7 Osborne Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 5HG







Outstanding four-bedroom, three-bathroom semi-detached Victorian family home exquisitely renovated and extended by the present owners, creating both a practical and comfortable home to the highest possible specifications. 

The renovation has been painstakingly and beautifully undertaken resulting in a property in walk-in condition. With neutral, tasteful contemporary fittings and decoration, it offers a fresh palette for any buyer. Great proportions and layout, original features including working shutters, decorative cornicing and panelling throughout, together with the highest quality interiors both in design, finish and fittings. Viewing of Osbourne Terrace is highly recommended.

This home has been enhanced by an excellent living/ kitchen/dining extension renovated from existing outbuildings and maintaining the attractive stone pitched roof which is a key feature from the rear garden. The garden itself is a design triumph. A south facing position, beautiful extensive patio and bespoke BBQ area/outdoor kitchen offer the perfect spot for enjoying a summer’s day. It also houses a garden room/home office built of Siberian larch and to the highest standards.


In addition to both front and rear meticulously landscaped gardens, the property enjoys private off-road parking for up to three cars and is set back from the road with open views both ways.

Osborne Terrace is situated close to Murrayfield and directly opposite Playfair’s Victorian masterpiece, Donaldson’s with its green leafy aspect and majestic appearance. There are excellent schools both primary and secondary, state and private on the doorstep as well as shops at Roseburn. Haymarket station is just a few minutes’ walk away and the property lies in a great position for access to the main road arteries out of the city.

Ground Floor

Entrance to the property is via a paved driveway and landscaped front garden leading to handsome panelled Victorian front door.

Vestibule and hall

The entrance vestibule with original tiled floor and wood panelling to waist level provides a welcoming and grand entrance. Half glazed double doors lead through to an L shaped hall. This has light coloured herringbone style timber flooring giving a uniform and contemporary look. The neutral tones set the calming feel of the property. From the hall, a sweeping staircase with wrought iron spindles and solid timber handrail sweep up to the first floor. Light floods in from a large, pitched cupola at the top.


Drawing Room

Immediately to the left and to the front of the house is the Drawing Room. With two large full length panelled windows and working shutters, it is both light and spacious with a classic white fireplace and black hearth providing focus. Neutral carpeting and walls with the ceiling and ornate cornicing picked out in white.

Utility Room

This is what every family home should have: a brilliantly equipped and large utility room containing a wall length bank of full length glossy fronted cupboards for storage of domestic appliances , coats and shoes. An external door opens out to a path leading to rear garden. There is a newly fitted Worcester boiler, granite work surfaces to one side with washing machine and dryer beneath. Tiled floor and pulley.


Kitchen/Dining/Sitting Room

The L of the hall leads up two steps to a glass door and through to the showstopper Kitchen/Living/Dining area.

This space is a triumph of design and function with light coming in from all directions via full length single pane glass panels as well as doors at the south end which open onto the garden patio. On entry, the dining area, with ample seating for up to ten persons, is directly ahead and looks onto the garden. The herringbone flooring continues throughout a vast space which has been carefully designed so that each area, although linking, has its own character and feel. The seating area adjacent to the dining is bathed in light from the west and provides the perfect place to relax whilst being accessible to the kitchen.

The kitchen itself forms the extended area of the former outbuildings and, with the original pitched roof is both characterful and practical. An island gives a central focus, together with the glass panels and doors at the far end with their grey surrounds and which open into the garden.

The island has a light grey work surface, complementing grey cupboards and drawers beneath. There is a Neff four-ring induction hob cooker with integrated extractor. To the other side is another work surface and bank of units both undercounter and wall mounted. A large marble backsplash is a focal point above the integrated sink. Cupboards are dark grey and there are two wall mounted Siemens ovens as well as microwave and drinks chiller. Overall, highly contemporary, beautiful and practical.  

Excellent lighting is a feature of this space both in terms of LED recessed lights and centre pendant lights which make a huge statement; these are included in the price. A glass door leads onto the pathway to the rear south facing garden.


Understairs Cupboard/ Hall Cupboard/ Further cupboard

Another excellent aspect of the property is the ample cupboard space both understairs and with an additional two walk in cupboards kitted out to a high spec with shelving and drawers.


First Floor

Ascending the staircase, you reach the sunbathed landing with four spacious double bedrooms leading off.

This excellent bright double bedroom with neutral décor, high ceilings and two large floor to ceiling windows overlooks Playfair’s  Blind school, an architectural gem surrounded by greenery creating an elegant open outlook.

A luxury contemporary bathroom forms part of the room. With a modern free-standing bath, wall mounted hand basin with vanity unit beneath, a tiled area with a shower area to one side and a door on the left-hand side leading to a WC, it oozes decadence and relaxation.

Outside Space

Front Garden

As with all other aspects of 7 Osborne Terrace, both front and rear gardens have been thoroughly thought through, well planned and imaginatively implemented to create incredibly appealing spaces.

The front drive with an expanse of hard standing in the form of attractive block paving provides parking for up to three cars. With a low wall to the side providing the boundary between pavement and property as well as a high wall to the right-hand side and beech hedging to the left, the garden frames the house well and gives a degree of privacy. To the left of the driveway is a large raised bed centrepiece with grasses and shrubs and surrounded by lawn and more shrubs, bordered by gravel.

There are bespoke discreet storage bins for household waste.


Rear Garden 

A gravel path runs down the right-hand side of the property through a secure gate and past the back door to a second lockable gate offering total security and privacy.


The rear south facing garden is safe, tranquil and private with the feel of a Mediterranean garden both through the planting and design. The expansive light patio area extends the width of the house and is dominated by two separate bespoke aluminium gazebos the roofs of which open and close which allow you to dine outside whatever the weather. In addition, there is a wonderful top quality outdoor kitchen with a concrete worktop which houses gas cannisters for the BBQ together with Siberian larch backing. This is a great additional asset to the property. The garden offers symmetry with planting to either side of the patio and central steps to a lawn area.

To the rear is a bespoke and excellent garden Room/home office.


Home Office/ Garden Room

Complementing the outdoor kitchen with the same larch cladding, the spacious garden room with its light laminate flooring, heating and three panelled bifold doors offer a wall of glass with the opportunity to enjoy a view of the garden and house whilst offering a contrast to the main house. To either side of the room are two hidden storage rooms, one for bikes and the other for garden equipment.

The garden truly is an oasis. Raised beds and planters throughout foster a relaxing nature-filled ambience, yet the design allows easy maintenance .
