Coulters launch exclusive ten apartment development by NORTH

A contemporary development of ten luxurious properties by leading Edinburgh-based developer NORTH offers prospective homebuyers a unique opportunity to own an exceptional apartment in a prime location in Edinburgh’s prestigious Merchiston area. 

This highly innovative development of two and three-bedroom apartments sits on an expansive leafy corner plot where the Royal Ettrick Hotel once stood, bordering Polwarth Terrace and Ettrick Road.  

Over the years, this iconic Victorian mansion house has been owned by an Edinburgh lawyer, a Fife businessman, a Glasgow grain merchant and a Blackhall jute manufacturer. It was latterly bought by a family who turned it into a thriving hotel in 1963. For many years, the Royal Ettrick Hotel was a popular destination for the local community due to its quiet location in a leafy corner of Merchiston overlooking private tennis courts and bowling green. 

Today, 13 Ettrick Road is an excellent addition to one of Edinburgh’s most sought-after neighbourhoods with this exclusive collection of apartments finished to an exceptional specification and all of them benefiting from beautiful landscaping, allocated parking and a private balcony or terrace. 

Providing the perfect balance of modern living and traditional charm, the collection of apartments offers luxurious, light-filled, modern spaces with underfloor heating and contemporary sliding glass doors, to more traditional properties with the same high specification and original features that showcase the high ceilings and gracious bay windows of the original Victorian property.

All properties benefit from engineered oak flooring, which flows through the kitchen, dining and living spaces with rich carpeting in all bedrooms. Woodwork and finishes have been sympathetically designed to reflect the beauty of this historic sandstone building.  The apartments also benefit from smart, zoned thermostats, remote controlled timed heating and a secure video-entry system. 

The interior specification is of the highest level with state-of-the-art appliances throughout. Sleek bespoke kitchens with Neff and Bora appliances as well as luxurious bathrooms and en-suites all featuring underfloor heating, porcelain tiles and feature mirrors. 

Ben di Rollo, director of Coulters, said: “13 Ettrick Road is the absolute epitome of high-end design in a prime location that enjoys close proximity to the city centre of Edinburgh, yet is located in a prime residential area in Merchiston only five minutes from Bruntsfield and Morningside. 

“This progressive and stylish collection of apartments offers buyers an unrivalled combination of custom design, luxurious details and original architectural features. We have already received significant interest prior to launch and excited to bring the development to market.” 

Prices start from £550,000 for a two-bedroom apartment to £950,000 for a duplex three-bedroom apartment.  13 Ettrick Road is currently being sold off plan, please contact the selling agents’ Coulters for further information on 0131 603 7333.
