Two Show Homes Launched At Edinburgh

Posted 4 July 2022 by Keith Osborne

Cala Homes recently opened the doors to two new contemporary-design show homes at Cammo Meadows...

Award-winning Cala Homes (East) has launched two brand new ‘Capital’ show homes, designed by BLOCC interiors, within their perfectly situated Edinburgh development Cammo Meadows.

With 23 acres of greenery on the development itself, and with connections to the nearby 80 acre Cammo Estate, homebuyers with Cala at Cammo Meadows can discover various styles of apartments and houses with excellent transport links to the city centre.

The ‘Capital Homes’ in particular offer a real contemporary twist on a classic Edinburgh architectural style which was originally introduced in the 19th century. With outlooks to the green estate, two newly launched show homes showcase both styles available at Cammo Meadows; namely the ‘Capital Garden Home’ which can be found on the ground floor, and the ‘Capital Duplex Home’ which spans two floors above. Both are best seen to really discover what makes them so special.

After ascending the external staircase of the ‘Duplex’ to access a spacious porch and main door front door, you enter the property on the first level, which boasts two double bedrooms and a flexible third room – currently dressed as a study to fully embrace those working from home. The living and kitchen area, and connecting external terrace, takes the highest position within the Duplex on the upper level, giving this impressive social space views across the green space development, with the bedrooms located on the more private lower floor.

Inspired by the trends predicted for 2023, the interior has been designed using white ivory and taupe with greys and beiges emphasising the warm, earthy tones such as mustard and burnt orange which have been added to create further depth. The upper level in particular is set to wow – it opens out into a showcase open-plan lounge and kitchen with connecting terrace, which is cleverly zoned into living and dining areas by the dark grey and angular corner sofa.

Cammo MeadowsThe three-bedroom ‘Capital Garden’ show home – a ground floor three-bedroom home with private garden – has been designed with downsizers and families in mind, along with buyers who prefer one-level living with easy access to the great outdoors. Inspired by rich tones, it presents warm taupe and plush beiges accented by emerald, gold, and black throughout, with a statement silk-effect emerald and gold palm tree wallpaper drawing your eye from room to room. A large hallway offers further flexibility and creates the option for another work from home area, relaxation spot or additional storage. Full-length windows and curtains highlight the space and boutique-look, while perfectly framing the greenery and landscape that surrounds the home.

Suzanne Thomas, creative sales director at BLOCC Interiors, said: “Emphasising the natural surroundings of this development and highlighting the sheer volume of greenery and open spaces were key to the interior design of the ‘Capital’ show homes. Also, the predicted trends for 2023 such as colour blocking and pairing crisp, neutral colours with warm, earthy tones such as mustard and burnt orange, has been crucial in highlighting the light and space available within these ‘best of both worlds’ properties.”

Phillip Hogg, sales and marketing director for Cala Homes (East), said: “Cammo Meadows is a fantastic development, with great links to the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and the incredible Cammo Estate on your doorstep, which is ideal for dog owners, families and those who love to experience the great outdoors by bike or foot.

“The launch of the ‘Capital’ show homes is an exciting phase in this community, and we are thrilled to be able to showcase our modern interpretation of these traditional Edinburgh-style homes, each of which has its own outdoor space, which is a sought-after commodity – especially since the pandemic.

The show homes are available to view by appointment. Find out more at www.cala.co.uk.
