VIDEO: Looking for a new house? Take a look inside this stunning showhome

You may have outgrown your current home; are perhaps looking to take your first step on the property ladder or looking to downsize to a smaller property, but these aren’t the only reasons to make a date to view Kirkwood Homes’ new showhome at its Slackbuie Drive development in Inverness.

It’s also worth going to visit the showhome if you’re looking for inspiration, because this three-bedroom detached house has been beautifully designed and decorated throughout.

The luxury home builder has created a superb family home that offers excellent value for money. The Craig-style showhome is priced from £254,995, and not surprisingly is one of the most popular house designs available.

Detached, and with a useful integrated garage from where there’s direct access to the house via a utility room – which means there’s no need to get soaked while unloading the shopping or family – it is an excellent example of the type of homes available at this development in the Highland capital.

Justine Winter, lead designer at Orchid Newton, designed the interior of the showhome and used the surroundings and the luxury finish of a Kirkwood Home to influence the Norse styling of this showhome.

Visitors will be impressed by the interior design and decor which is very attractive, fresh and modern and includes several interesting style features. For example, one of the bedrooms has been decorated to look like the interior of a sturdy log cabin, something you can imagine young boys or girls loving.

The accommodation begins with a wide hallway which gives access to the lounge, family dining room/kitchem, a well-appointed cloakroom and stairs leading to the upper floor.

The lounge is a lovely bright room overlooking the front garden, while at the rear of the house there’s a large, tastefully decorated open-plan family/dining room with french doors giving direct access to the rear garden.

The luxury kitchen is well appointed and spacious, and from here there’s access to the utility room which in turn gives access to the garage.

Moving upstairs, the first floor of The Craig has three sizeable bedrooms, each of which comes with fitted wardrobes. The master bedroom also benefits form an exceptionally spacious and luxurious en-suite bathroom.

A touch of luxury can also be found in the family bathroom, while the upper hall also has a substantial linen cupboard.

On hand at the showhome to guide viewers around and answer any questions they may have is sales advisor Belinda Thomson. The showhome is open from Thursday to Monday, 11am-5pm.

Kirkwood Homes has been building and selling premium homes for more than 30 years and has a well-deserved reputation for its superior quality and high level of standard specification and finish in each home.

The Slackbuie Drive development will feature 60 homes – three-bedroom terraced, semi-detached and three and four-bedroom detached homes all finished to a high standard.

House types available include The Keir, The Craig and The Morven, each finished with German Häcker kitchens, Quartz worktops and Siemens appliances – all as standard.

Prices at Slackbuie Drive are: The Atholl from £289,995; The Morrison from £294,995; The Morven from £284,995; The Craig from £254,995; The Struan from £244,995; The Tewel from £209,995 and The Keir from £197,995.

Located in the popular residential area of Slackbuie, the development is situated close to superb local facilities, sought-after schools and is only a few minutes’ drive away from the busy city centre of Inverness which has lots of shops, restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.

Colin Crombie, managing director of Kirkwood Homes, said: “Our expansion into Inverness has had a successful start with our two developments, Essich Meadows and Slackbuie Drive launching around the same time.

“We have seen an increase in demand for high-quality property in this area; this combined by our growth as a company has prompted our expansion into the area.

“Due to a cancellation we only have one home remaining at Essich Meadows and Slackbuie Drive has just under half available plots reserved. I would strongly recommend visiting the showhome to get a true sense of Kirkwood Homes’ quality and luxury finish.”
