Burford House, a luxury six bedroom house in Kingswood built by award-winning housebuilder Millgate Homes, has recently unveiled its exquisite interior. Designed by Alexander James Interiors, it is classically stylish with a contemporary twist, perfectly suiting the elegant understated luxury for which Millgate Homes is renowned.

Robert Walker, managing director of Alexander James Interiors, says: “We’ve had fantastic feedback since the showhome launched; the scheme delivers the aspirational lifestyle of purchasers while showcasing all its practicalities that demonstrates this is all a very functional family home.”

The spacious hallway which is flooded by natural light, is accentuated by neutral colours, yet contrasting features such as thick dark picture frames ascending up the staircase and mirrored sculptures add a modern dynamic.

The large open plan kitchen, breakfast, dining area and orangery is the focal point of this family orientated home. With bifolding glass doors, the whole space can be instantly extended into the manicured garden. The stone patio is an idyllic place for relaxation with cushioned wicker sun loungers and a French grey wooden sun house set across the vast lawn.

The open plan living space itself is simplistic, yet detailed with subtle patterns and textures. Light coloured stone worktops contrast with the darker shaded chairs set at a large glass table. Both the kitchen and breakfast area have modern silver and black detailing throughout.

The drawing room has large sofas, mirrored tables and a stunning stone fireplace set against a black feature wall, ensuring the area is set with a timeless design ideal for formal entertaining.

The sumptuous master-bedroom suite occupies a large proportion of the first floor; it’s the epitome of luxury, with its own bathroom, dressing room and private terrace. Dressed with a large panelled eglomised mirror effect feature wall behind the bed with its almost full height headboard, the colour palette of creams, taupes, bronzes and dark zebrano exudes elegance.

There are three further bedroom suites on the first floor, all of which exude their own design; one has a feature wall of Venetian buildings, which is also echoed in accessories such as cushions on the bed.

The top floor is home to two more bedrooms, a games/media room and family bathroom. Artwork and accessories play a pivotal role within the house, with statement feature furniture including a chrome horses head and mirrored mannequin.

Alexander James Interiors and Millgate Homes have worked together to create the stunning interior of Burford house and showcase the impressively designed space which is capturing the imagination of potential buyers.

Robert Walker adds: “There is no doubt that beautiful interior design in a showhome is the ultimate complement to a high quality home. It also helps buyers to visualise the house as a home and because of this we’re now seeing an increasing number of purchasers choosing to buy the showhome complete with all the furnishings.

“The presentation of our showhomes has also led to the growth of our private commissions. Many of these are buyers who purchase other homes on the same development but want their home to reflect the same style of the showhome, but we’ve also undertaken a number of exciting projects for some high profile individuals and celebrities.”
