Incredible three-bedroom penthouse with a wrap-around roof terrace located in the desirable Murrayfield area as part of AMA's latest show-stopping development, Torwood.
Setting foot into the development, you are met by two striking apartment blocks. The crisp sandstone corners work hand-in-hand with the curving wood and swaying grasses of the beautifully landscaped grounds to create a fantastically established sense of place.
This stunning penthouse apartment is a testament to the attention to detail and well-considered approach taken by AMA when planning this development as a whole and this apartment in particular. The property is accessed via lift, and the penthouse is the only home on the floor, ensuring a high level of privacy.
Crossing the threshold, you are met by an inviting and well-lit hallway. A glance to the side will reveal a utility room more capacious than some studio apartments.
Making your way through the property, you are met by two impressive bedrooms, both complete with built-in wardrobes, one boasting an en-suite. There is also an amply sized family bathroom.
The master bedroom is a truly special offering, with a south-facing wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and direct access to the roof terrace. The beautiful en-suite boasts dual sinks and statement backlit mirrors alongside a stand-alone bath and shower.
The highlight of the property is the fantastic open plan living, dining, and kitchen area. Upon entry, you are struck by the flooring shimmering in the natural light. Panning around, you are met with a wall of windows skirting just under half of the room, with access at the south end of the room to an extensive wrap-around roof terrace offering breathtaking vistas of the Pentlands, Arthur's Seat, and Edinburgh Castle. The generous bespoke kitchen features a wide range of beautifully detailed storage units, a Zip instant boiling water tap, and a variety of Siemens and Liebherr appliances, including a large built-in fridge freezer and separate wine fridge, as well as a coffee machine and plate warmer.
Discover Torwood in Murrayfield - a magnificent mix of restored and reimagined Victorian houses and cool, contemporary luxury apartments, offering 28 new homes.
The new apartment blocks will sit within the beautifully landscaped grounds and are finished in crisp sandstone, chosen to match the warm tones of the original buildings. All the homes benefit from allocated car parking and a curtain of mature trees shelters the development from the bustle of Corstorphine Road. Plots 1 and 2 also have their own private gardens and double garages.
AMA homes’ reputation is built on its quality of construction, design flair and attention to detail. These three elements come together beautifully at Torwood. There are quality touches throughout the homes, from the bespoke kitchens, complete with a range of Siemens and Liebherr appliances, to the immaculate, designer bathrooms. In addition, fitted wardrobes adorn all the bedrooms, with a carefully considered range of drawers, shelves and hanging space.
