Property Description

Full description

Kings Stables Cottage is a historical and unique one bedroom two storey detached house, with magnificent views of Edinburgh Castle, in the heart of the city.

The Georgian ‘B’ listed house was built in circa 1838 as a school house for the St Cuthbert’s Church. It is full of charm and character but still benefits from modern luxuries such as under floor heating throughout having been sympathetically restored in the early 1990’s under the supervision of an architect who specialises in Georgian architecture.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor, there is an entrance hallway, a double bedroom, a bathroom and a utility cupboard under the stairs. On the first floor, there is a well-proportioned sitting room/dining room and a bespoke kitchen. The materials used for the restoration add to the property’s unique status with marble flooring on the ground floor, reclaimed maple flooring in the sitting room, Canadian pine flooring in the kitchen and a Charles Jones Classic Kitchen of Edinburgh. Another particularly special feature, is the astragal sash and case windows with stunning views towards the Edinburgh Castle. Outside, there are gardens to the front and back of the property with a private driveway providing private parking for several cars.
