A ten-minute trot from Princes Street is a Georgian square dating from 1821. The Glenogle Baths are on the corner and the boho shops are a stroll away – hard to imagine a more privileged spot. This corniced, shuttered, sash-windowed apartment, its rooms flooded with light, spreads itself across the ground floor of a delightful townhouse on Saxe Coburg Place. Enter the wide hallway, turn left in front of the stair… there on the table to welcome you are a half bottle of prosecco, Edinburgh shortbread, fresh fruit and flowers. With its palette of soft yellows and creams, and immaculate furnishings in classic-modern style, this is a perfect pad for culture lovers and families alike. You get a sunny drawing room with an illuminated glass drinks cabinet, a white rug and cream sofas, a dining area by the window, and a top-notch kitchenette. You’ll love the farmers’ market on Sundays at Jubilee Gardens, and the legendary Bailie Bar near the Water of Leith, a cosy traditional pub. Return to serene bedrooms with deep window seats facing the small shared garden, and access to that lovely, lush, leafy square.
