CONTEMPORARY 2 BEDROOM/2 BATHROOM, GEORGIAN NEW TOWN APARTMENT WITH GARDEN

New Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Centrally located, walking distance of designer shops, bars, restaurants.

2A Hart Street is an exceptional two-bedroom, two-bathroom garden property that was completely refurbished in 2005 in a modern style that pleasingly and interestingly both contrasts with and yet complements the exterior of this fine Georgian building.

Just an easy 10 minute walk from Edinburgh’s famous Waverley Station, Princes Street, the five-star Balmoral Hotel and designer stores such as Harvey Nichols, Mulberry and Louis Vuitton, the flat could scarcely be more centrally situated. Its immediate environs of Broughton Street are both lively and individualistic. Life is lived here around the clock, but Hart Street itself is a quiet oasis.

The interior walls are mostly white, with a couple of contrasting pastel-coloured panels. The kitchen is state-of-the-art, whilst the living area has an inordinately, comfortable leather sofa and an alluring electric flame effect fire. The bedecked and remarkably light garden has a striking water feature.

GARDEN: The garden represents this apartment’s best hidden asset. Mostly decked and therefore very low-maintenance, its unusual, soothing rock water feature is the centrepiece. This space comes into its own in the spring and summer months, since, unlike so many New Town gardens it actually gets quite a lot of sun, especially in the late afternoons and evenings. Being west-facing, with no towering buildings to block the sun’s rays, it is a rare retreat in this part of Edinburgh. Throughout the year, however, the inspired outdoor lighting makes this tranquil terrace an inspired addition to the property.

HART STREET: Compared to very many streets in the New Town, the elegantly wide Hart Street is a haven. Located just off Broughton Street, to the south of Forth Street, it is covered with tarmac. (Tarmac is one of Scotland's great inventions so, unlike many roads around here, there is no rude awakening by the sound of rubber tyres – yet another great Scottish invention, by the way – rumbling over the cobbles!) Hart Street is part of an exquisite Georgian development which was conceived and overseen by Hugh Cairncross in the early 19th Century. Robert Adam (the most celebrated of all British Georgian architects) was in fact Cairncross's mentor.

Situated within the vibrant Broughton village, with its many interesting bars and restaurants and inspiring shops, the apartment is less than 15 minutes walk from the main Waverley station and Princes Street.

The flat is just 5 minutes on foot away from the prestigious John Lewis, Harvey Nichols and Jenners department stores, not to mention the venerable Italian delicatessen, Valvona & Crolla. Most key Festival and Fringe venues are within fairly easy reach and taxis are generally easily hailed from the nearby rank at the top of Leith Walk. There is a new Tesco Metro supermarket in Picardy Place, under 5 mins walk from the apartment. For those wishing to rent a car, Hertz have an office in Picardy Place too.

Edinburgh's main shopiing areas of Princes Street and George Street are likewise easily accessed on foot as are the galleries such as the National Gallery or the Royal Scottish Academy - as well as the the lively contemporary commercial galleries around Dundas Street in the New Town.

Great accommodations and just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed here at the end of our extended trip to France and the U.K. This was by far the best maintained (and most economical) of all our accommodations (also rentals). Great location for seeing all the major attractions in Edinburgh, while also being situated in a neighborhood with wonderful local restaurants.

The appartment is very close to the city center. A ten minute walk to the Royal Mile and other attractions. We loved this place and would definitley stay there again.

Sleeps Four in Perfect Harmony

  • 4 of 5
This comfortable and spacious-yet-cozy flat is perfectly suited for two couples travelling together. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one is an en suite) allows enough personal space for everyone to relax at the end of a full days sightseeing. The garden terrace is inviting (but unfortunately saw little use due to cooler temperatures during our visit).

The location is ideal: situated in New Town close to the centre of Edinburgh but only two turns off the main thoroughfares - so there is little or no traffic noise at night. We reached most of our destinations on foot or via the excellent bus service. We also managed day trips to Glasgow and Pitlochry via early trains from Waverley Station which is barely a fifteen minute walk away.

The flat is equipped with everything one might need for an extended stay and there is a Tesco Express nearby (five minute walk) for groceries. A full-size Tesco is 15 minutes away. You will be inspired by the flat's decor to visit the nearby John Lewis for items for your own home.

There are several restaurants in the neighbourhood and we can personally recommend both the Conan Doyle and the Olive Branch Bistro for brunch. Regrettably time (and a full schedule of sightseeing) did not permit us to try any of the others.

Finally this review would not be complete without mention of the owner, Lizzie and Diane, the manager. Lizzie handled our enquiries and all subsequent communications (and of course payment) efficiently and professionally. Meeting Diane was a real treat and she made us feel quite welcome.

Book this apartment, you won't be sorry!
