A three- storey, Grade A-listed Georgian terrace in Edinburgh New Town. On the ground floor of this modern home is a hall, lobby, living room, master bedroom suite and cloakroom, while on the first floor there’s a lounge, dining room, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. On the top floor are three guest bedrooms, one with an en suite and walk-in wardrobe, and a bathroom.
Soaring ceilings, vast windows and a sweeping staircase are just a few of the grandiose features of this three-storey Grade A-listed building smack bang in the centre of Edinburgh.
A carefully curated mix of antique and modern gives the home a unique style and sense of personality. Many of the furniture, lighting and artworks were sourced in Scotland, but with Tom Dixon and Matthew Hilton also mixed in – plus furniture picked up in Thailand, the Philippines and China, as well as some classic mid-century pieces.

This home was no ordinary renovation project. It had previously been converted into offices – with a staff kitchen, toilet blocks and all – meaning it took no less than three years to return to its former Georgian glory. Walls had been removed to open it up as an office space, so those needed to be rebuilt, along with proper bathrooms and a kitchen.The extensive renovation allowed for the space and design to be completely reworked with a more contemporary layout.
The combination of modern Tom Dixon pieces, classic Seventies furniture and Georgian antiques really gives this room an eclectic feel.
A huge window lets light fill the dining room, allowing the statement wallpaper to create interest rather than overwhelm the space.
