Part Exchange Your Way to a Penthouse Lifestyle

by Heather Peebles

Monday, July 14th, 2014

House hunters with a yen for high living but an eye for v02 Lounge at Fairmileheadalue are being offered the perfect compromise – the chance to part exchange their way to a luxury penthouse.

The light-filled, three-bedroom home sits atop the apartment building which is part of the multi award-winning Trinity Park development in Edinburgh, by CALA Homes

Not only does the flexible accommodation offer something to catch the eye for a wide range of potential owners, the part exchange service promises to make any move quick, simple and more readily affordable.

Sarah Stanger, Sales and Marketing Director for CALA Homes (East), said: “The word ‘penthouse’ conjures up images of something that bit special and maybe even out of reach.

“While our Craig Penthouse is certainly special, the quality and lifestyle it offers couldn’t be more accessible, whether you’re looking for an alternative family home or you are downsizing.

“I have no doubt people will be surprised to learn that they can part exchange their way to a penthouse, which takes away a huge chunk of worry about selling an existing home.

“In fact, we want them to be surprised, as we hope a whole range of people who wouldn’t normally picture themselves in a penthouse will come and view this property – they’ll be surprised all over again.”


The penthouse is one of two at Trinity Park, which has garnered numerous awards and plaudits with its New Town inspired layout, dimensions and elegance.

With its mixture of 5 bedroom Georgian Villas, spacious semi-detached, 3 bedroom large mews-style homes and 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, it has proved a magnet for families, professional couples and retirees creating a dynamic community.

In the penthouse, floor-to-ceiling windows lead out on to terraced areas with panoramic views, just one of the features that makes this property ideal for anyone who loves entertaining.

The expansive kitchen-dining area can easily accommodate many guests, making the perfect space to cook and entertain at the same time. Meanwhile, with three bedrooms – all with en suite facilities which have underfloor heating – are ideal for hosting overnight guests.

Yet, if peace and quiet is the order of the day, the location is perfectly tranquil. As the only property on the top floor, when the lift delivers you to the landing it feels like you are already in your home.

When guests have packed up and gone, the breakfast bar is ideal for couples, who can still make the most of the well-equipped kitchen with its pop up power points, granite work tops, integrated instant boiling water tap and ceramic induction hob.

Likewise, when the weather is favourable, the outdoor areas give a peaceful outlook – particularly from the kitchen area, overlooking the mature trees within the listed walls of the site boundary.

Since the property also comes with two private parking spaces and the building is secure and factored, it is also likely to appeal to ex pats who return to Scotland intermittently and like to catch up with friends and family while in town.

Sarah Stanger added: “We know that this kind of secure, private property is ideal for those who either travel a lot or perhaps work abroad and need a ‘lock and leave’ base in the city.

“However, it is such a flexible, wonderful space, it could just as easily appeal to a family with a couple of teenage kids who would love having their own en suite in their bedrooms.

“That is why we are urging people to put aside preconceptions about what a penthouse is. Come along and see for yourself.”

With a footprint of 2030 sq ft, the penthouse also comprises a large airy lounge and an impressive hallway, designed to double as a study area with floor to ceiling windows leading directly out onto a south-facing terrace.

As well as warm, honey-coloured oak flooring, it is equipped with electric blinds that diffuse lights throughout. There is also extensive storage space.

The apartment is available for £845,000 and potential buyers can also look at CALA’s respected part exchange service..
