Quirky And Luxurious Show Home Design Revealed At Velare Place
30 Sep 2015

A luxuriously quirky interior design has given an exclusive touch to the show home at Velare Place in Sunbury where competition is hotting up for the last few properties.

Award-winning Linden Homes has just released the Executive Collection, which is the final phase of the popular development just a stone’s throw from the bustling banks of the River Thames. Just nine houses are left to be snapped up.

The show home is in The Hilary style: a five-bedroom semi-detached family property ranging across a spacious 1,960 square feet (182 square metres) over three storeys.

Designer Sharon Ingoldby, from Alexander James Interiors, explained: “The main objective of the design was to create a memorable show house that felt nothing like the regular sort you see every day.

“The scheme created is rustic yet modern with a homely country feel. I threw in elements of the quirky and industrial look to give it an edge which left prospective buyers with memories of a show house that is nothing like the norm.”

The colour palette is a neutral linen base with an accent of soft faded blues. Textiles are a mix of wools, woven fabrics and vintage linens: stretching from delicate faded paisley by Ralph Lauren to hand embroidered French cushions and bed throws.

Sharon added: “I wanted it to feel as if you were stepping into someone’s home that has over time been lovingly filled with pieces of furniture and memorabilia that could have been collected from flea markets, vintage shops and modern iconic London stores. Once all pulled together, it creates an eclectic mix that is still aspirational.”

The show home’s two sets of French windows open out both from the light and spacious living room and open plan kitchen/dining room into the landscaped back garden. A third door gives access from the rear of the garage.

The first floor holds the grand master bedroom with a generous en suite and dressing room. Bedroom two is also en suite, and a third room offers itself as a fifth bedroom or study. The top floor has two more bedrooms served by a family bathroom.

Dylan May, land, sales and marketing director at Linden Homes South East, said: “As well as highlighting the quality of the properties at Velare Place, we hope the show home will give our visitors decorating ideas that are as individual as they are.

“There are only nine homes left at Velare Place, and with the Executive Collection we’ve left the best until last. We’re urging people not to delay but to come and visit soon to avoid missing out.”

Velare Place, off Fordbridge Road, comprises spacious and stylishly designed two, three, four and five-bedroom houses, as well as a limited set of two-bedroom apartments. A gated entrance provides an extra feeling of security and exclusivity.

On the doorstep are the quaint streets of Sunbury, with its green spaces, shops and eateries. It is in the borough of Spelthorne and rubs shoulders with genteel Richmond-upon-Thames.

From Sunbury train station services reach London Waterloo in as little as 46 minutes; the direct service from nearby Walton-on-Thames is just 30 minutes. Junction 1 of the M3 lies 1.5 miles away and Heathrow Airport is just a 20-minute drive.

Each property at Velare Place also comes with integrated kitchen appliances as standard plus a 10-year NHBC warranty and a two-year customer care warranty.
