A summer ‘meet the neighbours’ garden party gives buyers a flavour of life at Canonmills

As well as an opportunity for the new owners to meet the neighbours over canapes and drinks in glorious sunshine, the garden party was an opportunity to visit Canonmills Garden’s new marketing suite and try out the HomeSelector, an exciting interactive online facility designed to bring the development to life.

The upside of buying off-plan is that you can be sure of securing a property early in what is proving to be one of Edinburgh’s most popular and innovative new developments. Until moving-in day, we are doing everything we can to make the purchase as tangible as possible for buyers. We have created a ‘Canonmills in miniature’ model in the dedicated marketing suite, along with our new online HomeSelector.  This enables buyers to start thinking about how they might decorate their new home and how they might use the rooms - from what style of sofa they might want to buy and where they might sit to enjoy the sunrise from the terrace, to where they will be storing their bikes.

Comprising 135 luxury homes nestled beside the water of Leith close to bustling Stockbridge, Canonmills Garden has proved to be incredibly popular with a cross-section of Edinburgh buyers, including those downsizing from the nearby New Town and young professionals keen to put down roots in a burgeoning neighbourhood.  Inspired by the nearby Royal Botanical Garden, each apartment block has been named after botanical flowers like Carlina, Rubus, Viola, Muscari, Sophora and Tilia and each sits within enclosed communal landscaped gardens as part of this creative, contemporary development. 

The garden party encapsulated the genuine sense of a new community coming together. A number of buyers contacted us after hearing from friends and family who have already purchased, and we even have existing neighbours who have chosen apartments next door to each other.
