Artisan Real Estate’s Rowanbank Gardens site brings together a mix of one, two and three-bedroom spacious apartments on the site of the former Gylemuir Care Home, overlooking Gyle Park, close to the main A8 access route into the city.
The development has been heralded as a blueprint for post-Covid living, bringing together smart energy-efficient design geared to achieving low to zero carbon ratings whilst responding to the rapidly changing requirements of home buyers and the wider community following lockdown.
Homes have been designed around an internal courtyard garden filled with fruit trees and communal planting and growing beds – as well as a children’s play park, a natural woodland area and formal lawns. The apartments are designed for open plan living with most having easy access to a private courtyard or large balcony overlooking the gardens, while innovations such as green roofs ensure benefits of surface water retention, improved insulation and ecology. Construction is forecast to start in 2021.
