About this property

  • Dunerne is a wonderful detached Georgian house with a lovely open outlook in a picturesque village location close to the city centre. Built in 1815, this B-listed house provides bright and beautifully appointed accommodation over two floors and retains an array of both Georgian and later Victorian period detailing. The main living rooms on the ground floor are accessed off a broad reception hall with a stair leading to the bedrooms on the upper floor. The elegant sitting room has a bay window, ornate plasterwork and an open fire with marble surround. The well appointed family room has open views to the front and provides access to the beautifully appointed dining kitchen, which in turn opens to the rear garden. The bedroom accommodation is located on the first floor and includes a principal bedroom with a bay window and open views to the south over Duddingston Loch and towards the tranquil terraced botanic Dr Neil's Garden on the banks of the Loch. There are three further bedrooms served by a family shower room.

    Externally, the house is set back from the street with a front garden and a driveway leading to a garage to the side of the house. The house is set well back from the road and well screened by a mature hedge, enhancing the privacy. An easily maintained garden is set in front of the house with a gated stone path leading to the front door. A real feature of the property is the beautiful garden to the rear with a central lawn surrounded by well stocked herbaceous borders, a variety of plants and trees, including plum, apple, pear and cherry trees. There are delightful views to Arthur's Seat.
