Few addresses on Edinburgh’s Southside are as well appointed as Greenhill Court to make the most of what the city has to offer. With its open outlook over Bruntsfield Links, it’s a stone’s throw from the cafés, bars, restaurants and boutiques of Bruntsfield Place and a short walk from Lothian Road and Edinburgh’s theatre district.
The building was formerly a hospital, built around a two storey Regency lodge, which was home to the pioneering doctor Sophia Jex-Blake, the first female general medical practitioner in Scotland. She converted the lodge into the Bruntsfield Hospital for Women and Children in 1898 and it was expanded in 1911 with the addition of a ward block along Whitehouse Loan.
Over the years the interior of the lodge had been altered beyond recognition, so a completely new interior was fashioned within the exterior walls, recreating the principal rooms and subdividing it into 3 new homes. The façade of the ward block was retained and incorporated into an elegant modern building, providing harmony between the various architectural styles, and creating a further 27 apartments.
