West End Townhouse with fantastic refurbishment/re-development potential
6 Manor Place comprises a mid-terrace, self-contained, Grade B-listed traditional stone townhouse building on the west side of Manor Place. The accommodation is arranged over lower ground, ground, first, second and third floors, accessed via a main door entrance at raised ground floor level, which leads to a grand vestibule and hallway. The lower ground floor can be accessed separately from street level, or via a rear entrance, and could easily be self-contained. Internally, the property retains most of its original layout and boasts an abundance of period features, including an elegant stairwell which is flooded with light from the cupola, whilst the ground and first floor rooms have intricate cornicing, decorative ceiling roses and period fireplaces. At the rear of the property there is a dedicated car parking area for at least three cars.
6 Manor Place is located in Edinburgh’s prestigious West End – the street is dominated by the impressive St Mary’s Cathedral. The property is well located for access to public transport, with the nearest tram stop only a 2-minute walk providing regular services to Edinburgh Airport. There are also regular bus services within the immediate vicinity providing access to all parts of the city. Haymarket railway station is a short distance away linking Edinburgh with local and national rail services. The property’s west end location also provides a wide range of shops, bars, boutiques, cafes and restaurants. The immediate location has historically provided a mix of commercial and residential use, however, the immediate vicinity is increasingly returning to private residential use. There are a number of high profile neighbouring office occupiers including Johnston Carmichael, Barclays Wealth and the Japanese, Russian and Italian Consulates.
