“While the three townhouses were in a sad state of repair when purchased by Square and Crescent, they included stunning plasterwork throughout. This was an incredible transformation and the finished product has provided extremely elegant yet contemporary apartments. The craftsmanship that has gone into this conservation project has been incredible, particularly the in regards to the plasterwork to the cornicing in the ground floor apartments.”
These three B Listed Georgian townhouses located in the west end of Edinburgh were previously used as offices. The brief was to convert them into 11 luxury apartments. These classically detailed properties have been sensitively converted, with all original period details being restored and refurbished as well as original features such as fireplaces being re-instated. The quality of the original features and the split levels created stunning and unique apartments for their occupants.
The three-bedroom double uppers include views over the cathedral and mature trees to the west, the grand first floor apartments were transformed into chic one-bedrooms and the ground and gardens were converted into a mix of two- and four-bed apartments. The lower ground floor garden apartments include contemporary extensions to the rear constructed in zinc, glass and ashlar stonework, which have been slotted into the existing stone and slate outshots.
