Finding a spacious family abode with a touch of urban cool is a rarity, but house hunters looking for a city oasis with room for their families to grow should be sure to head to CALA Homes’ latest show home in Bridge of Don, Aberdeen.
The three-bedroom semi-detached Beaufort, newly launched at CALA’s landmark Grandhome development, blends city style and family comfort effortlessly, creating a show piece home that prospective buyers are sure to fall in love with.
Set within the urban haven that is Grandhome, a brand new cornerstone community set to include new schools, health centre, parks, recreational areas, retail space and community facilities, the impressive show home gives viewers the opportunity to really see the CALA lifestyle in action.
Styled by Eileen Kesson of Envision interior design, The Beaufort stays true to CALA’s renowned reputation for quality and luxury, whilst taking a new, edgy direction to complement the home’s surroundings.
The Beaufort home style benefits from plenty of room to breathe, with ample living and storage space throughout. An air of sophisticated, apartment-style living has been created, with a sharp and bold colour palette toning into the ‘new neutral’ of a dark grey and pale parchment canvas throughout.
A large, open hallway gives way to the lounge, which boasts a stunning linear fireplace in minimalist design with a polished granite ledge, offering a stylish and welcoming focal point. A large suede corner sofa has its own reading area accented by a smart black corner pairing of two flexible pendant lights, and a distinctive modern armchair trimmed with dark leather banding adds a distinct edge to the room. Full but simple cracked velvet drapes dress the expansive windows and bold abstract patterns feature in the cushions and artwork to add a powerful counterpoint to the low key palette.
Continuing through the property, the spacious kitchen and dining area, with French doors to the rear gardens, catches the eye immediately with specialist amtico flooring in a mix of charcoal and copper, and a spectacular glass cluster pendant in grey and leaf glass above the dining table. The sleek kitchen combo of white gloss and matt anthracite is offset with a striking white and deep grey stone worktop, plus a specially designed floating media unit to the dining wall, to complete this urban hideaway.
The downstairs quarters also benefit from a study, entrance vestibule, cloakroom and two large storage cupboards.
Upstairs, the master bedroom continues the metropolitan theme, with softer touches to add a cosy vibe. Matt paper to the master bed wall cleverly imitates a wool fabric in charcoal and cream, offsetting the stunning feather-trimmed linen headboard and faux fur spreads. Oval hammered bronze side tables flank the bed and the room is beautifully finished with two stunning Italian ‘liquorice’ metal scribble pendant lights, resembling sculptures rather than lighting.
A spacious en suite benefits from both a bath and separate shower, and a family bathroom, three further storage cupboards and two additional bedrooms – both with fitted wardrobes – complete the living space upstairs.
Fraser Carr, sales and marketing director for CALA Homes (North), said: “The Beaufort show home at Grandhome is different to anything we’ve created before in Aberdeen. It retains elements of classic CALA design and quality, but with a much bolder, on trend edge that really reflects the development itself.
“Those seeking a sleek and smart home, without compromising on room to breathe, will love the design and flair of this remarkable home. It really is an urban oasis of both style and comfort.”
The show home is part of CALA at Grandhome, the first phase of which will include a collection of 71 terraced and semi-detached homes, as well as apartments. Prices are currently from £278,000.
