Our Dow Show Home is one of the smaller 3 bed homes we are building at Caerlee Mill, as with all our homes it has generous open plan living space, an abundance of natural light and good storage.
We have designed a well proportioned vestibule space, with room for a baby buggy, a beloved bike or a basket for the dog. Somewhere to greet your guests and hang their coats, or drop your muddy boots when back from a walk to the top of Caerlee hill.
The vestibule has a glazed door which leads to the open plan ground floor. The fully integrated kitchen is at the heart of this home.
The German kitchen from Ayr based Creative Designs, comes in a variety of door colour choices and worktops to suit your own interior design. For the Show Home we have opted for a neutral white with oak effect cashmere grey worktop and shown the optional upgrade door handle. The Bosch appliances in the show home all come as standard, and are included in the price of your home. We have opted for the upgrade kitchen tap.
We have built the washing machine into its own cupboard, to keep it tucked away and give somewhere to store all those laundry essentials. The space under the stairs also provides additional storage and access to your meters and BT Fibre connection. Homes at Caerlee Mill have full fibre connection and speeds in excess of 100MG, so plenty for homeworking, video streaming and gaming. There is also a ground floor WC – we have chosen to use the fabulous mosaic tiles from Collinson Ceramics that echo distant knitting patterns from Caerlee Mill.
At the front of the house, we have created a Dining Space, which can we used for dining, home schooling or an office. The window looks onto the street so you can choose to look out and see who is passing or pretend to be deep in conversation on the phone. The rear of the house is your living area, with large sliding patio doors to the garden. The ground floor of the show home has been floored throughout in Amitico emphasising the flow of the house and connection of the spaces.
Upstairs, light fills the landing and our show home has great views of the surrounding village countryside. The master bedroom has deep fully fitted wardrobes, with bi-fold doors.
Our houses have a dual control heating system for the ground and upper floor – with the control for the upstairs in the master bedroom. The Dow has a second double bedroom and a third single bedroom for children or a great home office. The landing also has a great size cupboard.
The family bathroom has back to wall white porcelain sanitaryware and Grohe chrome fittings. We offer a choice of tiling and countertops, to give a sleek hotel bathroom feel with a shower fitted over the bath and tiling to all walls around the bath area to the ceiling as standard
We have furnished the show home, with choices from high street suppliers, and local makes who upcycle and create lovely new unique items. We all have a piece of beloved furniture and not everyone can, or should buy, everything brand new when there are so many great ways to incorporate older pieces and memories into your new home. We all know that buying a new home is probably the biggest financial commitment you will make. We wanted to show that you can furnish your home simply and to a budget and then just fill it with love.
