When you choose a new build in Edinburgh, you’re choosing to live in an ancient landscape that lives and breathes its history, through every winding street and architectural gem. While you will love seeing the castle from everywhere, and enjoy the shopping and easy commuting from Princes Street and Waverley Station, you’ll also appreciate the stunning range of amenities that are on your doorstep.

Culturally, you’ll have events and festivals, exhibitions and gigs every day of the week. Your new home in Edinburgh will give you great sporting and fitness facilities, amazing schools and universities, all within a short walk or bus ride. You could dine out every day of the week and not eat the same cuisine twice. The nightlife, city buzz and cultural richness of a new home in Edinburgh and the Lothians will make you glad you bought your new build, here.

Green space abounds throughout the city from Princes Gardens and along the Royal Mile to Holyrood Park and Arthur’s Seat. The Pentland Hills begin where the Edinburgh ends with 38 square miles of hills, forest and lochs – perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. If you’d prefer the sea, Port Leith is a short walk from the city centre and offers stunning sea views and shopping.

A new property in Edinburgh and the Lothians also gives you access to a thriving economy, including jobs in finance, technology, tourism, and life sciences - so you’re not just buying a new house, you’re securing good career development and prospects for the future, too.

Living in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is on the southern shores of the Firth of Forth where even the bridges that span this great estuary - The Queensferry Crossing, The Forth Road Bridge and the Forth Bridge - are famous. The Pentland Hills Regional Park is the natural boundary to the south, a marker for the protected Green Belt, reserving space around the city. Scotland’s ‘first’ city may be compact, but it has the second largest financial centre after London and is home to Scotland’s second-largest population. The visitor economy plays a key role too, and the world-famous Fringe Festival, the iconic Edinburgh Castle, the stylish Royal Mile and the thriving businesses of Princes Street all play their part. Along with top-class Edinburgh University, this is a city that works, studies and plays well.

First-class communication is a given. Edinburgh Airport, Edinburgh Waverley station, the M8 to Glasgow and the M90 to Perth keep trade and tourism on the move.
