About Graham & Sarah Mitchell

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.
Local Services & Businesses
We all loved our weekend at Mitchells of Young Street while attending a friends wedding. The house was very comfortable and welcoming, in a perfect location for us. The rooms are of generous size and very tastefully furnished. Thank you for accommodating our early entry time and also for the wonderful hamper, a much appreciated gesture :)
Beautiful Accommodations and Great Location
6 of us (three couples) stayed at this town home for two nights during a trip in the UK. The house is quite large with many sitting areas and bedrooms, and is appointed very well. You can tell the owners are architects with all of the furnishings and special details. I appreciate them being an architect myself. There was a generous welcome basket with some treats and drinks on our arrival. Wish we could have stayed in Edinburgh longer to enjoy the home and the sites. Would highly recommend! Good price for a nice home in a great location! Thank you Graham and Sarah!
Beautiful apartment very spacious
Enjoyed our weekend break apartment so big we didn't even use the second lounge. The welcome hamper was lovely to arrive to and was appreciated very much.all in all a lovely stay the only gripe was a few extra towels would of been nice and a few large glasses and extra crockery would help as a bit limited. Would definitely return again
This is a second visit to this lovely Edinburgh house. Four friends meet up in Edinburgh every year and this house is in an ideal situation for visiting galleries, shopping and walking distance to great restaurants. The house has a well equipped kitchen with all appliances provided. The beds are comfortable, plenty of hot water for showers. The house is very spacious with space to sit quietly as there are two sitting rooms.
Beautiful house, great location. Amazing experience to be repeated
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.
