Caerphilly’s scrum-ptious new show home

Caerphilly’s scrum-ptious new show home Homehunters in the Caerphilly area can picture themselves living in luxury fit for a rugby captain at the launch of a new show home next weekend. Redrow has teamed sporty style with a touch of ‘wag’ elegance at its Cwm Calon development, in Ystrad Mynach, by decorating and furnishing the brand new show home to suit the lifestyle of Penallta captain Matt Tucker.

Member of the Penallta Rugby Club will be at Cwm Calon next Saturday and Sunday (Jan 19 & 20) as Redrow officially open the doors of the new five-bedroom ‘Webburn’ home to the public.

Matt’s team are also known as ‘The Pitmen’, as the men who originally formed the club all worked at Penallta Colliery, part of which is now being redeveloped to create Cwm Calon. And Redrow recently donated £4,000 to help develop the club and buy new first team kit.

The house builder’s chosen interior design company, Connections in Design, interviewed the rugby player to find out his tastes and hobbies so they could create an interior that would be perfectly suited to his lifestyle.

Matt chose a modern colour-scheme and contemporary furniture to complement the high-specification fixtures and fittings from Redrow’s ‘Indulge’ range. Other than that, the finished article will be as much a surprise to Matt as it is to potential home owners who take a peek this weekend.

Debby Pavitt, sales manager for Redrow Homes (South Wales), said: “The designers have come up with a stylish and contemporary scheme to suit Matt’s sporty lifestyle but the show home is really there to show potential buyers that, whatever their taste, a brand new property is a blank canvass that can be transformed into a dream home.

“Parents are welcome to bring their children along this weekend and we will have a host of family-friendly entertainment to keep them busy while mum and dad look around the show home.

“Cwm Calon is a superb development for families and great for the area as a whole. It’s a lovely place to live and it’s got great transport and rail links.”

Set in the village of Ystrad Mynach, Cwm Calon has stunning views of the surrounding countryside and its affordability makes it a great choice for people looking for a beautiful and easy to manage new property.

The immediate amenities of Ystrad Mynach and the town of Caerphilly are close by, while for commuters Cardiff is just a 14 mile journey south by car or 20 minutes by train from the nearby railway station.

One and two-bedroom apartments are available from just £99,950, three-bedroom houses from £179,995, four-bedroom from £194,995 and a five-bedroom homes from £319,995.
