A wall of mirrors emphasises the spaciousness of the Elan show home lounge at The Hyde, Kinver

WITH potential for stunning views and good commuter connections, plus a high specification and ease of maintenance, new homes in Kinver offer the perfect cocktail of ingredients for buyers.

Properties at The Hyde were initially sold off plan, but Elan Homes has now opened a show home to give house hunters the chance to drink in the setting and the high specification offered in the new build homes.

Elan Regional Sales Director Tracey Ball said: “Kinver is a lovely place with lots of history and is a great option for buyers at different stages of life. We’d secured a number of off plan reservations but many other people wanted to be able to see a finished product to appreciate the quality and finish before making a commitment.

“With this in mind we enlisted the expertise of Edward Thomas Interiors to design and install a two-bedroom Malham style property that’s equally well-suited as a starter home as it is to downsizers. The result is a fresh and modern home buyers can imagine themselves living in.”


The Malham features a lounge to the front, with well-equipped open plan kitchen/ dining room to the rear. There’s also a handy cloakroom and useful store cupboard.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en-suite, effectively leaving the family bathroom to serve the other bedroom.

Edward Thomas Interiors’ managing director, Andy Richardson explained: “When styling a show home we always try to think about how people really live and therefore  create a look that people will remember. Colour is really important in the home and can help your mood. We’ve combined blush pink, emerald sage green and accents of metallics to give an elegant and contemporary feel throughout the property. A wall of mirrors emphasises the light and airy lounge space, as well as providing a contrast in tones with the charcoal sofa. The simple lines of the coffee table coordinate well with the floating round geometric shelf which we’ve styled as a gin bar to reflect the relaxed lifestyle people can enjoy when they buy a brand new home.”

In the open plan kitchen/ dining room, the sophisticated  dining chairs are upholstered in emerald green with gold legs that complement those of the glass topped round table and statement gold clock.

“It’s really important to highlight the flexibility of a home and as working from home has become more of a necessity for buyers this year, we’ve included a work space within one of the bedrooms to demonstrate how this space can be multifunctional. ” Andy added.

A two-bedroom Malham is available from £280,000. For those looking for a larger property, The Hyde also features a choice of three and four-bedroom homes, including some three-storey designs, with prices from £335,000.
