Saxe Coburg sleeps 4

Description

This beautiful self catering apartment occupies the entire ground floor of a charming small townhouse in an excellent location and in one of Edinburgh’s most perfect Georgian Squares. This wonderfully bright drawing room apartment which sleeps four people has a lovely sun catching drawing room with deep window seats and two most relaxing bedrooms and retains all the charms of the Georgian era with a sense of soft décor and luxurious comfort throughout with living flame open fire, working shutters, oak flooring and warm lighting. Virtually next door to the apartment are the glorious Glenogle Baths, restored to their Victorian splendour of 1897 with beautiful heated pool and sauna and open for a morning dip or evening wind down. Located in the quirky bohemian village of Stockbridge yet only a 10 minute walk to the city centre, Saxe Coburg Place very much enjoys the best of both worlds of village living in the heart of neo-classical New Town. Most find themselves quite smitten with Stockbridge village itself. It’s a great place for shop browsing by day and eating and drinking by night. Set around a maze of cobbled streets it's a marketplace for antiques and quality gifts, speciality food, many art galleries, second hand bookshops and vintage boutiques...and just a touch of eccentricity!

Interior layout Drawing room/Dining room

A beautifully proportioned, twin windowed, south facing drawing room enjoying sunlight by day and traditional Georgian street lamplight at night. There are ample comfortable cream sofas and armchairs surrounding the marble fireplace which has a living flame fire and large over mantle mirror. Lamps, rugs, pictures and soft décor add to the many comforts as does the illuminated oak glass bureau equipped with crystal champagne flutes. A dining area by the window completes this room and working shutters can be closed at night for extra snugness.

Kitchenette

A small but well equipped kitchenette is located off the drawing room with dishwasher, washing/drying machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, gas hob and electric oven. Added luxuries include crystal champagne flutes for evening celebrations and a coffee maker for a relaxing Sunday morning.


Master Bedroom

The master bedroom is beautifully presented and enjoys a quiet and sunny position to the rear looking towards The Royal Botanical Garden. It has fitted wardrobes and a contemporary en-suite bathroom and deep window seat from which to admire the garden and views beyond.

Bedroom 2

A bright and peaceful room again located to the rear which enjoys the quiet and sunshine. It also has a deep window seat, a perfect reading spot overlooking the garden.

Separate WC and Shower room

Bedroom 2 has access to the separate contemporary shower room with basin and WC.

Exterior This A listed apartment is located in Edinburgh's loveliest Georgian Square in the heart of Stockbridge, part of the New Town which forms part of the World Heritage Site. A 10-15 walk through the cobbled streets of the historic New Town brings you to the city centre, with its wonderful shops and galleries, the Royal Mile and Edinburgh Castle, while just round the corner are stylish cafes, bars and restaurants of Stockbridge. Located two doors along are the beautiful Victorian swimming baths of Glenogle where you can enjoy the heated swimming pool, sauna and steam room. A 5 minute stroll across the river takes you to Edinburgh's famous Royal Botanic Gardens with 70 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and magnificent palm houses. This is the perfect base for enjoying Edinburgh,

Limited mobility access This is a ground floor apartment on one level. There are 3 entrance steps to the apartment.

I have used The Edinburgh Address a few times now and every time things work out perfectly. As I am travelling from Hong Kong and times of arrival are usually dependent on flights being on time etc. there is always a fair degree of uncertainty involved and yet on each and every occasion the staff have accommodated my arrival time and made things very easy for me. The accommodation is always fabulous and always exactly as advertised, well stocked and perfect for a few days in Edinburgh. The organization is trustworthy, friendly, accommodating , very efficient and highly recommended. In these days of internet horror stories my experience with The Edinburgh Address have always been excellent .

The Flat was just perfect for two nights in Edinburgh. There were 4 of us and whilst the flat is compact, it was perfect for our needs. We dined out, but congregated in the beautiful living space just to chill out chat and relax. The flat is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything, (except I could not find the iron!!!) and very clean and homely. We did cook breakfast in the tiny kitchen and that was fine. The area around the flat is stunning, so tranquil and aesthetically beautiful. It is very convenient for all sorts of lovely outings . Great pubs and restaurants , and a bonus for the kids fabulous second hand shops. Highly recommended.
