Property Description

A rarely available and fabulous opportunity to purchase a very impressive, main door, five-bedroom, Grade A-listed Georgian double upper apartment with attic floor.

This is the first time in over 60yrs this property has come to the market - located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic and prestigious New Town, this charming apartment, now in need of upgrade and modernisation, offers a unique opportunity to tailor to the incoming buyer’s individual needs. Benefiting from main door entry, basement courtyard, basement storage and wine cellar, three under pavement stores and an abundance of fine period details such as flagstone flooring, stone staircase, sash and case windows with working shutters, butlers bell, exquisite original fireplaces and a stunning cupola on the top floor.

Spanning over 5,000 sq ft including the attic floor, which could be converted into living space, subject to the necessary consents, this property provides extensive family accommodation over three levels, with impressive dual aspect vistas over the city skyline and across to Fife.

Set in a coveted location within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Edinburgh’s New Town, Nelson Street enjoys an enviable position within easy walking distance of the city’s business, financial and shopping districts, George Street’s boutiques and bars and also cosmopolitan Stockbridge, renowned for its village atmosphere and artisan shops, cafés and restaurants. Harvey Nichols, John Lewis’ department store, and the new state of the art St. James Quarter and Shopping Centre are just minutes away as are Tesco and Waitrose supermarkets and the popular independent shops and local producers of Canonmills and Broughton Street. There are highly regarded schools nearby and it is an excellent location for Waverley Railway Station and transport links to Edinburgh International Airport.
