Escape to the Tropics at Long Meadow
Walker Group is unveiling a tropical inspired luxury showhome at its Long Meadow development in the historic village of Ormiston near Tranent in East Lothian on Saturday 2nd of February.

Designer Carol Yates has used palm tree prints, ocean blues and jewel bright golds, turquoises and jades in the four bedroom Dennington Corner which perfectly showcases the high specification, spaciousness, quality and stylish finishes of the properties on offer at this sought-after development.

It opens at 11 am on Saturday and Sunday and visitors will have a chance to look round and enjoy a glass of fizz.

Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group, said: “At this time of the year the good weather seems such a long way away so it is lovely to come into the showhome which has such a warm, sunny feel about it.”

A stylish family home, the Dennington Corner is perfect for entertaining with its large open plan kitchen with family area, separate utility and spacious lounge.

The ground floor also boasts a multi-functional room which has been dressed as family room, but could equally well be used as study or fifth bedroom.

Upstairs the master bedroom has its own dressing room and an ensuite, there are three further bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom.

Long Meadow will feature 54 three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete, located 14 miles from Edinburgh. The first homes are expected to be ready for occupation in the Autumn.
