Effortless Parisian Chic Comes To The Braes
La vie est belle at Walker Group’s Braes development in Falkirk thanks to its new Parisian style showhome.
Designed by Carol Yates Interior Design, the four bedroom Gladstone home has been inspired by the 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 with its silk cushions in pinks and golds and petrol blue velvet chairs. A lustrous gold mirror and accessories add warmth to this most welcoming of rooms.
By contrast the large open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, is a master class in cool with its sheepskin throws and concrete topped dining table. Pale grey units are teamed with a herringbone wooden floor and graphic print blinds to great effect in the main part of the kitchen.
A charcoal sofa teamed with blue cushions and an oversized lamp sets the tone in the laid back family room. Abstract pictures and quirky accessories add to the avant-garde atmosphere.
The extremely generous separate utility room has loads of space for doing the laundry and is the perfect place for pets to sleep. There is also an integral garage and cloakroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs the dramatic master bedroom features an opulent black bed with navy and white bedcovers. Pale yellow and teal cushions, a yellow throw and an exuberant feather wall hanging add a design edge. A soft French style armchair is the ideal spot to relax with a book.
The second bedroom has a fresh, youthful feel with its candy pink striped curtains and a cream bed with a textured off-white throw. A sumptuous pile of cushions and picture emblazoned with the word silence is guaranteed to ensure sweet dreams.
The third bedroom is equally serene with its soft pale grey and pink colour scheme, while the fourth bedroom has a safari theme with unusual wallpaper featuring brightly coloured animal heads.
Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group said: “This is one of my favourite showhomes, it has such a luxurious and warm feel about it and is packed full of desirable things – it is a real curiosity shop of rare and exotic treasures. It is a million miles from the minimalist interiors which have dominated for so long and feels like a breath of fresh air.”
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.
