A prime place in the New Town
79/1 Great King Street is located in the heart of the New Town, just a short walk into the city centre or to Stockbridge, and it is a fine example of a Georgian B listed building with its original period features including cornicing, panelled windows and working shutters.
The substantial property, spread over two floors, has been maintained to a high standard with attractive sanded and polished floorboards and muted interior decor. There are original marble fireplaces in both the ground floor bedroom and the sitting room.
To enter the home, steps lead down to the lower ground floor patio with its five large cellars, and where the main floor leads into a hallway. The elegant dining room has a marble fireplace, stripped floorboards and traditional Georgian windows with shutters. Across from the dining room is the spacious and bright kitchen with large windows and a door to access the private patio and communal garden. There is plentiful worktop space and cupboards, with space for a dining table.
Also on this lower ground floor are two bedrooms, one of which looks out onto the back garden, a shower room, a bathroom and a large store cupboard.
Steps lead up to the ground floor hall, with access to the master bedroom with its double windows and marble fireplace, the large sitting room with balcony overlooking the garden, a fourth bedroom and a shower room. The property has gas central heating and there is zoned permit parking.
Great King street is one of Edinburgh’s finest streets, in the heart of Edinburgh’s Classical Georgian New Town. It benefits from all the rewards of city centre living with the city’s galleries, museums and theatres within easy reach. The financial district and West End are only a short walk away and the many boutiques, shops and restaurants of George Street and Princes Street are also close at hand. The independent shops and cafes of Stockbridge are a few moments away and a walk along the Water of Leith leads to the Dean Gallery and the Scottish Museum of Modern Art. The open spaces of Inverleith Park and the Botanical Gardens are also nearby. Waverley Station is within easy reach for commuters and Queensferry Road provides good links to the M8, M9, Forth Road Bridge and Edinburgh International Airport.
