EH4 Residential Sales Update

EH4 Residential Sales Update


The West of Edinburgh brings together the best of suburban living with the geographic proximity to city centre living. This enviable blend makes the EH4 postcode one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, where comfortable family life with easy access to excellent public and private schools, leisure activities, and the countryside is juxtaposed with a closeness to the thrum of Edinburgh’s city centre.

With a large array of flats, semi-detached, and detached family homes, it is not surprising that EH4 is hugely popular with homebuyers. Average house prices in this area broke through the £300,000 boundary for the first time in 2018. Over the last five years, the average house price has increased by over 25%.

This lovely section of Edinburgh is highly desirable among homebuyers across all stages of their property journey. Max Mills, Director of Residential Sales, notes that the area’s popularity is “getting more desirable because of a wealth of excellent amenities, a broad cross section of homes, and some of the best schools Edinburgh has to offer.”
