Danube Street lies within the original Raeburn Estate, part of the overall design of the northern New Town by James Milne, less than one mile from Princes Street. The Stockbridge area has a cosmopolitan, village atmosphere with an excellent range of specialist food shops and a good choice of bistros, pubs and restaurants as well as its own library, swimming bath and primary schools. There are also supermarkets at Comely Bank, Craigleith and Broughton. There are pleasant riverside walks along the Water of Leith and access, by subscription, to the lovely Dean Gardens; while the open spaces of Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic Garden are also nearby. The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, St George's, Mary Erskine and Stewart's Melville schools are all handily located on this side of the city.
9 Danube Street is a handsome Georgian townhouse set on one of the New Town's finest crescents. It has elegant proportions and is set over the lower ground, ground and first floors. The house retains many fine features and of particular note is the exquisite plaster work in the reception hall, cupola, drawing room, library and bedrooms. It is believed that this property was owned originally by the New Town's Master Plasterer, who created the exceptional level of detailing so evidently still on display.
The main door opens to the entrance vestibule with original flagstone flooring and wonderful plasterwork, and from here timber and glazed double do ors, with a beautiful fanlight above, open to the welcoming reception hall from where the ground floor accommodation radiates and the handsome stone staircase rises to the upper floor. To the front of the house is the library/sitting room while to the rear lies the master bedroom with en suite bathroom. On the upper floor, the particularly fine drawing room with three west facing sash and cord windows is situated at the front of the house, while there are also two further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a pantry on this floor. The breakfasting kitchen, with utility room and cloak room off, is on the lower ground floor and has access to the rear garden. A Butler's pantry links the kitchen to the dining room set to the front of the house while there is also an additional bedroom also at the front. There is a further bathroom as well as excellent storage on this floor.
There is a delightful and well maintained garden to the rear of the property with a patio and area of lawn while to the front of the house there is a basement patio with three under pavement cellars, one of which has been fitted out as a wine cellar.
The property is Category A Listed and lies within the New Town Conservation Area.
