Philip Hogg, Sales and Marketing Director with CALA Homes (East), said: “The one-bedroom apartment offers everything you could need for contemporary city living and more, being so closely situated to all of the attractions, landmarks, restaurants and bars in the capital.

“However, it also enjoys a peacefully secluded location within the Donaldson’s estate, with gardens and grounds on the doorstep and the tree-lined rear of the development. So you really have the best of both worlds.

Designed by renowned architect, Richard Murphy OBE, the flat has “enhanced height” living areas, and features floor-to-ceiling glass walls, a private terrace, and an underground parking space.

Donaldson’s School

Designed by renowned architect, Richard Murphy OBE, the flat has “enhanced height” living areas, and features floor-to-ceiling walls, a private terrace, and an underground parking space.

The building of Donaldson’s started in 1842, after local newspaper publisher James Donaldson bequeathed his estate to establish a hospital for children after his death.

Opened by Queen Victoria in 1850, Donaldson’s School was an architectural landmark in Edinburgh’s West End.

It was designed by renowned architect William Henry Playfair, whose other landmark buildings in Edinburgh include the Scottish National Gallery on The Mound.

After more than 150 years in the building, Donaldson’s School sold the property to CALA Homes in 2002, and moved to a new campus in Linlithgow in 2008.

The Crescent has the most comprehensive electric vehicle charging provision in Scotland, where every property has access to a charging point in the private underground car park.
