< back to top

Welcome to The Burrell Company Newsletter - our first.

Hopefully you'll find something of interest to you, whether it be a new property, one you already live in or worked on as part of our professional team, or simply to have a laugh at some of the images.

Our various company web sites will tell you more and provide you with the means to contact us.


Upper Strand: Going, going...

< back to top

Over half of the one, two and three bedroom properties have been sold, with people attracted to the area by the opportunities for first time buyers, young professionals and families.

The stunning apartments some with views over the Firth of Forth and Fife, are set in a great location, with excellent transport links to the city centre and appealing incentives to buy are also generating a great deal of interest among house hunters.

The development, which boasts spacious balconies or terraces and free secure parking, with options to purchase a space in two years, also features tree-lined boulevards, wide walkways and cycle paths, leading to squares and piazzas enhanced by sculptures, water features and extensive planting add to the overall appeal of the area.


Coalhill2 takes it's place on Leith Waterfront

From this month, potential buyers will be able to reserve one of seven distinctive new apartments from plan at the highly praised Leith development by BUREDI, a joint venture by The Burrell Company and the EDI Group. The first phase was critically acclaimed receiving both 'The Britannia Best Apartment of the Year in the UK' and 'The Britannia Building of the Year' awards in 2001.

The new phase will complement and maintain the success of the original building with the architectural style of Allan Murray Architects, winners of the international architectural competition for the development, continuing throughout.

Featuring 39 one, two and three bedroom apartments, the properties are grouped around a private courtyard overlooking the Water of Leith. Each property also benefits from a private underground car parking space with lift access to all floors.

There's still one in the Tower!

Following huge demand, 30 properties have been sold and only the exclusive tower apartment remains available at the development, a joint venture between The Premier Property Group and The Burrell Company.

Priced at £349,000, the tower apartment is one of only two tower properties in the development, offering accommodation located across the second and third floors of the beautifully restored hospital building. Features include a public room, kitchen, washroom and spiral staircase leading to a master bedroom with en-suite, two further bedrooms, a bathroom, study and library with a spiral stair and a stunning panoramic viewing platform within the tower itself.

Located within a Conservation area in the Ashgrove area of the City of Aberdeen, the building features a front elevation offering excellent southerly views over mature grounds towards the city.

Digging Deep in Dean

< back to top

An archaeological dig provides greater understanding of the industrial past at Bells Mills near Dean Village in Edinburgh.

Knowledge gained will be shared with the local community in the form of an Interpretation board located within the ruined mill bothy to be retained as part of the development. It is also hoped we can display fragments of grinding stones and 200 year old cobbles found during the excavations.

Sections of the remaining mill lade are to be incorporated within a considered landscape scheme which features planting and materials appropriate to the area.

City Archaeologist John Lawson said: "The Bells Mills Investigation has been a unique opportunity to uncover and evaluate industrial archaeology of this quality in central Edinburgh."

Bells Mills is located in the Dean Conservation Area, which forms part of the Edinburgh World Heritage Site, and was historically Edinburgh's largest milling settlement.

Schaw House is the transformation of a 19th Century, Tudor Gothic inspired, former hospital set in extensive landscaped grounds. Of the twenty-three properties available there are one, two and three bedroom traditional apartments, duplex and mews houses, many with spectacular southerly views over the Glasgow skyline.

Blast from the past: We take a look back at Dublin Colonies

< back to top

Dublin Colonies in Edinburgh was the first project to be undertaken by the fledgling BUREDI company, a joint venture between The Burrell Company and the EDI Group in the late 1990's.

The result of an architectural competition, won by Richard Murphy Architects, it received numerous awards, including the RIBA in 2000. A mew's style development situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town, comprising six houses and twenty two apartments of varying sizes. BUREDI and Richard Murphy Architects have since completed a number of other award winning projects, of which more on our website.

Divine Outcome

< back to top

For those of you unlucky enough to catch the BBC series 'A Passion for Churches' you may be interested in the sequel to the programme concerning the former Mount Zion church in Quarriers Village between Kilmalcolm and Bridge of Weir.

At the time of filming The Burrell Company were awaiting the outcome of their Planning Appeal to convert the property to residential units.
The Appeal was successful and the project will commence early next year with architects RMJM, best known as the acclaimed joint architects of the Scottish Parliament.
