WITH its rural setting close to the River Stour, location has attracted buyers to new homes in Kinver and now a new show home is increasing their appeal.

Elan Homes recently opened the three-bedroom Whitley show home at The Hyde in the South Staffordshire village. Styled by professional interior designers, it demonstrates the versatility of the layout.

Elan regional sales director Tracey Ball said: “It’s due to customer demand that we have moved out of the original Malham show home and into the Whitley, because there was so much curiosity about the look and layout of this particular property.

“It’s bespoke to The Hyde and so the only way we could answer the many enquiries we’d had was to create this stunning new show home. It has certainly been proved the right thing to do with people looking at, and loving, this very desirable home.”

Available from £335,000, the Whitley is a three-bedroom, three storey semi-detached property, offering 949 sq ft of carefully planned living space.

At lower ground level it features an integral garage and utility, with a dedicated space for the washing machine and dryer.

On the ground floor, there’s an open plan kitchen and dining room with Juliet balcony, at the front of the property. The separate lounge is at the rear, with a French window feature looking out to the garden, and there’s also a convenient cloakroom.

Three bedrooms, one with en-suite, are on the first floor, together with a family bathroom.

“The layout very much speaks for itself, but we enlisted the expertise of Edward Thomas Interiors to design, style and furnish our show home, resulting in a beautiful, on trend home that buyers can imagine themselves – and dream about – living in,” added Tracey.

The colour palette is predominantly navy and emerald-green throughout, with gold accents in the furniture, artwork and accessories – look out for the eye-catching gold lily pad piece above the bed in the guest bedroom!

Andy Richardson, managing director at Edward Thomas Interiors, explained the rationale behind the styling.

“The Whitley is a three-storey townhouse ideal for first time buyers, couples or young families,” he said. “Our styling was designed to reflect the lifestyle of these purchasers, who are likely to be using the home as somewhere to relax, entertain and work.

“The main living areas, the lounge and kitchen, are both spacious rooms where we’ve been able to add bold patterns and fabrics to create a sense of luxury. Tropical leaf print wallpaper makes a feature wall for the lounge, while the kitchen includes a spectacular dome shaped gold light and wall-mounted gin bar!

“On the top floor, the two double bedrooms are styled as cosy retreats to relax and unwind, whilst the third bedroom is shown as a study, with navy geometric wallpaper, floating shelf and classic wooden desk.”

The Hyde currently features a choice of two and three-bedroom homes, available from £285,000.
