6 Bellâ€™s Brae gives an unusual glimpse into 19th Century Edinburgh, having been built as a multi storey stable building for the famously successful, and eccentric, James â€œCabbieâ€ Stewart in 1881. Cabbie Stewart ran Edinburghâ€™s foremost cab-hiring business from his elaborately baronial house on Dean Bridge (Deanbrae House). Having gone to great expense rebuilding Deanbrae House in lavish Scottish vernacular style, he chose to improve it still further by giving his otherwise functional new stable building at the end of his garden an extravagant corbelled and turreted gable. It was desgined by architect Thomas Moncur to house horses and carriages for the business over three levels, using the natural fall of the ground to allow level access to each of the floors. The attic storey would have been used to store hay, and possibly as accommodation for Cabbie Stewartâ€™s staff. It was requisitioned by the Lothian and Borders Horse Regiment during the First World War, and became a garage for cars in later years. After 40 years in office use, we are very pleased to secure its future as 10 distinctive and very appealing apartments.
