The Playfair at Donaldson's

Property of the month: The Playfair at Donaldson's

2 Mins

For city centre living, we’re dreaming of a stylish pad at The Playfair at Donaldson’s.

Set amidst 18 acres of elegant grounds and just minutes from Haymarket station, the Playfair building - built in the 1840s and designed in the style of an Elizabethan palace no less - dominates the development and it’s seriously impressive.

But don’t just take our word for it. Award-winning heritage developer City & Country has done such a great job transforming the historic building into beautifully restored apartments that the conversion has already been recognised with no fewer than four major awards last year from Scottish Home Awards, the WhatHouse? Awards and The Herald Property Awards. We suggest you check it out.
