An exclusive penthouse, with an eye-watering monthly rental price, is available for Capital tenants says Kirsty McLuckie.

Billed as Edinburgh’s most exclusive rental property it is located on St Andrew Square, in one of its only residential blocks, and has a spectacular roof terrace with 360-degree views across the Capital and over the Firth of Forth.

The view to the terrace.

But renting the flat will set you back over £80,000 for a year’s tenure, not including bills.
The penthouse at 3 St Andrew Square covers more than 4,500 square feet over two floors and its interior combines Manhattan loft living with contemporary Scandinavian design influences inside a Victorian mercantile building.

It is an impressive place, with a large entrance hallway and spiral staircase, two open-plan living areas and beautiful glazed Crittal screens throughout.
Each of the apartment’s three bedroom suites have dressing areas with fitted wardrobes and luxurious bathrooms, plus there is a common-use bathroom.

The upper floor has a glass-fronted living area fitted with air conditioning. The kitchen has fully integrated appliances and stone worktops, a prep kitchen, and a dining area adjoining the spectacular roof terrace.

The penthouse comes with lift access, a parking space with a charging point for an electric vehicle and a storage area.
Gillian McLees, director at letting agent Rettie and Co., says: “The building is institutionally funded and has five apartments. It is the last of the residential offerings on the square.
“The penthouse is not available for holiday or festival let, and has had a tenant for the last three years who has now moved on, so it is a one-off opportunity to live in the best apartment in Edinburgh.”
With a lease price tag of £7,000 per month, it is the most expensive rental property in the Capital, but the prestigious penthouse’s views, its location and the sheer quality of its interiors add up to a very impressive base – for those who don’t suffer from vertigo.
