The best of both worlds in Balfron

It’s the ultimate dilemma for families searching for that dream home; a house in an idyllic rural setting or an ultra-convenient “city-on-the-doorstep” position?

At Donaldson Wynd in Balfron, Westpoint Homes feels that it is offering the perfect solution for those discerning homebuyers looking to tick every box.

And with a spectacular show home now open and a part exchange incentive available on selected properties, Donaldson Wynd is more appealing than ever.

This impressive address strikes the ideal balance between country living and city accessibility. Located in a picturesque conservation village, the neighbourhood is within easy reach of both Glasgow and Stirling, making it an irresistible choice for families seeking out a spectacular home in a beautiful setting.

The Ben Lui show home at Donaldson Wynd is a sparkling showcase for this prestigious development of 11 bespoke five-bedroom homes.

With a striking, traditional façade the show home instantly evokes a sense of grandeur sitting proudly on a comfortable plot with a larger than average back garden.  The outstanding point of difference however is the ultra-spacious interiors.  The Ben Lui extends to an impressive 2200 sq ft and is the smallest of the six bespoke house types featured.

The interior design throughout the home, by Eileen Kesson of Envision, is a reflection of the development’s ethos – blending natural, earthy tones and motifs with stylish, contemporary themes.

The ground floor boasts a very large living room with views onto the extensive rear garden through French doors. The living room is decorated in rich, creamy tones with dramatic touches of black and lime adding a chic twist. Hints of the outdoors are brought inside with leaf-motif soft furnishings and dark wood accents. The living room also features a cosy study recess which is the perfect spot for a work station, library and other home office essentials; ideal for making sure the kids’ homework is being done as you unwind after a hectic day.

Another highlight of the ground floor is the extensive kitchen area which incorporates a breakfast and family zone; sure to be the hub of the home. As with the lounge, the kitchen has direct access to the landscaped lawn area via feature French doors. There are also two patio areas ideal for barbecuing.

The ground floor is completed by a separate dining room, WC and utility room enjoying access to the integral double garage.

Upstairs, the show home continues to impress. The showpiece of this floor is the master bedroom which comes complete with a five-piece en suite and more than ample built-in wardrobe provision. It is the little twists like ‘his and hers’ wash hand basins that take this home to a level unsurpassed by other mainstream home builders.

The second bedroom is decorated in neutral tones with nature-inspired green, wicker and floral highlights. It too has an en suite with walk-in shower. A further three double bedrooms all complete with fitted wardrobes, and a large fitted four-piece family bathroom and walk in storage cupboard completes the Ben-Lui’s impressive schedule of accommodation.

The Ben Lui show home gives intending purchasers a taste of the outstanding specifications that come as standard at Donaldson Wynd.  The various house styles are markedly different but the same high level of finish is assured in each home with the full range of integrated kitchen appliances, sanitaryware by Villeroy & Boch, and Porcelanosa kitchens and tiling  particularly noteworthy.

Donaldson Wynd only features 11 homes in total with 6 distinct house styles.  Architecturally, every home is unique with contrasting roof tiles and external facades. Homebuyers are also actively encouraged to put their individual signature on their home’s design.  With exceptional space standards and bespoke design meaning every home is truly “one of a kind”, it is easy to see why sales have been strong.

It is also worth highlighting that many homes also boast exceptional views, especially the two house styles on plot 4 and 6 (Ben Avon & Ben Alder).  All of the above comes together to create the “picture perfect” setting to make yourself at home at Donaldson Wynd for as long as you wish, with space to grow and adapt.
