Overview

Melville Street offers six high-specification apartments in the desirable city centre location of Edinburgh’s West End, within easy walking distance of George Street for shopping, Stockbridge for dining and the Water of Leith for walking.

These four-storey townhouses are a classic terrace which has been converted into opulent modern apartments. Showcasing Edinburgh’s finest residences, these impressive apartments promise high ceilings and delicate interiors suited to taste. Each apartment also comes with the added benefit of a parking space, which is available by separate negotiation.

At Square and Crescent, we are well known for our expertise in transforming historic buildings for residential use across Edinburgh’s West End and New Town areas. Melville Street is no exception. It's a sympathetic, design-led conversion, with interiors carefully styled for a contemporary palate.

Apartments, Design & Spec

These original townhouses, which were completed in 1823, are a classic four storey terrace. The property has been lovingly converted into luxurious modern apartments offering grand rooms with some beautiful period details.

The French doors are one particular highlight. These lead out to south-facing balconies with glass barriers which give the apartments plenty of sunlight.

Living areas on the first floor are generously proportioned, with lofty ceilings and highly ornate cornicing cementing the sense of grandeur. They come complete with focal point gas fireplaces alongside floor to ceiling sash and case windows that allow natural light to flood in. There is also direct access to a large kitchen for maximum convenience.

Shopping

The West End of Edinburgh is a smart, upmarket place to live and work, with some of the city's best independent shopping. Besides the prime retail areas of Princes Street, George Street and Multrees Walk within easy walking distance, there's William Street, one of Edinburgh's most pleasant places for idle wandering, with no shortage of interesting boutiques and cafes to browse around.

The urban village of Stockbridge, just a ten-minute stroll from the West End, retains an arty, Bohemian vibe, thanks to its cluster of galleries, wine bars, coffee shops, artisan delis, upmarket charity shops and independent food stores.

Dining & Drinking

The area is home to a range of international cuisines, hosting Swedish artisan bakery Söderberg alongside French offering L’Escargot Blanc. Nearby you can also visit Affogato Ice Cream Bar, a local institution where you can treat yourself to an Irn Bru gelato made from the celebrated Scottish soft drink, among other delights.

Watering holes of choice range from the likes of the style-conscious dining bar Teuchters on William Street, popular with the fun loving after-work crowd, to more refined and historical bars such as Wingham’s Wine Cellars and Bar à Vin. There is also the Edinburgh Gin Distillery on Rutland Street where you can take a tour, distil your own gin or just pop in for a bottle.

Art & Leisure

With independent galleries, such as the West End’s Gallery TEN, both established and emerging artists are represented and supported throughout the town. Besides easy access to the city's art galleries and museums, there are plenty of diversions on your doorstep. Edinburgh is a city of festivals and the West End holds its own arts festival each April.

The magnificent St Mary’s Cathedral is one of the area's architectural gems. Designed by Sir Gilbert Scott and erected in 1874, it hosts concerts and also accommodates the writer Sir Walter Scott's personal pew.

Outdoors

The naturally wild banks of the river the Water of Leith are always a joy to stroll or cycle along, as is the Union Canal. Slightly further afield, Princes Street Gardens offer a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the capital’s main shopping streets.

Alternatively, you can splash around at the Drumsheugh Baths Club, one of the oldest private swimming clubs in the UK.
