9 West Castle Road is an exceptional and beautifully presented detached Victorian villa boasting one of the city’s most coveted residential addresses located in the Merchiston Conservation Area. The house comprises an impressive and substantial 5/6-bedroom period villa with landscaped gardens, garaging, and off-street parking. The property retains many fine period details and is presented in excellent condition throughout.

The substantial family house offers well-proportioned accommodation arranged over two floors including a self-contained two-bedroom flat. The current owners have modernised and refurbished the handsome property whilst respecting the period features such as the ornate cornicework, working shutters and original fireplaces and have created contemporary-styled living spaces ideally suited for modern family living.

West Castle Road is situated in the Merchiston Conservation Area, less than two miles from Edinburgh’s financial, business and shopping district and many of the city’s UNESCO-listed historical attractions. It is well placed within walking distance of the picturesque Meadows, Bruntsfield Links, and the cosmopolitan areas of Bruntsfield and Morningside. The area is served by a wealth of excellent amenities on its doorstep including vibrant bars, renowned restaurants as well as high-end independent and artisan retailers.

The property is conveniently located for some of Edinburgh’s best private schools with George Watson’s College and The Edinburgh Rudolph Steiner School within walking distance. The Edinburgh College of Art, Edinburgh University and Napier University are also within easy reach by foot. West Castle Road is conveniently placed to access the city’s efficient bus routes, Haymarket Station, The City Bypass, Edinburgh International Airport and Central Scotland’s motorway network.
