Property description

Built in 1916, the last of a row of four houses designed by John Jerden and generally considered to be his best. This is one of Colinton’s finest houses.  Benarty House enjoys a corner plot and benefits from an extremely quiet location with a well maintained and zoned, wrap around garden and driveway.

The property has multiple aspects with all the principal rooms facing south, overlooking the mature gardens and commanding magnificent views of the Pentland Hills.  The interiors retain a wealth of period features, worthy of the property’s listing and historic significance.

With an unusually practical flow of rooms for a property of this period, the current owners have made this their family home for nearly 50 years.  The opportunity to purchase a house of this calibre is very rare.

Benarty House is Grade B listed.
