The main bedroom has a dedicated dressing area and ensuite, while the second has a built-in wardrobe and ensuite.Bedroom three is slightly smaller and would make an ideal office.

Although there has been sell-out success for the development’s initial release of townhouses, the four-bedroom Anderson townhouse showhome has also been unveiled.

With an open-plan kitchen and dining area designed for everyday living, Cala Homes says the ground floor space offers a hub in which families can relax and catch-up.

Building on their success, further releases of the townhouses are expected next year.

Phillip Hogg, Cala Homes’ sales and marketing director, says: “Newington Residences is a truly beautiful and unique development, and one we are immensely proudof – our townhouses and apartments have been carefully designed to complement and enhance the historic setting and offer our customers the perfect example of contemporary living.

“The popularity of the initial release of townhouses has demonstrated the demand for this house type in Edinburgh – it and we expect the interest in our apartments to be equally high.

“The range and quality of product available, as well as the outstanding location, make Newington Residences a popular choice and we are delighted to now be able to welcome people to experience these homes for themselves with the opening of our show homes.”

The development is a ten-minute drive to Edinburgh city centre and there are frequent bus services available.
