Torwood House in sought-after Murrayfield is the latest exciting new development from AMA Homes where the existing Victorian house is undergoing a restoration and remodelling to convert it into two elegant semi-detached four and five-bedroom homes, ideal for those whose children have moved out but who still want to enjoy city living with plenty of space.

The development, which will be complete by early 2022, also features 23 luxury two and three-bedroom apartments within two contemporary pavilion blocks, while the existing two-bedroom lodge will be remodelled and the coach houses converted to create a two-bedroom and a three-bedroom apartment.

“We have many buyers whose children have flown the nest but they’re still fit and healthy and extremely active, and so they want to enjoy the very best that the city has to offer,” says Behnam Afshar, director of AMA Homes.

“At Torwood House, there’s a great opportunity to enjoy a lovely small development in the heart of the city that you can call home."

“If you don’t want to have less space or compromise on your quality of living, our designs are perfect for you. We always emphasise the living space – the kitchen and the living room – with generous proportions to give you maximum comfort, while keeping enough bedrooms to have the whole family to stay if you want to.”

AMA Homes has also unveiled its new development in the up-and-coming Gorgie Road area, set to follow in the footsteps of gentrified neighbour Dalry. The properties at Springwell include 48 new homes: six family-sized four-bedroom townhouses and two traditional lodges along with 35 spacious apartments and five contemporary duplexes, all offering a range of options from one to four bedrooms.

The former Springwell Hospital, made up of two impressive Victorian buildings dating back to the late 1800s, is being restored and converted to meet and exceed contemporary standards, while a series of 1960s extensions have been demolished and replaced by stunning new additions designed to complement the existing buildings. The development will be ready in early 2021, and 18 properties have already been snapped up off-plan by buyers keen to be part of it.

“All our developments are deliberately small to help build that vital sense of community,” adds Behnam. “It creates a feeling of belonging when it’s more intimate; on our developments, you can get to know everybody and it feels special.

“We feel the same about the service that we offer – we work hard on our after-sales care because we’re hands-on and we really do care. I know every one of my clients who I have sold to in the last five years; there’s no one that buys a house from us that I don’t get to know personally.”
