Your very own eden, in the Edinburgh hub
Urban Eden is designed for a
particular style of urban living. It's about being part of the city
and also being separate from it. It's about community and being
good neighbours. About somewhere you can live, work, play, get on,
have fun and laugh a lot.
The character of Urban Eden is set by
the colony houses that are at the heart of it. Originally built in
the second half of the 19th Century, colony houses were designed as
homes for Edinburgh's growing population of skilled artisans, one
home up, one home down.
In Urban Eden, we've re-interpreted
them for the 21st Century, with colony properties that have 1, 2
and 3 bedrooms. In addition there are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom
apartments, 2 bedroom corner apartments, 2 and 3 bedroom terraced
houses, 3 bedroom courtyard houses, and 3 and 4 bedroom
Attention to detail
We've chosen our building materials
carefully, led by architectural style of the town's traditional
colony houses which we've recreated predominantly in brick, and
also by the sandy and grey stone hues that are so much a part of
We've been equally careful to use
sympathetic,high quality materials for the streets and pathways,
stainless steel and hardwood for the street furniture, sustainably
sourced, pre-treated European hard and soft woods for the garden
furniture, and so on.
The interiors of all the properties
are also of a very high standard, beautifully and cleverly designed
to make the most of interior space and 'liveability', with stylish
kitchens, bathrooms and fittings, and everything just so.
