Award-winning heritage developer City & Country has recently launched the first of its luxurious new show homes at its Manningtree Park development in Manningtree, Essex.

Offering a fantastic introduction to the exceptional range of versatile and sophisticated new builds individually designed by City & Country, The Danbury show home is a spacious five-bedroom home, measuring at 2,985 sq ft with a focus on flexible living. Crafted as a forever home, the stylish home shows off how this excellent property can be adapted to reflect the changing lifestyles of its owners.

Jennifer Rhodes-Finch, Head of Marketing at City & Country comments: “The Danbury is quite simply a fabulous home, designed to offer flexibility and comfort to buyers over their lifetime. We understand that homeowners’ lifestyles and needs change over time and so this is a wonderfully versatile home which offers plenty of space and of course an impeccable finish.”

“The launch of this beautiful show home is an exciting opportunity for potential buyers to find out what life looks like at Manningtree Park. Visitors may already know they can combine a wonderful country and coastal lifestyle with an easy commute to the Capital, but with the opening of the Danbury show home they can truly appreciate the exceptional standard of our beautiful new homes and the quality of life on offer here.”

Situated at the heart of the show home is a spacious, sociable kitchen/dining/family room with large sliding doors seamlessly bringing the outdoors inside and flooding the space with natural light. Crafted to appeal to a variety of homebuyers, the superior design includes impressive stand-out features including a unique walk-in pantry, with its kitchen specification complete with premium Silestone worktops, sun-bleached oak flooring and integrated appliances including a wine cooler.

The perfect haven to relax or entertain guests, the separate living room boasts an open fireplace with a reading corner created in the show home, whilst a further reception room can be styled in a variety of ways to fit buyers’ needs – whether as a formal dining room seating up to 10 guests, a snug, children’s playroom or study.

The impressive principal bedroom provides a restful sanctuary featuring a stylish botanical print on throws and cushions, with fitted wardrobes, wool carpets and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with Vado brassware, Laufen Pro sanitary ware and textured porcelain tiles.

As well as a second en-suite bedroom, three generous further bedrooms and a family bathroom, The Danbury provides the unique opportunity to convert additional loft space, accessible from another staircase, into further accommodation or living space to suit a variety of lifestyles. To demonstrate the versatility of this impressive property, the space in the show home has been configured as a relaxing common area with both a homework station and an area for teenagers and older children to unwind, showing how the space can be adapted by families as children grow older.

Georgina Tarn, Interior Designer Manager at City & Country commented: “As in-house specialists we get involved in the design of each individual home from the very beginning – even before planning permission was approved at Manningtree Park we started to craft an idea of what homes at this location would look and feel like.

“We wanted to create a warm and inviting home that would offer flexibility and comfort whilst reflecting the house’s superior specification, utilising a green and neutral colour palette to complement its tranquil countryside location. The multi-functional layout of the home allowed us to create a truly adaptable and contemporary living space that caters to a variety of lifestyles.

Designed with energy efficiency in mind, the homes incorporate efficient combination boilers as well as measures to reduce energy and water usage, helping to keep energy bills low. With a Predicted Energy Assessment (PEA) rating of B, the homes also include a provision for electric car charging points, and high levels of insulation.
