Crystal Park sparkles this Christmas

11th December 2011 Print
Crystal Park

Aptly named, Crystal Park (phase II) is set to sparkle this festive season with the opening of the beautifully presented Rosebery and Salisbury showhomes from award-winning housebuilder Bellway Homes.

Situated within the popular North Lanarkshire town of Airdrie, Crystal Park is a substantial development of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

A thoughtful palette of colour has been used throughout both homes, creating light interiors to ensure that whatever the weather’s like outside this winter, you will be enjoying warmer climes inside the Rosebery and the Salisbury.

Fraser Conn, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Homes, says: “Crystal Park continues to perform well for Bellway Homes. It is a development that ticks all the boxes for buyers in terms of location, high quality specification, choice of homes available and pricing.

“The launch of the Rosebery and the Salisbury take the total number of showhomes we have opened in 2011 to an impressive 16.. We’ve been extremely proactive this year, in bringing both new sites on board and launching showhomes, to ensure we’re contributing to driving the market forward at every opportunity.“

The Rosebery is an exceptionally well planned three-bedroom detached property, ideal for the young family buyer.

The impressively long lounge of the Rosebery has been decorated with the softest of touches. An Egyptian gold carpet runs the full length of the room into the adjoining dining area, reminding one of a sandy beach. The two cream sofas feature a mixture of rich chocolate and soft calico cushions.

The glass side board in the lounge, home to a large plasma screen, and matching coffee table each sit on top of elegant arched chrome legs, giving the impression that the TV and ornaments are floating on air. The main feature wall is covered in golden embossed wallpaper, matching the gold edging of the ebony velvet dining room chairs and the curtains that adorn the French doors. A large mirror hangs on the wall next to the dining table adds to the abundance of light in this room.

The kitchen is a fusion of practicality and simplicity. The cream kitchen units, with their oblong chrome handles, are the perfect contrast to the mahogany work surfaces and stainless steel cooker, hob, splash-back and cooker hood. The beech effect wood flooring adds warmth as well as being a sensible choice for a room that will see a lot of activity.

On the upper floor, three delightful bedrooms await viewers. Both the en-suite master bedroom and the second bedroom have been decorated in similar tones and colours to the lounge. Gold wallpaper is displayed on the main feature wall of both rooms. The use of velvet and satin headboards, champagne coloured bed throws and golden and taupe cushions create two interiors that exude a feeling of luxury.

The third bedroom of the Rosebery is altogether different. The silver, bubbled design of the wallpaper on the main wall creates a real ‘wow factor’, as too does the mirrored dressing table with its white leather padded front and French styled silver and white chair. The bedspread is covered in a symmetrical pattern of black and white spirals with silver and feathery edged cushions adding the finishing touches.

Next door, the four-bedroom detached Salisbury is a sprawling family home with an exquisite interior.

The lounge offers sumptuous surroundings such as the two cream velvet sofas and a claret and cream armchair, ensuring there is ample seating. A striking ebony coffee table almost takes centre stage, but is overshadowed by the mirrored console table, with its arched base, and a large porthole mirror that is set against champagne coloured wallpaper. Champagne is again picked up in the understated curtains draped either side of the bay widow, with a splash of colour added via a gold and claret pelmet. A stylish mirrored vase sits in the corner of the room, providing a display of white orchids.

The separate dining room within the Salisbury has been set for fine dining. A circular glass table is surrounded by six purple velvet chairs - delicate thrones that are sure to provide the ultimate in comfort for dinner guests. The crisp, white walls allow the accent colours of claret and plum in the curtains and ornaments to add warmth. A glass chandelier above the dining table is sure to be a talking point among guests.

The kitchen has been finished to ensure it appeals to both male and female in equal measure, as it is a brand new design from Bellway, incorporating a bank of fitted units. The polished black fitted units harmonise with the clean lines of the white work surfaces and walls. The chrome hob, cookerhood and glass splash-back further add to the streamlined look of this room. A separate utility room neighbours the kitchen, displaying the same units, allowing the rooms to flow together. A downstairs cloakroom completes this level of the Salisbury.

On the upper floor, the en-suite master bedroom has the feel of a boutique hotel. A large, silver satin headboard with chocolate centre and a mushroom and plum coloured bedspread, fashion a luxurious sleeping chamber. The chaise lounge under the bay window is the perfect area to de-stress and relax with a good book. The three-tier glass light above the bed is visually pleasing to the eye. On either side of the headboard, mosaics of large mirrored tiles allow light bounce from the bay window, creating a light and airy interior.

The second bedroom is altogether much quirkier than the rest of the property and would make the ideal guest room. The main wall features a montage of silver and white boxes, a pattern that has also been cleverly incorporated within the headboards of the two single beds. The bedcovers are predominately black with colour from camel throws, nougat pillowcases and a taupe carpet. Every colour used within this room is thoughtfully featured in the striped Roman blind.

Bedroom three returns to the main palette used throughout the Salisbury. A deep plum velvet headboard, matching curtains and scatter cushions ensure this room is both stylish and snug. The striped grey and white bedclothes effortlessly complement the silvery bauble design of the wallpaper surrounding the bed.

Bedroom four has been designed with a young teenager in mind. Photographs of pop star ‘Jesse J’ feature on one of the walls against a backdrop of red and white chequered wallpaper. A crimson bed valance and an assortment of vibrant scatter cushions add a splash of colour against the remaining white walls, bedside table and bedspread.

Situated on the former site of Boot’s depot, Crystal Park enjoys a location that benefits from all the requisites of modern living. From a choice of local schools, both primary and secondary, to shopping and leisure facilities, the development perfectly showcases suburban living at its best.

Excellent road links, via the A8 and M8, make for an easy daily commute across the central belt. Drumgelloch Railway Station is within walking distance of Crystal Park and provides a regular service to Glasgow’s Queen Street Station.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Airdrie has a number of golf courses within easy reach of the development as well as Drumpellier Country Park, which provides more than 500 acres of woodlands, lochs and walkways.

Prices at Crystal Park are currently released from £155,500 and Bellway Homes currently had a range of incentive options available for buyers.
