Award-winning developer Crest Nicholson has unveiled its first show apartment at its sought after Highlands Park development in the charming town of Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire.

Located in Barnsletts House, the two-bedroom apartment is now officially open for prospective purchasers to view. Carefully curated by the team at Interiors by Dapa, the apartment showcases the spacious living areas and high specification throughout the development, whilst offering inspiration to potential purchasers looking to maximise space within their own apartment.

Rebecca Harris, Senior Sales Manager at Interiors by Dapa, comments: “During our design process our brief from our client was to provide interiors to appeal to downsizers, and young professionals taking their first step onto the property ladder. We created a luxurious and chic vibe, combining brass with rich blues resulting in this striking yet timeless design.

“There are several ways that you can maximise space in an apartment through clever interior design. The open plan dining/ kitchen & living room space in the show apartment features a low back sofa with open chaise to one end, fitting perfectly and creating a fluid and open space.  We selected a feature rug to zone the living space and incorporated the striking glass topped dining table to provide a feeling of space while also reflecting the light.  Lighting is vitally important both in smaller spaces & for a sense of wellbeing, as are the colour   choices.  We selected cool oyster to balance the richer, darker tones.”

The apartments at Highlands Park boast spacious open plan layouts, featuring contemporary fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances including oven, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Each home also offers outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace, ideal for the entertaining friends.

David Hnyda, Sales & Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Chiltern, comments: “Our collection of apartments at Highlands Park are ideal for first time buyers, or downsizers looking for low maintenance homes, without compromising on space and lifestyle.  The stunning show apartment gives purchasers a feel for what they can expect from apartment living, particularly the lock up and leave aspect of apartment living.

“With properties at our Highland Park development in Henley-on-Thames in high demand we recommend potential purchasers register their interest and book an appointment to view the new apartment.”
