The Shandwick Place Residence No. 2

With its sweeping staircase and stunning cupula, a grand entrance welcomes you to The Shandwick Residence. This fabulous duplex two-bedroom apartment is perfectly located in the heart of the city's West End, just seconds from Princes Street and all of Edinburgh’s main sightseeing attractions. You couldn’t be better placed to enjoy everything this capital city has to offer. You’ll be spoilt for choice with an abundance of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars right on your doorstep. The world-famous Edinburgh Castle, and the tranquil Princes Street Gardens are a short walk away.

Occupying space over two floors, this tastefully designed apartment offers a spacious open-plan living area with double full-length windows overlooking Shandwick Place. The bright and airy lounge has two large, comfy sofas and features a stately dining table and chairs that seat four guests. You’ll find everything on hand to cook up a treat in the modern kitchen and the integrated appliances includes a dishwasher, fridge, freezer, oven/hob, microwave, and washer/dryer. Entertainment needs are well catered for too, with a smart TV and complimentary WiFi.

When you’ve had your fill of exploring the closes and cobbled streets, you can be assured of a good night’s sleep as both elegantly decorated bedrooms overlook the quieter, rear of the property. The master bedroom features a king-size bed and has its own contemporary en-suite shower room. The second bedroom has a double bed and plentiful storage. A slick family bathroom with bath and handheld shower finishes off this wonderful home from home.
