First show home opens at Cruden Homes’ Longniddry Village

Longniddry Village Showhome

Traditional architecture blends with contemporary interiors in a new show home now open at Cruden’s Longniddry Village in East Lothian.

The 4-bedroom, semi-detached Northfield is a spacious family home with thoughtfully designed living spaces and an exterior that owes much to the vernacular streetscapes on this sought-after stretch of coastline.

The development itself may be new but it is part of an historic and picturesque community and the new showhome has been designed to fit harmoniously within its surroundings, while the interior has been created by designer Carol Yates to make the most of its clean lines, impressive ceiling heights and contemporary specification.

By mirroring the large skies and wide stretches of water that define this part of East Lothian, the design of the Northfield captures a real sense of space and tranquility. Light floods into the spacious lounge, thanks to front windows and French doors overlooking the garden, illuminating the pale herringbone floors, water-colour effect fabrics and natural textures, whilst dark blue velvet sofas provide a sense of luxury.

Seafoam shades and calming tones are added to the generous, open plan kitchen and family room, which spans from the front to the back of the house.  Upstairs the  four bedrooms, one with en-suite, are calm havens of understated elegance where the occasional wall-to-wall mural adds a touch of indulgence amongst eclectic furniture pieces and marine and pebble-coloured accents.

A utility room, downstairs WC and generous storage space add to the Northfield’s uncluttered feel and make it practical for every-day living.

Interior Designer Carol Yates said: “There is a sense now that people want to feel connected with nature and through the use of natural materials, Scandi-influenced colours and furniture and by adding living plants, we’ve created a sense  of harmony within the Northfield’s light-filled interior.”

Vibrant village charm

Longniddry Village is a unique development of 71 traditionally-designed coach houses, terraces, semi-detached, detached homes and bungalows within an established community, just a short walk from Longniddry station with its speedy links to North Berwick and Edinburgh. In keeping with the 18th and 19th century heritage of the wider community, back lanes that give access to garages and parking spaces make pedestrians a priority.

Landowners, Wemyss and March Estates have a clear vision of Longniddry Village as a place to live, work and play, and together with the homes, the new community will have a cafe, retail space, studio and workshops, while a new village green, sports facility, a restored mill pond, community orchard, play parks and high- quality public spaces and wild flower meadow will link the new development to the wider East Lothian landscape of countryside, beaches and golf courses.

Hazel Davies, Cruden Homes’ Sales and Marketing Director added: “The rural setting and fast links to Edinburgh gives buyers at Longniddry the best of both worlds and the characterful design and considered interior of the Northfield show home provides an inspired insight into what life could be like in this truly innovative development.”

Properties in the current release at Longniddry Village start from £359,000 for a three-bedroom family home.
