You should really clip-clop across the cobbles in a horse-drawn carriage to arrive at this elegant 1820s townhouse, posing on a leafy Georgian square in fashionable Stockbridge. Your bright and elegant apartment is on the first floor: light shoots in through tall windows, soaring ceilings are framed by ornate cornices and an antique corner cupboard and slinky side table set off a modern bookcase and contemporary paintings. Ella’s touches are thoughtful and creative: cosy bedrooms have original wooden shutters and large headboards; the elegant double has beautiful garden views, the smaller has a dandelion stencil. There are good books, games, even a child’s buggy to borrow. All is perfect for couples or a small family. Cook in the warm and homely kitchen, eat together at a large wooden table (or play ping-pong on it!). Edinburgh’s delis are a hop away; Princes Street is five minutes by bus or a 15-minute stroll; restaurants, boutiques and galleries abound. And, seconds from the door, is a fantastic restored Victorian swim centre with sauna, steam room and heated pool. A lovely apartment in a juicy spot.
