A six-bedroom house in south Edinburgh has been sold for about £1m more than the original asking price.
The house sold for more than £2.5m
Upmarket selling agents Brodies said the house in Whitehouse Terrace had been sold for between £2.5m and £3m.
The mansion, which was put on the market at £1.8m, has been bought by one of Scotland's leading accountants.
Brodies said that nine offers in excess of £2m were made for the house, proving there are more people with the wealth to make such a purchase.
The selling agents described the property as "one of the finest houses in Edinburgh, standing in beautiful gardens of about 0.75 acre".
It was built in 1862 and the buyer will be just the fourth owner in that time.
It is one of only 12 homes in the street.
As well as six bedrooms, the house has a drawing room, dining room, study, conservatory adjoining contemporary kitchen, three bathrooms and a billiards room.
There is also a self-contained three-bedroom wing, garage and parking facilities.
Earlier this year, a house in the same street sold for £2.7m.
