2A Hart Street is an exceptional two-bedroom, two-bathroom garden property that was completely refurbished in 2005 -and redecorated in 2017 - 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.

Perfect apartment and location!
Thank you for providing a wonderful home for our stay in Edinburgh. The apartment had every accommodation we could have asked for and was very luxurious! The location was perfect and we would recommend to couples or families! Diane was also very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.
Cozy garden unit
Great place- quiet, homey, comfortable, packed with lots to help explore the area. Great location to explore Edinburough as well, wish we had more time to do so!
Centrally located, good sized propery
We spent three nights in Lizzie's apartment just before Christmas. Diane, the manager, was very accommodating for our early arrival, especially after our flight landed on time and the tram was on time, meaning we were earlier than expected!
The apartment is very spacious, much bigger than it appears on the pictures. The main attraction for us was the central location. A 5 minute walk from the last tram stop and a 10 minute walk to Princes Street yet this was a really quiet location.
Being a colder time of the year, a concern might be whether the apartment would be warm enough - it was! In fact it was nice to stay in an apartment where it was necessary to turn the heating down, rather than up.
We stayed as a family of three and would definitely stay here again.
Excellent Apartment but need to better prepare for children.
We enjoyed this apartment. Bedrooms were comfy, kitchen well stocked, nice living room . Second bathroom in the hallway was a little tight but everything worked. Had a bit of a dust problem in the master bedroom but all other areas were clean. Good layout for 4 adults, plenty of running room for the toddler.
I think we were the first occupants with a small child. The sleeping accommodation was a Graco cot, very uncomfortable. The manager promptly ordered a replacement and had it shipped overnight. Bad luck, it had a hole in the air mattress. We wound up walking to John Louis buying an air mattress which thankfully they had it stock. I recommend a fold away cot as a solution for the future.
That said, the apartment was located in a quieter area with good shops, grocery stores, and restaurants just around the corner. The number 8 bus took us up the hill to old town and the museums but you could do this on foot as well.
We would stay here again.
Wonderful apartment with everything you could need in a terrific neighborhood.
Clean and comfy flat with a warm welcome from property mgr.
Very well appointed, comfortable, well-located.
We had a great time staying at Lizzie Norton's apartment. The apartment is spacious, with a great kitchen (commercial style range etc), comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, washer and dryer. The place has an inviting walled garden, perfect for sitting when the weather permits. The setting is residential and quiet, but ideally located -- a short walk from Princes Street and much of downtown Edinburgh. Fairly priced. Very highly recommended.
Situated in the heart of Edinburgh New Town, this apartment is an ideal choice for its close proximity to shopping, galleries, bars & restaurants - all within a short walk. It is also conveniently located for grocery stores, wine merchants, florists, newsagents, banks, etc. In all, the perfect location for a short break in this exciting, cultural city.
