On the outskirts of East Kilbride, Miller Homes at Benthall Farm is the perfect location for buyers looking for their dream home. And there’s never been a better time to visit as the beautiful Buttermere showhome is the very first of its kind in Scotland.
Positioned on the edge of South Lanarkshire’s largest town, the stunning development combines peaceful, rural living just 10 minutes from the bustling town centre of East Kilbride, and boasts easy access to Glasgow’s City Centre. Catering for families at all stages in life, Miller Homes at Benthall Farm is made up of four and five bedroom homes and is the ideal place to set up home, with Calderglen Country Park, the James Hamilton Heritage Park and Whitelee Wind Farm providing endless scope for exploring.
A coveted home in the Miller Homes portfolio, the five bedroom Buttermere has been thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of the whole family and the showhome’s interiors ooze understated luxury.
The home has been brought to life by Eileen Kesson, lead designer at Envision Interiors. Eileen tells us about the influences behind the showhome, saying: “This Buttermere is the only showhome of its type in Scotland so it had to be a show-stopper. The whole home has a very decadent feel, with a big emphasis on stunning lighting and soft, richly textured fabrics.
“Gold is a key accent of the home and is offset with dark wood furniture pieces for a dramatic and elegant contrast. The metallic shade adds a glisten of warmth so that the overall feel is rich and welcoming. These gold touches – whether a deep burnished tone or bright sunshine vibe – bring the Buttermere together to create a feeling of harmony and lightness.”
Inspired by the current trend of stylish, golden detailing, the home is ornately embellished and has a contemporary edge. A colour scheme of soft greys and dark industrial tones runs through the Buttermere, which is accented with sunny mustard colour pops and animal prints. Striking lighting features in every room, leave a lasting impression and gives the home warmth.
There’s an immediate sense of luxury in the hallway, with gold shimmering through textured wallpaper and the soft furnishings. The lounge area greets visitors with natural light thanks to its striking bay window, creating a fantastic space to relax with family. The room features matte midnight black Porcelanosa floor tiles, which are paired with a striking gold and cream rug. A soft grey sofa is finished with animal print cushions to create an indulgent feel.
The open plan kitchen and dining area is at the rear of the home. The space is ideal for cooking, dining and entertaining friends as well as relaxing with family, and French doors leading into the back garden fill the room with natural light. A contemporary black-stained wood dining table is paired with plush golden seating and the metallic theme continues into the kitchen with a soft silver textured wallpaper and light grey gloss units. The room offers the perfect balance of practicality and style – there’s plenty of worktop space in the kitchen and the adjacent laundry room and a double garage provide extra storage space.
An impressive winding staircase leads the way upstairs to five bedrooms, including a stunning master bedroom. The additional rooms give buyers the freedom and flexibility to personalise their dream home, with bedrooms four and five providing the perfect space for a cosy snug, study or teen den.
Continuing with the metallic theme, the master bedroom is a standout feature. The room shimmers with silver tones and comes complete with a private walk-in dressing room as well as a modern en suite bathroom, creating a relaxing haven to unwind in at the end of the day. A hanging chandelier creates an air of opulence and high pillar lighting on either side of the bespoke velvet headboard leaves a lasting impression.
Each additional bedroom is accented with a statement wall, from on-trend mustard and grey to a simple dusky taupe textured wallpaper. Eye-catching lighting fixtures add a fashionable edge to each room and bedroom two is beautifully styled with gold and cream textures with stylish fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room, adding practicality.
