New show home now open in Alford

27th Jan, 2023

We have officially opened the doors to our brand new luxury showhome at Castle Road, Alford - the 4 bedroom detached ‘Tummel’!

‘The ‘Tummel’ is a fantastic 4 bedroom detached home, enjoying a spacious internal layout and an array of desirable features, styled to perfection by Thomas Fischer Interiors.

Here’s everything you need to know about this fabulous addition to our portfolio of Kirkwood showhomes…

Where is the showhome located?

The ‘Tummel’ showhome can be found at our popular Castle Road development, on the edge of the thriving Donside town of Alford.

This development enjoys a superb location - being within walking distance to the amenities in the town of Alford - and offers scenic views of the Aberdeenshire countryside, easy access to neighbouring towns and a comfortable commute to the city.

What features can I expect to find inside the showhome?

Upon entering ‘The Tummel’, you are greeted with a welcoming hallway leading to the lounge at the front of the home, with a generous open-plan kitchen and dining area to the rear. This area is undoubtedly the heart of the home, equipped with ample units and worktop space, perfect for gatherings with loved ones. The open-plan dining area features stylish French doors that lead directly to a private rear garden, making it easy to enjoy the outdoors while offering an abundance of natural light.

One of ‘The Tummel’s most notable features is the excellent amount of storage space available. The practical utility room is a great addition for keeping a busy home organised, featuring a walk-in storage cupboard in addition to the under-stair cupboard, a WC and access to the garden. A single integral garage completes the ground floor and provides further storage space for a vehicle, or outdoor toys and equipment.

Upstairs you’ll find 4 generously sized bedrooms, each benefitting from built-in storage. Bedrooms 1 and 2 enjoy the added luxury of deluxe en-suites, with the sumptuous master bedroom also hosting a desirable walk-in-wardrobe - an on-trend feature for many potential buyers! A well-appointed family bathroom and a useful linen cupboard complete the first floor.

Who is this housetype best suited to?

‘The Tummel’ is an ideal choice for those who are searching for a versatile home with space to grow, from families with growing children to couples who desire a spacious layout for entertaining guests or eventually starting their own family.

Dee Watters, one of our previous customers who moved into a ‘Tummel’ with her husband Steven, commented on the flexibility and space available inside this housetype, highlighting this as one of the reasons for her decision:

“Ensuring we have enough room for family and friends was really crucial to us. We have already turned one of the bedrooms into an office to allow for working from home, and if we want to extend our own family eventually, ‘The Tummel’ will be big enough to do that, so it gives us a lot of options.”

What is the interior design of the showhome like?

Working with Kirkwood Homes for the first time, Thomas Fischer Interiors brought their creative flair to this exciting project, with styling that impeccably showcases the ‘Tummel’s impressive features.

When developing the design concept for the showhome, one of the lead designers, Ollie said; “We took inspiration from the local Alford area and began by researching the village, focusing on the scenery and the landscape. The artwork in the hallway is very reminiscent of the surrounding hills and countryside, while the colour palette we chose is filled with neutral, natural colours and a hint of rustic tones - paying homage to the beautiful location.”

One of the key features that was important to highlight when designing the showhome was the vast amount of space throughout ‘The Tummel’. They said; “It’s typical in a 4 bedroom home that you tend to have a small downstairs, but the layout and open-plan space throughout ‘The Tummel’ makes it feel like the home goes on forever - a truly fantastic asset.”

How can I arrange a viewing of the showhome?

You can visit this brand new showhome at Castle Road from Saturday 28th January. Our friendly Sales Advisor, Michelle, is available for appointments to show you around and answer any questions you have about buying your new Kirkwood home!
