A blank canvas might be exciting for architects and interior designers, but most house buyers want to see a furnished property to visualise how their daily life might look in a new home – and to gain valuable inspiration. So, would-be buyers will be glad to know that a new view home, by Andrew Henry Interiors, is now available to view at David Wilson Homes’ Cane Hill Park in Coulsdon.

The Hogarth is a four-bedroom family home with a modern façade, overlooking a central, landscaped green. There’s a large open-plan kitchen, separate study and a cosy first-floor lounge with a balcony. “At the Hogarth, we’ve concentrated on bringing the outside in,” says designer Andrew Henry. “We’ve used a natural colour palette with pale wood, botanical prints and accents of forest and fern green to link the house back to its parkland setting. Feature lighting and interesting textures have combined to create a home that’s both glamorous and comfortable.”

Designed with family life in mind, the bedrooms reflect different characters in the household. There’s a cowboy-themed bedroom for a younger boy, complete with cactus print wallpaper, and bedroom for a bohemian teenager with feature lighting, cushions and a dreamcatcher creating a cosy atmosphere. Meanwhile the second-floor principal bedroom suite has a more glamorous feel to create a ‘haven’ for busy parents.

Occupying the site of the former Cane Hill Hospital, at Cane Hill Park a diverse selection of new homes is being built; with three to five-bedroom family houses currently available. The new homes respect the historical value of the site and display a stylish, modern aesthetic.

The thriving suburb of Coulsdon offers great local amenities, there’s a Waitrose, good schools, and plenty of green space including Farthing Downs, a 235-acre chalk grassland crossed by footpaths and bridleways.

Nearby Croydon, about eight minutes by train, is undergoing large-scale regeneration. Already a major shopping destination, the Mayor of London approved plans for a £1.4billion Westfield shopping centre in Croydon earlier this year. In addition, when it reopens later this year, the redevelopment of Fairfield Halls will create a new cultural centre for the area.

Handy for commuters, Coulsdon South station is within half a mile of the development, with direct services to London Victoria (from 26 minutes), Gatwick (from 22 minutes) and Brighton (from 58 minutes). By car, the A23 will link you with Central London and the motorway network.

Prices for the current phase of four and five-bedroom properties from David Wilson Homes start at £594,995. Help to Buy London and Part Exchange are available on selected plots. For further information, or to book an appointment to view the show home, visit
