A truly luxurious five bedroom detached showhome has been revealed at Taylor Wimpey West Scotland’s first development of new homes in the exclusive village of Ferniegair on the outskirts of Hamilton in South Lanarkshire.

Inspired by the local connection between the Duke of Hamilton and nearby Chatelherault Country Park, Taylor Wimpey’s The Dukes development, situated off Carlisle Road offers just 33 executive four and five bedroom homes in eight bespoke designs, exclusively available at Ferniegair.

The impressive five bedroom detached Forth house style offers an exclusive glimpse into just how spacious and luxurious living at The Dukes can be. Boasting celebratory champagne shades in the master bedroom, to bold and bright contrasts of purple and yellow in the spacious kitchen/dining and informal family area – this home stands out from the crowd.

The large open hall and galleried landing gives visitors an instant flavour of just how spacious this home is – natural creams and textures create a warm welcome! And the downstairs study offers a calming sanctuary to work from home, or catch-up on some study time. The beautifully-appointed living room at the rear of the home offers French doors to the back garden to enjoy the best of the Scottish summer.

Next door there’s plenty of space to chill, relax and entertain in the most impressive kitchen with adjoining family living area and informal dining space that will ensure this is the hub of this home. With a dramatic palette of yellow and purple contrasting with the cool white of the kitchen –this is a sophisticated yet relaxed place to catch up with the family at any time of day. French doors also give access to the rear garden. A handy utility room takes care of life’s laundry and boasts a side door that conveniently leads to the front and rear gardens.

Enjoying a great position at the front of the house, the dining room is a great space for dinner parties and family occasions, plus a handy downstairs WC adds to the practical features of this house.

Upstairs each of the five bedrooms flow from the galleried hall landing, with both the impressive master bedroom in its delicate shades and textures of oyster, and bedroom two with its calming neutrals palette each offering a good-sized en-suite. There’s also plenty of storage with double fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom, plus a triple set of wardrobes in bedroom two. Bedroom three enjoys a dramatic purple feature wall with accents of vibrant pink that’s sure to appeal to the young adults in the family – and with a further double set of fitted wardrobes there’s no excuse for untidiness.

With younger members of the family in mind, bedroom four is girl heaven with splashes of vibrant pinks and groovy designs to create a real play sanctuary. Next door the cool mix of grey and silver create a great hang-out that offers enough space to chill or do homework – the choice is theirs!

The development is supported by a good local transport infrastructure. The M8 and M74 offer convenient routes into the heart of the city centre or around the rest of the region. The local train station at Chatelherault offers a regular service (via Hamilton) into Glasgow’s Central station – a regional hub for services to the rest of Scotland and beyond. Plus a good bus network offers a great way to get round the local area.

Taylor Wimpey is keen to help buyers get on the move to The Dukes as Linda Smith, sales manager for Taylor Wimpey West Scotland adds: “Ferniegair is a prestigious and sought-after location that boasts the convenience of neighbouring Hamilton, and its great mix of primary, secondary and further education, as well as local amenities which are all-important for families. The launch of our new showhome has created a real buzz locally, and we’re already seeing customers making the decision to purchase here.

“And there’s never been a better time to buy with Taylor Wimpey working hard to deliver a range of offers that do make a real difference to customers.

“Customers who reserve at the moment can take advantage of our Easymover Plus scheme - giving buyers the security and peace of mind to be able to make the decision to move to a new home now.

“Plus, we can also give buyers access to free, independent financial advice. And of course the benefit of our expertise in the property market, to help alleviate the normal stress and worry associated with moving home, as we work with buyers to make their dream move to our new developments like The Dukes in Ferniegair a reality.
