Particularly fine and beautifully renovated Georgian townhouse
12 Danube Street is a particularly fine example of a Georgian terraced townhouse offering charming and flexible family accommodation on four floors. Many of the original period features have been retained while the house has been recently and sensitively renovated to an exceptionally high specification, catering perfectly for modern day family requirements. At ground floor level a welcoming stone flagged entrance hall leads to the sitting and dining room with marble mantelpiece. Next door lies the beautifully appointed breakfasting kitchen, with Aga, while to the rear there is a WC and the rear door opening directly to the garden.
An elegant stone stair crowned by a delightful cupola rises to the first floor off which lies the impressive master bedroom with marble mantelpiece, three full height windows and a balcony overlooking Danube Street. There is a dressing room linking to the wonderful en suite bath and shower room, finished with Imperial fittings and high quality tiles. A further stair rises to the second floor where there are two charming bedrooms, a study/ 4th bedroom and a superb family bath and shower room.
At lower ground floor level there is an integrated and spacious 1 bedroom flat, with a charming sitting room with kitchenette off and an en suite bedroom. With direct access from the front basement area to this level, it could be used as self-contained guest accommodation.
There is a stone flagged courtyard to the front with under pavement cellars. To the rear there is a charming and recently landscaped south west facing walled garden, with colourful planting and large terraces, ideal for external dining.

Quite simply one of the best renovations I have seen for a while. This is a spectacular house in one of Edinburgh's best areas.Ben Fox
