13 Douglas Terrace comprises a superb, attractive and well-proportioned double upper main door colony villa, forming part of this substantial and handsome historic terrace. Quietly situated in a pedestrianised zone, the colonies maintain a ‘village character’ in the popular and extremely central Haymarket district of the city.

The property is also conveniently placed for access to Haymarket Station, the West End, and the main commercial and financial heart of the city.

The kitchen and bathroom have been recently renovated to a high standard.

Decoratively the property is in excellent condition and although having been modernised, still retains many original features.  These include sanded and varnished floorboards, some working shutters, decorative cornice work, picture rails, a feature fireplace, panelled doors, and tall moulded skirting boards. In addition there are some attractive features including decorative glazed vestibule door with brass style ironmongery, storage facilities, and excellent use has been made of large sash and case windows to allow copious amounts of natural daylight to flood through the property.
