Boroughmuir - Edinburgh, Scotland
United Kingdom - Property for Sale

Boroughmuir

Designed and built by John Alexander Carfrae in 1912, Boroughmuir is originally the Boroughmuir High School steeped in Edinburgh history. Standing proud in the affluent area of Bruntsfield, the distinctive B-listed building is undergoing an amazing refurbishment as the developer fuses heritage and provenance with a modern twist, to create a unique new collection of contemporary apartments. With most of the one, two- and three-bedroom apartments offering up to 4.5-metre-high ceiling heights within the main living spaces, they are designed to provoke a ‘New York’ loft-apartment feel, further enhanced with the charm and character of the historic Scottish building.
