Step inside The Dundas Street Residence No. 2 and start your holiday in style. This delightful two bedroom apartment is perfectly located for you to experience all of Edinburgh’s main attractions and hidden treasures alike. Sleeping up to 6 guests, this light and airy property is also adorned with traditional features such as high ceilings, stripped wood floors and original cornicing.
A spacious, open plan kitchen and living area is bathed in light from the large bay window, perfect for people watching over the busy street below. A sofa bed accommodates an additional two guests. The kitchen area is well equipped with everything you need to rustle up your own treats, and your entertainment needs are met with Freeview TV, WiFi and iPod dock. The master bedroom also enjoys generous proportions, plentiful light and a large bay window. A double bed ensures a comfortable night’s sleep. The second bedroom has a zip and link bed, giving you the option of a king size bed or two singles along with ample storage. A family bathroom completes this lovely home from home.
In terms of location, you couldn’t ask for more. Running up through the New Town and merging in to Hanover Street to spear the heart of the city centre, Dundas Street is one well-connected thoroughfare. George Street (think shopping bags at your feet whilst you sip an amaretto sour in the sunshine) and Princes Street are just a hop, skip and a jump away, fulfilling all of your designer and high street retail therapy needs. A little stroll further, but still less than a mile from your apartment, and you’ll find yourself on the Royal Mile; the famous artery running across the medieval Old Town and home to Edinburgh Castle at one end, and Holyrood Palace at the other. A five minute wander west takes you to Stockbridge, a quaint village-like district of Edinburgh with a fantastic Sunday market, cosy old pubs and picturesque meandering Water of Leith. Follow Dundas Street north, and visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, 72 acres of peace and quiet and breathtaking scenery.
For amenities, directly below is Margiotta. This residents’ favourite has been providing Edinburgh with local and organic produce for decades, and has an extensive supply of delicious and unusual little bits and bobs, as well as more regular supplies. If you prefer something a bit more familiar, there is a large Tesco on Broughton Road, just a few minutes walk east along Eyre Place. Round the corner on Brandon Terrace and Henderson Row, you’ll find numerous cafes, coffee shops and take-aways. Number 23 and 27 buses run from outside of the apartment, and will take you up to Princes Street, next to the Royal Mile and National Museum of Scotland (an absolute must!), and Edinburgh Southside.
