A rare opportunity to acquire a 19th century mews house, currently utilised as an office with private parking below, that is situated on a peaceful cobbled street in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic New Town. Sitting on the doorstep of upmarket George Street and Charlotte Square, one of most beautiful squares in the city, this nearly 1,700 square foot property benefits from four individual garages (a highly sought-after commodity in Edinburgh) on street level.
This is an exceptional multi-use asset or development opportunity that provides a blank canvas for a potential buyer to acquire a substantial property in a prime city centre location for use either as an office, a home or a combination of both. There are ample opportunities, subject to the necessary planning consent approvals, to configure the property and reinstate it as one entire residential dwelling. Young Street Lane is well placed for transport links, with Waverley Station within walking distance and tram and bus links to Edinburgh International Airport.

Property Details & Description
Summary of Accommodation
One Large Office & WC, Hall, Second Office/Living Room, Third Office/Bedroom, Bathroom, Kitchen.
Situated on a quiet cobbled lane, 22 Young Street Lane forms part of a terrace of Georgian mews properties that are currently used for both business and residential purposes. On either side of the front door of the stone-fronted mews property there are two good sized single garages with additional storage space. With the necessary planning consents in place, there is potential to integrate several of these garages into the main building if the buyer wishes to convert the building into a home. Alternatively, the garages could be used for rental income as they are a much-valued commodity in the city centre. Stone steps lead directly up from the entrance hall to the first floor. On the left side there is a larger room (currently used as an office) that spans the depth of the property. This pitched-roofed office features a bank of glass-panelled ceiling windows and an additional window overlooking the cobbled street allowing plenty of natural light to flood into the room. This versatile-use room could be redesigned to create the most magnificent open plan contemporary living-dining space or double bedroom. It is also benefits from an en-suite WC. On the other side of the building, there are two rooms that lead off a hallway. Overlooking the cobbled street at the front of the building, the second largest office space or living room is connected to a galley kitchen, whilst there is a further small office space or bedroom to the back of the building. At the end of the hallway there is a bathroom, in need of modernisation, that features a bath, wash basin and WC.
