Scottish Field - - NEW HOMES -

TWO ea­gerly-awaited show apart­ments are pre­par­ing to open their doors to buy­ers at an ex­clu­sive new res­i­dency in the heart of one of Ed­in­burgh’s most en­vied lo­ca­tions. Home­buy­ers will fi­nally be able to step into and ex­pe­ri­ence how life could be at the stun­ning new show apart­ments in their im­pres­sive set­ting at The Cres­cent by CALA Homes (East), si­t­u­ated within Don­ald­son’s, one of the most iconic es­tates in Ed­in­burgh’s his­toric New Town.

The Cres­cent of­fers a range of two and three-bed­room prop­er­ties and very lim­ited one-bed­room apart­ments due later in the de­vel­op­ment, all over­look­ing the Don­ald­son’s es­tate si­t­u­ated within Ed­in­burgh’s cel­e­brated UN­ESCO World Her­itage site.

Buy­ers are be­ing en­cour­aged to sign up and regis­ter their in­ter­est now in or­der to be one of first to see in­side these one-of-a-kind show apart­ments.

The de­sign of the two show apart­ments has been in­spired not only by the build­ing it­self but its out­stand­ing sur­round­ings, led by multi-award­win­ning Alexan­der James in­te­rior de­sign­ers.

Alexan­der James have been recog­nised as one of the World’s Top 100 In­te­rior De­sign­ers for three con­sec­u­tive years in the An­drew Martin Re­view, which is known as the Os­cars of the de­sign world, and were a per­fect fit for this re­mark­able de­sign project.

Stacey Si­b­ley, Cre­ative Di­rec­tor at Alexan­der James, said: ‘It has been a joy to work with CALA at this ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic set­ting, and on such a unique build­ing.

‘The in­spi­ra­tion for the de­sign came from the tra­di­tional ar­chi­tec­tural style of Ed­in­burgh’s sur­round­ing Ge­or­gian cres­cents – but with a very con­tem­po­rary twist.

‘Cres­cent-shaped streets al­lowed peo­ple to cre­ate build­ings with open spa­ces and gar­dens within cities, so a nat­u­ral palette of colours was a huge in­flu­ence in the de­sign.’

The ar­chi­tec­ture of The Cres­cent has been di­rectly in­flu­enced by Ed­in­burgh’s fa­mous Ge­or­gian cres­cents, with the show apart­ments boast­ing the open views and in­no­va­tive de­sign fea­tures this clas­sic style af­fords.

Paired with an im­pres­sive glass façade are gen­er­ous flow­ing spa­ces, en­hanced height liv­ing ar­eas and dy­namic lev­els and with each apart­ment of­fer­ing a dual-as­pect liv­ing ar­range­ment, The Cres­cent uniquely com­bines clas­sic de­sign with mod­ern style.

Stacey added: ‘It re­ally is a stun­ning de­vel­op­ment. You don’t ex­pe­ri­ence the full im­pact of it un­til you’re ac­tu­ally on the grounds. We’re so ex­cited to see it all come to­gether.’

De­signed by Richard Mur­phy OBE, the sweep­ing curve of 84 premium city apart­ments sits within the 18 acres of grounds of the city’s iconic Don­ald­son’s es­tate, near Hay­mar­ket sta­tion.

The vast front lawn and panoramic views over Ed­in­burgh’s cityscape and to­wards the Pent­land Hills be­yond, com­bined with pri­vate ter­races and gar­den to the tree-lined rear of­fers buy­ers an idyl­lic ru­ral es­cape – whilst still be­ing in the heart of the cap­i­tal.

Philip Hogg, Sales and Mar­ket­ing Di­rec­tor for CALA Homes (East), said: ‘It’s re­ally get­ting ex­cit­ing now that we’re edg­ing closer to the launch of these ex­cep­tional show apart­ments.

‘The very tal­ented team at Alexan­der James were a per­fect fit in mak­ing these show apart­ments a re­al­ity – we can’t wait to see the fin­ished prod­uct.

‘We’d urge those in­ter­ested in view­ing to regis­ter their in­ter­est with us, to en­sure they are first to see in­side the apart­ments and have the chance to ex­pe­ri­ence what life could be like at The Cres­cent.’

Priced from £950,000 to £1,925,000, The Cres­cent com­prises some of the city’s most sought-af­ter new res­i­dences, with early de­mand high.

CALA Homes, part of the CALA Group, is a ma­jor UK home builder fo­cused on build­ing well-de­signed, high qual­ity homes in prime lo­ca­tions through­out the South of Eng­land, the Mid­lands and Scot­land.
