First homes released at landmark Edinburgh development

THE FIRST homes have been released at one of Scotland’s most high-profile developments, that is transforming Edinburgh’s former Royal Hospital for Sick Children into a range of luxury homes.

Featuring 83 homes in total, a mixture of apartments, penthouses and townhouses, Royal Meadows is the largest project to date by the renowned Edinburgh developer, Square & Crescent.

Included in the first phase of homes released to market are five-bedroom, three-storey townhouses on Millerfield Place starting from £1.55m.

Six stylish apartments have been released within the east wing of the main red sandstone Sciennes building, as well as eight Millerfield apartments, which look directly on to The Meadows.

Simon Cook, Co-Founder and Joint Managing Director with Square & Crescent, said: “We recognise just how significant these buildings are to people in and around Edinburgh and the responsibility for ensuring a fitting next chapter.

“The talented teams involved in bringing our early vision to life are successfully transforming and revitalising these historic buildings using real craftsmanship to create beautiful, well-appointed homes.

“We trust that they will be well received by homebuyers and urge anyone interested to get in touch.”

Occupying an outstanding location on the edge of The Meadows, one of Edinburgh’s most famous parks, the luxury homes sit on a four-acre site and lie between Sciennes Road and Rillbank Crescent.

The Royal Meadows sales suite and show apartment is now open by appointment for potential buyers. Construction on the residential development is set to be fully completed in early-mid 2026, with the first clients set to get their keys this Summer.

Nestled in the heart of Marchmont and The Grange area of Edinburgh, the Royal Meadows development is well-connected – just one mile from Princes Street and a short walk from Lothian Road.

The premium residential developer supports Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity (ECHC) – which helps seriously ill babies, children and young people in Edinburgh and the Lothians by supporting their medical care, mental health and family’s wellbeing. ECHC’s former headquarters is one of the buildings being converted as part of the major Royal Meadows development.

Square & Crescent is a widely regarded residential developer with a primary focus on the acquisition and development of historic buildings into beautiful homes.

Available homes within the first phase at Royal Meadows start from £520,000.
