2 bedroom apartment



Property description

A ground floor two bedroom mezzanine apartment, situated within the iconic Playfair at Donaldson's. This characterful property offers a spacious kitchen / dining room and separate living room, both double height with exceptional west-facing views across Donaldson's beautifully landscaped grounds. The master bedroom with en-suite and dressing area overlooks the private central courtyard in the heart of The Playfair, whilst the second bedroom faces west. The apartment is offered with 2 allocated underground parking spaces.

The Playfair at Donaldson's is an outstanding building of palatial elegance. With its majestic character and architectural heritage, located on the western boundary of the Edinburgh World Heritage Site, it is recognised as one of the most important landmark buildings in the city. Built in the mid-Nineteenth Century and set within 16 acres of elegant private grounds, The Playfair was designed by renowned Edinburgh architect, William Henry Playfair, who is today widely acknowledged as having given Edinburgh it's distinctive architectural style.

Ideally located just minutes from Edinburgh City Centre, this Category A listed building has been sympathetically restored and converted into a wide range of exceptional studio, 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments by leading heritage developer, City & Country.

Every property within The Playfair benefits from an impressive specification. All flooring, tiling and integrated appliances are included as standard. The contemporary kitchens feature Corian worktops and Siemens appliances, whilst the elegant bathrooms feature Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and brassware from Hansgrohe and Crosswater.

The Playfair occupies an elevated position and enjoys exceptional views of the Edinburgh skyline and the Pentland Hills beyond. Every property also benefits from secure underground parking, a concierge service (subject to stage of development) and full use of the beautifully maintained landscaped grounds.
