Homecairn House is a substantial five storey development containing 35 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, originally constructed during the late 1980’s by McCarthy Stone.

There is also guest accommodation within the development which is available to visitors/family by prior booking through Peverel.
Apartment 2/26 sits on the third floor and enjoys a sunny position, with south and west facing windows overlooking substantial Victorian buildings opposite, with roof top views to Corstorphine Hill. An angled view is also available towards The Castle.
The property for sale is designed around a central hallway, and offers a spacious living/dining room with a large five-sided bay window, and direct access to the fitted kitchen, two double bedrooms - each with fitted double wardrobes, and a wet room including a walk-in shower, vanity wash basin, and w.c.. The easily managed layout benefits from PVC framed double glazed windows, and an electric off-peak heating system. Redecoration is required, and the kitchen would now benefit from some upgrading.
