One of the finest historic buildings in Edinburgh, Peffermill House is a beautifully restored tower house, built in 1636, retaining its L-plan design and situated in 3 ½ acres of secluded grounds close to the city centre.

Peffermill House is truly unique with over 6000 sqft of flexible, modern living entertaining and bedroom space, lending itself the opportunity to be utilised as a manageable family home, or multi-generational living. Arranged over four levels, the property retains an extraordinary sense of privacy whilst showcasing original period features throughout the accommodation, effortlessly blending with modern interior, through its sympathetic refurbishments, accessed via wonderful turnpike stone staircase.

This magnificent 17th century house is an extremely rare find with exceptional historical significance, offering spacious accommodation comprising seven double bedrooms, three kitchens, four receptions, six bathrooms as well as an abundance of leafy greenery in its private surrounding gardens and driveway.

The current owners have recently instructed a structural survey and carried out comprehensive conservation renovation works to the external structure of the house, including the roof, soffits, guttering, window panes and stonework. The entire house was re-rendered with traditional lime mortar.

The property is well served by an array of excellent local amenities in nearby Cameron Toll, as well as being within a short distance of the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. In addition, the property is enviably located within close proximity to several well-regarded schools.
