Wellington Place is a truly unique property. The town house was originally designed for a wealthy merchant because of its proximity to the old trading centre of Leith docks and retains a wealth of original features: extravagant plasterwork , marble fireplaces, etched glass windows and original shutters on all windows.

A stunning bow-ended master bedroom which would most likely have been the original dining-room, as suggested by the marble fireplace and etched glass windows is a relaxing place to spend time after a day sightseeing in the historical city.

These original features have been combined with the open-plan style and contemporary features of 21st-century living to provide a calm and relaxing environment. The modern open plan kitchen and dining area have all the appliances one would expect from a state of the art kitchen while retaining the original grand period features of the room. The lounge also has a remotely controlled gas fire, very authentic, within an impressive Georgian fireplace for cosy nights in. All windows have working shutters.

The property comes with state of the art media entertainment and communications including; 40" Sony flat screen - full HD, Blue Ray DVD, fast broad band via wifi. This place is seriously cool!

There is also plenty of free on-street parking, a major asset in any city. The nearest bus route is just 5 mins. round the corner with buses departing every 5 minutes directly to Prices Street, where the journey time is approx 10 mins - so extremely close to the city centre without the same extent of noise and traffic.
