Estate agents Knight Frank are advertising Rock House for sale with offers in excess of £1,795,000. Rock House came to worldwide fame as the home and studio of David Octavius Hill, the artist and pioneering photographer who, in 1843 together with Robert Adamson, developed their expertitse at working the calotype process there. The house is now a family home on Edinburgh's Calton Hill.
The current owners have managed to create a 21st-century home that is sympathetic with the original period of the house. Built in the 1750s, it is reputed to be one of the oldest houses in Edinburgh’s New Town.
