Introducing the
development

About the property

235 Corstorphine Road presents a total of 31 apartments spread across an innovative combination of a refurbished listed building and a new build property.

All of the 22 apartments in the new build are 2 bedroomed, while the refurbished building offers a mix of 2 and 3 bedroom options within the 9 apartments.

Outside

235 Corstorphine Road ties together historic and modern elements in one harmoniously designed development for forward-thinking homeowners.

The Grade B listed building has south-facing terraces looking out towards the Pentland Hills, and large windows letting in plenty of natural light, with double glazing producing high levels of thermal efficiency.

High quality, durable materials lend the building a simple, modern aesthetic, including Staffordshire Smooth Crimson brickwork and dark zinc metal cladding with robust seams.

The landscaped setting is enhanced with newly-planted trees, hedges and shrubs to create a garden feel, with contrasting block paving used to delineate the parking and pedestrian areas.

Inside

Inside the buildings the touchstones are sophisticated, bold and elegant refurbished interiors, complementing the buildings’ architectural features.

From the handleless German kitchens by Kitchens International with integrated Siemens appliances; to luxury bathrooms with Duravit sanitary ware; to matt lacquered oak flooring and luxury deep piled carpets in all the bedrooms. With recessed LED lighting in the kitchens and bathrooms; to double glazing throughout, 235CR leaves no page unturned in its pursuit of presenting the perfect home.

This is complemented by little touches such as pendant lights and traditional satin nickel door-knobs and numbers throughout. In the new build property, there is lift access from the ground floor to all apartments on the upper floors.

The Area:
The Best of the West

235 Corstorphine Road is situated to the west of central Edinburgh, making it a handy hub to get the most out of Scotland's capital. The tranquil suburb of Corstorphine offers prime access to many of Edinburgh's best amenities.

It's so ideally placed that just minutes from your door you can reach Edinburgh Zoo, Edinburgh International Airport, Murrayfield Rugby Stadium, the West End, the city centre and much more besides.

Getting Around

Corstorphine's enviable transport connections make it a popular choice for commuters. Its proximity to the M8 and M9 motorways makes it well placed for those driving to Glasgow, Stirling, Fife and the north.

Regular bus services take you into the city centre, with Edinburgh's Haymarket, Waverley and South Gyle train stations on hand too.

Edinburgh Airport is only 4.5 miles away, connecting you with some 100 destinations worldwide.

Shopping

A ten minute journey will get you to the prime shopping zones of George Street, Princes Street and the designer centre of Multrees Walk – home to the likes of Harvey Nichols, Burberry and Louis Vuitton.

The Gyle Shopping Centre is within easy reach, providing you with high street names and excellent customer parking.

Corstorphine caters for all your day-to-day needs, including a public library, community centre and a small retail park that's home to Curry's PC World and Pets at Home, with a Tesco Superstore nearby too.

Dining

Edinburgh is firmly established as a dining hotspot, serving practically every type of cuisine imaginable, with three Michelin-starred restaurants to be found in the capital and scores of worthy contenders.

Dining options range from the likes of the simple canteen style of the Indian Mosque Kitchen, to the classic elegance of the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, to the Michelin-starred restaurant Martin Wishart and from the quirky, contemporary bistro fare served at the dogs to the wood-panelled opulence of the historic Witchery.

Green Spaces & Days Out

Families will have no shortage of places to while away their weekends.

Edinburgh Zoo is internationally famous for being the only place in Britain where you can watch a pair of giant pandas and koalas. Then there's the inquisitive meerkats, lounging sun bears and of course the penguins, which are taken out for their daily wander on the unmissable penguin parade!

You'll probably want to stroll to the top of Corstorphine Hill to enjoy a pleasant woodland walk, where you might spot some birds known to frequent the area, including meadow pippits, skylarks and spotted flycatchers.

For active types, the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena at Ratho is not far, nor is the Hillend Dry Ski Slopes. Golfers are spoilt for choice too, since they can choose from a number of nearby courses, including Murrayfield, Carrick Knowe and Ravelston.

Arts & Culture

Edinburgh city centre is a vibrant cultural hub, offering a wealth of galleries, theatres, museums and exciting attractions year-round.

Each August the city hosts the world's largest arts festival, comprising the renowned Edinburgh International Festival, thousands of shows at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the ever-popular spectacle of the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
