This is an exceptional example of an original merchant's apartment close to the ancient Port of Leith, with stunning features, elaborate cornicing, stained glass, wall murals, flag stone flooring and hand carved doors. The apartment has just recently been refurbished with fresh paintwork and new furniture.
Leith was once an independent town from Edinburgh, albeit only ten minutes from the city centre, and has managed to retain much of it's unique character and distinctive personality!
The apartment has it's own private entrance, just off the park and it is situated in a quiet, and peaceful corner of Leith, which is also renowned for it's vibrant and lively shopping, bar and restaurant scene. The lounge is very bright and spacious (south-facing) open-plan with extraordinary high ornate ceilings and lots of Georgian characteristics, including remote controlled authentic gas fire within Georgian surround. All within a contemporary decor feel.

I worked as an actor for many years and as a radio broadcaster on the BBC, presenting arts programmes. I'm also very interested in cultural tourism projects and in 1996 created The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour, an award winning tour performed by professional actors. It runs throughout the year and Rick Steves, presenter of travel programmes USA wide, is quoted as saying in a recent review, 'for an entertaining insight into the greats of Scottish literature, served up with new friends, good beer, and lots of laughs, The Edinburgh Literary Pub Tour is my vote for the best way to spend an Edinburgh Evening!' so can't be bad!! Let me know if your interested in going on the tour at check-in and I can reserve you a slot.
