Currently under redevelopment, this property occupies the principal part of a grand Georgian townhouse. The house is configured over four floors and it is topped by a large private roof terrace, the likes of which are rarely seen within the New Town market.
The house is being redeveloped in a sympathetic manner that beautifully combines stunning contemporary interior design with the classic Georgian architectural features. Incredible living space is being provided by a large open plan kitchen/dining room and a separate reception room on the ground floor. In addition there is a fabulous full width drawing room occupying the front of the first floor. As well as these traditional public rooms, the developer has cleverly designed a large informal entertaining space on the top floor which connects directly to the roof terrace. This creates a unique and exceptional entertaining space that is beyond anything that has been seen in the Edinburgh New Town market before.
On the first floor is an impressive master bedroom suite with a grand bedroom and en-suite bathroom. In addition, there are four further double bedrooms and three bathrooms.
This is a truly exceptional city centre home that is being refurbished to the highest standard. While being a contemporary family home, it also has the benefit of the glorious Georgian proportions all topped off with a roof terrace offering 360° views of the city skyline and the Forth Estuary. In addition to the terrace, the house is directly opposite the stunning Queen Street Gardens which can be accessed for a small annual fee. This property breaks the mould for the Edinburgh market and sets new standards others will strive to live up to.
Abercromby Place is one of Edinburgh's most revered crescents and is located within the heart of the historic New Town district. It 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 the most popular residential area in Edinburgh.
Abercromby Place is within easy walking distance of the main shopping and commercial areas of the city. George Street and Princes Street are only a couple of blocks to the south and the new St James' Centre will be within a 10 minute walk. Currently under construction, this will boast the city's prime retail and leisure offerings. The tram terminus on York Place is only five minutes from Abercromby Place, with frequent direct services to Edinburgh's International Airport.
There is an excellent choice of schools within easy reach, including The Edinburgh Academy, Fettes College and Drummond Community High.
