Best Of Both Worlds For Period House Hunters

Trinity Park in the capital has garnered numerous awards and plaudits with its New Town inspired layout, dimensions and elegance.
Now the people living in the homes have explained what gives them a warm glow about their new surroundings, including significant savings on energy bills.
Recent movers have praised the properties for delivering the best of both worlds, by combining the most sought after aspects of elegant period living with contemporary perks and modern benefits.
Lili Lyall, who is retired moved into the development after downsizing from a traditional seven-room period property in Salt Lake City. She spent a great deal of time viewing options before moving to Edinburgh to downsize and is delighted she chose a roomy two-bedroom apartment at Trinity Park.
Most notably, she has benefitted from the way her new property provides heat and insulation, delivering significant savings on her living costs.
Lili said: “My direct debit for my heating and energy provider is already 40% cheaper than what it was when I lived in the last property.
“I love traditional builds however my last home did have problems with cold air coming through the walls, probably because it was a traditional stone build.
“I have noticed a big difference with the temperature in my new home, which makes day to day living a lot easier and keeps my living costs down.”
While the Trinity Park development – with its mixture of Georgian Villas, large mews-style homes, apartments and penthouses – has proved a hit with downsizers and professional – it is also hugely attractive to families.
Mum-of-three Jacqui Macnamara is currently on maternity leave after the birth of her third child, so is delighted to have moved into one of CALA’s roomy Georgian Villa’s where her family will have plenty of room as they grow up.
She has also noticed a tremendous difference in regard to her heating and energy bills and said: “We’ve barely had the heating on all year. It’s incredible, the property stays consistently warm.
“We have lived at CALA’s Trinity Park development for more than a year now and we have definitely made a massive saving on our energy bills.
“My husband and I both love traditional houses, and have both lived in this style of property all our lives. The thing I love most about this house is that it combines modern and traditional together, with the high ceilings and traditional features, you genuinely can’t tell it’s a new build.
“The best part is there are no drafts or issues with floorboards because everything is pristine and completed already. It’s definitely a dream home to live in.”
There is currently a selection of Georgian style Villas, spacious mews and The Craig Penthouse available at CALA Home’s Trinity Park Development. For those looking for a Georgian Villa similar to the one purchased by the Macnamaras, Plot 28 is currently on the market for £710,000.
Trinity Park houses a range of developments, from Mews properties to Penthouses and Townhouses. Prices start from £535,000 and lead up to £965,000.
