About Graham & Sarah Mitchell

Setting up Graham Mitchell Architects in 1997, the business has developed in to a well-established architectural practice with offices both in Aberdeen and Edinburgh. We have a varied experience in both residential and commercial sectors with projects ranging from small house extensions and large new build bespoke houses to healthcare facilities, offices, agricultural buildings and hotels.

Graham & Sarah Mitchell purchased this house in 2010

Why Graham & Sarah Mitchell chose Edinburgh

Having both business and family links with Edinburgh, we embarked on a personal venture to have a property in the city that allowed us to be both client and architect.

The Georgian architecture of Edinburgh's New Town is beautiful and we just fell in love with it!

What makes this house unique

Forming part of a Category A listed terrace, the building had been converted into offices which were then lying vacant. Having been altered many times over the years, we set about lovingly restoring the building to its former glory as a single townhouse. The process has been both exciting and at times daunting; from uncovering the original period features and intrinsic charm of the property to managing the renovation building works on site, leaving us with a house of which we are immensely proud.

Beautiful historic home that has been completely redone in central location

  • 5 of 5

My family of six adults stayed here for two nights in September and were quite comfortable. Easy and detailed arrival instructions were provided as well as a stocked welcome basket. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

The only possible suggestion I'd share based on feedback from my family was that we would have gotten more use out of the second floor sitting room if it was another bedroom. There was plenty of sitting space in the main living room and dining room. Perhaps then the small bedroom on that floor could be converted to put a bathroom on that level.

A delightful, centrally-located respite in Edinburgh

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with our stay at Mitchell's in Edinburgh. Thanks to Christine, we were provided with all the amenities we needed (including top sheets for those warm nights) and advice/information about local places to visit for groceries, other shopping, restaurants and sights. Thank you for making this our home away from home in Edinburgh. We would certainly recommend it to friends and relatives when they come to Edinburgh. The location is perfect as it is centrally located on a quiet back street--within striking distance of the Royal Mile, Waverley Railway station, Scott Monument and Calton Hill. The washer/dryer were handy and the well-appointed kitchen (with dishwasher) made breakfast a breeze. The hamper of goodies was nice. I would suggest inquiring of guests about sensitivities/preferences, since allergies and diet may preclude consumption of certain items (ie: gluten, vegan/vegetarian, etc.). Beds were comfortable and there was ample space for the five of us. I would advise ear plugs for the early morning seagull noise. Also, be prepared for the stairways, since this is a townhouse. All-in-all, we had a very nice time here.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was exactly what we wanted. A very nice four bedroom town house in a great location in Edinburgh. My friends and I were doing a golf vacation and this was perfect and we could not ask for a better location. I would actually give it a 4.5 if that was possible because the WiFi was a bit spotty but really splitting hairs. . Nice kitchen/dining area and living room to relax. Conveniently located to the Oxford and Cambridge Bars and very short walking distance to lots of other restaurants/bars/nightlife without being right in the middle of it. .I would highly recommend it!

This property is beautiful and in such a terrific location!! We were a group of 7 adults and this property was so comfortable for us. Simon was amazing. He greeted us at the home and reviewed the ins and outs of the property. Couldn't have asked for a better trip to Edinburgh!! I highly recommend this property!!!
