Property description

A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial detached Georgian property in need of comprehensive renovation. Birch House is located in Newington, a sought-after neighbourhood renowned for its large classical-styled villas, tranquil leafy streets and period architecture, that lies within easy walking distance of the city centre and the historic Old Town.
Arranged over three levels, this eight-bedroom sandstone house, built for a wealthy wine merchant in the early 19th century, offers the potential buyer an excellent opportunity to acquire an impressive property with a large west-facing enclosed rear garden seldom offered in a prime city centre location. Historically the property has been run both as a guesthouse and, more recently, as a multiple occupancy dwelling with a current HMO licence.

There are ample opportunities, subject to the necessary planning consent approvals, to create a magnificent family home with flexible modern living spaces. There is also the opportunity to create a self-contained two-bedroomed flat on the lower garden level floor with its own entrance for either rental or family use or to develop several separate apartments within the property.

The b-listed property benefits from many original period features including high-ceilings, sash and case windows, call bells, ceiling cornicing, rose circles, fireplaces and a stunning stair window. Situated in the city’s South Side, the property lies within walking distance of excellent schools, expansive green open spaces, and a wide range of local amenities.
