An Apartment So Big You’ll Forget You’re Meant to be Downsizing

Craig Penthouse Kitchen-DiningFamilies looking to downsize but desperate not to leave the area they love are being offered a final chance to settle in one of Edinburgh’s most talked about new developments.

Trinity Park in the capital has garnered numerous awards and plaudits with its New Town inspired layout, dimensions and elegance.

Among the properties on the market were a small number of apartments and now the last of them is being released to an expectant market.

With the Trinity Park development – with its mixture of Georgian Villas, large mews-style homes and penthouses – has proved a hit with families, the apartments have been particularly attractive to older home owners.

Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director at CALA Homes (East) said: ”It’s not surprising the apartments have proved so popular with downsizers, because they are extremely spacious.

”As well as three bedrooms, a dining kitchen with seperate utility room, there is also great storage, which is important because cupboard space can so often be a let down in apartments. That is definitely not the case here.

”Perhaps the biggest draw is the size of the living room, which is really shown off with those high ceilings. For those moving in from big, traditional properties, there will be absolutely no worries about having to part with much love furnishings.”


Sarah also pointed out that previous apartments had proved popular with storage movers desperate to stay within the Trinity area.

She added: ”Indeed, we often found families came to visit first because they wanted to help their parents to find the right place, to encourage them to move out of family homes where they had lived for years, but that had become too big to manage.

”This could be the last chance for families in that situation to get this type of property, especially if they are keen to stay in the Trinity area”

Another reason the development has attracted downsizers is because they not only get a large, safe, secure and accessible apartment, they are still part of a thriving, dynamic and diverse community.

Sarah said: ”The happy buyers living in Trinity include those with young children, older families, young professionals and everything in between – it really does offer a diverse community.”

The former show apartment is the biggest of the 2 and 3 bedroom properties and the only one with 2.75m high ceilings. The ground floor home also has south facing lounge and kitchen windows, with access onto the private, shared garden area.

Within the property, the master bedroom has en-suite facilities. The Third bedroom could easily be used as a TV room, office or seperate dining room.

As the former show apartements, the 1308 sq ft property comes fully floored with a beautiful selection of soft furnishings, as chosen by our professional interior designers, including light fittings, window dressings, mirrors and artwork.

The apartment is available for £475,000 and potential buyers can also look at CALA’s respected part exchange service.
