Kerry Wells, Property Manager for Boyd Property, said: “Upper villas in such fine condition rarely come onto the market – and it is understandable why.

“They make the perfect family home, are often quieter than tenement flats and are full of period features.

“121 Morningside Drive is an exceptionally presented property and feels wonderfully light thanks to its well thought out positioning of sky lights and the beautiful bay window in the living room.

"If that isn’t enough Edinburgh city centre is only 10 minutes away by car and 30 minutes by foot, meaning all the famous attractions are very close by but with enough distance for the area to have its own feel and identity.

“Thanks to its location the property is ideal for those working in the city, but with great transport links right on its doorstop, those working in surrounding areas will benefit from a quick commute.”
