Three iconic, be­spoke homes in a se­cluded prime lo­ca­tion in Scot­land’s cap­i­tal

Scottish Field - - NEW HOMES -

Arare op­por­tu­nity to in­flu­ence the de­sign of your own lux­u­ri­ous, be­spoke home in a beau­ti­ful wood­land set­ting in the cen­tre of Ed­in­burgh has been launched to the mar­ket by Sav­ills. De­signed by award-win­ning Michael Laird Ar­chi­tects and with a pri­vate gated drive­way, dou­ble garage, dou­ble height ceil­ings and spi­ral stair­case, th­ese homes are as beau­ti­ful as the wood­land set­tings sur­round­ing them.

The ex­clu­sive Ravel­ston III de­vel­op­ment, just two miles west of Princes Street, is be­ing cre­ated by AMA, the prop­erty com­pany be­hind some of the city’s most iconic res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial build­ings de­vel­oped in Scot­land’s cap­i­tal over the past 35 years.

AMA’s award-win­ning ar­chi­tects Michael Laird have de­signed just three in­cred­i­bly spa­cious beau­ti­ful homes in a se­cluded en­clave op­po­site Ravel­ston Golf Course. Each is com­pletely in­di­vid­ual yet their ex­te­ri­ors, con­structed in care­fully sourced, high qual­ity glass, sand­stone and slate, com­ple­ment one an­other and blend seam­lessly into the wood­land, water­side and hill­side of their nat­u­ral sur­round­ings. Each home will stand in al­most one acre of land­scaped gar­dens.

The own­ers of th­ese spe­cial prop­er­ties will have the op­por­tu­nity to work with the de­sign­ers to in­flu­ence the lay­out of the in­te­ri­ors which all boast dra­matic floor to ceil­ing win­dows, spi­ral stair­cases and dou­ble height rooms.

Behnam Af­shar of AMA said: “We an­tic­i­pate work­ing with dis­cern­ing clients who are likely to have their own ideas about how they would like to live their lives in this ex­cep­tional spot. The in­ter­nal lay­out of each home at Ravel­ston III is ex­tremely flex­i­ble: the five be­d­rooms, three large re­cep­tion rooms and enor­mous dou­ble garage can all be re­con­fig­ured to in­cor­po­rate gyms, cin­e­mas, home of­fices, stud­ies or mu­sic rooms - depend­ing on each buy­ers’ in­di­vid­ual as­pi­ra­tions.”

Jo McLaren, Sav­ills Res­i­den­tial De­vel­op­ment Sales Team Man­ager in Ed­in­burgh said: ‘For­merly part of the Ravel­ston House es­tate, Ravel­ston III is en­closed by man­aged wood­land with con­nect­ing foot­paths to Ravel­ston Park and Ravel­ston Woods. It is quite in­cred­i­ble that this spa­cious, green space is lo­cated so close to the fi­nan­cial dis­trict of Ed­in­burgh’s West End as well to as a host of first-class ameni­ties, in­clud­ing some the city’s most pres­ti­gious schools. Ravel­ston III will be of ap­peal to buy­ers look­ing to in­vest in the very best res­i­den­tial real es­tate in the city and will be of in­ter­est to su­per-com­muters who need to ac­cess Ed­in­burgh air­port, just 6 miles away.

‘avills’ lat­est re­search re­veals Ed­in­burgh has one of the best per­form­ing mar­kets in the UK, with the New Town and the West End record­ing more mil­lion­pound sales than any other lo­ca­tion in Scot­land. Fur­ther growth is an­tic­i­pated over the next five years. Scot­land’s cap­i­tal is a global city in great de­mand by virtue of its bur­geon­ing fi­nan­cial and tech sec­tors and rep­u­ta­tion as one of the best places to live and work in the world.’

Ravel­ston ben­e­fits from a host of nearby lo­cal ameni­ties in­clud­ing the Gal­leries of Mod­ern Art, ex­cel­lent shop­ping at Craigleith, Comely Bank and Stock­bridge and ex­cel­lent school­ing at Fettes, Ersk­ine Stewart’s Melville Schools among oth­ers. There is good road ac­cess west­wards to the city by­pass, Ed­in­burgh Air­port and Cen­tral Scot­land mo­tor­way net­work.

AMA have been at the fore­front of res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment in Ed­in­burgh for over 35 years. In that time, they have con­verted many iconic prop­er­ties and cre­ated land­mark build­ings that have helped shape the ar­chi­tec­tural land­scape of the city.
