Duncan’s Land, 4/2 India Place, Edinburgh, EH3 6EH
Rarely available double upper three/four bedroom flat in historic building that is Duncan’s Land. Situated both in the heart of Stockbridge and in the UNESCO World Heritage New Town, this property offers both a prime location and the best of both worlds; classical Georgian architecture combined with the village feel of Stockbridge with its cafes, restaurants and shops.
The building itself, built in the 1720s, was also the birthplace of the famous artist, David Roberts RA . This is a historic, characterful property flooded with light from all sides enjoying a very central yet tranquil position. With the original stone spiral staircase leading up to the property as well as an original Mansard roof, the apartment also benefits from a beautifully secluded and sunny walled garden, shared only with the property beneath. The property is entered via a gate and through the garden giving it a really private feel. Hidden gem in the midst of where it’s all happening. Enormous potential too.
