Eagerly awaited Newbattle Terrace site nears completion with the unveiling of their show home, says Kirsty McLuckie

Wemyss Properties’ show home in its development in the heart of Morningside is available for viewing.

The development has attracted a lot of attention as new homes in the very traditional area are rare and the project is a significant one, watched with interest by residents as it takes shape.

50-54 Newbattle Terrace comprises 24 apartments and penthouses, which have already proved popular. Three quarters of the properties have already sold; just six are still available, of which the showhome is one.


The prices of those remaining, two and three-bedroomed ground and first floor flats, range from £575,000 to £765,000. Completion is expected this summer.

Matthew Atton, managing director of Wemyss Properties, says: “This is a significant milestone. It is very exciting to see the end product and we are extremely proud of the result.

“We know that people are keen to see how the development has taken shape and we are delighted now to offer the opportunity to view the showhome.”

Andrew Riddell, associate in Strutt & Parker’s Edinburgh office, says: “It is a measure of the strength of the Edinburgh City market that 75 per cent of the properties at Newbattle Terrace have already sold off-plan.

The showhome is stunning and, after much anticipation, it has been very well-received.”

He adds: “The development features stunning architecture, striking contemporary designs and offers a very high standard of finish while being easy to maintain and manage.”


The apartments are notable for their bright and spacious open-plan layouts and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The flats will benefit from pretty communal gardens, secure undercroft car parking, dedicated storage and lift access.


Riddell says: “It sits in a prime location in Morningside popular for its village feel, abundant choice of restaurants, cafes and shops and proximity to excellent schooling.

“The homes are a particularly strong draw for downsizers looking for luxury and comfort coupled with low maintenance and access to local services.”

Natalie Simpson, director of residential development sales at Savills, adds: “There is a shortage of prime housing in the best locations within Scotland’s housing market.

“Not only is Newbattle Terrace fulfilling a latent demand, but it is exceeding buyer expectations, both in terms of location and the quality of the apartments themselves.


“It is not surprising that they are selling so well: they are after all located on one of the best streets in Edinburgh.”
