Immaculately presented and fully restored family home in one of Edinburgh's most sought after location, with an iconic view of the Edinburgh skyline


Commanding a striking south facing position, 13 Kinnear Road offers the rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional six-bedroomed, semi-detached family home situated peacefully in one of Edinburgh’s most coveted residential addresses. This red sandstone B listed property was originally constructed as Jeffery House, an Edinburgh Academy boarding house in 1899. The property has been meticulously refurbished by the prestigious Lorn Macneal Architects, and has been replumbed, rewired and re-roofed. Arranged over three levels, the property retains original features in its sash and case windows, carved timber balustrade with newel-posts, wrought iron balcony, and plasterwork paying homage to the property’s original purpose in the entrance vestibule.

Presented to the market in immaculate condition, this impeccable family home is second to none and offers the epitome of Edinburgh living, effortlessly blending period features with modern interior. The property boasts a principal bedroom suite with walk in dressing room and luxury en suite, five further generously sized double bedrooms, a top-quality dining kitchen offering high specification integrated appliances, a magnificent south facing first floor drawing room benefiting from spectacular views over Edinburgh’s skyline and an interconnecting cinema room, equipped with a 115-inch screen with cinema hardware.

Externally, the property benefits from an abundance of private outdoor space comprising a driveway with off-road parking for three vehicles and EV charging point, a front garden and enclosed landscaped rear garden largely laid to lawn, edged with leafy shrubbery and well planted floral border and box hedge. There is a patio immediately to the rear of the house and a large garden store in addition. Set back from the peaceful residential street, the property is approached through Art Nouveau wrought iron gateposts to its private driveway and enclosed front garden, screened by well-kept leafy shrubbery.


Kinnear Road is widely considered to be one of Edinburgh’s finest addresses and is situated in the leafy Inverleith Conservation Area just over a mile north of the city centre. The property sits with a south-facing aspect in the middle of a tranquil cul-de-sac within easy walking distance of all the local amenities in vibrant Stockbridge.

The location is characterised by its proximity to many green spaces with the Royal Botanic Garden, one of the world’s finest and largest botanical gardens, on the doorstep. Adjacent to the ‘Botanics’ is Inverleith Park, a wonderful 54-acre recreational park with a large expanse of grass parkland, tree-lined paths, a boating pond, children’s play park, public tennis courts, a bowling green and sports fields.

There are also plenty of leisure and recreational activities on offer in the locality including The Grange Cricket, Tennis and Squash Club, Westwoods Health Club, The Village Gym and the Victorian-built Glenogle Swimming Baths & Leisure Club.

The property is just a few hundred metres away from Stockbridge with its bustling village atmosphere, specialist independent shops, delis, cafes, restaurants, bars and a weekly Sunday food market. There are also several supermarkets - Morrisons and Waitrose – within a mile or so and there is a M&S and Sainsbury’s at the Craigleith Retail Park, just a short drive away.

The property sits within the school catchment area for the highly regarded Flora Stevenson’s Primary School as well as Broughton High School. There are plenty of private schools available locally including Fettes College, The Edinburgh Academy, Erskine Stewart’s Melville Schools (ESMS) and St George’s School for Girls.

The property is situated just over a mile from the city’s main financial business and entertainment districts as well as the recently opened St James Quarter, an upmarket mix-used entertainment and shopping complex. It lies within easy reach of Haymarket and Waverley stations and the excellent tram and bus links to Edinburgh International Airport.
