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