5 Walker Street is a substantial 5-bedroom West End townhouse flat that has been wonderfully renovated to a very high standard, creating an immaculate home that any family could move straight in to and immediately start enjoying.

The townhouse at 5 Walker Street is arranged over three floors and has been thoughtfully renovated to offer an excellent blend of accommodation, services and flexibility to meet modern day family requirements.

Upon entering the property through the attractive front door and stepped entrance, it is immediately apparent from the large entrance vestibule that this house has been finished to a high standard and is extremely welcoming. The spacious reception hall is flooded with natural light and has a wealth of period features including a wrought iron and stone staircase, ornate cornice work and a grand cupola. To the front of the ground floor is a good sized reception room, with period feature fireplace, currently setup as a dining room. The room also features a truly beautiful ceiling and cornice plaster work along with sash and case windows and working shutters which can be found throughout the house. To the rear is the exceptional family kitchen with a stunning bow wall feature. The newly fitted kitchen has been cleverly designed to provide all the modern services expected whilst maintaining a very sociable feel to the room. The central island with its marble surface, in-built sink, five ring gas burner and four ring induction hob creates a clean and slick appearance to the kitchen, which blends seamlessly with the period features such as the intricate cornicing and the marble fireplace. The utility room with washing machine is located just off the kitchen and the nearby separate cloakroom with WC completes the ground floor accommodation.

The charming stone stair leads to the first floor landing where the entrance to the magnificent drawing room can be found. This is truly a remarkable room with three full length sash and case windows with working shutters and the original iron balcony overlooking Walker Street, this is the perfect space for entertaining or simply relaxing and enjoying the south west orientated natural light flooding in. Also on this floor is an elegantly proportioned master bedroom with a generous cupboard and luxurious en suite bathroom. Continuing to the second floor landing, which is naturally lit by the grand cupola, there is access to four further double bedrooms, two with en suites.

Walker Street is situated within a few minutes' walk of the retail and commercial city centre in Princes Street, George Street and Lothian Road, and also has easy access to Haymarket Station. Edinburgh International Airport is easily accessible as is the city bypass, the M8, M9 and M90 motorways.
