Property description

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

Resplendent red sandstone five-bedroom, five-bathroom Victorian house, arranged over three floors occupying a commanding position at the entrance to the exclusive Greenbank village, located to the south of Edinburgh city centre.

Originally built as the Commissionaire’s house, forming part of the original City Hospital buildings, this truly unique property has been thoughtfully re-imagined and returned to its intended status as a detached family home, it stands alone as the only property of this size and style in Greenbank village, and sets a precedent in terms of its elegant exterior and state of the art interior design specifications.

Beautifully presented, showcasing many bespoke features and an opulent palette of Farrow and Ball papers and paint throughout, a breathtaking principal bedroom suite with dressing room and cutting-edge bathrooms, as well as a spacious, contemporary kitchen/dining/living area with bi-folding doors leading out into landscaped gardens with separate hot tub and fire pit zones as well as a Garden room/ studio/gym.
