Award-winning housebuilder, Bellway Homes is offering prospective buyers a taste of inspirational living with the launch of the sumptuous new ‘Wellington’ showhome at The Drumlins in Gartcosh, North Lanarkshire.

Located off Johnston Road, The Drumlins offers a selection of spacious three and four bedroom semi-detached and detached family homes in a tranquil village location under ten miles east of Glasgow.

Bellway’s interior design team has worked its magic on the ‘Wellington’ showhome by introducing elegant soft furnishings, striking artwork, contemporary colour schemes and attention to every detail.

The large bay window floods the spacious lounge with natural light, making it a perfect space for all the family to relax in. The walls are a classic combination of dove grey and crisp white, matched by a deep grey luxurious carpet, curtains and velvety corner sofa. Vibrant splashes of turquoise, amber and emerald green enhance the more classic tones in the scatter cushions and ornaments. A large glass coffee table and elegant chandelier make the centrepiece of the room, along with a flat screen plasma TV and retro media unit.

The separate chic dining area benefits from French windows, which lead diners and guests directly into a landscaped garden. This decadent, grown-up room has been enhanced by a stunning modern chandelier, ornate floor-to-ceiling mirrors, architectural designer wallpaper and white marble floor tiles. The glass dining table has been set for guests, complete with elegant white dinnerware, cream leather dining chairs with turquoise cushions and a stunning centrepiece of four white globe alliums in black glass vases.

The contemporary kitchen is a food lover’s dream, offering a sleek combination of glossy black and oak units, stainless steel cooker and splashback, limestone floor and views of the garden. Masses of storage space and a separate utility room make it practical area to work in as well as being a beautiful space to entertain.

The four bedrooms, including master and second room with en-suite shower rooms, have been treated to an eye-catching mix of clean white walls with splashes of bold and vibrant furnishings.

The master bedroom is light and airy, providing a sophisticated evening retreat for its discerning residents. The large bay window bounces light around this well-planned room, which has been finished with metallic silver wallpaper and soft dove grey carpet. The bold crimson accent colour on the light shades, modern artwork and cushions complement the classic pure white bed linen and walls. Mirrored built-in wardrobes provide ample storage space, along with matching retro dressing table and bedside tables. The master en-suite shower room is fitted with a classic white suite, slate tiles and crimson-coloured bathroom accessories.

The second bedroom has been decorated in stripy silver wallpaper and contrasting pure white walls. The contemporary look is finished off with sliver bedside tables, matching lamps and dressing table, along with a white leather swivel easy chair and a retro silver mirror. The accent colour of turquoise in the bed linen and scatter cushions is enhanced by a strip of pink neon light behind the head board. This bedroom also enjoys French windows framed with flowing white voile that open on to a Juliet balcony.

In bedroom three, the feature wall behind the bed is a riot of primary-coloured flowers that catch your eye as soon as you step into this room, as too does the floating white shelving and series of five white globe lights suspended above the bed. The classic white and dove grey colour scheme is harmonised by the red and stripy turquoise cushions nestled on the bed.

The fourth-bedroom is the ideal child’s room, with its playful, cheerful and warm feel. Striking red and green zoo animals feature on the wall, while a chunky red knitted throw covers the bed, as does a collection of soft toys for youngsters to make friends with when they visit.

Fraser Conn, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes, said: “We’ve gone the extra mile to create a stylish and relaxing ambience at our latest showhome.
