Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A penthouse apartment without rival in the Edinburgh market and a unique property within the historic New Town area of the city. Stunning, contemporary design is equally matched by the breath taking views. Direct, private lift access and off street parking further add to the appeal. EPC rating: D

The property is located at the westerly end of Queen Street Gardens on a quiet road with no through traffic. The orientation of the penthouse gives it exceptional views in every direction and the modern glass design allows the rooms to be flooded with natural light.

A private entrance leads to the lift which gives direct access to the penthouse. The main living and entertaining space is truly exceptional, with a contemporary kitchen, dining and sitting areas. From here, doors lead to the main terrace with views across the Forth Estuary as well as the Castle to the south. On the other side of the room there is access to a smaller west facing terrace, ideal for the evening sun.

The master bedroom suite enhances the sense of luxury that the property exudes. The bedroom is a wonderful size with access to east and west facing terraces, with the smaller west facing terrace featuring a hot tub. There is a dressing room and a smart en suite bathroom.

The guest bedroom benefits from a large en suite shower room as well as access to the main terrace. On the other side of the hall is the third double bedroom with a private terrace. This room is served by a beautifully appointed shower room. Off the main hall is a box room which is useful for storage but would also work well as a study. There is a small utility room as well as three store cupboards near the main entrance to the flat. In addition to the lift, there is access to the flat via a staircase.

Wemyss Place is one of the best addresses in Edinburgh's historic New Town and lies a short walk from the city centre and the sophisticated, and equally renowned, Stockbridge area. The New Town has some of the first and least spoilt Georgian architecture in Britain and continues to be one of the most popular residential areas in Edinburgh.

The area boasts an excellent choice of schools within easy reach including The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, St.George's School for Girls, The Mary Erskine School and Stewart's Melville College. The Georgian New Town is equally well-known for the quality of city centre living it offers, with a wonderful and varied choice of excellent local amenities that include art galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and bistros.
