St Stephen Street is in the heart of Stockbridge – an almost-village in the New Town of Edinburgh. Stockbridge has a bohemian, arty vibe, with lots of galleries, vintage shops and boutiques. It also has a famous butcher, fishmonger and artisan cheesemonger (who supplies most of Scotland’s top restaurants). The bar and restaurant scene is also thriving here.
The apartment has recently been completely refurbished. It is a stunning garden apartment, with an open and airy feel, large windows and fabulous French doors in the bedroom. It has been decorated in a French ‘shabby chic’ style, with stripped wooden floors and reclaimed doors throughout. Wifi is available.
The apartment has an open plan lounge and kitchen. The lounge features a distressed leather couch, stylish chairs, French advertising artwork and a stunning mirror. Sit at the bistro table and enjoy coffee and croissants while watching the wall-mounted LCD or reading the paper, before you head out into the city.
The lounge is separated from the kitchen by a beautiful ‘L’ shaped oak worktop. The kitchen is stunning, and features stylish tiles, genuine French storage jars, vintage china and Joseph utensils. All brand new modern appliances are provided. The kitchen looks out onto the front courtyard, so you can brew yourself a coffee in the Boden cafetiere while you watch the world go by …
This is a truly stunning bedroom. It is decorated again in French ‘shabby chic’ style and features a charming, double wardrobe, chest of drawers and a full-length mirror. But the key feature of this room has to be the French doors that lead out to a secret courtyard full of geranium pots, herbs and flowers. You can sit here in peace and quiet in your pyjamas and listen to the birdsong before hitting the hustle and bustle of the world outside. It is truly a haven in the middle of the city.
The bathroom is utterly charming, and features a Mira Sport power shower, French artefacts and a stunning blue glass sink. There is underfloor heating and plenty of soft, white towels to keep you warm when you emerge from the shower.
We regret that we cannot allow smoking or pets – we want to keep the apartment special for all our clients now and in the future.
