Murphy completes crescent of £1.9m Edinburgh New Town homes

Richard Murphy Architects: The Crescent at Donaldson's in Edinburgh New Town

Crescent at Donaldson’s project also saw historic deaf school converted into flats

Richard Murphy has completed a crescent of 84 glass-fronted homes in Edinburgh’s Unesco-listed New Town.

The project has been dubbed by its developer, Cala Homes, the most ambitious residential development in the Scottish capital for generations.

Prices range from just under £1m to more than £1.9m.

The project, which sits in 18 acres of gardens a mile from Princes Street, also involved the restoration and conversion into flats of the historic former Donaldson’s School for the Deaf and Gate Lodges, by a different developer.
