Property description

Tenure: Please confirm if this is a freehold property with Rettie & Co

Viewed as one of the most desirable and prestigious residential addresses in Edinburgh, Ann Street is a row of elegantly proportioned Georgian townhouses designed by renowned portrait artist Henry Raeburn and named after his wife.

Seen as an early work of the prominent architect James Milne, Ann Street is a fine example of early 19th century classical architecture located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic New Town, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

40 Ann Street is an exceptional A-listed townhouse packed with period character and a wealth of original features including Georgian sash and case windows with working shutters, flagstone flooring, ornate cornice work and decorative fireplaces.

The handsome five-bedroom sandstone property benefits from an extension to the top floor of the original building. The house now spans four floors, so it is today, one of the larger properties on the picturesque, cobbled street.
The well-presented accommodation features an attractive mix of classic interiors and chic contemporary décor that is stylish and timeless.

Planning permission and listed building consents are already in place which will allow the new owners the option to install a large kitchen in the lower ground floor should they so wish. Furthermore, the exterior of the property has recently been sympathetically renovated to the highest standard with the addition of a new lead roof and the overhauling of all the exterior stonework and guttering.

The property sits on the doorstep of Stockbridge with its vibrant village atmosphere and excellent local amenities, Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens.
It is also just only a short walk to all the attractions in Edinburgh’s city centre and lies within easy reach of the city’s major transport links.
