27 Rattray Drive
Forming part of the exclusive City Hospital development in idyllic Greenbank, 27 Rattray Drive represents a unique family home of unrivalled style, space and grandeur. Built c. 1896 on secluded parkland three miles from the city centre, and transformed into luxury homes c. 2004, the sympathetic Victorian hospital conversion is characterised by its handsome sandstone façade, balconies and turrets, not to mention vast windows that yield magnificent views of the Pentland Hills and beyond. The end-terrace property boasts three storeys of elegant family accommodation and has been recently reconfigured, extended and refurbished to a flawless specification.

Nestled at the end of a tranquil cul-de-sac, the double-fronted house makes a striking first impression with its fine sandstone façade, twin-turrets and balconies, which command breathtaking views of the historic hospital buildings and their leafy surrounds.
Welcoming you into the property is a useful vestibule with a built-in cloak cupboard and from here you step into the grand hall, where warm oak flooring is paired with classic grey and white hues for a contemporary, elegant ambience. From the hall, double doors open into a large south-facing reception room, whose twin turreted wings accommodate an east facing dining room and a west-facing drawing room. The wide French doors in-between allow access to a covered, stone-built balcony overlooking tranquil gardens.
Returning to the hall you reach the luxurious open-plan kitchen and dining area, which offers a charming space for everyday meals and relaxed entertaining, complete with direct access to a tranquil patio garden – perfect for dining al fresco.
Lined with minimalist gloss-white cabinetry topped with sleek Corian work surfaces, the kitchen houses a full complement of integrated appliances, including: a dishwasher, a fridge, a freezer, a conventional oven, a combination microwave oven, a five-ring gas hob and an extractor hood. The toughened-glass panel set into the kitchen floor provides a window into the impressive, temperature-controlled wine cellar below. The first-floor is replete with a convenient utility room, a store cupboard and an immaculate cloakroom.
Downstairs the ground floor has been completely remodelled and extended to create a vast living space with electric underfloor heating throughout.
Furnished with bespoke cabinetry, the central living room represents a versatile blank canvas to suit endless configurations, and is supplemented with a dining area and a home office/music room (with bespoke cabinetry) in the wings. Designed for year-round use, the living room opens onto a south-facing covered patio framed by handsome sandstone arches leading on a manicured lawn, and boasts an inviting oil-fired living-flame fire for added comfort in the colder months. The ground floor also features a stone wine cellar, a fantastic home gym/play room and a side door onto a secluded decked area.
Ascending to the second floor landing, which is styled to match the entrance hall, you reach the breathtaking master bedroom.
Bathed in natural light from seven turret windows and a patio door onto the south-facing balcony, this most luxurious space enjoys twin-fitted wardrobes and a sumptuous ensuite wet room tiled in polished grey. Housed within the turret adjacent is another double bedroom with fitted wardrobes, fabulous multi-aspect windows and balcony access. Completing the top floor are two further double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and the pristine four-piece family bathroom. The property benefits from gas central heating, electric underfloor heating and double glazing for optimum home comfort and efficiency.
Owing to its prime end position, the house enjoys private enclosed gardens to the south, east and west, which have been beautifully designed and landscaped as an extension of the living space. The property benefits from one allocated parking space, plus ample visitors’ parking in the vicinity.
