Tenure: Freehold

Generously proportioned and beautifully presented original double upper


Situated in the heart of Edinburgh's historic New Town, a World
Heritage Site, London Street joins Broughton Street and Drummond Place, a handsome garden bordered on all four sides by impressive Georgian architecture. The shops of the city centre, including Harvey Nichols, John Lewis and the boutique shops of George Street are within easy walking distance and other local amenities include Tesco at Canonmills, the Playhouse Theatre and a number of excellent art galleries and museums. The popular bars and bistros of both Broughton Street and George Street are close at hand. The property also has good access to Waverley train station, the Tram terminus and the road network to both the east and west.


16 London Street is a substantial, original double upper flat set within an impressive Georgian building. Accessed via a stair shared with one other property and entered on the second floor, the flat opens to a stunning entrance hall providing a wonderfully bright central reception area from where the principal reception and living space radiates and the impressive stone stair rises to the upper floor. There is a wealth of period features throughout the property including a bow ended drawing room, fine cornice work, dado panelling, original stone stair case and flag stones in the kitchen. The generously proportioned rooms on the lower floor offer flexible, comfortable and light accommodation currently in use as a drawing room, sitting room and study, but with potential for 2 additional bedrooms. This wonderful reception space is complemented by three sizeable bedrooms on the upper floor. The master bedroom has magnificent views to the north and an en suite
shower room while a luxury family bathroom services the remaining two double bedrooms. The property benefits from north and south facing aspects allowing for plenty of natural light throughout the day, while offering spectacular northerly views over Edinburgh to the hills of Fife.

Fixtures & Fittings
The mirror and chandelier in the sitting room and the tumble drier are specifically excluded from the sale. Light fittings, floor coverings and curtains are included.

The property is Category B listed and lies within the New Town Conservation Area.
