Showhome is cosy whatever the weather

Showhome is cosy whatever the weather
Buyers who are looking for a new property in 2017 should pay a visit to the new Roxburgh Corner showhome which has just been launched at Walker Group’s Ellwood in Kirkliston. 

Jam-packed with interior inspiration from Kassie Andrews of Kabe Design, the five bedroom home has been decorated in a soft palette of muted winter morning greys and pale purples, and gives a taste of the lifestyle on offer at the development.      

A truly grand property, the Roxburgh Corner features an impressive entrance hall with lots of room to hang coats and jackets, leading off to the front facing lounge.

The luxurious lounge is the ideal hide away from the cold and wet weather with its faux fur throw and elegant fireplace. A heather sofa with metallic and white fur cushions looks fantastic against dove grey walls and a gold and glass coffee table. Adding to the opulent look is the impressive crystal drop chandelier and gold table lamp. 

Next door is the family room, the perfect place to relax in front of the television on the inviting corner sofa. In this room cloud greys are teamed to bold effect with royal blue feature walls and navy accessories. With large windows on one wall and French doors leading out to the garden, this room is filled with light and a great vantage point to watch the seasons change.  An adaptable space, it could equally well be used as a dining room or study.

The large open plan kitchen features pale grey units with blue accessories and a beautiful herringbone wood effect Amtico floor. The dining area, with its glass table and copper pendant lamp and tableware, is great for an intimate dinner party or family conference. 

A separate utility, generously proportioned cloakroom and double integrated garage complete the ground floor. 

Upstairs is the sumptuous master suite which has a gorgeous bed with sophisticated button headboard, mauve bedcover and grey silk curtains. A silver dressing table and a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room make this every style queen’s dream room. There is also a large ensuite with generous shower-room. 

Soft grey also appears in bedroom two which has a very contemporary feel with its light up neon Love sign and abstract print cushions in teals and blues. The grey wooden bed and drawers, add to the muted charm of this serene space. This bedroom also benefits from an ensuite. 

Globetrotters will love the study with its battered trunks for storing documents and vintage desk teamed with ultra-modern industrial style lamps.   

Forget primary colours and plastic toys, the boy’s bedroom with its neutral décor and graphic print cushions has a pared down Scandinavian feel. Its centrepiece is the wooden tepee bed where young astronauts, pirates or explorers can escape into a world of imagination.

Also breaking new ground is the nursery with its ochre walls and floor lamp and quirky prints and accessories. 

Sandy Casey, Director Walker Group, said: “At this time of year there is nothing nicer than coming out of the wind and rain into a welcoming house filled with soothing colours and beautiful things. Visitors will be undoubtedly inspired by the showhome to give their current homes a ‘winter’ makeover – simple things like adding faux fur throws and thick cable knit blankets are a great way to make sure your home is both cosy and on trend.” 

Prices for the Roxburgh housetype start from £375,000 and the showhome is open Thursday to Monday 11am-5.30pm.  
Situated in a beautiful setting less than ten miles from Edinburgh, making it the perfect location for commuters who want to enjoy all the benefits of rural living but within easy reach of the capital. It will feature 14 different types of home when complete.   

Traditional ‘extras’ such as stainless steel appliances, ceiling down lights in the kitchen and vanity units in ensuites all come as standard.
Ellwood is Walker Group’s fifth development in Kirkliston and will offer some of the company’s most sought after three, four and five bedroom homes, many with generous open plan kitchens, separate dining rooms, family rooms and en-suite bathrooms.

The development benefits from the charm of a village community and is within walking distance of the nursery and primary school.  It is a short distance from the local leisure centre with its gym, sports hall, all weather floodlit pitches, grass football pitch and outdoor tennis courts, perfect for fostering the talents of the next Andy or Jamie Murray. 

The community centre is also a hive of activity offering everything from Mums & Toddler Groups to art classes and samba drumming courses!

Kirkliston is a short drive away from Queensferry with its quaint cobbled streets lined with cafés where you can take a boat tour under the famous Forth Bridges. Also nearby is Hopetoun House one of Scotland’s most beautiful stately homes.  

Kirkliston’s close proximity to Edinburgh means that The Gyle shopping centre is nearby as well as the amenities of the capital. For outdoor enthusiasts there are a wealth of golf courses on the doorstep and Ratho Climbing Centre is less than a ten minute drive. Another popular destination in the area for families is Deep Sea World.
