Rare property for sale on Heriot Row in Edinburgh

by ESPC on 30/03/2017 12:11:24

A rarely available property on Heriot Row, which has only had a handful owners in its 210-year history, has been brought to market.

20 Heriot Row, built in 1808.

The original owner of 20 Heriot Row was an architect, John Young, who bought the newly-built property in 1808, forming part of the row of Georgian terraces built by Alexander Munro and Archibald Logan. At that time the property included the lower floors as well. After it was converted into two properties before the 1960s, when it was given A-listed status, there were only two other owners before the current ones.

Beautiful period features

The property, which would require modernising, has plenty of opportunity to enhance its beautiful period features which include intricate cornicing, wood panelling, sash and case windows, marble mantelpiece, fanlight windows and stone entrance hall with original stone staircase.

Grand entrance hall at 20 Heriot Row

Heriot Row, one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious streets, was the first street built in the second phase of the building of the New Town. The buildings in the street are A-listed for the significance of their architecture and history and they also sit within an Outstanding Conservation Area and a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site.

Noteworthy neighbours

The street has an illustrious history of notable residents from when it was first designed and built, with early residents including leading figures from the Enlightenment. Robert Louis Stevenson spent his childhood at no 17 Heriot Row, living there from 1857 and 1880, while artist Alexander Graham Munro lived at number 37 and historian Dr Isabel Grant at number 35.

An opportunity to make it your own

Orlaith Brogan, spokesperson for SPC Scotland, said: “20 Heriot Row is rarely available on the market, having only put up for sale a handful of times since being built in 1808. It is a home which reflects the rich history of the New Town and the Georgian architectural style, offering a wealth of fascinating period detail. Heriot Row is one of Edinburgh’s most prestigious addresses, offering access and views over Queen’s Street Gardens, and so this home is a fascinating example of an A-listed building, with plenty of opportunity to make your own.”

20 Heriot Row is for sale through Urquharts Property, 16 Heriot Row, Edinburgh, and you can view the property on espc.com
