The Kingsford Residence located on McDonald Road offers residents the opportunity to stay in a former Victorian School building which has been elegantly converted to form one of Edinburgh’s first operational Build to Rent developments. The apartments retain many of the original features of the building while blending them seamlessly with contemporary open plan living and modern fixtures.

Located in the popular area of Broughton, the Kingsford Residence on McDonald Road is within easy walking distance of all that the city centre has to offer; the bars, shops and restaurants of St Andrew Square and George Street (15 minutes), Edinburgh Botanic Gardens (10 minutes) and Waverley Train Station (20 minutes) for those travelling further afield. Residents are encouraged to make use of the local cycle paths, public transport and Enterprise Car Club which operates two spaces immediately outside the building. For those with a car there is a limited amount of free on-street parking available on neighbouring streets just a short walk from the building, or residents will be able to apply for a parking permit. The McDonald Road tram stop at the bottom of the street runs trams every 10 minutes to Edinburgh Airport and Newhaven, and regular services into town.

This apartment is fully furnished and consists of the following features:

Open plan living area with dining space, modern fitted kitchen with granite work surface, energy-efficient induction hob, integrated combination microwave and oven, compact dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine and a washer dryer. Brand new smart TV screens are fitted in every apartment. Crockery and utensils are provided as standard.

Bedroom space located on an open plan mezzanine deck with double bed including under bed storage, fitted wardrobe and dressing table/desk.

Shower room with power shower, marble vanity unit, illuminated mirror and heated towel rail.

Heating and hot water is provided on demand from a centralised system, each apartment features its own Nest thermostat which can also be remotely controlled via a smartphone app. Please note this is not included in the rental but billed on a consumption basis. Energy bills and council tax are the tenants responsibility to take care of.

Superfast fibre broadband is provided via dedicated Wi-Fi access points in each apartment and is also available in the communal areas.

Building, apartment and communal space access is controlled by way of a secure keycard hotel grade access system. All apartments also benefit from a secure video entry system for guest access.

The building also benefits from a number of communal spaces which are available to all residents. These include a newly refurbished spectacular roof terrace with panoramic views across the city, a tiered private garden with seating areas, the Club Room which functions as an elegantly designed resident lounge with large screen TV, coffee bar and plenty space to relax with friends and fellow residents, the Bridge which functions as a co-working space and bookable private dining room with fully fitted kitchen to cater for larger gatherings, and the gym which consists of a functional training studio and separate cardio suite available for 24-hour resident access.

Residents should be aware that the Residence is adjacent to the Broughton Primary School and as such there will be an inevitable level of noise heard from children playing during their breaks. Residents must be willing to accept that an element of noise from the playground forms part of community life in this location given the proximity of the school.

As this apartment consists of a mezzanine deck level and stairs it is unfortunately unsuitable for small children.

The Kingsford Residence operates a strict no-smoking policy in all apartments and throughout the building. We also have pet friendly apartments - contact the team to find out more if this is a requirement.

All tenants are required to complete an application process including a soft credit check, employment and salary verification, as well as previous landlord reference as appropriate.
