The Art House at The New Town


There’s good taste and beautifully furnished and then there’s The Art House in Edinburgh’s New Town. In my mind, this is interior decoration on a whole new level. I ADORE the furnishings here. That bed!! Those kitchen cupboards with the fabric on the inside! The Grand Piano! If you thought The Art House was a slightly pompous name for what essentially is a flat in Edinburgh then one look at the careful curation of this residence will write-off any prior judgment. It’s not the art on the walls that make it The Art House; it’s that the whole residence is a work of art. The placement of different objects, soft furnishings and lighting pulled together to create this impactful, decadent synthesis that is greater than the sum of its parts. It’s classic Georgian yes, but there are contemporary geometric bedspreads and artwork providing that beautiful balancing act. This is the kind of quality property that you can expect to find within the Edinburgh Address portfolio of managed apartments and houses – which the Art House falls under. AirBnB has its place in the world of course – but the big problem is that you can’t talk to someone with a vast knowledge of the city and a variety of properties – you are talking directly to the very biased owner. There’s such a huge advantage to be gained in talking to someone in the know – an insider! Anna at The Edinburgh Address manages 52 properties all over Edinburgh. What she and her team don’t know about the holiday property rental market in Edinburgh is really not worth knowing. Of course, this is Chic Scotland, so you can expect solid, immaculate and some really striking luxury properties within the collection. So if this property is not to your liking (em, are you crazy?), then I am more than optimistic she will have something else on her books to rock your world. When you call The Edinburgh Address, you can immediately feel reassured that they understand your requirements. It’s a fun company too – they just bought the coolest modern VW camper – she’s called Bonnie. You will LOVE Edinburgh. You will LOVE the New Town. You will LOVE the Art House. It’s all quite simple really. Book without hesitation or delay. This Georgian property is not adapted for wheelchair use.
