Wemyss Properties signs off for 2014

After an exciting 2014, which has seen the completion and sale of a number of exceptional new developments in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Wemyss Properties wishes all its customers, clients and associates a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Everyone in the company is now looking forward to an equally successful 2015.

“The success of our Polwarth Terrace development in Edinburgh and the equally strong showing of Woodside Terrace in Glasgow, has meant that we leave 2014 in excellent shape and optimistic for the future,” says Managing Director Matthew Atton.


“We are already moving ahead with new developments in both cities – Lyndoch Street, in Glasgow, and Newbattle Terrace, in Edinburgh – and we are confident that these will be just as popular.”


For Matthew the continual strong development of the company’s portfolio confirms the strength of Wemyss Properties’ business strategy and shows that its direction of travel is the right one.

“The enthusiasm that buyers in Edinburgh and Glasgow have shown for our developments – both in terms of their design and their locations – indicates that we there is a real demand for new homes of the type we build,” says Matthew. “We aim to continue to meet this demand in the months and years to come.”

Penthouse sold at Polwarth Terrace

We are delighted to announce the recent sale of the spectacular, large, four-bedroom penthouse at our Polwarth Terrace development in Edinburgh. The successful sale of this property, which was purchased at over the asking price, means that only the final penthouse in the development remains; all of its other luxury apartments having been pre-sold before it was launched onto the market in 2014.

“We have been delighted by the strong interest that’s been shown in Polwarth Terrace,” says our Managing Director, Matthew Atton, who reports that feedback from viewers of the two penthouses has been fantastic.


“This supports our firm belief that there is a market for this kind of high-quality contemporary architecture in Edinburgh. The level of enquiry we have had, and the speed with which the development has sold, gives us a great boost as we move forward with our next development at nearby Newbattle Terrace.”
