The Factors House, 2 Well Court is set in a charming and unique building within Dean Village

The Factors House, 2 Well Court is a charming fully renovated property with its own entrance forming part of a desirable 19th Century residence. Well Court is set in the popular and picturesque Dean Village and its conservation area. The stone-built home has a wealth of original features, including a crow-stepped gable and timber sash and case windows. Nestled within the development and accessed via the quiet residents courtyard the property is in move-in condition.

Well Court is a rare example of an Arts & Crafts building in Edinburgh and within the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the North side of The Water of Leith. In 2009 in an extensive conservation scheme the architectural integrity of the building was restored and its appearance considerably improved. This included using traditional materials to match the original such as red sandstone and handmade roof tiles from Rosemary clay. The building was originally commissioned in 1880’s as social housing for artisans and tradesmen from the Dean Village by Sir John Findlay, who was the proprietor of the Scotsman newspaper.

The airy high-ceilinged entranceway opens into a spacious sitting room which benefits from triple west facing windows affording plenty of natural light. The room also presents a traditional tiled feature fireplace with an ornate wooden surround. From here the in-keeping kitchen is accessed, which comprises various wall and base cabinetry with modern integrated appliances, decorative and practical wall tiling and a circular inset stainless-steel sink. From the main hallway, a useful cupboard provides space for laundry facilities, whilst a contemporary recently refurbished shower room completes the floor.

The turned stairway flows into the first-floor landing with its handy dedicated store room, which branches off onto two well-proportioned and bright bedrooms, one of which has a striking feature fireplace. There is also a boarded attic for convenient storage which has both light and power sockets accessed via an easily used ladder.
