About this property

  • Apartment 31, 8 Simpson Loan is a truly stunning triplex penthouse apartment which is set over the 8th, 9th and 10th floors of a contemporary building.

    The property is beautifully presented throughout and it is finished to the highest specification. The owners of the apartment purchased the property from the developers in 2015 and specified a number of additional features to be incorporated at time of build and post completion.

    The upgrades included bespoke designer kitchen with Gaggenau appliances, designer walk-in wardrobes, Audio system, timber flooring throughout (excluding bathrooms) and air conditioning. Throughout the apartment there is high speed network cabling and electrically controlled blinds.

    There are floor to ceiling windows in the master bedroom, bedroom 2 and the reception spaces which showcase the breath taking views on offer from the apartment. With north and south facing aspects the property benefits from both exceptional cityscape and more rural views, as well as an abundance of natural light throughout the day.

    Access to the apartment is by lift or communal stair to the 8th floor. The front door opens to a broad and welcoming reception hall and to the bedroom accommodation. From here, stairs rise to the 9th and 10th floors where there are superb living and outdoor spaces.

    8th Floor: Entrance hall, south facing master bedroom suite, 3 further bedrooms (2 en suite), family bathroom, utility room and considerable storage space.

    9th Floor: High specification breakfasting kitchen with views of Edinburgh Castle, dining area and lounge with doors opening to the south facing terrace.

    10th Floor: Sitting room, study and WC.

    Externally, there is access to a south facing roof terrace providing an outdoor entertaining area with superb views of the meadows and beyond including the Pentland Hills and Arthur's Seat.

    From the 10th floor stairs lead to a further roof terrace. The apartment and its terraces have some of the best views in Edinburgh with panoramic aspects of Edinburgh Castle, The Meadows, West Edinburgh and beyond to Fife. In addition there is 1 allocated car parking spaces in the underground car park.

    Apartment 31 provides purchasers with a unique opportunity: the location, views, design, sense of space and level of finish make this property quite simply one of a kind. It is unquestionably one of the finest contemporary apartments in Edinburgh.
