The popularity of rare apartments in one of Scotland’s most sought after postcode has even surprised the developer.

CALA’s apartments in the affluent Fairmilehead area of Edinburgh have broken the mould in an area brimming with bungalows and detached properties.

The luxurious two & three bedroom apartments have been flying off the shelf with downsizers and young professionals liking the space and location on offer.

Following the success of the first two phases of apartments, which sold out in super quick time, CALA has just announced the release of the final block of the 2 & 3 bedroom apartments on the development.

A Resounding Success

Those craving a luxuriously spacious apartment in the sought-after EH10 area of the capital are being urged to be quick as it’s expected the newly released phase will follow in the success of the others as they cater to a market, currently trending in the capital.

Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East) said: “It’s safe to say that the apartments have been a resounding success at Fairmilehead. There are not many opportunities to buy apartments in the area, but we have been surprised by quite how fast they’re getting snapped up.

“Some buyers have mentioned the school catchment area with Buckstone Primary being a draw, others have mentioned the incredible golf courses in the area and the more active sports Hillend ski centre.

“However, the major trend seems to be buyers from within the area whose kids have left home and they no longer wish to maintain larger properties and gardens, and are in search of a convenient, low maintenance move. They are keen to stay within the area and don’t want to move away from everything it has to offer.

“The apartments are therefore the perfect solution as they allow people to stay in the postcode they love, while not having the worry of looking after a larger property.

“With our clever designs and generous proportions it means our buyers can enjoy an easy to maintain home without having to compromise on the quality of their property.”

Best of Both Worlds

Overlooking the Pentland Hills and situated less than 5 miles south of Edinburgh city centre in the highly desirable EH10 postcode, the beautifully proportioned, south west facing apartments, boast a stylish open plan kitchen lounge area, fitted with high specification appliances and ample storage space.

Located close to the main bypass the apartments are perfect for those looking to commute to both the city centre and out of town.

Meanwhile, lovers of outdoor pursuits can take advantage of the wealth of activities close to the apartments including the renowned Mortonhall Golf Course, Hillend dry ski slope and a range of bike and hiking trails in and around the Pentlands.

Sarah added: “Following the success of our previous phases of apartments, we’re expecting that the final few won’t be around for long so I’d encourage those interested to come along and visit the show apartment today.”

Among the range of two & three bedroom apartments is the current ‘Home of The Month’ Plot 41, the 2 bedroom top floor apartment now available with 100% Part Exchange and flooring lighting, fixtures and fittings all included.
