Buckingham Terrace is one of Edinburgh’s first exclusive housing developments. Built in 1831 these affluent Victorian town houses are full of lavish detailing. Listed by Historic Scotland they continue to make a significant contribution to the West End streetscape. Number 8 boasts its own special heritage having been remodelled in 1893 by one of Scotland’s leading architects, Sir Robert Lorimer, for his sister Lady Alice Chalmers. Lorimer was a key proponent of the Arts and Crafts movement and is famed for - among other things - Ardkinglas House on Loch Fyne, the Thistle Chapel at St Giles Cathedral and the Scottish War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle. He is responsible for Number 8’s uniquely glazed windows. Apartment 2F enjoys the benefit of a balcony with balustraded parapet which sits over these prominent two-storey bays. The building is approached via an entrance platt with cast iron railings leading to an impressive double doorway, which is again unique amongst its neighbours and enjoys views across to Edinburgh Castle.
