Showhome opening at The Braes in Falkirk

Showhome opening at The Braes in Falkirk

A new showhome with that certain je ne sais quoi is set to open at Walker Group's The Braes on 1st of April. 

Designed by Carol Yates Interior Design, the four bedroom Gladstone home has been inspired by the glamour, luxury and bohemian allure of the Left Bank or Rive Gauche in Paris historically home to artists, rebels and intellectuals.  

With its eclectic mix of patterns and textures, this beautiful property is full of surprises from the tribal themed boy’s bedroom to the over-sized Moroccan style chair in the kitchen.

When it comes to luxury it would be hard to beat the sumptuous lounge with its champagne salon-style button sofa and petrol blue velvet chairs. By contrast the large open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, is a master class in cool with its sheepskin throws and a concrete topped dining table.  There is a separate utility, an integral garage and cloakroom on the ground floor.  

Upstairs are four bedrooms including the dramatic master bedroom with its black and gold lacquer furniture and teal feature wall, with ensuite. There are a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom. 

The showhome opens at 11 am on Saturday 1st  and visitors will have the chance to look round and enjoy a glass of free fizz.

Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group said: “There is something amazing to catch visitors’ eyes in every room and Carol has managed to make the whole property not just incredibly luxurious but very comfortable and laid-back at the same time.  There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to this kind of interior scheme and it is a look that people can copy in their own homes – it isn’t about symmetry and everything matching, it is more about combining different things you love and bringing them together with clever accessories.”

The Braes will feature 73 three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete.  

Currently available for reservation is the three bedroom Belmont from £225,000, the four bedroom detached Lismore from £230,000 and the Canterbury four bed detached from £255,000.

With high quality finishes and fittings as standard, each property includes stylish and practical kitchens and bathrooms, along with high-efficiency heating systems and appliances to help ease carbon footprint concerns.

The Braes is the company’s seventh development in the area and represents a major investment for the Livingston headquartered and Scottish-owned Group. It follows the success of the company’s nearby Meadowcroft development.  

The new homes feature high specification fixtures and fittings such as integrated fridge freezers and turfed front gardens as standard. 

Local attractions include Callendar Park, an ideal place to spend the day exploring the woods, visiting the ornamental gardens or taking a boat trip on the loch. The Park is home to the magnificent Callendar House dating back to the 14th Century, which played host to Mary Queen of Scots, Oliver Cromwell, Bonnie Prince Charlie and Queen Victoria.  

The surrounding area offers renowned attractions such Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument and the Falkirk Wheel, as well as superb local amenities for shopping, sport and leisure.  

Excellent road and transport links allow easy access to all of central Scotland, whilst the thriving town of Falkirk is home to several top restaurants, bars and high street stores. 

Families are well catered for locally, with a number of respected schools in the area and Falkirk College providing excellent educational facilities.
