A baby grand piano emphasises the spaciousness of Elan’s show home lounge at The Larches.

WITH a baby grand piano in the lounge, the décor of the new show home speaks volumes of the grandeur of the properties at The Larches in Wilmslow.

The new Hazelmere style show home has recently opened at the Elan Homes development, providing the perfect showcase for the superb specification spacious properties now available in one of the North West’s most desirable neighbourhoods.

Elan enlisted the help of Whitchurch-based Stanza Style to create the impression of an aspirational family home visitors will long to call their own.

“Sumptuous, modern, affluent style sums up the show home at The Larches perfectly,” says Alex Egan, from Stanza Style,

“We’ve created a modern, classical tonal scheme using a colour palette of black, taupe and mushroom with lots of satins, velvets and lovely embroidered fabrics to add texture and colour.


“We’ve also taken into account the lifestyle of the people who might live here and by adding a baby grand piano in the lounge we’ve been able to demonstrate how spacious this room is, while adding to the  sense of grandeur.  It’s a real talking point with visitors.”

The convivial open plan kitchen, breakfast area and family room is essentially the backbone of the property, providing a focal point for daily life. The kitchen is the centre piece of this sociable space, with a dining table at one end and a corner sofa, fluffy rug and board game at the other giving the family area a cosy den like feel.

While the breakfast area is the perfect place for relaxed family meal times, there’s also a formal dining room furnished with mirrored dining table and black high-back chairs.

Emphasising the sense of space, the hallway features a large vertical bevelled mirror. There’s also a statement mirror on the landing.

The high ceiling to the stairwell, plus the big picture window on the landing draws visitors’ attention.

“In the master bedroom we’ve used lots of satins and slate grey tones with cream gloss furniture with diamante handles to create a glamorous yet moody look. In contrast, the second bedroom, which we’ve styled as a guest room, has a more masculine feel with a trunk at the end of the bed and gorgeous high gloss solid furniture,” Alex adds.

“We’ve imagined that bedroom three belongs to a young teenager called Evie and have styled her room with a mix of black and rustic wood, with a fur throw to add texture and colour.

“The fourth bedroom is that of an aspiring architect, who’s perhaps a university student. We’ve furnished this room with metal bedside tables that complement a mural of a French train station behind the bed and included a set of plans, a drawing board and acrylic statue.”

The fifth bedroom is styled as a nursery using subtle pale grey and blue with elephants and kites on the wallpaper and complete with crib and changing table.

A flock of birds adorns the wallpaper in the downstairs cloakroom, while geometric patterns on the slate grey bathroom towels add to the overall feel of this being a sumptuous modern home of someone who lives an affluent lifestyle.

There are three styles of homes available at The Larches, with prices from £799,995. A Hazelmere style property, similar to the show home is available from £849,995.

The carefully selected specification at The Laches includes choice of modern fitted kitchens, with integrated Smeg appliances, plus soft close cupboard doors and a choice of floor tiling. Bathrooms and en-suites will feature contemporary white suites with a choice of wall tiling and vanities.

Smart home hidden wire systems are included, providing the very best entertainment and high-speed internet access in every room. It can also be used for high definition video distribution, CCTV, mobile device charging and extending Wi-Fi range or to enable homeowners to take charge of their heating intelligently with the potential to reduce energy bills.

The homes at The Larches are ideally situated in Cheshire’s ‘golden triangle’ with shops, café bars, restaurants and a choice of top performing schools nearby.

The luxurious Elan show home is no open Thursday to Monday from 10am to 5pm.For more information about the latest developments see here or call 0845 219 0919.
