Located on the elevated position of Easter Craiglockhart Hill in Morningside, Craighouse is a £100m development by Quartermile Developments comprised of 145 contemporary homes expected to open for residence in early 2019. This collection of luxurious townhouses, penthouses, and apartments are set within 52-acres of historic wood and parkland that has been part of Edinburgh’s fabric for over 400 years. Craighouse boasts outstanding views of Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, and the Edinburgh skyline. Inside the wide range of properties, contemporary and distinct open-plan layouts will provide flexible spaces with a light and spacious flow. Interiors feature designer kitchens and bathrooms with the highest quality fixtures and finishes throughout.
Designed by renowned architect Sydney Mitchell, South Craig is established within a historic Victorian building and offers three exceptionally spacious apartments and a townhouse, all with spectacular views. East Craig is an elegant villa converted into two exclusive properties while Bevan will form one magnificent home. The completed buildings will retain many original features and notable architectural details.
The building works to restore these three magnificent Grade A listed have reached a significant milestone with the unveiling of the repaired and refurbished roofs to East Craig, South Craig, and Bevan. This work has taken months of careful and meticulous restoration and four further buildings will undergo renovation as part of the site’s development.
Quartermile Developments Sales and Marketing Director, Jan Welsh said: “We are delighted to unveil the completed roofs of these historic buildings. These listed properties are being painstakingly restored and converted offering buyers a truly exceptional collection of homes.”
“The conversion buildings at Craighouse contain many sought after features seldom found in such a setting and location and the completion of the roofs on South Craig, East Craig, and Bevan marks a real milestone at the development.”
Specialist local tradesmen have re-laid slate to all three buildings, which date back to the late 1800s, using the buildings’ original roofing alongside conservation slate to bring these buildings back to their former glory.
