Take a look inside the last remaining properties at
AMA Homes’ Canon Quarters residential development

SEARCHING for the perfect property but perplexed by the ‘old versus new’ debate?

If your wish-list consists of contemporary interiors, up-to-the-minute design features, and modern energy efficiency standards, but you don’t want to compromise on charm, character or heritage, take a look inside the last remaining properties at AMA Homes’ Canon Quarters residential development. Combining modern luxury living with historic surroundings, it’s an architectural statement that says you can have it all.

Canon Quarters is located in Edinburgh’s Canonmills – an area steeped in heritage and natural beauty, a stone’s throw from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Inverleith Park and the Water of Leith, and just a short walk from the capital’s historic New Town.

The setting is certainly impressive, and the interiors are equally so. The flexible, open-plan kitchen, diner and lounge area provides ample space for modern living – whether it be relaxing alone or entertaining guests. The highest technical specifications are coupled with contemporary design, features and fittings throughout. The result is a collection of 29 luxury apartments that offer an unrivalled standard of living.

And it’s not just the aesthetics that makes Canon Quarters the stand-out choice for home buyers; the development also ticks all the boxes when it comes to making an investment.

Property experts warn that, all too often, house hunters can become trapped in a bidding war when trying to secure similar or smaller sized properties in Edinburgh’s Georgian and Victorian tenements.

Worryingly, these traditional tenements often have no management or factoring in place, and research has shown that buyers can end up paying a higher purchase price for flats that require enormous amounts of long-term essential maintenance work. These unexpected costs can hit period property purchasers hard.

As a welcome contrast, all Canon Quarters homes come with a ten-year NHBC guarantee from the date of first occupation, plus an AMA Homes warranty to ensure that any snagging issues are dealt with quickly and effectively. In addition, thanks to the superior level of insulation in these new build properties, they are highly energy efficient, so Canon Quarters residents can expect to make long-term savings on utility bills.

Commenting on the last remaining properties, AMA Homes director, Behnam Afshar, said: “Canon Quarters is a modern architectural statement. From the clean, sharp lines of the slick exteriors, to the flow and flexibility of the design-led interiors, every detail has been carefully considered.

“Couple this with the historic setting – an area rich in heritage, close to one of the finest botanic gardens in the world – and you would be hard pressed to find a home in the Scottish capital that even comes close to this level of luxury.”

Just five properties remain at Canon Quarters – each one a large two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, with prices starting at £430,000. Book a viewing, strictly by appointment only, and see for yourself what makes Canon Quarters such a remarkable address to call home.
