A STUNNING top-floor apartment with vast ceiling heights and unobstructed views of Edinburgh castle has been released for sale at one of the capital’s most sought-after new developments.

CALA Homes (East) has revealed the launch of one of its top-floor three-bedroom apartments at Boroughmuir, featuring an extraordinary living space with a ceiling that is almost 3 times the height of a standard room in a new build home.

On the market for £845,000, the property is one of 87 apartments created from the refurbishment of the former Boroughmuir High School.

CALA is fully furnishing the apartment to give buyers an authentic taste of what life would be like in the stand-out home.

The new “view home” is now available for home hunters to view at the development, in addition to the showhome.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (East), said: “We can guarantee that this top floor home will not disappoint. The extraordinary height of the ceiling with original feature beams and the abundance of character it offers, gives this apartment a real loft feel – it’s an entirely unique feature that we have been careful to preserve.

“The ideal location of Boroughmuir– just minutes from The Meadows in vibrant Bruntsfield – means residents will be able to live within a highly desirable community with artisan and independent businesses, as well as plenty of restaurants and bars. Buyers will also benefit from being well-connected to the city centre.”

Once a Chemistry classroom, Plot 75 perfectly balances character with the high specification and finish of a contemporary city apartment.

The home has an expansive open plan living space with vaulted roof and original feature beams. Adding to the impressive living space are remote controlled electric rooflights to the upper level, maximising the light that extends throughout the property.

Plot 75 also features a generous main bedroom with crescent south-facing windows, a dressing area and an en-suite bathroom.

This breathtaking area leads to a spacious upper hall, with plenty of space for a relaxing reading area or dressing table. Two south facing lower rooms offer the flexibility of additional bedrooms, hobby room or home office.

With beautiful crescent-shaped sash and case windows, buyers will enjoy an abundance of light in this bright and welcoming home.

Silestone worktops in the kitchen and the sleek breakfast bar are the finishing touches to the sophisticated living offered by the property.

Boroughmuir, nestled in Bruntsfield in the south of Edinburgh, is regarded as one of the Scottish capital’s most iconic school buildings, constructed pre-WWI between 1911 and 1914.

The Grade B listed building is the innovative creation of renowned architect John Alexander Carfrae and was notably one of the first in Edinburgh to utilise a steel frame for architecture.

Each of the Boroughmuir apartments has allocated parking with access to electric vehicle charging points and to a relaxing private residents’ courtyard.
