Outside the gardens are spectacular. Extending to three-and-a-half acres they comprise a charming combination of woodland, formal planting, lawns and a pond.

The property is located just outside the city centre of Edinburgh just two miles from Princes Street, providing an unprecedented opportunity to purchase an historic property within easy reach of the centre of the Scottish capital.
