Property of the Day: Drummond Place, Edinburgh

A six-bedroom Georgian townhouse within walking distance of the Edinburgh Festivals

THE PROPERTY: This handsome townhouse is just minutes from the centre of Edinburgh, where the International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe are in full swing.

THE LOCATION: Based on a leafy garden square in New Town, the property is also just few minutes’ walk from the many shops and cafés on Princes Street and George Street.

THE INTERIOR: Full townhouses in such excellent condition are hard to come by in the city. This one on Drummond Place has managed to maintain its striking period features such as original cornicing, tiled floors, a sweeping stone and iron staircase and a beautiful domed skylight, and combine them with modern living requirements, such as a fully refurbished kitchen, a cinema-room and a gym. The house also comes with planning permission to add a new ‘sun-room’ extension to the west-facing patio garden with stairs leading from the kitchen.  

WHY WE LOVE IT: The master bedroom is spread over an entire floor with the bedroom running the whole width of the house. The room is then connected by double doors to a huge dressing-room and a newly fitted bathroom with a freestanding bath and luxurious rain shower.

BUY IT NOW:  £2,250,000 with Knight Frank.
