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.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Mitchells Townhouse is everything we thought it would be and more! It comfortable slept our party of 7. The location is absolutely perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, and the few extras they left for us in the fridge was a very nice touch. I would not hesitate recommending Mitchells Townhouse to anyone, and would love to visit again sometime! Without a doubt one of the best HomeAway/VRBO experiences I've had, and I've done a lot of them!

More than perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was a spectacular property in a perfect location. It was beautifully appointed with everything we needed, and then some. The extra touch of providing coffee, juice, snacks, bottled water and beer was so classy and welcomed after our long drive. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Beds were comfy and it was so quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wished that we had not been so busy that we didn't get a chance to cook in the lovely kitchen! Next time we will stay longer!!

Terrific house with only minor drawbacks

  • 5 of 5

Our reception was flawless. Christine was wonderful. The property is spacious, well-equipped and immaculate. Good location, within walking distance of many good restaurants. The "welcome" basket of goodies was a very nice touch (and delicious). The only drawbacks were noise (street traffic), no washcloths in the bathrooms and no top sheets on the beds. Also, the drain in the shower in the second upstairs bedroom was clogged up. Very minor inconveniences for such a nice home. We would definitely stay there again.
