Show Home Opens In Lower Darwen

Posted 27 December 2023 by Keith Osborne

The doors to the four-bedroom ‘Bunbury’ have been opened to house-hunters by Elan Homes...

House-hunters in Lancashire can now be inspired by the professionally designed and decorated show house at Elan Homes’ Tower Gardens development in Lower Darwen.

The scheme will eventually comprise 76 energy-efficient EPC B-rated homes and to assist property-seekers who want a close look at what’s coming, the four-bedroom detached ‘Bunbury’ house type showcases the specification, quality and finish they can expect.

Marie Morris, sales director for Elan Homes in the North, said: “With the help of Stanza Style we’ve dressed the show home in Lower Darwen in rich tones of ochre, rustic red and warm neutrals, to create the impression of a cosy family home visitors can imagine themselves living in. We’ve had some fantastic feedback. There’s a child’s bedroom styled as a reading den, with a black framed bed in the shape of a house, with typewriter print effect wallpaper on one wall and books hanging from the ceiling is a particular favourite. It’s captured the imagination of parents and children alike.”

The ‘Bunbury’ is a generously proportioned, double-fronted property, offering 1,298 sq ft of living space. It features a lounge that spans from the front to the rear, with a window at the front and French doors at the opposite end, offering lots of natural light.

The lounge features a linen textured wallpaper in rustic red to one wall, with coordinating curtains, complemented by cushions in similar tones with ochre accents. On the opposite side of the hallway to the lounge is a combined kitchen, dining and family room, with French doors opening out onto the garden and a window by the sink.In the kitchen/ diner there’s a geometric textured wallpaper with a grasscloth effect, with the other walls in this part of the home painted in antique cream.

Tower Gardens show homeUpstairs, there are four bedrooms, including the main bedroom with en-suite to complement the family bathroom.

Alex Egan, from Stanza Style, said: “Floral and biophilic patterns are a continuing trend in interiors and we’ve embraced this in styling the Elan show home in Lower Darwen. For example, in the lounge we’ve added black metal flower effect wall art. Even the cloakroom has been given the style treatment, with feature wallpaper inspired by the foliage of a tropical tree.

“We’ve used a 1930s-style floral design wallpaper in the main bedroom, while in bedrooms two and three we’ve opted for geometric print wallpaper, including one with a portrait pattern.”

Elan has a choice of three- and four-bedroom homes in Lower Darwen available. Current prices are from £239,995 and there’s a Deposit Boost offer on selected plots and to help existing homeowners climb the housing ladder, Elan will also consider Part Exchange.

The development is close to Lower Darwen Primary School, meaning it could be ideal for families. There’s a choice of supermarkets within a 10-minute drive while Darwen town centre is home to a mix of independent businesses plus a thriving market, while the market square hosts a variety of events.
