Gilson Gray are selling a luxury West End penthouse which has great views across the city from its own private roof deck.

This is a restoration project on Melville Crescent and is a very rare opportunity to buy a fully modernised property with really luxurious finishes.

Number 5 Melville Crescent is a sensitively restored property with a long history behind it. The apartment extends over the third and fourth floors of the property with an open plan living space incorporating a kitchen and dining room.

There are two large bedrooms each with an en-suite shower-room, a further bathroom and utility room.

But the most stunning feature is the gallery level which looks over the living space below and which allows access to the private roof deck. At this level it is a perfectly placed area for outside entertaining or relaxing at the end of a long day.

Rob McGregor, Associate Director of Property Sales at Gilson Gray, said: “This is a truly stunning apartment, thanks to both the interior and the exterior, with the amazing roof deck.

“It makes for one of the most enviable positions in the city to take in the sunset and enjoy the incredible views.


“The chance to buy such a property doesn’t come along very often, and it’s even rarer to find one that combines, location, history, sleek design and unique views in the way that the penthouse apartment at 5 Melville Crescent does.”

Added features include video intercom, new engineered chevron parquet flooring, original window which have been fully refurbished and a chef’s kitchen with Siemens appliances and a Qooker three-way hot tap.

Rob continued: “The level of finish in the apartment is exquisite, with all the stylish fittings you’d expect, coupled with the historic elegance that such an incredible building can offer.

“The kitchen has been customised by Kitchens International and is a real eye-catcher, while the sleek and stylish design complements the amazing view and setting perfectly.

“The roof deck provides a special place to enjoy a fantastic view of Edinburgh’s various fireworks displays, such as those set off to celebrate the city’s world-famous Hogmanay celebrations.”

The development is within walking distance of Princes Street Gardens and Murrayfield Stadium with all the convenience of public transport nearby. The Princes Street West End tram stop is very close as is Haymarket Railway Station.

Prices for the apartments start at offers over £535,000 and potential buyers will benefit from the flexible approach adopted by the professional team at Gilson Gray who can offer legal, property and financial advice.
