6 Raeburn Street, Edinburgh, EH4 1HY


Situated on one of the most charming cobbled streets in Stockbridge, a highly sought-after neighbourhood that lies on the fringes of the city’s historic New Town, the three-bedroomed house forms part of a handsome Georgian sandstone terrace.

Arranged over three floors, the B-listed property is presented to the market in need of comprehensive modernisation and refurbishment but offers excellent potential for buyers to buy a magnificent house in a coveted location. There are ample opportunities, subject to the necessary planning consent approvals, to create a beautiful family home ideally suited for modern living.  Properties on this peaceful one-way cobbled street are rarely available and this is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a period home that lies just a short walk from Edinburgh’s city centre.

The impressive property is located just a stone’s throw from all the extensive local amenities on offer in vibrant Stockbridge and is just a short walk to leafy Inverleith Park and the Royal Botanic Garden.

6 Raeburn Place is a well-proportioned three-bedroomed Georgian house that offers plenty of design scope, subject to the necessary planning consents, that would allow for the creation of a wonderful family home. With a tranquil setting, the property is set back from the charming, cobbled street that features original stone gate posts at each end. The property is accessed via a decorative wrought-iron gate and a path that leads up to the classical columned Georgian front door. Benefitting from its position as the central property on the Georgian terrace, its façade is the most architecturally rich with a decorative classical pediment and fluted columned sash and case windows on the ground level.


The spacious accommodation is as follows:


Ground Floor


  • Entrance Hall: The entrance hall features a decorative wood-carved arch that separates the tiled vestibule with the hall where there is an under-stair cloakroom and storage cupboard.

  • Sitting Room: Accessed from the hallway is a spacious sitting room with ceiling cornicing and two sash and case windows offering delightful views over the front garden to the pretty cobbled street.

  • Kitchen-Dining Room:  The good-sized kitchen and dining room, which features a wood-panelled fireplace with inset gas fire, are located at the rear of the property. Both enjoy lovely views through sash and case windows into the private courtyard. With the necessary planning approvals in place, a stunning contemporary space with a modern kitchen and dining room could easily be created.

  • WC Room: Stone steps down lead from the kitchen to a WC room as well as the back door that gives direct access to the courtyard.


First Floor:


  • A staircase with a decorative wood balustrade leads up from the entrance hall to the first-floor landing which is flooded with natural light from the skylight above.

  • Principal Bedroom: This generously sized double bedroom features two sash and case windows with working shutters that offer views across the cobbled street at the front of the house.  The high-ceilinged room benefits from wood flooring, an impressive original working fireplace with a marble mantel that is set into a wood-panelled wall. There is also a shelved Edinburgh Press and a walk-in dressing room with a sash and case window.

  • Bathroom: In need of modernisation, the wood-panelled bathroom has an integrated bath, pedestal basin and WC.

  • There are two further double bedrooms situated to the rear of the house both enjoying a lovely open outlook over the neighbouring leafy gardens and Georgian architecture.



  • A Ramsay ladder from the first-floor landing accesses an extensive stand-up attic space which has an electrical power supply. There is potential, subject to the necessary planning consents, of extending the staircase to this level and creating an en-suite double bedroom.


Outside Space:


  • Front Garden: Private front garden with a paved area with an ornamental stone seat and floral beds and a mature hedge.

  • Rear Courtyard: Delightful stone wall-enclosed courtyard with space for al fresco dining. There is an integrated stone-built garden shed.
