Edinburgh Town House for sale
We have a fabulous Town House in the Newington Area of Edinburgh for sale. The house build was started in 1830 and completed in 1832. As many of the original features as possible, such as the cornicing, have been retained but all mod cons we think have been added to make the house a beautiful place to live in.
This "B" listed Town House now benefits from secondary glazing at the front of the house and double glazing at the rear. There is central heating and very modern wiring throughout the whole house. The front of our townhouse has parking space for three cars and benefits from 2 seperate entrances, one to the ground and upper levels and the second to our garden level appartment. There are currently 5 en-suite bedrooms and a further 5 rooms which can be used as bedrooms, offices, funrooms or whatever type of room is required.
From the front car park there are 6 steps which lead to the front door. This opens to a small entrance vestibule which is a definite plus in keeping any of the famous Edinburgh breezes from entering the house.
The town house is currently trading as a Four Stars ( STB & AA ) guest house in the Newington area of Edinburgh. The property is part of an Georgian terrace and is established over three floors, currently with the ground and first floor used for letting purposes and the garden level as owners private residential area. The Guest House is very well established with a good reputation and lots of repeat business. It won a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellance in 2012 and 2013.
The property currently consists of six letting bedrooms, 5 of which are en-suite and 1 with private facilities. The ground floor consists of entrance vestibule and hallway, guests dining room, en-suite family room, small toilet with wash hand basin and a fully fitted kitchen.
The other 5 letting rooms are on the first floor. The current combination consists of 2 family rooms, 3 double rooms and 1 twin room. All rooms in both letting and residential area are either double glazed or have secondary glazing to comply with the Town House's B listed status. There is a guest's dining room capable of comfortably seating up to 16. At present this is only used for serving breakfast but obviously has lots of potential for further use. This room currently has counters setup for a buffet style breakfast and also has a computer with wireless broadband for guest's use. There are 2 phone lines with broadband within the property
On the ground floor level there is a fully fitted kitchen with american style fridge freezer, 2 fan assisted ovens and gas hob as well as plumbing for 2 dishwashers, although there is only 1 currently installed.
On the garden level, which is now being used as the owner's private accommodation but could easily be used for letting purposes, there is a four bedroom appartment, 1 of which has french doors to the patio area, with living room, fully fitted kitchen with dining area, office area, master bathroom and seperate shower room with w.c. Although there is a connecting stairway to the letting part of the Town House, the residential area does have it's own seperate entrance. There is ample storage areas with 1 large cupboard housing a side by side fridge freezer with plumbed in water for ice and filtered chilled water.
The property has a large patio area and large secluded rear garden with many mature shrubs and trees.
