The lucky winner of last night’s £2.1m National Lottery prize could now buy themselves an amazing new home. But what could they get for their money in Edinburgh?
1. Five bedroom detached house in Gillespie Road, Spylaw, Edinburgh, for £1,995,000
For just under £2m, the winner could purchase this sprawling mansion that was built in 1995. The property offers plenty of entertaining space to celebrate the Lotto win, with four vast reception rooms. There is no shortage of space for guests either, as there is extra accommodation in the granny flat and guest house.

3. Four bedroom detached house in Corrennie Gardens, Edinburgh, for £1,500,000
This stone built detached Victorian villa sits on a quiet street in a conservation area and has recently been reduced by £50,000. The property has been well-maintained but there is scope for modernisation for those that don't mind a bit of DIY. The house also has plenty of character thanks to its fireplaces, detailed cornicing and wood panelling.

4. Eight bedroom detached house in Essex Road, Barnton, Edinburgh for £1,200,000
There’s plenty of space for the whole family in this house, with 4,800 sq ft of flexible accommodation on offer. If that isn’t quite enough room, there is also planning permission to build a detached home at the foot of the enormous garden, which would have separate access from Whitehouse Road.

5. Five bedroom detached house in Dick Place, Grange, Edinburgh, for £1,200,000
This Victorian home has been modestly decorated and leaves the new owner with a blank canvas to make it their own. The house is split over three levels and still has many of its original features including sash-and-case windows, working shutters, wood panelling and original fireplaces.
