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 New Town

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 house, great location. Amazing experience to be repeated

  • 5 of 5

Really couldn't find any fault at all with the property. Beautiful house, tasteful decoration, extremely well-equipped and perfect location combined for the perfect city break. We had three generations staying and everyone loved it. A real gem in a beautiful city.

Absolutely stunning homely property

  • 5 of 5

There was 7 adults in our party. A beautiful comfortable home with ample space for us all. The family kitchen was superb with plenty of dishes etc. My brother in law thoroughly enjoyed cooking breakfast on the hob for everyone. Christine was amazing to deal with and extremely helpful. Our welcome basket was amply filled complete with all dietary needs for our party. The location was excellent and we would not hesitate booking again in the future. Thank you for making everything perfect for the surprise birthday weekend.

Amazing house and fantastic owners!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect in every way, location included! Everything you need and more! But the owners are on another level, absolutely amazing people who we cannot thank enough! My Mum was taken ill on our departure day, we where suppose to check out at 11am but unfortunately my Mum could not leave her bed. Sarah and Graham let us stay until we needed no questions asked! Fantastic people who are unbelievably kind, we honestly cannot say thank you enough and we will a million percent be using this house when next in Edinburgh!!
