Property Description

Full description

31a Drummond Place is a unique property on one of Edinburgh’s most sought after residential addresses. The property is unique as it spans the lower ground floor of 31 and the garden level of 31 and 32 Drummond Place with a beautifully designed garden stretching 55ft x 75ft. Accessed from the lower ground floor, the upstairs level of the property has the master bedroom with en suite shower room and dressing room with an outlook towards the garden, as well as another larger double bedroom and a recently refurbished family bathroom with underfloor heating. There is a wine cellar and storage cupboard also on this level.

The original stone stairs with wooden balustrade lead down to the heart of the house, a stunningly finished kitchen which boasts an excellent finish including a large island with Venetian plaster work surface that has a breakfasting bar for 6 chairs. Around the edge of the kitchen there are solid wood work surfaces with integrated appliances including a Lacanche range cooker, electric five door Aga, Liebherr premium pull out fridge, Samsung fridge/freezer, Neff dishwasher, Insinkerator boiler tap, wine cooler and microwave. The kitchen opens up into the sitting room which has a wood burning stove, which leads to the Mozolowski & Murray conservatory with tri-folding doors and its delightful outlook onto the garden. Both the kitchen and the conservatory have direct access into the garden which was designed and landscaped by Twig Garden Design Ltd. There is a large dining room, with a corridor leading to two further double bedrooms, one with a en suite and infra-red sauna, a family bathroom, a WC, a storage cupboard and a large utility room housing the original stone cellar compartment. The property is wired with up-to-date technology including Sonos in the kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and main bathroom as well as a projector and screen that are neatly hidden in the dining room, special changing lighting and CAT 5 cabling throughout.

The garden is particularly special given its impressive size of 55 ft x 75 ft and the variety and number of species planted and wonderful features in different areas. The garden is bisected by an angular pond with stepping stones running through to a richly textured backdrop of green plants up to the summer house. It was planned and continues to be maintained by Jason Russell of Twig Garden Design Ltd. to introduce a dramatic jungle effect which will flourish at different times of the year. In the centre there is a hot tub with small trees concealing a wooden structure to afford privacy from the L shaped buildings around. At the far end there is an Amdega summer house and sunny sitting area. Next to the conservatory there is an area for barbecues and outdoor eating with space for table and chairs. At the end of the garden, there is a doorway leading through to Drummond Tennis Club and providing access to East Scotland Street Lane.

The property is also steeped in history as it was previously owned by Sir Compton McKenzie who wrote Whisky Galore and Monarch of the Glen.

Drummond Place enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city's Georgian New Town, one of Edinburgh's most desirable residential areas. The area enjoys all the advantages of central living having easy access to the city's main business and commercial centres. Princes Street, George Street, St. Andrew's Square and Broughton Street provide excellent shopping facilities with specialist shopping available in Multrees Walk, Broughton Street and Stockbridge. Pleasant walks can be taken along the nearby Water of Leith walkway, Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic Gardens. Furthermore, there is convenient road access to the west leading to the city bypass, Edinburgh International Airport and the central Scotland motorway network. Haymarket and Waverly railway stations are also within easy reach. There are excellent schools on the north side of the city in both the state and private sectors including Fettes College, The Edinburgh Academy, Stewarts Melville, Mary Erskines and St. Georges School for Girls. The property qualifies for access to the highly sought after Drummond Place private gardens.
