Nicola Benedetti joins Cala Homes at unveiling of Edinburgh penthouse
Homebuilder Cala Homes (East) was joined by Scottish violin star Nicola Benedetti last night at the unveiling of its penthouse at The Crescent, within the iconic Donaldson’s Estate in Edinburgh’s West End.
The evening was focused on the soon to be released 2,655 sq.ft penthouse – with a terrace of equal size – along with the final collection of apartments at the development, which has won more awards than any other Cala development since it launched back in 2018.
The glittering event, entitled ’Festival on the Top Floor’, headlined by the world-renowned violinist, was a celebration of the fantastic festival culture in Scotland’s capital city. Designed to reinforce the unrivalled positioning of The Crescent, which basks in the 18 acres of lush green parkland within the Donaldson Estate, whilst being a short walk into the city centre.
Taking the formation of a bold arc, replicating the Georgian streets of the city’s West End, The Crescent comprises 84 glass-fronted apartments. Featuring two- or three-bedroom designs, the homes at The Crescent – including the highly sought-after penthouse, which is now released for sale with offers over £2.25m – showcase unique modern living within a grand and luxurious setting.
The penthouse boasts triple aspect views across the city and across to the Pentland Hills, as well as underfloor heating, enhanced height living areas, secure underground parking and EV charging provision.
Designed by acclaimed architect, Richard Murphy OBE, the apartments have been incredibly popular, and this latest release comes as the development is now almost fully sold, with just 11 apartments remaining and styles now becoming limited.
Phillip Hogg, sales and marketing director for Cala Homes (East), said: “Our Festival on the Top Floor was a true celebration of all that is great in Edinburgh and really showcased how our award-winning development at The Crescent blends culture, city living and lush green parkland surroundings all in one.
“Having Nicola Benedetti perform – especially after her recent appointment as director of Edinburgh International Festival was a real highlight of an incredibly special evening – all who attended were blown away with her talent. Our stunning penthouse was the perfect stage”
