Historic Edinburgh offices with royal connection up for sale

Posted on by Offices.org.uk

HISTORIC offices in a country house six miles from the centre of Edinburgh are up for sale or lease.

A-Listed Baberton House traces its history back to 1622 and is able to boast of impressive royal connections.

The 17th century property was built by King Charles 1’s Principal Master of Works, James Murray.

Following the July Revolution of 1830, France’s King Charles X abdicated and spent three months at Baberton House after going into exile.

With over 8,500 sq ft of internal space and grounds totalling 10.8 acres, Baberton House has most recently been used as the head office of property and construction business Cruden Group.

Peter Lyell for Savills commented: “Depending on planning consents, the building could be returned to residential use as an amazing family home; as a boutique hotel in a brilliant location; or indeed it could continue as a corporate HQ with its easy travel links and plentiful parking.  Whatever its future, Baberton House will remain an important feature of Edinburgh’s property scene.”
