Welcoming Charm:

The Daisy Terrace Renovation

Welcome to Daisy Terrace, nestled within the picturesque Flower Colonies of Shandon, Edinburgh. This charming ground-floor colony flat exudes character and warmth, offering a glimpse into the historic craftsmanship of the late 1800s. Let’s stroll through this delightful property’s transformation, where old-world charm meets modern comfort.

Project Overview

Stepping into Daisy Terrace, we journeyed to unveil its hidden potential. Previously occupied for half a century, the property awaited a fresh start. With carpets, wallpaper, and dated fixtures stripped away, we were met with a blank canvas brimming with possibilities.

Recognising the opportunity to maximise space, we set our sights on converting the property into a two-bedroom property. A large box room, off the hallway, proved to be the perfect candidate for transformation. With careful planning, we transformed this space into a functional kitchen, seamlessly integrating modern convenience into the property’s historic framework.

Unlocking Space

Preserving the property’s original charm was paramount throughout the renovation. From the stunning fireplace hearth discovered beneath the carpets to the intricate cornice and ceiling rose, each original feature was lovingly restored to its former glory. The result? A harmonious blend of old-world elegance and contemporary comfort.

Restoring Character

In addition to restoring character, we focused on improving functionality. The master bedroom, bathed in sunlight, transformed, with walls refreshed and original floorboards lovingly restored. With a second bedroom and modernised bathrooms, Daisy Terrace emerged as a versatile home tailored to modern living.

Investment Details

Private investor finance played a crucial role in funding the Haymarket project, allowing individuals to participate in a lucrative investment venture.

Embracing Modernity

While preserving its historic charm, Daisy Terrace embraces modernity with tasteful updates. Stylish LED mirrors, timeless bathroom designs, and strategically placed frosted glass doors maximise natural light, creating an inviting ambience throughout the property.
