The Kinnear Road Villas are the conversion, refurbishment and extension of the formerĀ Edinburgh Academy boarding houses into four individual family homes.


These historically listed Arts and Crafts boarding houses were infested with rot through a decade of neglect. Each had to be stripped back to their stone shell prior to extensive stone repair and reslating with balconies, stone walls and railings reinstated, driveways formed and gardens remodelled.

The interiors were reconstructed throughout with fireplaces, bathrooms and kitchens introduced with new joinery and plasterwork finishes to create charming bespoke family homes.
