New builds: Capital opportunity to live in grandeur

The second phase of apartments at the prestigious £150-million Craighouse development, near Morningside in Edinburgh, has been launched.

Set within 52 acres of open lawns and mature woodlands on Easter Craiglockhart Hill, the New Craig building has unparalleled views across the Capital.

The impressive Baronial-style architecture was designed by renowned Scottish architect Sydney Mitchell in 1889 and was most recently used as a campus for Napier University.

Today, it comprises a total of 44 one, two, three and four-bedroom conversion apartments.
