5 Edward Street is a delightful Georgian townhouse, situated in an extremely convenient location on a small road just off the famous Great Pulteney Street. Not having been available on the open market for around 100 years, the house is known as 'The Duchy'. For many years the house was owned by HRH Prince Charles, and was the head quarters of The Duchy of Cornwall Estate's Eastern District offices. Bought by the present owner from HRH Prince Charles in 1999 and carefully returned to a private residence, the Duchy offers versatile accommodation over five floors. Beautifully presented and with much of the original period detail remaining, the house combines comfortable living space with elegant proportions and the most convenient of locations. To the rear, leading from the kitchen through a pair of French doors is a most charming walled, courtyard garden. Secluded, South East facing and beautifully landscaped, it is the perfect space to enjoy the sunshine and for outdoor entertaining.
