HOMEBUYERS looking to move to one of Edinburgh’s best-known buildings will soon have their chance to secure a luxury property in the heart of the city.

Square & Crescent will launch sales for its anticipated Royal Meadows development next month – which will comprise of a mix of premium townhouses and apartments carefully restored in and around the former Royal Hospital for Sick Children building.

Occupying an outstanding location on the edge of The Meadows, one of Edinburgh’s most famous parks, this unique development will include a mix of one, two, and three bedroom apartments, four bedroom penthouses and four and five bedroom townhouses.

The high-quality homes sit on a four-acre site directly opposite The Meadows, one of Edinburgh’s best-known landmarks, and lie between Sciennes Road and Rillbank Crescent.

Euan Marshall, Co-Founder and Joint Managing Director said: “We’ve recognised from day one that taking on a building that has so much history and profile is a major responsibility – and one that our team has embraced.

“To get to this stage has taken a huge amount of craftsmanship, but the result is homes that will be beautiful and characterful at a location that will offer buyers the very best of Edinburgh.

“We’re really thrilled to be able to bring the first homes to market in the coming weeks.”

The Royal Meadows sales suite is set to open next month, with phase one including the sales launch of 22 properties from a one-bedroom apartment to a five-bedroom three storey townhouse. Construction on the residential development is set to be fully completed in around two years from now.

Nestled in the heart of Marchmont and The Grange area of Edinburgh, the Royal Meadows development is well-connected – just one mile from Princes Street and a short walk from Lothian Road.

The premium residential developer also recently announced a fitting charity partnership with Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC) – which helps seriously ill babies, children and young people in Edinburgh and the Lothians by supporting their medical care, mental health and family’s wellbeing. ECHC’s former headquarters is one of the buildings being converted as part of the major Royal Meadows development.

Simon Cook, Co-Founder and Joint Managing Director said: “We appreciate that the hospital building itself means a lot of different things to a lot of different people and that’s why it’s important for us to carefully restore it as we respect its history and look to do the building justice. Thanks to the ongoing dedication of the team and skilled local contractors for their commitment in the restoration.

“This important milestone marks a major chapter in the development timeline. It won’t be long until people can enjoy their new homes at Royal Meadows.”
