Craighouse is a blend of old and new, offering both secluded tranquillity and convenient urban living. The development, located near Morningside in south Edinburgh, is set within 52 acres of mature woodland and occupies a magnificent elevated position on Easter Craiglockhart Hill.
The oldest of the historic buildings at Craighouse dates back to the 16th century, and over the centuries the site has been a location for hospital buildings and a university. The site is being developed by Quartermile Developments, the residential arm of Edinburgh-based property developer Qmile Group.
When complete, the development will comprise a mix of 145 townhouses, penthouses, duplexes, and apartments. Many properties will have panoramic outlook and the development offers an unrivalled view of Edinburgh’s landmarks including the Castle, the Firth of Forth, and Arthur’s Seat.
The first purchasers have now moved into the conversion properties in Bevan, South Craig and East Craig creating one of the most desirable new communities in Edinburgh. These buildings have been restored whilst retaining many historical features including fireplaces, stained glass and cornices.
The latest release of conversion properties is New Craig, the iconic building at the heart of the development. New Craig’s centrepiece is the Great Hall, erected in the Scots Baronial style, which will offer a social space for the exclusive use by New Craig residents. Prices for a two-bedroomed apartment currently start at £459,000.
Jan Welsh, Sales and Marketing Director at Quartermile Developments, says: “Craighouse has been extremely popular since its launch. 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.”
“Craighouse offers a range of properties from conversion to new build, apartments to townhouses. A development of this nature offers purchases a truly rare opportunity to live in what is undeniably one of the most unique locations the city has to offer.”
