96 Inverleith Place is a spacious "C" Listed late Victorian villa of traditional sandstone construction under a pitched roof. It provides exceptional views in one of Edinburgh's most sought after residential streets. The property offers comfortable and flexible family accommodation extending to 4347 sq ft with the additional benefit of secure off-street parking, a double garage and private gardens to the front and rear. In January 2010 the current occupiers secured Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent to replace the existing garage with a triple garage and games room above, as well as to create a Conservatory to the rear of the building. The details of the application can be viewed at using the reference number 09/02744/FUL.

Internally the property retains a number of fine features of the period including the superb timber staircase with spacious landings, decorative cornice work, stripped flooring, archways, timber sash and case windows and restored fireplaces. From the upper floors there are impressive views over Inverleith Park towards Edinburgh Castle to the south and open views over playing field to the Firth of Forth to the north.

96 Inverleith Place is located in the popular residential area of Inverleith, which is regarded as one of the most sought after residential locations in the city. The property is situated near to Inverleith Park, The Royal Botanical Gardens and to the 'village' of Stockbridge, which offers an excellent array of shops, restaurants, cafes, a library and swimming baths. The property is also extremely well-located for many schools including Fettes College, The Edinburgh Academy, Stewarts Melville and St George's School. There is convenient road access to the west leading to the City Bypass, Edinburgh Airport and the central Scotland motorway network. Waverley train station is approximately 2 miles distant.

96 Inverleith Place is approached via a gated driveway which provides parking for several vehicles and leads to the double garage to the rear of the property. There are well-maintained gardens to the front and rear with a spacious area of lawn as well as a number of mature trees and a range of shrubs and flowering plants. The privacy of the property is protected to the front by the presence of a high hedge and to the side and rear by high stone walls. There is an extensive cellar below the property which is ideal for storage and also houses the central heating boiler.
