Dating from circa 1899 and designed by the eminent Scottish architect Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, 17 Barnshot Road is an impressive, 'B' listed detached 'Arts and Crafts' villa set in extensive and mature landscaped garden grounds of circa 1.25 acres.  The villa offers generous family accommodation (4136 sq.ft) and subject to the required planning consents and building warrants offers the potential to further extend the house.  The existing accommodation  offers up to 7 good sized bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, 3 elegant public rooms and a large kitchen.  In addition there is a separate utility room, ample storage, a gated entrance, drive way and a large detached garage.   

We further believe there is the potential to create a separate plot for a substantial house within the grounds, again subject to the required local authority consents. A 'Design Statement' has been drafted by Richard Erdal Architects, and is available online or by request.


Colinton is one of Edinburgh's most sought after residential areas set in the south west of the city sitting in the shadows of the Pentland Hills. It has retained much of its "village charm" and has a good range of local shops, restaurants and bars. More extensive supermarket shopping facilities are available at nearby Tesco and Morrisons whilst easy links to the city bypass open up the many retail parks on the periphery of the City. There are many pleasant walks and cycle paths close by and Kingsknowe Golf Club and Bonaly Country Park are within easy reach. Colinton is ideally situated for commuting distance to the M8, M9, Edinburgh International Airport, Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, University of Edinburgh and the Queensferry Crossing. There are also regular bus services to and from the city centre and excellent schools in both the state and private sectors in nearby areas.

Fixtures and Fittings

The fitted carpets, light fittings and kitchen appliances are included in the sale. The Morano glass chandelier in the sitting room is not included.
