Charming Georgian townhouse in the New Town with south facing garden.
6 Lynedoch Place is an elegant, beautifully presented and well proportioned Georgian townhouse offering spacious, comfortable and bright accommodation set out over the ground, lower ground and first floors.
Prior to the current owners, the property was previously owned by Jack Vettriano who painted many of his highly sought after pieces of art in the house. It is thought that he chose the drawing room to paint in for the wonderful natural light that is provided. Some of his art uses the house as a background.
The property is well orientated to benefit from an abundance of natural light while offering spectacular views over the Dean Valley and the north of Edinburgh to the Firth of Forth and Fife.
Much of the properties original charm remains with many period features including the original flag stone hall, marble mantelpieces, cornicing and working shutters.
Of particular note is the majestic drawing room on the first floor which has three floor to ceiling windows and provide a wonderful amount of light. There is a central white marble fireplace and fine cornicing. Completing the accommodation on the first floor is the principal bedroom, guest bedroom and family bathroom.
On the ground floor, to the front of the house, there is a beautifully proportioned bow ended dining room. The dining room has a leafy and pleasant aspect over the private front garden. To the rear there is a cosy family room and bedroom which could also be utilised as a study. A door leads to a W/C and a door to the garden.
The lower ground floor offers a practical and spacious dining kitchen with four oven Aga. French doors open to the rear garden and there is a useful utility room. Adjacent to the kitchen is the fourth bedroom which has an en suite shower room.
The remainder of the accommodation on this level can either be utilised as part of the main house or closed off to provide a separate, self contained flat which could be let out or used for visitors. If separated, the flat provides a sitting room with kitchen off, a double bedroom and a wet room.
Dependant on configuration the house can provide up to six bedrooms.
The house sits well back from the road and has a delightful and easily maintained front garden with gated path leading to the front door.
To the rear there is an easily maintained and private mature garden which can be accessed from the kitchen or study.
In addition, there may be a double garage and mews flat on Lynedoch Place Lane available by separate negotiation.
