Property description

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


Sitting on a quarter of an acre plot, the handsome detached Edwardian villa, built in 1907, is located on a leafy residential road in the highly desirable city centre suburb of Newington.
Spanning three floors, the seven-bedroom property harmoniously blends a wealth of original period features: high ceilings, original fireplaces, stained glass windows and ornate ceiling cornicing – alongside stylish contemporary interiors and high specification fixtures and fittings.
The current owners have extensively and sensitively modernised, reconfigured and refurbished the property respecting the period features but also creating modern family living spaces. The spectacular open plan kitchen-living- dining room that opens out into the wonderful garden is of particular design note.
Located in the city’s South Side and close to both University of Edinburgh King’s Buildings and The Royal Infirmary, the property lies less than three miles from the city centre and is well connected by public transport. Newington enjoys a wide choice of local amenities and is within easy reach of several excellent schools and wonderful walking trails within Holyrood Park, The Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Nature Reserve.
