A rare opportunity to acquire one of the handful of full, end-of-terrace Georgian townhouses with a south facing garden, modern kitchen extension and generously wide garage in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site. This four-storey, six-bedroom family house sits in a prime location on Northumberland Street, with a south facing garden, screened in summer by mature trees for privacy. The house has been extensively renovated and redecorated in recent years, retaining Georgian colours and sensibilities throughout, with the exception of the modern kitchen with Miele and Subzero appliances, underfloor heating and a dining extension, which benefits from bi-fold doors for inside/outside living in the warmer months. The rest of the property features original details throughout, including exquisite cornicing, working shutters, dados, cupola, fanlight and stone flooring in the entrance hall. The house benefits from access to the beautiful Queen Street gardens for a modest annual fee.

Recent renovations include a new slate roof in 2021, with rebuilt chimney stack, guttering, gable wall pointing, cupola reglazing, some downpipes replaced, and three chimney flues relined to open period fireplaces. A new boiler was fitted in 2023.

This A-listed house was built in 1813 and has a rich and well-documented history with many notable prior residents, including Sir Douglas Seton-Steuart, the last Hereditary Armour-Bearer and Squire of the Royal Body in Scotland.

Northumberland Street is located in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town and is a fine example of the city's renowned Georgian architecture. The street was developed between 1807 and 1819 to provide high quality houses close to the centre of Edinburgh, with George Street, Princes Street and cosmopolitan Stockbridge, with its range of bars and restaurants, specialist shops and bustling artisan Sunday Market, all situated within comfortable walking distance. Beyond Stockbridge are the Royal Botanic Gardens and Inverleith Park. The property is within walking distance of the recently completed St James Quarter shopping centre, which has an Everyman Cinema and extensive shopping and dining options. Waverley Station and the tram line to the airport are within easy walking distance, as is The Edinburgh Playhouse, Harvey Nichols and Multrees Walk. Many of Edinburgh's well known private schools are close by including Edinburgh Academy, St Georges School for Girls, Mary Erskine and Fettes College. There is a choice of sports clubs, libraries and swimming pools nearby and there is west bound access to Scotland's central motorway network, the City Bypass and Edinburgh's International Airport.
