This is a wonderful, spacious, traditional seaside townhouse, built at a time when wealthy Edinburgh families also bought a house by the sea in order to cool off on those hot summer days.
Laid out over 3 floors, plus a mezzanine level, the wide staircases are a feature, particularly the winding staircase between the first and second floors (note; they're a bit too wide for standard stair gates, so may not be ideal for young children). The drawing room is positioned on the first floor, as was the norm for the time, with 3 large windows that let the light stream in. From the top floor there are views to Arthur's Seat from the front and across the Firth of Forth to Fife at the rear.
The house has undergone an extensive renovation to a very high standard and boasts 4 bedrooms, drawing room, dining room, new fitted kitchen, family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, a WC on each floor, full gas central heating, high pressure hot water system, new fitted kitchen, master bedroom with ensuite, fresh decoration throughout, WiFi, cable TV, video and DVD, iron and ironing board, hair dryers, linen and towels. Everything you need in a self-catering house near Edinburgh!
Note to returning guests - the piano is leaving the house and joining me on the West coast in Jan 19
