Leap into Spring at Hopefield Park

Leap into Spring at Hopefield Park
Playful pastels and floral prints create a Spring-like atmosphere in the new Oakleigh showhome just launched at Hopefield Park in Bonnyrigg. 

Using a palette of dreamy greys, sherbet pinks and chalky whites, designers Carol Yates and John Amabile have created an airy and welcoming family home which is already proving a hit with visitors to the development.     

Located in an elevated position with views of the surrounding countryside, this stylish five bedroom property has a bright open hallway which leads to an elegant formal lounge with a white linen buttoned sofa and chairs in soft blush pink velvet. Painted off white furniture stands out against the Designers Guild peony wall to wall curtains. 

The undoubted heart of the property is the huge Shaker style open plan kitchen, dining and family room with its pale grey painted units and French style circular dining table. Leather effect wallpaper, driftwood style floor-coverings and striking accessories add an extra touch of luxury, ensuring that spending time there doing even the most everyday tasks would be a pleasure rather than a chore. With a separate utility room, even the noise of the washing machine would not be a distraction.

The family room offers fantastic views of the beautifully landscaped garden and is a great place to relax on the cream sofa and catch up on favourite television shows. Brightly coloured cushions with purple, indigo and Kingfisher blue accents, a stripy purple rug and curtains with an abstract botanical print, make this a bold and beautiful place to spend time. 

It would be hard to imagine a bedroom which encapsulates Spring better than the master of the Oakleigh. With its floral bedcover, lime wallpaper, white painted bed and voile curtains, this room is the perfect antidote to the cold and greyness outside and radiates warmth and sunshine. An ensuite shower room and dressing room complete the master suite. 
Equally uplifting are the monochrome second bedroom and the opulent third bedroom in which the designers have layered metallic fabrics and wallcoverings for the ultimate in contemporary luxury. 

The girl’s bedroom is a master class on how to make a strong statement with pattern while not overpowering a room. Delicate grey and cream toile wallpaper with contrasting bedcovers give this room a romantic look with bold shots of cerise pink, adding a design edge. 

Home workers will love the study where the designers have ignored the convention for plain, functional workspaces and created a luxurious colonial look with a dramatic dark wooden desk, a sumptuous velvet sofa and a striking elephant patterned blind.  

Sandy Casey, Director of Walker Group, said: “After the winter we have had, we all need a little sunshine in our lives and this showhome really captures the freshness of Spring. 

“The showhome has fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and the designers have really brought the outdoors inside with their use of floral prints and arrangements of hyacinths and hydrangeas.  

“The showhome not only looks beautiful but the designers have also managed to make it feel like a home too.”  

Hopefield Park will feature 51 two, three, four and five bedroom family homes when complete. Prices for homes start from £270,000 for the four bedroom Kidston, with the Oakleigh costing from £390,000. 

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.                                                                  

Further information is available on 01506 413 101 or www.walkergroup.co.uk. The new showhome is open from Thursday to Monday from 11-5.30pm.
