Palmerston Place is a substantial Victorian Edinburgh Townhouse, retaining the grandeur of the period through vast living spaces and the elaborate exterior and internal detailing that have been immaculately maintained. With a range of intricate coving, cornice, plasterwork and ironwork, in addition to shuttered windows, marble mantlepieces and stone stairs. The property, designed by Scots Baronial architects John Dick Peddie and Charles G.H. Kinnear, is situated in the heart of the desirable West End, forming part of a World Heritage Site and enjoying commanding views of St. Mary’s Cathedral and the city skyline.

The residence is currently arranged as a home and a self-contained flat, offering versatile spaces over its light-filled four-storey floorplan. The grand entrance vestibule opens to a spacious reception hall with a cloakroom, utility room and stairways to the lower and upper floors. From here is the capacious 26 ft. formal bay-windowed dining room linking to the kitchen/breakfast room via a butler’s pantry. The space comprises a range of cabinetry and worksurfaces, with a large central island with inset hob and sinks. On the mezzanine level is a bedroom, whilst above the dining room on the second floor is an equally sized and tasteful drawing room with feature fireplace, along with a study, store, family bathroom and a bedroom. On the third floor is a study/bedroom, an additional bedroom with an en suite shower room and a striking principal suite with walk-in wardrobe and luxury en suite bathroom.

The lower ground level can either be used as further linked space for the main house or as a self-contained apartment. It comprises a central hallway opening to a front-facing family room with feature fireplace and leading to a well-appointed kitchen/breakfast room opening to the garden. Completing the floor are two well-proportioned bedrooms well-served by an en suite bathroom and a shower room.

A front courtyard can provide a separate access to the lower-ground level, as well as a trio of dry-lined under-pavement cellars. The attractive landscaped south-west facing gardens enjoy a stone sun terrace followed by steps to a lush lawned private garden surrounded by various shrubs and herbaceous planting.

The large garage is on Palmerston Place Lane which is understood to be one of Edinburgh’s last remaining square mews. It benefits from an electric car charging point along with resident’s permit parking.

Edinburgh's prestigious West End enjoys easy access to the retail and commercial city centre in Princes Street, George Street and Lothian Road, along with Haymarket Train Station and the tram link.
