The Playfair provides you with the best of both worlds - ideally located a short walk away from Haymarket train and tram stations, providing swift and convenient access to Princes Street and the city centre, yet grandly positioned amongst private grounds and set back from West Coates, creating a sense of tranquil exclusivity.

Some of the breathtaking apartments boast almost 2000 sq ft of living space and offer spectacular views of the city’s skyline and Pentland Hills. Additionally, each apartment includes stylish original features such as large historic windows, fireplaces and cornices, alongside a contemporary specification of sleek kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and digital heating systems that can be controlled remotely.

Current prices from £425,000 to £1,695,000. For more information call 0131 341 5102 or visit
