GGA luxury home in one of Edinburgh’s most upmarket areas – which has a famous medical history – is destined to leave buyers in good health.

The beautifully designed three storey house at Rattray Drive is located in Greenbank Village – the site of the former City Hospital – and is on the market through Edinburgh based estate agents, Gilson Gray, for offers over £865,000.

The substantial property features five bedrooms with two en-suite bathrooms, a turreted drawing and dining room, high quality kitchen with dining area, utility room, family room, gymnasium, and an open-air balcony with commanding views.

Outside there is a large external store room, plus private west, south and east-facing gardens; a sunken decked patio area which is ideal for al fresco dining and private parking.GG

Rob McGregor, from Gilson Gray Property Services, said: “27 Rattray Drive is a real stand-out property for us and represents the best of Edinburgh luxury living – with great access to both the bustling city centre and the countryside.

“Properties of this type – and at this price – come only rarely onto the property market in Edinburgh.

“It boasts three storeys of sophisticated, contemporary interior design complemented by a red sandstone Victorian façade with balconies and turrets, and offers great views of the Pentlands.

GG“Aside the eye-catching kitchen it has a truly impressive turreted master bedroom, and the whole property is expertly decorated throughout.

“As well a host of attractive features, the stand-out for any wine enthusiast will be the unique wine cellar which is viewed from a glass floor in the kitchen.

“It means anyone buying this property, needs only to pop downstairs to grab a bottle of bubbly to celebrate their good fortune.”

The end-terrace house forms part of an exclusive conversion (c.2004) of the Victorian City Hospital, built in 1896. The City Hospital was noted across the UK for its treatment of infectious and tropical diseases, and it had surgical departments for chest and thoracic surgery.GG

Set amidst stunning scenery of mature trees and period architecture, the location provides a secluded and village feel, yet is only three miles from Edinburgh city centre.
