5 Wellington Place
Wellington Place is a truly unique property. The town house was originally
designed for a wealthy merchant because of its proximity to the old trading centre of Leith docks and retains a wealth of original features: extravagant plasterwork , marble fireplaces, etched glass windows and original shutters on all windows.
A stunning bow-ended master bedroom which would most likely have been the original dining-room, as suggested by the marble fireplace and etched glass windows is a relaxing place to spend time after a day sightseeing in the historical city. (The lounge comes fully equipped with the latest audio/televisual technology full HD picture quality and DVD player. 40' Sony, flat screen TV).
The original features have been combined with the open-plan style and contemporary features of 21st-century living to provide a calm and relaxing environment. The modern open plan kitchen and dining area have all the appliances one would expect from a state of the art kitchen while retaining the original grand period features of the room.
A stay at this apartment is highly recommended to experience a world where old meets new.
