An opportunity has arisen to acquire this delightful town house situated within Edinburgh's World Heritage Listed New Town and with the added attraction of a charming enclosed mature and colourful garden to the rear. The property formerly consisted of a coach house and stable and dates from the early 19th century and has been sensitively modernised to a very high standard.
The house, which has a wealth of features throughout, is only a short walk from Princes Street and George Street where there can be found a wide range of shopping outlets and boutiques, financial institutions and banks, excellent restaurants and bars, health clubs and galleries and the house is also within easy reach of the Royal Botanic Garden, the Water of Leith and Inverleith Park. For local shopping facilities there are many shops providing day-to-day requirements in Broughton Street and Stockbridge, with a Tesco Superstore at Canonmills and Waitrose at Comely Bank.
The Edinburgh tram system terminates in nearby York Place with a route through the city centre to Edinburgh Airport. Many buses also serve this area and Waverley Station is only a short distance away with a train service connecting with all parts of Great Britain. There is schooling within the area at nursery, primary and secondary level, and if desired, access to Queen Street Gardens can be obtained on application. Residents' parking within the area is available with parking permits from Edinburgh Council.
This handsome and unique town house set over two floors has been modernised with attention to detail and the accommodation comprises a welcoming entrance with steps leading to the elegant dining room overlooking the garden and the splendid family fitted kitchen. On the lower area there is a double bedroom and a shower room and an astragalled door leads into the private garden. A curving wooden staircase with carved banisters leads to the open plan and impressive lounge which is well lit with velux and astragalled windows and, on this level, there are two further double bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a family bathroom with three-piece suite completes the accommodation. Heating is provided by a gas central heating boiler which is serviced annually and the astragalled windows and fan light over the rear door to the garden add to the charm of the property.
The enclosed garden to the rear is laid out with a lawn and surrounding shrubs and bushes offering colour and interest at all times of the year.
To appreciate the excellent location of this property and the features which are outstanding and create a charming atmosphere in this lovely family home, early viewing is recommended.
