AN EXCEPTIONAL development in Edinburgh is offering buyers a taste of the great outdoors with its luxury garden apartments.

The newly available garden properties at The Crescent by CALA Homes (East) boast ample room inside and out, with a spacious private garden at the front and rear of the homes.

Benefiting from an enhanced height living area leading on to the front terrace, the homes enjoy views of the iconic Playfair building and the city beyond, while the secluded garden to the rear offers a tranquil urban escape.

Perfect for entertaining or relaxing in finer weather, buyers will be able to create their dream idyllic retreat by making use of a landscaped garden package – made bespoke by Edinburgh-based landscapers Land Technology.

With only one garden apartment currently available to reserve, priced at £1,020,000, buyers will have act quickly to snap up the three-bedroom luxury apartment with a fully landscaped garden in Edinburgh’s West End.

Colin Smith, Managing Director at Land Technology, said: “We can create something which is totally unique to each client, which really makes the garden apartments at The Crescent something special.

“No two gardens are the same so the materials we use might change from time to time but I like to harmonise them with the surroundings – so we use sandstone paving or granite to match the building material.

“I will always visit the site myself to assess the space, what kind of light or shade the garden has, shapes and angles too.

“Most importantly we use very high-quality materials and plants and make sure the ones selected are suitable for their environments to give them the best chance of thriving.

“We’re really looking forward to undertaking more design projects for future buyers at The Crescent.”

Situated in the grounds of the Donaldson’s estate, residents of The Crescent’s garden apartments will not only enjoy their own private outdoor spaces, but will also reside within the capital’s largest communal garden.

Phillip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “The homes at The Crescent offer buyers something completely unique and the garden apartments are certainly no different.

“Creating a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life without sacrificing on location, these homes offer the finest in contemporary luxury living.

“With only one garden apartment currently available, we would urge those interested to visit the development to view the space on offer for themselves.

“Land Technology has created a fantastic outdoor area to demonstrate just how your new garden could look and our team at The Crescent would be delighted to chat more about this package on offer to our buyers.”

The en-suite master bedroom and two further double bedrooms, one of which could easily be adapted into a home office, make the home suitable for a range of buyers – from professionals to downsizers looking for extra space for visiting family.

A bright, fully-fitted kitchen leads to the generous family area, with the intimate dining area and luxury bathroom – as well as a utility room and generous storage throughout – completing the 1,733 sq. ft. accommodation.

A bold and sweeping arc of 84 enhanced height, glass-fronted apartments, The Crescent is nestled to the private rear of Edinburgh’s iconic Donaldson’s estate, situated within the city’s celebrated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Designed by acclaimed architect Richard Murphy OBE, The Crescent comprises some of Edinburgh’s most sought-after new residences.

A range of apartments, duplexes and penthouses are available for sale with current prices starting at £950,000.

Two show apartments are available to view daily. For more information, or to register interest in The Crescent development visit: or call 0131 341 2667.
