Kegworth Gate street scene

Local housebuilder Crest Nicholson has launched a brand-new show home at its Kegworth Gate development in Leicestershire. Part of the quiet village community in Kegworth, the development offers three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, making it the ideal location for first-time buyers and second-steppers looking for additional space, in a rural countryside setting.

The four-bedroom Dorking house type has been expertly dressed by interior designers Edward Thomas Interiors, giving prospective buyers the opportunity to explore the design potential and flexible living spaces available with Crest Nicholson homes. Thoughtfully designed to maximise the natural light and space to meet the needs of busy modern lifestyles, the Dorking boasts a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining, and family area across the rear of the property and separate living room providing ample space for entertaining and for large families. A separate study on the ground floor also makes for the perfect office space when working from home. With four double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms, the Dorking provides the ideal layout for families with older children or multi-generational living.

Andy Richardson, Managing Director at Edward Thomas Interiors, commented: “Our design for the Dorking at Kegworth Gate aims to provide an upscale atmosphere. A sophisticated colour palette of black and gold, combined with velvet upholstery and marble-inspired furniture, conveys the idea that this house is well-suited for hosting gatherings.

“Distinctive wallpaper in every room adds uniqueness and visual appeal. It encompasses a blend of abstract and botanical patterns, alongside an impressive panel-effect print in the study, elevating the room with a touch of elegance.”

Vanessa MacNee, Sales and Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands, commented: “Our new show home is an exciting milestone for Kegworth Gate. The development, nestled in the rolling countryside of the Midlands, is perfect for buyers looking for a small, tight-knit rural community in picturesque surroundings. There are several schemes available on selected homes at Kegworth Gate, including the industry-led Deposit Unlock scheme, and our dedicated Deposit Booster, SmoothMove and Part Exchange schemes, designed to support prospective residents in their homebuying journeys, wherever they are on the property ladder.”
