25, 26 and 27 Drumsheugh Gardens form a paradigm of some of the finest domestic architecture in Edinburgh. Constructed in 1877 by John Lessels, these three stylish sandstone dwellings with their appearance of plain classical townhouses were, in fact, designed from the outset to be main door and common stair flats and for the last fifty plus years have been Category B listed. They command a tranquil but dominant position in Edinburgh's iconic West End, very much a location of choice, nowadays, due to the level of amenities on the door step and the business and retail districts being within such easy walking distances.
Sundial Properties undertook the exceptionally high-quality refurbishment of 25, 26 and 27 Drumsheugh Gardens between 2016 and 2019 and there are now seventeen luxurious, while ultimately comfortable, homes.
26/8, Drumsheugh Gardens is a one bedroom third floor apartment, reached from the parquet floored entrance hall either by the grand communal staircase, or a contemporary interpretation of a traditional cage lift. The apartment's entrance hall has an elegant wood floor that runs throughout and subtle decoration, in keeping with the other rooms, and a full height built-in cupboard at its far end. The large living room has a pair of windows with operable shutters and a further single smaller window - all have stunning panoramic views of the north of the city. The room has a fine traditional polished steel fire place with marble mantlepiece and contrasting hearth. The Biefbi Italian bespoke kitchen, with excellent storage capacity and down lit work surfaces, occupies the southern end of the living room and utilises Miele appliances and a Quooker Tap. There is a utility room adjacent to the kitchen. The spacious double bedroom has a window with operating shutters and a copious built-in wardrobe. The bathroom is naturally lit, via a roof light and has a three piece suite, by Villeroy & Boch, with both a hand held and rain head shower.
The apartment has gas fired central heating and sash and case windows. The development is factored. Residents permit parking is available on the street and there is access to Drumsheugh Gardens on payment of an annual fee.
Drumsheugh Gardens is in the heart of Edinburgh's prestigious West End, yet offers quiet seclusion. This fashionable area is both desirable and strategic due to the first class amenities that are all on the door step and with the business and retail districts within comfortable walking distance. A plethora of boutiques, restaurants, bars and stores are close-by, with a Waitrose on Comely Bank and a Sainsbury's Local on Shandwick Place. Leisure facilities are in abundance with the bustling West End host to a huge range of facilities. Princes Street Gardens has an outdoor auditorium that hosts attractions all year round, the Water of Leith offers superb walks and cycling, Drumsheugh Baths, Edinburgh Sports and Dean Tennis Clubs, the Dean and Modern Art Galleries are also nearby. Haymarket station and the soon to be extended Tram System are both a few minutes away. Edinburgh International Airport is easily accessible, as are the City By-pass and the M8, M9 and M90 motorways.
