Regal living in Milngavie in Douglas Gardens’ new showhome


Mactaggart & Mickel Homes has unlocked the doors to a stylish new showhome at its exclusive Douglas Gardens development in Milngavie.

With just 20 four and five-bedroom detached homes neatly cradled in pretty woodland, Douglas Gardens is private, exclusive and offers luxurious living with its range of chic villas. The recently opened majestic five-bedroom Kerrera showhome allows visitors to visualise what life could be like at this opulent development.

Upon entering, visitors are greeted by a showstopping feature staircase which perfectly represents the grand scale of this stunning home. Walking through to the kitchen, its shades of cream with dark wood accents and top end features, radiates style and glamour. With a built-in breakfast bar, glossy canary splashboard and plenty of worktop and cupboard space, this area will compliment any cooking enthusiast.

The kitchen leads through to the dramatic dining room. The focal point, a mahogany dining table with stylish dark grey chairs is set for six. A large vivid print by renowned Scottish artist, Gerard Burns, hangs on a statement chartreuse wall completing the space.

Moving through double sliding doors into the vast lounge, the same palette of warm café au lait tones with vibrant flashes of yellow creates the perfect environment for formal entertaining. Stone sofas are accessorised with plump cushions and lacquered rosewood furniture is neatly topped with statement lamps adding sparkle to the room. Taupe curtains frame the bay window.

The smaller study/family room showcases a relaxing colour scheme as cushions in dove grey, maple and amber lay on ash sofas. This palette continues through to the conservatory, with its large windows and tiled floor the space is flooded with light making it perfect for informal entertaining.

Walking up the sweeping staircase, another of Gerard Burns’ signature prints is prominently featured. The master bedroom exudes opulence with extravagant textured fabrics and elegant upholstery. A delicate duck egg blue wall is the backdrop to the luxurious bed topped with a welcoming array of lush cream and azure cushions.

A private dressing room, with enviable storage, leads through to the lavish en-suite which will fulfil all pampering needs. Decorated with neutral mosaic tiles, it has a bath, shower and his & hers sinks creating a paradise retreat.

Charcoal grey and purple tones delight in the second bedroom and create a modern feel. Beech fitted wardrobes with cream panels offer ample storage. The room also has generous en-suite shower room in relaxing neutral tones.

A pink paradise is the perfect way to describe the third bedroom. Decorated in a stunning shade of cotton candy pink with white furniture it is fit for a princess.

The fourth bedroom, decorated in cream and grey with hints of blue and red, is a great space for little boys. Turned into a sophisticated study, the fifth bedroom is decorated with striking black gloss furniture against charcoal walls.

A family bathroom tiled in warm marble with a separate bath and shower complete this stunning home.

The development is also close to a bustling town centre. Equipped with a Marks & Spencer and new Waitrose store which is due to open its doors to customers in spring 2015, good shopping is available for everyday and specialist needs.
