  • Land at New Brunstane (West Site), Edinburgh OPPORTUNITY

    On behalf of EDI Group we are appointed to sell a significant first phase of the urban extension at New Brunstane, Edinburgh.

    EDI Group sets out the vision for New Brunstane to become a thriving community in the heart of a parkland setting; a family friendly neighbourhood in Edinburgh with easy access to the City and beyond. The high quality homes, school and recreation facilities will be set in a sensitively designed landscape.

    The area of land for sale extends to 50.28 acres (20.35 ha) and offers the opportunity to develop approximately 500-600 new homes and local shops and amenities, adjacent to a new primary school.

    LOCATION

    The site is located approximately 5.3 miles to the south east of Edinburgh city centre, between Newcraighall and Joppa. Musselburgh is also located in close proximity being approximately 1 mile east. The area is popular with families and those who commute into the city centre.

    New Brunstane is very well connected by a range of transport options. The site sits to the east of the A1, less than half a mile from the Newcraighall Junction. The A1 connects directly to the city centre to the north east and with the Edinburgh City Bypass to the south. In terms of public transport, a number of bus routes can be utilised from Newcraighall Road which connect across the city and into Musselburgh.

    In future, a bus route will traverse through the site along the principal road, serving the new development.

    New Brunstane is also well located for access to three railway stations which all connect into Edinburgh City Centre. Newcraighall

    and Brunstane Stations are approximately 0.5 miles away, and within walking distance. Musselburgh station is also close by approx 1 mile South East of the subject.

    The site is currently within the catchment area for Newcraighall Primary School and St John’s RC Primary School, albeit a new primary school will be delivered on site. Secondary school provision is at Castlebrae High School and Holy Rood RC High School. There are also two Higher Education facilities close to the site, Edinburgh Colleges’ Milton Road Campus and Queen Margaret University.

    There are a variety of retail and leisure facilities nearby including; The Fort Kinnaird Retail Park, which is located less than 1 mile away. This shopping centre accommodates many well known retailers including Argos, Boots, Primark, TK Maxx and M&S. There is also a cinema and various restaurant outlets including Pizza Express, Nando’s and Frankie & Benny’s. Whilst nearby leisure and sports facilities include; Bannantyne’s Health Club, Portobello Swim Centre, Musselburgh Sports Centre, Duddingston Golf Club, Musselburgh Golf Club and Newcraighall Bowling Club.

  • DESCRIPTION

    The subject site extends to approximately 50.28 acres (20.35 ha) and is irregular in shape. It forms the majority of the western part of New Brunstane, which is bisected by the East Coast Mainline railway line. The two parts are currently connected by a small bridge.

    The site has a gentle slope north east towards Joppa and comprises largely undeveloped land which is currently used for agricultural purposes. It is accessed from Newcraighall Road to the south of the site. The land benefits from a number of excellent views towards the Firth of Forth, Berwick Law, the Pentland Hills and Arthur’s Seat.

    The site is bounded to the north by the Brunstane Burn beyond which lies Edinburgh College’s Milton Road Campus. To the east lies the railway line and the eastern part of the New Brunstane site which will continue to be used for agricultural purposes in the short-term. To the south of the site is land under development by Barratt Homes (Newcraighall Village) beyond which lies Newcraighall Road and further residential homes. Finally, to the west of the site lies Brunstane House (category A listed) and existing housing at Gilberstoun.
