Property highlight: B-listed Georgian townhouse on Torphichen Street, with a unique and stunning development opportunity

Closing date: Tuesday 24th January 2023 at 12 noon Forming part of a beautiful row of B-listed properties on Torphichen Street, this Georgian townhouse is a unique and stunning development opportunity with approved residential plans (planning ref: 21/06545/FUL) that include a spectacular roof terrace rarely found in this part of the city. Situated within the prestigious West End conservation area by the exciting new multi-million-pound Haymarket development, the exclusive property is enviably located in a high-amenity area with outstanding transport links just a stone’s throw away. Multiple bus and tram services are available across the city, including direct routes to Edinburgh International Airport, in addition to nearby Haymarket train station connecting you to Glasgow, London and the rest of the UK. The townhouse itself is arranged over three floors and will comprise two large reception rooms, a dining kitchen, four double bedrooms, and four bathrooms. It also comes with two private off-street parking spaces to the rear. The private front door at ground-floor level opens into an entrance vestibule, flowing through to a hallway which will accommodate a cloak cupboard and an accessible shower room. Leading off the hall to the left will be an exceptionally bright and spacious living room, offering a wealth of floorspace for furniture and showcasing wonderful period features. Accessed from the living room and the hall will be a large dining kitchen, with plenty of space for a choice of cabinetry and appliances, as well as a central island and a seated dining area. The kitchen will also accommodate a larder cupboard. Astaircase winds up to the first floor, where you will find a second reception room and the principal bedroom. The reception room spans the entire width of the property and is illuminated by a trio of near full-height, recessed sash-and-case windows with working shutters. The room is heightened by a fireplace, ornate cornicing and plasterwork, and a ceiling rose. The principal bedroom will be accessed from here via double doors and separately from the landing. The bedroom will occupy a generous footprint and will be supplemented by an en-suite bathroom. Completing the first floor is a convenient laundry room. On the second floor, a landing with a magnificent cupola affords access to the remainingthree bedrooms and a shower room. The bedrooms will all offer plenty of space for furniture and the front-facing two will feature dormer windows, whilst the remaining bedroom will be accompanied by an en-suite shower room. There will also be a large store on this floor, accessed from two of the bedrooms and the landing. The landing will also afford access to the roof terrace, which will be a magnificent outdoor space that is private to the property and a unique feature in the capital, providing an elevated vantage point (that is not overlooked) from which to admire the City of Edinburgh. The property will also be accompanied by two private off-street parking spaces to the rear. For efficiency, all of the windows have been reconditioned and had the Ventrolla brush system added. Furthermore, there are working window shutters in the main principal rooms: in the ground front, first front, and first rear accommodation.
