Contemporary Conversions for
Your Edinburgh Home
Edinburgh New Town period properties may look the same on the outside but, as the saying goes, don’t judge a book by its cover. Although there are strict guidelines in place for what can and can’t be done with the exterior, the rules are rather more forgiving when it comes to the interior. However, it takes an expert knowledge of Edinburgh listed building consent combined with a visionary eye for detail to retain the original character and combine it with the modern touch to deliver breathtaking results.
Over the years Mackenzie Hughes is proud to have been asked to restore many Edinburgh period properties – many to their former glory, while others have been completely re-imagined internally to blend the character of the period in which they were built with contemporary styling and modern conveniences.
And, if you were to cross the threshold of a few, you would discover open layouts making the best use of the high ceilings and large spaces; sumptuous baths and walk-in shower rooms with underfloor heating; expertly designed kitchens, carefully planned lighting to deliver warmth while accentuating prized artwork and hi-tech yet discreet security systems to keep your home, family and possessions safe.
Creating your home for the way you live
Your Edinburgh period home may be built from ashlar stone from Craigleith Quarry; it may have sash and case windows and a fanlight above the front door, the same as your neighbour next door – but within certain parameters, the inside is a blank canvas for modern living. Trust Mackenzie Hughes to help you bring it to life.
