The subject of sale forms an impressive “B” listed, second floor two public and four bedroom flat, part of a distinguished stone built Georgian building in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town.  This highly desirable and spacious property has retained many fine period features which include ornate decorative cornice work, traditional fireplaces, operational shutters and natural wood floors and doors.  Of particular note is the under street cellar located to the front of the property and the tranquil private area of the walled garden to the rear with its lovely leafy views.  Full gas central heating has been installed.


Properties such as Scotland Street are rarely brought to the open market and this most delightful property has been owned by the same family for over 60 years and they are remaining close by in the New Town.  The property now affords a great opportunity for those seeking a home of character with lots of potential.  The light bright rooms have high ceilings and an east/west aspect which allows lots of natural light to flood through.  To the front the views are over towards George V Park and to the rear there is a leafy aspect over the private gardens towards Broughton St Marys Parish Church and its historic spire.   

The elegant accommodation comprises:  Reception hall, drawing room, sitting room, kitchen with breakfasting area, principal double bedroom with en-suite facilities, three further bedrooms and family bathroom and separate w.c..  Under street cellar to the front of the building and private area of garden located to the rear. 


Scotland Street is situated in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic New Town, a World Heritage Site, and is surrounded by impressive examples of fine Georgian architecture.  The property has all the benefits of city centre living with the main shopping and commercial areas of Princes Street and George Street nearby, yet the location retains a charming ambiance being in close proximity to Stockbridge, Inverleith  and Broughton Street where they have an eclectic range of specialised shops, bistros and restaurants.  The new St James’ Quarter is close-by and has a prestigious selection of high street retailers, restaurants and John Lewis.  The Omni Centre is located at the top of Leith Walk on Picardy Place and has a Nuffield Health Gym and a multi-screen Cinema.  Drummond Tennis Club is quietly tucked away behind Scotland Street and is a real hub of activity, which is well used by local residents.   Scotland Street is not only a prime location, it is also featured in the novels written by Alexander McCall Smith “44 Scotland Street” following the lives of the residents in this charming setting.


Some of Edinburgh’s highly regarded private schools which include The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, Erskine Stewart’s Melville Schools and St George’s School for Girls are close within easy reach as well as the Gaelic Primary School, Bun-sgoil Taobh na Pairce on Bonnington Road.  The property is also within the catchment for good primary and secondary schools which include Broughton Primary School, St Mary’s RC Primary School, St Thomas of Aquin’s High School and Drummond Community High School. The lovely open green spaces of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Inverleith Park, George V Park and the Water of Leith Walkway are close-by and offer many pleasant walks and recreational pursuits.
