The historic Donaldson’s building, which was designed by William Playfair as a school for the deaf, is being converted into apartments by City & Country, some of which have equally impressive price tags.

Inspired by the surrounding classic Georgian architecture, The Crescent was designed by Richard Murphy to complement the view of Donaldson’s and beyond to the Pentland Hills.

The penthouse will be finished to a high standard and comes with underground parking, private space outside and access to the landscaped gardens, all within a few minutes walk of the city centre and Haymarket station.
