Places for People is pleased to announce that its Laurie Show Home in Longniddry Village has been shortlisted at this year’s British Homes Awards 2021. Our show home is a finalist in the ‘Best Interior Design: Development’ category.
The four-bedroom detached ‘Laurie’ – the first show home of its type in Scotland – offers a window onto modern country living at Places for People’s exclusive Longniddry Village development in East Lothian, where customers can choose from a mix of two, three and four-bedroom homes.
The impressive double-fronted house provides the ultimate wow factor, with one of the highlights being the magnificent open plan kitchen, dining and garden room which spans the depth of the home – the perfect space for flexible living and entertaining.
Period features, including tapestry wallpaper and wood panelling, have been incorporated throughout the show home, which was thoughtfully styled by interior designer Kiran Bhatia from New i.d; the overall look is soft and calm using a palette of corals and blues throughout the home.
There is also a strong link to the local area with various accessories, artwork and dried foliage wreaths all coming from local businesses.
Allison Sutherland, Sales and Marketing Director for Places for People Scotland, said: “We are very proud that our Longniddry show home has been shortlisted for Best Interior Design: Development at the British Homes Awards 2021. The Laurie has been completed to an impeccable standard to allow customers to experience for themselves modern country living with a unique classic feel, and this shortlist really testifies to the care and attention to detail that goes into our high-quality homes.”
The British Homes Awards 2021 honour every aspect of housebuilding, and the awards ceremony will take place in November.
Longniddry’s characterful homes all benefit from desirable period building features with the latest modern conveniences, with a range of stylish kitchens, floor tiles and bathroom walls to choose from and garden rooms in the larger homes.
The village itself is less than 20 minutes from Edinburgh, and residents have access to a wealth of local amenities as well as attractive green space, including a village green, restored mill pond and wildflower meadow.
