The epitome of luxury living

Westpoint Homes unveils luxury living on another level in Balfron

Westpoint Homes has unveiled a magnificent new three-storey show home as part of their final phase at the prestigious Donaldson Wynd development in Balfron, Stirlingshire where only 3 homes remain for sale.

The spectacular new show home is the fourth to be opened in this exclusive development, with the previous three properties being quickly snapped up by savvy buyers who simply had to have them.

Tucked away in an established pocket of the conservation village, this development, comprising impressive five and six-bedroom homes, strikes the ideal balance between country living and city accessibility – making Donaldson Wynd an irresistible choice for discerning home buyers who want the best of both worlds.

The new Ben Nevis show home nestles on a spacious plot which promotes a sense of arrival and good privacy, as well as providing for an open outlook to the rear with the rolling countryside beyond.   The homes’ grand, traditional façade hints at the impressive scale within which typifies the standard of new homes available at this exclusive address.

On entering the show home, visitors will be instantly attracted to the bright and airy hall which features a striking oak staircase – giving the home that all-important “wow” factor on entry.

The interior design throughout, coordinated by Eileen Kesson of Envision, is a reflection of the development’s ethos – blending natural, earthy tones with contemporary splashes of colour, with the emphasis very much on bringing a sense of the great outdoors into the heart of the home.

The light, neutral palette throughout the show home simply accentuates the superb space standards within this luxury, well-appointed home with the summer-bright splashes of colour on feature walls and soft furnishings adding vibrancy and visual interest throughout.

The ground floor of the property boasts a large living area with picture postcard views onto the extensive rear gardens which can be accessed via slide-a-side patio doors. The living room is decorated in rich, creamy tones with dramatic touches of black and lime adding a chic twist. Leaf-motif soft furnishings, wicker chairs and dark wood accents reflect the property’s unique semi-rural location. The living room features a cosy study recess which is the perfect spot for a work station, library and other home office essentials.

Also featured on the ground floor is the extensive kitchen area which includes a breakfasting area and family room. This luxury sized space is sure to be the hub of the home with direct access to the garden offered once again via slide-a-side patio doors – an excellent example of how the home connects to the well stocked gardens beyond. The room has been decorated to compliment the gold almond and royal oak tones of the kitchen cabinetry, with a soft, yellow feature wall creating the perfect back drop for a ‘modern country’ family dining area.

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

Upstairs, the show home continues to evoke an authentic sense of grandeur. The sweeping oak staircase leads to a notably large reception hall where four of the bedrooms are situated, along with a second living area and family bathroom directly above the double garage. The family room on this floor is a fresh, contemporary space which could be the perfect kids’ den when mum and dad are entertaining in the formal lounge below.  The bold, striking wallpaper adds contrast to the clean white walls giving the room a modern chic feel.

Bedroom two of the property is decorated with bright colour accents of fuchsia pink and jewel purple ensuring the eye-catching style of this home is consistent throughout. The bedroom comes complete with an en-suite and more than ample built-in wardrobe space. A further three double bedrooms, some of which enjoy extraordinary views, all come complete with fitted wardrobes.  A large four-piece family bathroom with Porcelanosa wall tiling and Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware, and a super-sized walk-in storage cupboard completes the upstairs accommodation.

The main event in this property is found on the 2nd floor however, or the third level where the entire floor area has been dedicated to a bedroom and en-suite of unrivalled proportion.    Serene, private, exorbitantly spacious with superb attention to detail, this room will be a real winner with those discerning buyers looking for that little bit of added luxury.  The space and style of the room, equipped with king-size bed, sofa, coffee table, and bedside cabinetry, not to mention two banks of fitted wardrobes will immediately impress visitors looking for a home with a cutting-edge, something that little bit different from the norm!  This huge open plan space with dressing area also has a five-piece master en-suite which includes a ‘his & hers’ sink.

Those who do visit the Ben Nevis show home will get a real feel for the myriad of lifestyle possibilities made possible by a Westpoint Homes home at Donaldson Wynd.

While capturing the sense of rural village life, Donaldson Wynd is ideal for busy families who want the best of both worlds. The development is equidistant to Glasgow and Stirling, but has great schooling literally on the doorstep.  It’s the ideal place to begin your day or end your week!  The sort of place where next weekend cannot come quickly enough!

The Ben Nevis show home also gives visitors 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 fixtures and fittings are assured in each home.

Prices start from £470,000 for the Ben Nevis and Ben More property styles. There are now only 3 homes available.

The sales office is open from 11am to 5:30pm Thursday to Monday and the sales team can be contacted on 01360 449552.
