Show home a resounding success at Aberdeen's The Grange development

Aberdeen has welcomed a luxury new show home in its West End, thanks to independent housebuilder Dandara. The five-bedroom home at The Grange was launched in November and has been a resounding success amongst homebuyers both local and further afield.

The Yew boasts a sunroom, spacious garden and five good sized bedrooms and is situated just three miles from the heart of Aberdeen. The show home features nods to the various sports offerings in the local area and consists of a warm, nature inspired palette of stone, deep burnt orange and soft fern green.

Claire Bathgate, Head of Sales at Dandara Aberdeen said: “We had an extremely busy launch weekend here for the Yew show home and have had a steady flow of visitors, both prebooked and walk-ins since then. It’s extremely encouraging to see people interested in buying, especially due to the time of year, which traditionally is quieter as people focus their attention on the festivities.

“The consensus amongst most of our visitors is that there is a definite warm and welcoming feel to the show home – it isn’t too ‘blingy’, it has the wow factor, but it feels like a real home and therefore it's easy for people to envision actually living here.”

The Yew features a spacious layout with an impressive lounge with double doors leading through into the large open plan kitchen/dining and sunroom. Designed to be the hub of the home, this space is inviting and cosy, yet extremely functional. The large dining table sits in the heart of the room, while the oversized comfy sofa is perfectly positioned to curl up and enjoy views of the garden. Elements such as feature shelving and sleek indigo shaker style kitchen units create a stylish and luxurious space to enjoy cooking, entertaining and spending time with loved ones.

Downstairs also hosts a spacious WC, a utility room with access to the back garden and a large cupboard, perfect for stowing away both raincoats and muddy boats after a long day exploring Hazlehead Park.

On the upper level, you'll find five spacious double bedrooms, two of which boast private ensuites, complemented by a shared family bathroom. The primary bedroom exudes a luxurious ambiance reminiscent of an upscale boutique hotel, featuring striking orange and silver botanical print wallpaper, sleek bedside tables, and an opulent bed adorned with a chic cinnamon-coloured suede headboard.

The outdoors theme continues upstairs across three of the five bedrooms. Bedroom three is inspired by the local equestrian club, Hayfield, with a variety of textures and patterns such as suede, ginghams, and wicker. The children’s bedroom utilises fun pops of navy and mustard yellow in its homage to the Gordonians, the local hockey club in the area, while bedroom five has been transformed into an office space for two, with nods to golf in the monochromatic prints and green velvet chairs.

Rebecca Jones, from Interior Design specialist Claude Hooper, said: “The show home’s palette is inspired by the brand Neptune, featuring lots of natural stone bases, with a strength of colour presented in key pieces such as the wallpapers, upholsteries, and artwork. You will see a lot of deep, burnt oranges, navies, and soft fern greens throughout. The scheme mixes traditional elements with a contemporary twist with undertones of luxury family living.”

The Grange is just over 10 minutes-drive from the international attractions of Aberdeen where residents can enjoy cafés, restaurants, shops, and cultural attractions of one of the UK’s most exciting and rapidly developing cities.  The city was recently named as the third best place to live in the UK by resident review site HomeViews.

Hazlehead Park, with its children’s playground and café, is on the doorstep of the development and there are superb local amenities, and access to the River Dee perfect for weekend walks.

Ideally located for commuters, Aberdeen train station is just a few miles from The Grange and offers regular train services throughout Scotland. For travel by road, residents benefit from their close proximity to the A90 which connects them to Dundee and Edinburgh, whilst the A96 heads further up north to Inverness.

The final day to view The Yew before Christmas is Saturday, the 23rd of December. The show home will reopen again on the 3rd of January 2024, at 10am. Find out more
