful high ceilings and a bowed wall. Wide plank oak floors, limestone tiles and granite all add a touch of luxury to this spacious accommodation.


Creating the Facilities


Furnished with every comfort, large leather Chesterfield sofa’s flank each side of the black marble fireplace. Fast broadband, WiFi and Virgin home entertainment provide modern essentials. The quality kitchen is fitted with every convenience.


A 'Super King' sized four poster bed is the focal point of the large bedroom. Designed for two, the bathroom offers twin sinks, electric sockets, heated mirrors and a large wet room shower area.
