Edinburgh for sale: Three-bedroom Murrayfield apartment part of villa featured in Robert Louis Stevenson novel

Edinburgh home with links to one of Scotland’s greatest ever authors

A three-bedroom apartment in a Murrayfield villa which featured in a novel by one of Scotland’s greatest ever author is up for sale at offers over £875,000.

This rarely available main-door lower ground-floor apartment is set within Duncliffe, a historical C-listed Victorian villa which enjoys its own space and privacy, set behind a stone wall and shielded by trees. Enjoying a rich history, the original owners of Duncliffe villa were close friends of the famous Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, who penned a poem to the home and featured the house in his novel ‘The Misadventures of John Nicholson’, released in 1885.

Today, the residence has been converted into three impressive properties for luxury lifestyles. The three-bedroom home boasts generously proportioned, light-filled rooms with impeccably high ceilings and ornate period details, all finished with attractive décor throughout.

The property offers historical elegance and character, alongside modern sensibilities, incorporating a quality kitchen and two bathrooms. It also features two grand reception rooms, as well as ample private parking and mature private gardens. 

To arrange a viewing, call Gilson Gray on 0131 516 53 66.
