Prestige property: Refurbishment reveals fantastic family home

Carlton Terrace is a magnificent crescent of Georgian townhouses situated on a peaceful cobbled street east of Calton Hill in the coveted leafy east New Town area of the Capital.

The properties here date back to the early 1820s, having been designed by renowned Greek Revival architect William Playfair, famed for works including National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Observatory.

Number 11 is an impressive A-listed townhouse, set over three floors, and is – arguably – one of the finest in the city, thanks to substantial renovation work made by current owners Gerry and Alice Fowler.

The couple have extensively rethought the property, which was used as a hotel from the early 20th Century until the 1950s, transforming it into a beautiful family home where they live with their three daughters.
