Additional Location Info: Next door to the University of Edinburgh Kings Campus entrance

Summary of Project: A very high design new build block of studio apartments. Location is in an affluent suburb of Edinburgh and adjacent to the Edinburgh Universities Engineering and Science Campus – Kings Campus. Free University shuttle buses run from Kings Campus (200 yds away) to the city centre which is only 1.5 miles away.

Braefoot House comprises 83 fully furnished,

purpose built, studio apartments, sited adjacent

to the University of Edinburgh King’s Buildings

Campus. The second phase of development will

deliver a further 83 apartments within an additional


Superior Design

The key focus for this build was to create high end design, both externally and internally, whilst

ensuring that the accommodation was both comfortable and practical for student living; and

this is exactly what has been achieved.

The impressive stone and glass exterior is a welcome addition to this suburb’s landscape, and

is just the start of the outstanding design that sweeps through the development.

On entering the building there is a modern reception area set upon high gloss floors, and the

superior quality finish and attention to detail here sets the tone for the rest of the building.

Internally, each apartment provides comfortable living accommodation and well-designed

study areas, as well as a fully equipped kitchenette and a contemporary bathroom suite.

Braefoot House is set within an affluent suburb of

Edinburgh, just 1.5 miles south of the City’s centre

Close to the picturesque Inch Park, the medieval Craigmillar Castle and two

beautiful golf courses, residents can’t help but be impressed by the

historic buildings and stunning green spaces that surround the


However, the most appealing feature when it comes to

location is the fact that Braefoot House is perfectly sited

for students attending the University of Edinburgh.

This is especially true for those students within the

University’s Engineering and Science Campus (King’s

Buildings Campus), which is just a 5 minute walk

from Braefoot House. The close proximity to this

campus makes this accommodation highly desirable

for those students based at the King’s Building.

Students in edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh is ranked within the

top 20 universities in the world, and its excellent

reputation means it is an extremely popular choice

for students, with in excess of 35,000 students

currently studying there.

Edinburgh as a city also acts as a great pull for students as there really is something for

everyone; from its enviable nightlife, to its beautiful architecture, visitors and residents alike can

always find something to intrigue and excite them within the region.

The City centre also boasts a large array of shops, restaurants, cafes and leisure facilities, and of

course, it is also the home of the Fringe Festival, the world’s largest international arts festival.

The opportunity

The construction of this development will commence in Q1 2017 with a completion date of Q4 2017.

On completion there will be 83 high end studio apartments, each with a net size of between 18m2

and 22m2. These studios will be sold fully furnished, and all of them will be equipped with high

quality fixtures and fittings. Additionally, for peace of mind, as a brand new development the entire

building will be covered with a 10 year crl build warranty.

Each of these luxury studio apartments will be sold on a freehold basis, and as a result buyers can

benefit from the fact that there will be no annual ground rent charged.
