The Forrest Road Residence is a fabulous 2-bedroom apartment that enjoys an unrivalled location set in the very heart of Edinburgh. Positioned right on the edge of the city’s historic Old Town, you are surrounded by an abundance of character and ‘must see’ attractions. Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile and the beautiful open green spaces of The Meadows are all just an easy stroll away. The National Museum of Scotland and the University of Edinburgh are also within walking distance. The Old Town itself and the Grassmarket area have a wide array of restaurants, cafes, bars, and eclectic boutiques - you really will be spoiled for choice of things to do. Princes Street, St James Quarter and George Street are within easy walking distance and afford a wider range of larger retail stores.
This apartment presents contemporary interiors throughout, that sit perfectly alongside original retained features; ornate cornicing, exposed floorboards, fireplaces, and high ceilings - all typical of old Edinburgh architecture.
When you’ve had your fill of exploring the closes and cobbled streets, sit back and relax in the generous, contemporary sitting room, decorated in the latest chic colour palette, and take full advantage of the huge flat-screen Smart TV and complimentary WiFi.
You’ll find everything you need for your self-catering holiday in the roomy, traditional kitchen, including a large oven and hob, along with a solid wooden dining table that seats four guests. Other appliances consist of a fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, and dishwasher. And that all-important coffee machine!
