A high-profile launch event –titled Festival on the Top Floor –was headlined by world-famous violinist Nicola Benedetti and featured canapes by chef Dean Banks of the Pompadour at Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian.

Covering 2,655sq ft – with a terrace of equal size – the penthouse is a modern luxurious home that is arguably just as impressive and elegant as the 19th-Century Playfair building The Crescent surrounds.

The three-bedroom property boasts triple-aspect views across the city and the Pentlands, lending itself well to modern living with as much outdoor space as indoor.

Accessed via a staircase or private lift, the hallway leads to a spacious open-plan kitchen-dining area that features sleek Leicht handleless soft-close units, a Quooker Fusion tap, and an island with Gaggenau touch-control induction hob.

There is a separate utility room, and a family room to the rear, while the living room is off to the side.

Both the formal lounge and dining space can open to the outside terrace via floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors.

All three bedrooms are ensuite with built-in wardrobes, and the master bedroom has the additional benefit of a dressing area.

The wrap-around roof terrace has ample space for entertaining with the cityscape and leafy surrounds as its backdrop.

The penthouse’s specification boasts underfloor heating, chrome towel warmers in the main bathroom, where there is a choice of Porcelanosa tiles, as well as secure underground parking and EV chargers.

Taking the formation of a bold arc, replicating the Georgian streets of the West End, The Crescent comprises 84 glass-fronted apartments designed by architect Richard Murphy.
