The Essence Of Country Living At Wilshere Park
05 May 2015

Wilshere Park is Linden Homes’ exclusive community in the countryside. Surrounded by the beautiful landscape of rural Hertfordshire, it is also close to the old village of Welwyn.

With Welwyn North station just over 2 miles away and Welwyn Garden City station just under 3 miles away, the Wilshere Park homes are located perfectly for families and households who need to commute to the city, but appreciate country living.

But this development is no compromise: The houses have been expertly designed with beautiful traditional features. The fixtures and fittings, the architecture, the space and layout of the homes all combine expertly so the homes exude a powerful sense of well-being, style and comfort.

The interiors of the show homes at Wilshere Park have been designed to reflect these attributes and bring the essence of country living to these modern homes.

Carrie Edwards, from the interior design consultancy Claude Hooper, says simple elegance was the corner stone of the brief for the show home design:

“The Wilshere Park show homes have been created inside to combine modern living and country living. That was the starting point and we’ve tried to achieve that using classic styling.

“In one of the show homes we have used ivories, greys, charcoal, and a mixture of blues and greens for a classic, elegant feel. We’ve used dark, solid wood to give depth to the very soft tonal colour scheme. Two of the bedrooms have been designed for teenagers: one with a classical music theme, the other with a sports theme. We’ve also created a media room – with vibrant library book wallpaper, in bedroom five (again for the children of the house.)

“The second show home is more traditional and depicts a classic country family home. It has a formal living room featuring vintage-style washed oak furniture. The home has been accessorised with traditional wicker baskets, comfy throws and Hunter wellies. Coat hooks accommodate the outdoor apparel for walking the dog. The décor features tones of ivory, fudge, slate and soft heather. Designs on the walls include botanical artwork downstairs and, in one of the bedrooms, equestrian wallpaper. The daughter’s room features horses, riding boots and vintage Black Beauty images; the son’s room has been designed for the young explorer and adventurer.”
