The West Port Castle View Residence
The West Port Residence is superbly central 1 bedroom property in the absolute heart of the Old Town. Decorated in simplistic chic, and brimming with charm and character, the West Port Residence even includes a balcony and access to a shared garden. If that isn’t enough to float your boat, you can enjoy your own private view of Edinburgh Castle from the windows!
The West Port is an attic property, which allows for large windows and fantastic skylights. The lounge is light and airy; we guarantee you’ll feel all your worries ease away as you sink into a delightfully squashy sofa and watch a good movie, or curl up in the adorable window alcove and lose yourself in a book. The open plan kitchen space features all the mod cons one would expect from a fabulous city centre property. There’s an ample amount of preparation space and dining table and bench will seat 4 famished adventurers.
When it’s time to visit the land of nod, the West Port Residence features 1 snug and serene bedroom, which even has access to the balcony. The lounge sofa also converts to a double sofa bed which can sleep up to 2 additional guests. Completing this property is a fresh, modern bathroom, with shower over bath, so whether you prefer a late night soak or an early morning shower, you’re well looked after at the West Port.
The West Port Residence’s location is an absolute dream. Nestled on the edge of the Grassmarket, the local area is brimming with history and things to do. The area is brimming with distinctive Scottish architecture and features one of only 2 known building emblems remaining in the Old Town.
Princes Street is a short walk away, and the Royal Mile is even closer - but if you’d like to venture further afield, Waverley train station is within easy walking distance and the area is well serviced by the extremely efficient Lothian Buses.
