The apartments comprise five magnificent, two bedroom conversion and new build homes. With luxurious finishes and beautiful styling, perfectly in keeping with the architecture of each of the two buildings, these apartments offer a rare opportunity in one of Edinburgh’s most sought after addresses.
The conversion apartments are situated on the ground, first and second floors of the B listed ‘Mackenzie House’, part of the Edinburgh Academy Boarding Houses, dating from 1910 and designed by former pupil Ramsay Traquair. The Arts & Crafts style of the building reflects the influence of Robert Lorimar, in whose offices Traquair worked. These apartments feature the desirable grand proportions and charming character of a period home, but with the efficiency of an easily maintained new home.
In a beautiful purpose-built, blonde sandstone building, designed by award winning Edinburgh architects Morgan McDonnell, two further apartments are available.
These wonderful new build properties are situated on the second and third floors and have lift access, floor to ceiling glazing to public rooms and exceptional south facing balconies, affording uninterrupted views and look out over the Edinburgh Academy playing fields and beyond to Edinburgh Castle and the iconic city skyline of Edinburgh Old Town.
