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.

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!!

Lovely Edinburgh townhouse in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were three (middle-aged) couples meeting up for two days of culture, shopping, good food and general fun. The house suited us perfectly. It was spacious, beautifully appointed, warm and handy for walking everywhere. The welcome pack was more than generous and although we did little cooking, the kitchen was well-equipped if you wanted to do so. Contact with the property owner beforehand was excellent and we requested and received some very good suggestions for restaurants in the area. Edinburgh was as wonderful as ever and I am sure we will be back again before too long! ( Please note - The house is on several floors and up steps from the street so may not suit guests with limited mobility).

The house is spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We were only in Edinburgh for a few days so we needed to be close to the action to see as much as possible. The House is just a couple of blocks away from Princes Street, well withing walking distance. There was ample pay and display parking in front of the House and parking is free after 6:30 pm. The House was amazing! All bedrooms are very large and yet cosy and are mostly all with ensuites. The family would enjoy our breakfasts together in the spacious and well fitted kitchen before heading out to see the sights. This property was better than advertised and much better than expected. I highly recommend it!
