Imagine owing a stylish apartment right at the heart of Edinburgh, close to the hustle and bustle of this lively city, with an array of bars, restaurants and shops – including the vibrant St James Quarter - on your doorstep…

With our tailor-made move-in package worth up to 5% of the value of your new home, this chic urban lifestyle could be yours sooner than you think. Designed to help you start to embrace city living, this exclusive offer is available when you purchase a selected luxury apartment at The Engine Yard* - one of Edinburgh’s most exciting new places to live.

Modern, contemporary living

These stunning one and two-bedroom homes feature a contemporary open-plan design that maximises space and light, with plenty of room to comfortably live, work and entertain. Some apartments even come with their own private balcony or terrace, providing the perfect spot to enjoy impressive views of Edinburgh and beyond.

The Engine Yard itself – located on Leith Walk and just a 10-minute walk from the city centre – is an award-winning (WhatHouse 2020 Silver Winner) restoration of Edinburgh’s historic tram depot, rich in industrial architecture and benefitting from an on-site Places Gym.

A winning location

The location couldn’t be better, with a choice of eclectic boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants as well as the vibrant St James Quarter all within easy reach. And once the city’s tramway connects to Leith in around 18 months’ time, a mere 3-minute ride to Edinburgh’s centre will only add to The Engine Yard’s appeal – even more reason to embrace city living sooner rather than later!
