Clifton Mews, Portobello, Edinburgh

Project: Clifton Mews, Portobello, Edinburgh

Clifton Mews, the luxury retirement development in Portobello, Edinburgh, has recently had a selection of Tobermore landscaping products installed on the grounds surrounding the gorgeous residence.

Designed by The Planning Bureau Ltd, Clifton Mews consists of 47 bedroom apartments with outstanding balconies which benefit from greater access to outdoor living areas and features a central atrium and shared garden with plenty of seating areas throughout. Ideal for those seeking retirement apartments in Edinburgh, the retirement village is situated on Baileyfield Road in Portobello, a popular seaside suburb of the city and close to the lovely areas of Joppa, Duddingston and Leith.

The picturesque and popular Portobello beach and promenade is less than a mile away from Clifton Mews. Portobello boasts a rich heritage and was a favourite haunt of seafarers and smugglers throughout the 18th Century. Stories from the area feature many familiar historical figures such as William Wallace, Oliver Cromwell and Walter Scott.

McCarthy & Stone, the UK's leading developer of retirement homes and apartments, were the main contractor on this scenic project. A selection of Tobermore's Pedesta block paving, Tegula Setts and Textured Flag have been incorporated on the grounds to create a charming and unique landscape. Pedesta is featured in rich Golden and mellow Bracken. Pedesta is an aesthetic and highly versatile paving product made with a special hard wearing surface layer and deep vibrant colours, and is also a cost-effective landscaping solution. Pedesta is intertwined beautifully with Tegula Setts in Golden on the grounds. Tobermore’s Textured Flag in Buff / Golden works beautifully with these products as the unique granular surface and mellow tones of this flag creates a natural and timeworn appearance. The fantastic Jamarc Construction laid the beautiful paving products supplied by Tobermore.
