A closer look at our Sales Manager’s favourite Kirkwood home... ‘The Marr’

With so many outstanding housetypes to choose from across our developments, our Sales Manager, Shirley Craig, has chosen ‘The Marr’ as her dream Kirkwood home.

She says; “Whilst we are in the enviable position of offering a plethora of stylish 3, 4 and 5 bedroom luxury homes, I’d have to say ‘The Marr’ is ultimately my favourite housetype. This is a superb example of a family home, thoughtfully designed to fully maximize the internal space, and with modern living firmly in mind.” 

In this blog post we’ve caught up with Shirley, who describes the internal layout of ‘The Marr’ in detail and the key features within this outstanding 4 bedroom home, with an exciting offer you don't want to miss out on at the end of this blog post...

 

Outstanding social areas

"As soon as you step through the door of ‘The Marr’, the feeling of space is immediately obvious, with the fabulous family area in full view from the generous hallway",  Shirley says.

“The bright and extensive open-plan kitchen, dining and family area is my favourite feature in this beautiful home, and offers that all important ‘wow’ factor. With an abundance of space for informal seating and plenty of room to add a sizable dining table, this is the room that our clients adore the most.

“As with all our homes, there’s an excellent stylish German kitchen hosting a range of high-spec appliances. ‘The Marr’ incorporates a stylish breakfast bar, ideal for casual dining, and perfect for keeping the kitchen and family area connected. There’s also a useful ‘nook’ within this room, offering a clever and thoughtful space for a work-station - perfect for those who work from home, or for children to use on returning from school. The french doors in this room keep the area bright and airy and make for a striking feature, while also allowing access onto the patio and private rear garden. 

“Although the family room will, no doubt, be utilised for day to day living, there’s also a generous, separate formal lounge within this home - providing a further space for the family to relax in and enjoy.”

 

Deluxe bedrooms

Upstairs, off the generous landing area,‘The Marr’ hosts four spacious double bedrooms, each with built in wardrobes to accommodate individual storage.

Shirley says; “The considerable proportions of these rooms mean they are completely future-proof for growing children, or perfect as luxurious guest bedrooms. Both the master bedroom and second bedroom feature outstanding en suites, each beautifully appointed with high specification sanitaryware and Spanish tiling, with the master ensuite hosting a particularly large shower enclosure.”

 

Luxurious family bathroom

A well-appointed bathroom is an essential part of every family home, but Shirley describes ‘The Marr’ family bathroom as a room that emanates luxury, as well as practicality: 

“The spacious and sumptuous bathroom in ‘The Marr’ enjoys wonderful natural light to make this room bright and inviting. There’s a separate shower enclosure, therefore a total of three showers can be found upstairs to service the four bedrooms. I particularly love the striking centralised built-in bath beneath the window in this room - and with LED lighting, Spanish tiling and high-end sanitaryware to enjoy, this beautiful bathroom offers a peaceful retreat from day to day stresses.” 



Practical storage solutions

Not only does the abundance of space in ‘The Marr’ offer outstanding social areas for relaxing with family and guests, it also hosts an exceptional amount of storage space throughout the entire home, with practical solutions for a busy household. 

Shirley says; “Underneath the beautiful winding staircase you will find a double cupboard, suitable for storing outerwear and large enough to also keep appliances hidden from view, whilst a practical linen cupboard can be located on the first floor.

“Just off the kitchen area, there’s a well proportioned utility room offering an essential space for laundry appliances. This area also contains a WC and direct access to the rear garden, as well as a substantial walk-in storage cupboard, perfect for keeping toys and sports equipment out of sight - certainly beneficial for families with children. Some of my previous clients have utilised this cupboard as a pantry, so this can also be a functional space for the baker or aspiring masterchef in the household!”

 

 

“‘The Marr’ also boasts a large integral double garage which is conveniently accessed by a door from the utility room - and ideal for storing bikes and equipment. The garage walls are lined and painted, offering versatility to convert this area into a further living or work space in the future, if required, with lighting and power already installed. You will also find a useful tap within the garage, a practical addition for washing the family car on the driveway.” Shirley adds.

“Over the years, as with many of our homes, ‘The Marr’ has expanded and enjoyed subtle changes internally. This is a testament to how our experienced architects constantly strive to accommodate our clients’ ever-changing needs. I believe our current version of ‘The Marr’ makes for a simply stunning example of an executive home, and why it is incredibly popular throughout our developments... it’s definitely my dream home!”
