First time on the market for over 40 years, 2 Nelson Place is a most charming and highly individual terraced mews style cottage located in a quiet yet central position in the very heart of Edinburgh's world renowned and historic Georgian New Town.

The property which is ideal as a permanent residence would also make a perfect pied-a-terre with the accommodation extending over the ground and first floors of the traditional stone built period property. At ground floor level there is a well-proportioned and comfortable open plan sitting /dining room with bespoke built in shelved and storage furniture, under stair storage cupboard, a fireplace with an electric fire and a modern John Lewis kitchen with a range of floor and wall mounted kitchen cabinetry, granite work tops and integrated appliances including AEG oven, Elica hood and Bosch gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer.

From the sitting room the open plan staircase rises to the first floor where there is a landing with access hatch to the roof void and a cupboard housing the central heating boiler and the hot water cylinder. There are two good sized bedrooms, the master bedroom with bespoke built in wardrobes and drawer unit, bedroom 2 with fitted mirror fronted wardrobes and a spacious modern tiled bathroom with bath, wall mounted shower fitting, Wash hand basin, WC, mirror fronted medicine cabinet and a heated towel rail.


The New Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of the City. The main shopping and commercial thoroughfares of Princes Street and George Street are close by including Harvey Nichols and the exclusive Multrees Walk. There are ample shopping establishments and for larger retail outlets Craigleith Park is a short drive away. The cosmopolitan area of Stockbridge borders the New Town and offers a range of speciality shops, deli's, bistros and popular bars. The green spaces of The Royal Botanic Gardens, Inverleith Park and the Water of Leith Walkway are also nearby. Waverley and Haymarket rail stations and St Andrew Square bus station are all easily accessible with regular bus links throughout the City, and an express bus runs from Waverley Station to Edinburgh International Airport.
