Craig Amy wins planning for Edinburgh home
July 9 2012
Located on the road from Holyrood Palace, Edinburgh, just a stones throw from Scotland's political heart the property is currently on the Buildings at Risk Register and lies on the eastern boundary of the New Town conservation area.
Built into a railway embankment the structure is believed to originate from the early 19th century when it formed part of the former Abbeyhill Foundry.
With a footprint of 28sq/m the property will provide a bedroom, bathroom and small utility space on the ground floor with a stairwell leading to a kitchen and breakfast bar above. From there the spiral stair leads up to the main living area before ultimately culminating in a study space.
To accommodate this vertical requirement the roof will be raised by 600mm and a large dormer window will be installed with views out toward the Parliament and Arthur’s Seat beyond.
The home could be on site as early as September.
