The Playfair at Donaldson’s is one of the most iconic buildings in Edinburgh, and now you could call it home.
City & Country, the UK’s leading developer of heritage buildings, has been working over the past three years to restore and convert the former school into 110 chic apartments.
With the stunning transformation well underway, it is no surprise that more than 2000 people registered to view the first apartments that officially went on sale last month.
These apartments are some of the most exclusive properties in Edinburgh, offering spectacular views of the city’s skyline or of the new parterre gardens surrounding the building.
Prospective buyers can choose from a wide variety of sizes, from studios to three bedroom residences.
Each apartment includes original features such as large historic windows, fireplaces and cornices, alongside a contemporary specification of sleek kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and all the mod-cons expected of high-quality modern living, including digital heating systems that can be controlled remotely.
The Playfair enjoys a prime location in the prestigious Wester Coates area of Edinburgh and is close to all the facilities and amenities of the city centre, making it an ideal choice for professionals, second home owners and downsizers.
Haymarket train and tram stations are a short walk away, providing swift and convenient access to Princes Street and the city centre, or to Edinburgh International Airport which is approximately 13 miles away.
“An Edinburgh icon, this place has been turned into some of the most amazing homes in the city. With views to Edinburgh Castle and the West End on one side, and the Pentland Hills to the other, its fantastic location is matched by its stunning form and detailing. The sky’s the limit here.” said George Clarke, Channel 4’s Restoration Man and City & Country Ambassador.
