43-47 Heriot Row, Edinburgh

"Part of the Second New Town A Group, a significant surviving part of one of the most important and best preserved examples of urban planning in Britain.

43-47 Heriot Row was built by William and Lewis A Wallace under Thomas Bonnar's supervision; 
The architect William Henry Playfair lived at No 43 in the mid 1820s 
Although Heriot Row's profile has been altered by various additions, the overall sense of the terraces' low roofline has not been lost, and it still retains its original grandeur, increased by its outlook onto the private Queen Street Gardens." [Britain's Listed Buildings]
