Over £24 million of property has been reserved at Craighouse, the site formerly occupied by Edinburgh Napier with panoramic views over the city.

Set in 52 acres of woodland there are both converted homes and new build to choose from. Eventually there will be 145 townhouses, penthouses, duplexes and apartments.

The first purchasers have moved in to some of the converted properties in South and East Craig both of which have many historical features which have been retained.

Prices start at £520,000 for a two bedroom apartment.

Quartermile Developments Sales and Marketing Director, Jan Welsh, said: “There has been a huge amount of interest in Craighouse. 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.

“Our soaring sales success demonstrates a strong desire from buyers to act quickly to ensure they secure a home in what is a truly unique Edinburgh development.

“Craighouse is setting new standards for Category A listed conversions within the city and beyond. We are delighted to see the first occupiers move into their properties and look forward to seeing the Craighouse community grow in the coming months.”

The next properties to be released for sale will be located at the heart of the development, in New Craig, which is the largest and most iconic building on the site. The centrepiece of New Craig is the Great Hall which was built in the Baronial style and provides an exceptional social space. This spectacular hall will be preserved for the exclusive use of New Craig residents.

Jan added: “Every detail of Craighouse has been carefully considered to ensure the new buildings blend seamlessly with their historic surroundings. This ranges from the use of brick and stone to the scale and design of the windows.

“This, combined with, open lawns, woodland walks, awe-inspiring views and a location that’s right on the doorstep of the city, makes this undeniably one of the most unique and special locations to live in Edinburgh.”
