New development breathes life into Barnton hotel site


Showhome for Ramsay Grange residential development will launch 28th October

The historic Barnton Hotel building is set to open its doors once again tomorrow as the showhome for the new residential site, Ramsay Grange, is unveiled.

To mark the occasion, potential buyers and interested members of the public  are invited to visit the showhome from Tuesday 28th October until Saturday 1st November.  The apartments will then be available to purchase from Monday 3rd November 2014.

Redevelopment of the Grade C Listed building to transform it into nine luxury residential apartments designed specifically for those aged 50 plus has been underway for 12 months.  The development will include eight two bedroom and one one-bedroom apartments. Residents will benefit from gardening, landscaping,  window cleaning and building maintenance.

Ramsay Grange is being developed in association with retirement housing specialists, McCarthy & Stone.

Steve Wiseman, Regional Managing Director of McCarthy & Stone, said: “Barnton has been an extremely exciting site for us to develop. Given the building’s prominent location within the community, there has been a huge amount of interest around the site. Indeed many have expressed an interest in the possibility of owning a part of local history.

“Throughout the construction process we have remained sympathetic to the building’s original design and we are confident that we have reconfigured the building to a high standard so that the local community can take pride in the building once again.

“We thank members of the local community for their patience and cooperation throughout the construction activity so far. We look forward to welcoming people along to see the showhome later this month.”

In an additional boost for older house hunters in the Edinburgh area, the adjacent land to the east of the Ramsay Grange development will be used to create much needed housing for people with additional care and support needs by McCarthy & Stone.

The Assisted Living development, Lyle Court, will be first develop of its kind for McCarthy & Stone in Edinburgh and  will provide 73 homes specifically designed for those aged over 70 to offer access to communal resident’s facilities and packages of tailored personal care. Plans and prices are now available to view and the showhome for this site is expected to open in December 2014.

Prices for Ramsay Grange will be available on 28th October 2014.
