The first collection of conversion properties has been released for sale in New Craig, the iconic Grade A building at the heart of the prestigious Craighouse development.

New Craig is the largest and most famous building on the site with its grand tower proudly rising above the treetops. Designed by the renowned Scottish architect Sydney Mitchell in 1889, it is a much loved and admired landmark and an exquisite example of French Renaissance style architecture.

The building comprises of only 45 one, two, three and four-bedroom conversion apartments with each property thoughtfully designed to create a living environment that is light, spacious and flowing. Period features such as fireplaces and stained-glass windows are being restored to their former glory which, combined with sleek designer kitchens and bathrooms, offer individuality and luxurious modern living.

The first release of properties are now available for reservation, priced from £455,000.

This prestigious Baronial style building is surrounded by sensitively renovated conversions and sympathetically designed new build properties, creating a superb blend of old and new.

The centrepiece of New Craig is the Great Hall, where some of the most outstanding features of the development can be seen. Exquisite ornate ceilings and detailed oak wall panelling will be restored to their former grandeur while the spectacular hall itself will be preserved as a social space for the exclusive use of New Craig residents.

Every aspect of Craighouse is designed to make the most of the natural setting, including its open lawns, meandering paths, mature woodland and awe-inspiring views. A public woodland walk around the perimeter of the grounds also offers residents and locals an opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery and enjoy the tranquillity of this enviable location.

Offering excellent views of Edinburgh Castle, the Firth of Forth and Arthur’s Seat as well as the Edinburgh skyline, the development achieves the perfect balance between a secluded location and the vibrant buzz of the city.

Craighouse is being developed by Quartermile Developments, the residential arm of the QMile Group. The award-winning team has a wealth of experience in developing new communities in Edinburgh, in particular, marrying old and new buildings within a natural environment to create a unique sense of place.

Qmile Group Sales and Marketing Director, Jan Welsh, said: “We are hugely excited to reveal the very first properties in the magnificent New Craig. A huge amount of time and expertise is going into the restoration of this building which forms the impressive centrepiece of Craighouse.
