Walker Group says Au Revoir to The Braes' Showhome
We may be leaving the European Union soon but the UK’s love affair with French design remains as strong as ever.

Buyers of Walker Group’s newly released showhome at The Braes in Falkirk will forever be able celebrate Parisian chic.

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.

Priced at £310,000, it comes complete with a fully landscaped garden, upgraded flooring, all light fittings and window dressings. It will be ready for entry in November.

When it comes to luxury it would be hard to beat the sumptuous lounge with its herringbone wooden floor, taupe walls and subtly patterned curtains, offering the perfect neutral backdrop for the buyer’s own furniture.

By contrast the large open plan kitchen with dining area and family room, is a master class in cool with pale grey units teamed with graphic grey and cream print blinds at the kitchen window and matching curtains framing the patio doors leading out to the lush garden. The extremely generous separate utility room with wooden worktops and grey units 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, with ensuite, features a dramatic teal feature wall and intricately patterned brass light shade adding a design edge.

The second bedroom has a fresh, youthful feel with its candy pink striped curtains, cream carpets and trendy giant bulb light fittings. The third bedroom is equally serene with its soft pale grey and pink colour scheme and curtains with a beautiful floral design, 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 of all time, it has such a luxurious and warm feel about it and will make a wonderful family home.

“We are sad to be leaving The Braes as it’s such a lovely, warm and welcoming community has developed there. Working there has been a real pleasure for all of the Walker Group team.”
