The property 23 Marshall Place is a stunning Georgian four storey town house overlooking the South Inch in Perth. Marshall Place, designed by the eminent Classicist Robert Reid, dates from the early 1800’s and overlooks the South Inch park. Historically, Marshall Place was the starting point for an ambitious scheme for a southern ‘New Town’ in Perth consisting of a plan of grand Georgian terraces along similar lines to Master Planner Robert Reid’s northern extension of Edinburgh’s New Town including Drummond Place and Great King Street. The Marshall Place blocks, albeit in a scaled down form, are the foremost representatives of a plan to reach fruition. The plans for Marshall Place were commissioned in 1801 and number 23 was completed in 1808.

23 Marshall Place has been extensively renovated by the present owners during their ownership and now form a wonderful property which has retained its wealth of original features. Features include beautiful ornate cornice work, a fine curving cantilevered staircase, impressive principal rooms, working shutters throughout, panelled wooden doors and lovely fireplaces.

The front door on the upper ground floor opens to an entrance vestibule leading to the inner hall with doors off to the dining room and modern kitchen. There is a double interconnecting door between the kitchen and dining room with the dining room enjoying views over the South Inch. A modern kitchen is built to a very high standard and includes cooker and extensive fitted units. From the hall an original spiral staircase leads to the first floor with doors off to a wonderful drawing room with further doors to the library and the guest bedroom with en suite shower room. The spiral staircase continues up to the top floor with outstanding master bedroom enjoying a large en suite bathroom. From the hallway the staircase also leads down to the ground floor with doors leading to a large study and a media room, both these could easily be used as bedrooms served by bathroom on the staircase leading down to the ground floor. There is a door to a utility room.
