Luxury penthouse near zoo released for sale

Buyers can now reserve the luxury penthouse apartment at Dandara’s popular Pinkhill Gate development near Edinburgh Zoo and Murrayfield Rugby Stadium.

Just released for sale, the three bedroom Lerwick apartment makes the most of the views of the capital skyline with a spectacular dual aspect open plan lounge, dining area and kitchen.

Tony Williamson, Sales Director for Dandara East Scotland, said: “The penthouse apartment is the only one of its kind in the development and has amazing views of the surrounding area. It offers a rare opportunity to purchase a home tucked away in a quiet, leafy location yet just a short distance from the centre of the Scottish Capital.

“It would be a fantastic property for someone who is downsizing from a large home in the surrounding area, relocating from overseas or indeed for a property investor, with an estimated rental yield of around 5%. Edinburgh was recently ranked second in Colliers’ influential Top UK Residential Investment Cities report thanks to factors like its diverse economy, highly skilled workforce, leisure attractions and positive house price growth.”

The penthouse features a welcoming reception hall with large store cupboard leading into the bright living space with beautifully finished contemporary kitchen, and the three bedrooms. The impressive main bedroom features a walk in wardrobe and ensuite shower room and bedroom two also has its own ensuite, ideal for guests staying over. The property also benefits from allocated parking and cycle storage.

Priced at £524,995, the Lerwick comes with a choice of flooring or £5,000 towards LBTT (Land and Buildings Transaction Tax).

Buyers can experience a snapshot of the lifestyle on offer in Pinkhill Gate by visiting the recently launched Kirkwall two bedroom show apartment, which highlights the high quality and specification of the homes which come with a wide choice of kitchens, tiles and finishes.

Pinkhill Gate will feature contemporary one, two and three bedroom apartments when complete. Properties currently available for reservation at the development include the one bedroom Rothesay from £243,995. It comes with a choice of incentives – buyers can opt for free flooring throughout or LBTT paid.

Also available is a two bedroom Portree from £247,995 and the Bowmore, also a two bed, from £328,995, both of which come with a 5% deposit contribution from Dandara. A third floor Kirkwall apartment with two bedrooms is priced from £343,995.

Apartments include a contemporary kitchen with oven, hob, integrated cooker hood, fridge freezer and integrated washer dryer. Some of the larger apartments will also include a dishwasher.

Internally, the apartment interiors will boast modern layouts and stylish finishes, while retaining a timelessness well suited to being a part of Scotland’s most historical city. Each of the apartments will have an EPC rating of B.

Pinkhill Gate is just a short walk from Edinburgh Zoo, which is home to more than 2,500 animals from around the world. Murrayfield Stadium, the centre for the Scottish Rugby Union, is just over a mile away offering world class rugby matches including the Guinness Six Nations, along with concerts from some of the globe’s top artists and bands.

The development is nestled between some of West Edinburgh’s finest green spaces such as Saughton Rose Garden and Corstorphine Hill, and is a short walk from the picturesque Water of Leith walkway. The apartments are also close to some high-ranking schools and educational establishments like The Mary Erskine School and St George’s Nursey School.

Walking around the area, buyers will encounter breath-taking 200-year-old Georgian houses, some of the finest in Edinburgh, and an establishment like Dine Murrayfield, on the banks of the Water of Leith, is just one of many go to locations which make up the vibrant and exciting amenities of the local area.
