Property description

This beautiful, link-detached, house is a former care home, now in need of modernisation. While the exterior of the building has undergone a programme of works including improvements to the roof, chimney stacks and pointing, the interior remains a project. The property is configured over three floors and there is scope for the whole building to become a substantial family home. Alternatively, the garden level could remain as a self-contained two bedroom flat.

Immediately on entering the property you are struck by the scale of the proportions, the natural light and the period details. In addition, the westerly views across the Royal Botanic Gardens provide a the kind of tranquil, green outlook that is hard to find in a city centre.

The house could be configured in a number of ways but, with over 6000 sq ft of accommodation, there is potential for at least six bedrooms, combined with wonderful living and entertaining space. It is a rare opportunity for a property of this scale to come to the market in Inverleith, and one that provides a family with the scope create their perfect home, almost from scratch.

Outside, there is a large south west facing garden with a lawn, mature borders and trees, as well as a patio area for outside dining. There is direct access from here to the garage and parking area to the front of the house.
