Dress to Impress at Hopefield Park
Ever since Carrie Bradshaw twirled around in the dressing room of her new penthouse, walk-in wardrobes have been high on the wish list of every fashion-loving home owner.
Such is the appetite for this extra touch of luxury, that in London some apartments now even come with a dressing room instead of a spare bedroom.
To meet the demand for this ultimate status symbol, Walker Group has just released the five bedroom Oakleigh house type at Hopefield Park in Bonnyrigg, which comes with an envy-inducing master bedroom with ensuite and its own dressing area.
Sandy Casey, Director, Walker Group said: “The trend for walk-in closets really started in America thanks to Sex in the City and reality shows such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians, where the wardrobes are as lavish as the clothes displayed in them.
“Dressing rooms are no longer seen as just a luxury for the rich and famous, more and more home buyers are asking for them. It’s not just women either they appeal to men too, who like the idea of having somewhere to hang their shirts and store their shoes.”
Priced from £389,000, the Oakleigh, has the other ultimate status symbol – a showstopping open-plan kitchen with dining area and family room. A welcoming hall, spacious lounge, utility, downstairs cloakroom and integral garage complete the ground floor.
Upstairs along with the master suite, there are a further four bedrooms with a Jack and Jill bathroom separating bedrooms two and three. There is also a family bathroom.
Other properties currently available for the reservation include the five bedroom Culdearn priced from £391,000 and the four bedroom Gladstone from £307,000.
Hopefield Park will feature 51 two, three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, with the first houses ready for occupation in early 2016.
Designed to be among their greenest homes yet, the properties have high performance insulation, double-glazing and energy-efficient heating systems. All homes are built to a high specification with fitted wardrobes, fridge freezers and excellent storage.
Bonnyrigg’s town centre, with its avenue of trees, has a selection of local stores including a chemist, bank and post office. A Tesco supermarket is a short drive away and larger high street stores are available at Straiton Retail Park.
