7 Burgess Terrace comprises a handsome and substantial semi-detached Victorian villa set in a quiet cul-de-sac and located within the extremely popular residential enclave known as the Waverley Park Conservation Area which in turn forms part of the Newington area of the city.  The house has been extensively renovated and further extended to offer exceptional and impressive family accommodation on three levels of a contemporary, open plan design while retaining fine period features including cornice work and fireplaces. To the rear of the property is a larger than expected landscaped south and west facing private garden incorporating a decked terrace and a separate garden room. 

The architectural design of the interior accommodation enhances the excellent levels of natural light and has created four spacious open plan living areas, four generous double bedrooms, three modern bathroom/shower room facilities and a stylish and well-appointed kitchen breakfast room with top quality cabinets, Corian work tops and Neff appliances. In addition there is a separate utility room with Corian worktops and a Neff dishwasher and washing machine.

The property features Walnut hardwood floors, Villeroy and Bosch bathrooms with Philippe Stark shower fittings and Duravit W.C's. Many of the principal rooms enjoy either views onto or direct access into the charming landscaped part walled garden with its decked terrace, sweeping lawns and detached 'garden' room.

Family room with bi-fold doors to the decked terrace and garden beyond, a well appointed kitchen/dining room with range of quality wall & floor mounted cabinetry with Corian work tops and access leading out to to the decked terrace, separate utility room.

Burgess Terrace is located within the renowned Waverley Park Conservation Area and entitles the owner to access to two large private parks both within about 5 minutes walk of the property.

Newington is a highly sought after residential neighbourhood south of the city, served by excellent local amenities including a wide range of everyday and specialist shops, bars, restaurants and cafes.  Within easy reach is more comprehensive shopping at Cameron Toll Shopping Centre as well as a number of other retail shops within a short car drive or bus journey away at Straiton Retail Park. Leisure and recreational amenities are plentiful with the Royal Commonwealth Pool and the green open spaces of The Meadows, Arthur's Seat, Holyrood Park, Prestonfield and Craigmillar golf courses, the Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hills all located nearby. The area is also well suited for access to the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and Edinburgh University.  There is good road access to the city bypass with excellent connections to the central motorway network. There are also regular bus services running to and from the city centre. Excellent schools in both the state and private sectors are easily accessible.  Primary schools include Preston Street and St Peter's RC while High schools include both James Gillespie's and St Thomas of Aquin's RC.
