Elegant 4 storey Georgian townhouse in a much sought after location


29 Howard Place is well positioned within a prime residential district about 1 mile north of Princes Street backing onto the Warriston playing fields and opposite the east gate for the Royal Botanic Garden.

The property is within convenient distance of all the amenities of the city centre while there are good local shops in Goldenacre. Stockbridge is within walking distance providing a range of independent shops, delicatessens, bars and restaurants as well as a choice of supermarkets.

This is a particularly leafy part of the city with the delightful Royal Botanic Garden and Inverleith Park both nearby.

The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College, St George's and Erskine Stewart's Melville Schools are all on this side of the city while Waverley and Haymarket train stations, the Tram terminus and the financial district are all within easy reach.

There is convenient road access westwards towards the city bypass and the central Scotland motorway network.


29 Howard Place is a well presented and beautifully proportioned four storey mid terraced Georgian townhouse. The property offers spacious, comfortable and flexible accommodation set over lower ground, ground, first and second floors and with both east and west facing aspects there is an abundance of natural light, enhanced by the cupola above the stair. The property was refurbished by the late owners and includes a lift, servicing the lower ground, ground and first floors. The property successfully retains exceptional period detail with a range of original features including marble mantelpieces, astragal windows, working shutters and decorative cornicing. In its current arrangement, there are five double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room, three elegant reception rooms and a large dining kitchen with AGA and sitting area.

The house is set well back from the road and is approached by a gated stone path which leads to the front door. A further set of steps leads down to the basement area where there is direct access to the lower ground floor and to 2 cellars. There is also an easily maintained front garden, while to the rear of the house there is a generous east facing garden which has been landscaped in recent times. There are a variety of mature plants and shrubs, with stone terraces leading to the back of the garden where there is a gate onto Warriston Playing Fields. There is also a stone-built pond.

Fixtures & Fittings
All fitted floor coverings, curtains, light fittings and white goods are included in the sale.

The property is Category A listed and lies within the Inverleith Conservation Area.
