Property description

Interlinked ground and garden flats in terraced period townhouse

9 and 9A Hope Street are interlinked ground and garden flats in a handsome Victorian terraced house which dates from 1847.

Hope Street is described by Historic Scotland as “a classic, two storey terrace with basements and attics, built of ashlar and slate, with architraved windows at first floor level and a stone parapet which has partly been taken down. Built by Kennedy and Macintosh and it is believed that John Chesser was the architect”.

The present day property retains many original features but has been upgraded with new kitchens at both levels. The gas boilers have been removed and replaced by electric heating but the gas supply is still in place if a buyer wishes to reinstate the boilers.

There is scope to further upgrade both the accommodation and the outside space.
