The Kingsford Residence located on McDonald Road, offers residents the opportunity to stay in a former Victorian School building which has been newly converted to form one of Edinburgh`s first operational Build to Rent developments. The apartments retain many of the original features of the building while blending them seamlessly with contemporary open plan living and modern fixtures. This presents a unique opportunity to be one of the first experience living in this iconic Edinburgh building. Rental price included access to gym and wifi.

All apartments also benefit from a secure video entry system for guest access. Superfast fibre broadband is provided via dedicated WIFI access points in each apartment and is also available in the communal areas.
The building also benefits from a number communal spaces which are available to all residents. These include a spectacular roof terrace with panoramic views across the city, `The Club Room` which functions as an elegantly designed residents` lounge with large screen TV, coffee bar and plenty space to relax with friends and fellow residents, `The Bridge` which functions as co-working space and bookable private dining room with fully fitted kitchen to cater for larger gatherings, and `The Gym` which consists of a functional training studio and separate cardio suite which will be available for both private use and trainer led classes.
The Residence is immediately adjacent to the Broughton Primary School and as such there will be an inevitable level of noise heard from children playing during their breaks, both during the school day and at afterschool clubs. Residents must be willing to accept that an element of noise from the playground forms part of community life in this location given the proximity of the School.
As the apartment consists of mezzanine deck and stairs they are unfortunately unsuitable for small children.
