St. Modwen Homes has unveiled its first Showhomes at Meon Vale in Long Marston and, thanks to the metallic hues used throughout, they’ve certainly dazzled local homebuyers.

Located just six miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, the Garnet four bedroom Showhome and Chad three bedroom Showhome, opened to the public last weekend, giving people their first opportunity to explore the award-winning housebuilder’s new homes.

Internally finished with rose gold and copper, alongside pink and grey hues, the Chad is the perfect home for first time buyers and couples wanting to start a family. Dressed by Midlands based interior designer. Killer 5, contemporary lighting is used to differentiate the living and dining areas in the open plan room, whereas chandeliers are used in the master bedroom to add a touch of luxury (in keeping with the walk in dressing room and en suite that come as standard).

Continuing the metallic theme, the Garnet uses sliver and mirrored surfaces to create elegance in the living room, whilst the family – or snug – room has a cosier appearance with tartan used alongside fur, and a unique feature wall created with wallpaper showing open books. This literary theme continues upstairs, with Vogue magazine covers used on a feature wall in the second bedroom.

Both homes have been designed with St. Modwen Homes’ philosophy of light and height, meaning each room has higher than average ceilings and large windows.

Bev Hall, Sales and Marketing Director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “It’s always an exciting time to open the doors to the first Showhomes at a development as it represents a key milestone within the construction programme. The initial response has been fantastic, with many people commenting on the open and bright living spaces, as well as wanting to copy the interior design in their own homes.

“Since launching the new homes at Meon Vale in April, we’ve seen a lot of interest from people already living in the local area; particularly amongst those who want to be able to travel to Stratford-upon-Avon easily whilst also wanting more of a rural setting for their new home.” 

Part of a new village being developed at Meon Vale, the new homes benefit from their close proximity to the Meon Vale Leisure Centre, a convenience store and children’s play area that have already been delivered. St. Modwen has also completed a one mile extension of The Greenway, Stratford’s popular cycle route and footpath, providing easy – and scenic – assess to the historic town centre.

There is currently a range of three and four bedroom houses for sale at Meon Vale, with prices starting from £229,995.

St. Modwen Homes is the housebuilding brand of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist.

The Showhomes are open five days a week, from 10am to 5.30pm, Thursday to Monday, inclusive of the weekends, and are located off Campden Road in Long Marston (CV37 8QR).
