Hayfield has unveiled a highly aspirational three-bedroom Hatton show home at its largest development – Hayfield Place in the Bedfordshire village of Silsoe. The London townhouse inspired interiors have been designed to illustrate how luxurious, bespoke-made pieces can make a new home as Pinterest-worthy as a boutique hotel.
The interior is the brainchild of Gemma Schofield, Director of Lifestyle Interiors. She comments: “The Hatton provides beautiful internal space and an integral garage. The kitchen/diner incorporates well thought-out features such as ceiling-high cupboards for a sleek look and additional storage, as well as a centre island for food preparation, which doubles up as a breakfast bar. Sumptuous blue velvet chairs and statement lighting create a stunning and inviting setting to enjoy every mealtime.
“The living room is the perfect place to entertain, with double doors leading out onto the enclosed garden. The styling has been inspired by a laid-back members’ lounge with lots of texture, art deco inspired furniture and shades of grey, taupe and smoky navy.
“The upstairs of the Hatton has a natural wow factor, with three large bedrooms and hotel-style bathrooms. The first bedroom features a superking bed with bespoke wall panelling, complemented by taupe, grey and white fabrics and furniture. A similar colour palette is used in bedroom two, where a beautiful oversized headboard takes centre stage. To show how versatile bedroom three could be, we have dressed two single beds with feminine pastel shades, but also included a large dresser, which could be alternated for a home office set up.
“This is the most luxurious three-bedroom show home I have seen and I’m so proud we’ve had the opportunity to illustrate how strong styling, bespoke furniture and a highly sophisticated colour palette can be used in smaller family homes.”
The 14-acre Hayfield Place scheme is located off Silsoe High Street, close to English Heritage’s magnificent Grade I listed Wrest Park. Featuring 105 exceptional two, three, four and five-bedroom bungalows and family homes, the prices for the current release start from £465,000.
Hayfield Place has been designed to reflect architectural styles from the sought-after historic village of Silsoe, weaving in local materials and detailing. The new homes are being constructed in red and buff brick and render with a luxurious specification that is unmatched in the area. Specification features vary dependent on the house design, including underfloor heating, designer Laufen bathrooms, Minoli ceramic tiles, Hammonds fitted wardrobes, Farrow & Ball paint, heritage bronze door furniture and bi-fold doors. The bespoke kitchens designed by Manor Interiors include a range of integrated Bosch appliances, such as multifunctional ovens, an induction hob, dishwasher and an instant hot tap.
Hayfield’s homes are significantly bigger than the average new home, creating spacious room dimensions. The variety of 14 home designs at Hayfield Place enables purchasers to choose from modern open-plan layouts or more traditional designs. New public footpaths, a balancing pond, a biodiversity corridor that will run across the site, and a new section of bridleway and cycle route are all being created to connect Hayfield Place into the local Bedfordshire footpath network.
The idyllic village of Silsoe has a range of amenities, high quality schooling and recreation facilities. The nearby towns of Milton Keynes, Luton and Bedford offer a wealth of shopping, restaurants, entertainment and sporting facilities. Luton airport is 12 miles away, and Flitwick Railway Station is four miles away, making it an ideal location for those wishing to travel for pleasure or commute.
Hayfield is an HBF five-star builder. At the 2019 WhatHouse? Awards, held late last year, Hayfield was crowned Best Small Housebuilder. It won the same accolade at the 2019 Housebuilder Awards, and also scooped the prize for Best Customer Satisfaction Initiative. The company has also won three Pride in the Job NHBC Awards and the prize for Best Family Home under £750,000 at the 2019 Evening Standard New Homes Awards.
