Spectacular New Showhome

Spectacular New Showhome



Merchant Homes has unveiled a spectacular new showhome at its popular Glasgow East development, showcasing contemporary 21st century family living through bespoke interior design.


The Lewis showhome, a spacious four-bedroom detached home exclusive to the Scottish homebuilder’s Lochwood Gardens development, offers potential homebuyers a glimpse into the luxurious lifestyle on offer.


Comprising an impressive mix of no less than seven house types, Lochwood Gardens has an offering of two, three and four-bedroom detached, semi-detached and terraced homes. The unique development already boasts two sumptuous showhomes including the three-bedroom semi-detached, Arran and the three-bedroom detached, Jura housetypes.


Known for spectacular showhomes thanks to the modern build and layout of each Merchant Homes’ housetype, the sumptuous interior design, styled by Carol Ann Lever of Clever Design, has ensured The Lewis is no different.


The newly unveiled showhome conveys an elegant, yet warm and inviting feel, which is centred solely on family living. Each generously proportioned room incorporates living, working, and relaxing, creating the ideal abode for growing families and those in search of their new forever home.


Moody neutral tones run throughout the ground floor with varying shades of taupe and bronze providing a cohesive backdrop with splashes of personality injected into each room through accent colours and layering textures and materials.


Families will benefit from the large open plan kitchen, dining and family room at the rear of the property which will act as a bustling hub for family gatherings.


The contemporary, streamlined kitchen with taupe gloss cabinets are complemented by a sophisticated anthracite worktop. The dining furniture offsets the modern kitchen with a pale timber dining table and stylish benches, illuminated by a four-bulb feature hanging light.


The family area features shades of vibrant mustard in the sofas and furniture. The Lewis also benefits from French doors leading out into the well-sized garden, allowing light to pour into the kitchen area.


For those who enjoy entertaining, the lounge at the front of the home is the perfect place to do so. All four walls are wrapped in a textured bronze wallcovering which bodes perfectly with the floor length curtains and feature upholstered pelmet.


The neutral scheme is enhanced by satin brass, bronze and monochrome accents throughout the room including contemporary soft industrial-style light fittings and a collection of black and white photographs of Glasgow.


The ground floor is complete with a cloakroom, utility space and a storage cupboard.


Upstairs, the warm neutral theme continues into the master bedroom which create a calming escape from the outside world. Carol Ann has tactfully combined natural shades with contrasting textures which slowly reveal themselves as you walk into the room.


The main focal point of the room is the fully upholstered bed which has been custom-designed and is adorned with sumptuous velvet and chenille. The statement pendant light – which is finished in mercury mirror – also catches the eye as you enter the room. A light and airy en-suite completes the master bedroom.


Interior designer Carol Ann Lever of Clever Design, said: “My aim for The Lewis was to really showcase modern family living within this new urban community.


“I wanted to ensure prospective buyers could envision themselves living, working and relaxing in the home whilst also having a liveable design in which they could easily replicate if they wish.


“With four spacious bedrooms, the home can adapt to the family as they grow and the use of the fourth bedroom as a home office is the ideal example.”


Linda McLuskie, sales and marketing director for Merchant Homes, said: “We are thrilled that we have been able to launch our third showhome at Lochwood Gardens.


“Each showhome presents homebuyers with different opportunities while each homestyle complements the other. It really is the perfect community for those looking to start or grow their family.

“Whilst there are currently none of the Lewis housestyles available at present, there will be plots released throughout 2021 and with demand continuing to be high, interested parties are advised to view and keep in contact with our sales and marketing team


The boutique collection of homes at Lochwood Gardens comprises a contemporary mix of 121 homes.  The next phase due to be released will comprise 2 bed terrace/semi-detached Iona, 3 bed semi-detached Blair and Arran, and the 4 bed detached Lewis. Prices from £155,000.


The sales & marketing suite is open seven days from 11.00am – 5.30pm and is appointment only. For information on availability and future releases, please register at or call 0141 378 6885.
