Edinburgh’s Quartermile Developments has announced sales at its prestigious Craighouse development in the Scottish capital have topped £24m, with 29 homes now reserved off-plan.
Located in sought after Morningside, Craighouse is set within 52-acres of surrounding mature woodland, providing a sense of seclusion and privacy. Situated on an elevated position on Easter Craiglockhart Hill, the development boasts a unique outlook onto Edinburgh’s best loved landmarks including Edinburgh Castle, the Firth of Forth and Arthur’s Seat.
The first purchasers have now taken up residence in five of Craighouse’s conversion properties in its South Craig and East Craig buildings. Both buildings have been sympathetically restored to their former glory with many historical features retained.
Close enough to be part of the city, Craighouse is also set apart from the city thanks to its thoughtfully designed masterplan, superb parkland and the quality of life for its residents.
A place of architectural grandeur and a tranquil retreat, the development is unlike any other in Edinburgh as it delivers a distinct combination of space, exclusivity and an abundance of glorious gardens, open lawns, meandering paths and peaceful woodland.
Craighouse offers both outstanding new build and historic conversion properties in a much-loved location which has been part of Edinburgh’s fabric for more than 400 years.
Once complete, the £100m development will comprise a mix of 145 townhouses, penthouses, duplexes and apartments. Prices for a two-bedroom apartment at Craighouse currently start at £520,000.
Anticipation for Craighouse was so high that the first release of 10 properties was quickly reserved by eager purchasers in advance of the launch of the marketing centre.
Since then, demand has remained consistently high, and there are now only ten properties remaining in the first phase of construction, including the recently released new build woodland apartments.
Commenting on Craighouse’s success, Quartermile Developments Sales and Marketing Director, Jan Welsh, said: “There has been a huge amount of interest in Craighouse. Purchasers have come from the local area, as well as the rest of the UK and overseas, which is clear evidence of the wide appeal of the site and its unrivalled location.
“Our soaring sales success demonstrates a strong desire from buyers to act quickly to ensure they secure a home in what is a truly unique Edinburgh development.
“Craighouse is setting new standards for Category A listed conversions within the city and beyond. We are delighted to see the first occupiers move into their properties and look forward to seeing the Craighouse community grow in the coming months.”
The next properties to be released for sale will be located at the heart of the development, in New Craig, which is the largest and most iconic building on the site. The centrepiece of New Craig is the Great Hall which was built in the Baronial style and provides an exceptional social space. This spectacular hall will be preserved for the exclusive use of New Craig residents.
Jan added: “Every detail of Craighouse has been carefully considered to ensure the new buildings blend seamlessly with their historic surroundings. This ranges from the use of brick and stone to the scale and design of the windows.
“This, combined with, open lawns, woodland walks, awe-inspiring views and a location that’s right on the doorstep of the city, makes this undeniably one of the most unique and special locations to live in Edinburgh.”
Prospective purchasers can experience the lifestyle on offer at Craighouse by visiting the marketing centre where they can view the interactive masterplan and take virtual tours of selected properties.
