We are delighted to present to the market Mingalar Guest House, which until recently was being operated as a fully managed guest house and has traded successfully for many years. Originally built in the 19th century, Mingalar Guest House is a late Georgian Townhouse located in the far corner of the famous New Town in Edinburgh city centre. It offers free Wi-Fi access and free parking on-site and the property is suitable for potential redevelopment into residential accommodation.
Externally the front of the property sits straight to the street, to the rear, you will find a garden area, which is laid to hard standing and mature borders. To the rear of the gardens, there is off-street parking for two cars with access from a private lane.
Internally, the property is a traditionally built Georgian Terraced townhouse set over three levels. The building itself has been well maintained by the current owners, with the main entrance from the front that leads into the spacious reception hallway, which in turn gives access to all accommodation. On entering from the front, you are immediately welcomed into a traditional reception hallway with a stairway leading to all areas private and public.
On the ground floor of the property, you will find letting rooms 5, 6 and 7 along with a WC. Room 8 could be used for staff or as a small sitting room. As a residential house, Room 6 with its ornate ceiling and cornice would make a beautiful sitting or dining room
On the garden level, you will find the guest breakfast room. The breakfast room is well presented with laminate flooring and benefits from access via French doors to the rear garden area. Located off the dining room, there is a small kitchen, with larder and preparation area for cooking of guests’ breakfast, all of which could be converted to make a splendid family kitchen/dining area. Adjacent to the breakfast room is an office. Also located on the garden level are two en-suite double letting bedrooms, laundry and linen room which has a shower.
The 1st floor is accessed from a period feature staircase off the reception hallway. On the 1st floor, you will find letting rooms 1, 2 and 4. In addition, there is a small guest kitchenette.
Room 2 would be the traditional drawing room of past times, an elegant L-shaped room with the original decorative cornice intact.
There are 8 letting bedrooms, all of which have en-suite facilities, with the letting rooms set over the three floors of the property. All of the letting rooms are presented to a good modern standard and benefit from TVs with free view, hospitality trays and fridges. Mingalar will make a fine 5/6-bedroomed residence with two elegant public rooms and private parking, a very valuable commodity in Edinburgh city centre
As expected with a property the style and size of Mingalar, there are ample service areas and excellent storage facilities, including outhouse to the rear of the property within the courtyard area.Commercial information: The property has all mains services and is held on the Scottish equivalent of Freehold tenure. The business trades with the benefit of a full Licence and conforms to all fire regulations. Trading figures and accounts are available on request. The current owner does not live in the property and as such utilizes all of the rooms as letting accommodation.
