This classic Georgian New Town Dublin Street townhouse, located at number 12, ticks all the boxes for buyers in search of a central Edinburgh property, with access to beautiful gardens to boot

Accommodation is arranged over three floors; rooms all have high ceilings and excellent proportions. A stained glass arched window sits over the sweeping staircase in the reception hall and there are three reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as a spacious kitchen/breakfast room.

The lower ground floor could be a self-contained flat as it has its own bedroom kitchen, bathroom and WC. A generous landing on the first floor leads to a drawing room and two double bedrooms, one en-suite, which enjoy the brilliant view of the gardens to the rear. There are four further rooms which could be additional bedrooms or serve another purpose altogether.
