Set in Edinburgh’s renowned west end with its beautiful Georgian buildings, the terraced townhouse enjoys unspoiled views across the city’s iconic skyline, including roof top views to the castle and the Pentland Hills.

Rob McGregor, Associate Director of Property Sales at Gilson Gray, said: “This is a truly stunning apartment, thanks to both the interior and the exterior, with the amazing roof deck.

“It makes for one of the most enviable positions in the city to take in the sunset and enjoy the incredible views.

“The chance to buy such a property doesn’t come along very often, and it’s even rarer to find one that combines, location, history, sleek design and unique views in the way that the penthouse apartment at 5 Melville Crescent does.”

The luxury penthouse apartment stretches over the third and fourth floor of Melville Crescent and boasts a stylish and bright, open plan living space with a kitchen and dining room.

Two large, and tastefully equipped bedrooms, are complimented by an en-suite shower-room, bathroom and utility room.

The gallery level looks over the living space below and leads to the exclusive roof deck which offers the ideal space to relax after a long day at work or a perfectly placed area for outside entertaining.

The apartment has been finished to a high level of contemporary design and craftmanship, with high quality fittings and state-of-the-art technology.

Tech-lovers will appreciate the video intercom while the rooms feature new engineered chevron parquet flooring with fully refurbished, original windows and the fully equipped ‘chefs’ kitchen comes with Siemens appliances and a Qooker three-way hot tap.

Rob continued: “The level of finish in the apartment is exquisite, with all the stylish fittings you’d expect, coupled with the historic elegance that such an incredible building can offer.

“The kitchen has been customised by Kitchens International and is a real eye-catcher, while the sleek and stylish design complements the amazing view and setting perfectly.

“The roof deck provides a special place to enjoy a fantastic view of Edinburgh’s various fireworks displays, such as those set off to celebrate the city’s world-famous Hogmanay celebrations.
