COUNTRY CHIC CHESHIRE SHOW HOME OPEN

Elan’s show home at The Hawthorns has a rural feel that’s both cosy and glamorous.

COMBINING modern country cosiness with added glamour and personality, a visit to the chic new show home at The Hawthorns in Lach Dennis is a must for Cheshire buyers hoping to sample rural village living at its best.


An intimate development from Elan Homes, The Hawthorns features just eight private sale properties, showcased by the Faversham show home.

It’s an attractive, double fronted property, offering 1,832 sq ft of carefully considered living space and with the help of Whitchurch-based Stanza Style it’s been dressed as an aspirational family home.

Alex Egan, from Stanza Style, said: “The décor we’ve chosen for the show home at The Hawthorns has a rural feel that’s both cosy and glamorous. We’ve used a palette of earthy tones of mink grey, taupe and burnt orange to create a warm and welcoming environment in which people can truly see themselves living in.”

In the lounge the mink grey and taupe tones are offset by a burnt orange rug and walnut tables plus circular mirror over the fire place.

Vertical striped wallpaper in the dining room creates a wood effect, and is complemented by ombre curtains, a beautiful stone based lamp plus white high gloss dining table with mink grey chairs.

While the lounge and dining room are ideal for entertaining, the combined kitchen, breakfast area and family room is at the heart of everyday living.

Feature wallpaper in the family area has a geometric print in orange, with a three seater chaise helping create a relaxing space; while the breakfast table set for five looks out to the garden.

An orange feature wall in the long galley kitchen offsets the white cabinets and drawers by adding a splash of colour.

A monthly planner in the utility shows that this is a busy family.

“We’ve had some fun with the design to reflect the personalities of the people we imagine might live there,” Alex added.

“One of the bedrooms has an art theme to it and so we enlisted the help of an aspiring teen artist to hand paint art work to complement the mural on the wall. We’ve accessorised this room with artist materials, while in an older teen’s room we’ve used basketball trainers to create a clock and also added other sporting memorabilia.”

There’s also a younger child’s bedroom with fun faces on the wallpaper and coordinating embroidered fabrics, plus soft toys on the day bed.

In the master bedroom there’s deep damask wall paper with an accent of burnt orange and a head board adorned with crystals for a touch of glamour.

A pussy willow bed head with matching cushions in the remaining bedroom adds a splash of colour to the earthy tones.

Four and five-bedroom homes at The Hawthorns are available from £534,995.

Situated off Common Lane, the new homes at The Hawthorns will enjoy green and pleasant surroundings accessed via a leafy road lined with oak trees and hawthorns.

Despite the leafy setting, homeowners will be able to make the most of a wealth of amenities in the surrounding area including the shops, bars and restaurants of Holmes Chapel, Northwich and Knutsford.

The Faversham show home at The Hawthorns is open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm. For more information, call 0845 293 8997 or see www.elan-homes.co.uk/developments/the-hawthorns.
