Get set for show time! Choir to celebrate unveiling of ‘breathtaking’ first show homes at landmark Cardiff development


A rousing performance by the Barry Male Voice Choir will mark the eagerly-awaited opening of the first show homes at landmark Cardiff development The Mill, Canton, on Saturday, 20 January.

Members of one of south Wales’ most long-established community choirs will perform at 12 noon when they will add their voices to the chorus of excitement surrounding the opening of our three brand-new show homes.

With demand for homes at the riverside development already fierce, the show homes will provide even more reasons to secure one of these highly desirable homes just ten minutes from the city centre.

In addition, the launch event (from 10am to 5pm) will feature an Independent Financial Advisor – who will also be on hand throughout the weekend – providing free advice on mortgages and home buying options, including the Help to Buy – Wales Equity Loan.*

“The show homes are breathtaking, we can’t wait to welcome potential purchasers inside so they can explore the opportunities offered by life at The Mill,” says Lovell regional sales director Julie Bowen. “These exciting properties result from the excellent working relationship we’ve developed with our talented partners at interior design company Jane Clayton over the past decade. The creativity and expertise they’ve brought to the show homes means the properties are a fantastic advertisement for the range of homes available at The Mill as well as the outstanding design and finishing we build into all our developments. Our show homes are packed with inspiration for buyers, wherever they are on the housing ladder – from people buying their first house to families seeking a stunning ‘forever’ home.”

Featuring an ‘edgy’ palette of purples, greys and whites, the two-bedroom Ashton house style has an urban, modern feel with monochrome accents. Its beautifully-designed interiors include a fully-fitted kitchen, with room for a dining table and a relaxed lounge, perfect for socialising and parties. This home comes with the added benefit of two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

For families or couples looking for more space, the three-bedroom Hazelwood house style features an inviting grey and cream colour scheme warmed by splashes of vivid orange. Standout features include a fun and colourful child’s bedroom with cute toy animal heads peeking out from the walls and an inviting living room with feature fireplace.

The three-bedroom Oak show home’s colour scheme offers sophisticated navy blues and blacks contrasted with shimmering metallics. The dual-aspect vast master bedroom is an opulent haven spanning the entire third floor, enhanced by luxurious fabrics and elegant furnishings including a chaise longue and dressing table – this master suite really does have the ‘wow factor’. This stunning home also features a ground-floor kitchen with enough space for a four-seater dining table and a first-floor study ideal for home working (or suitable for use as a fourth bedroom or play room – the choice is yours!). One of the bedrooms is designed for a young Star Wars fan, complete with lightsabers and stormtroopers as decorations and there is a special surprise when you enter the room!

“The look we’ve created for the three show homes matches the fresh, modern feel of the development which is so close to Cardiff city centre,” says Michelle Hooper, senior designer with interiors specialist Jane Clayton. Michelle oversaw the overall design for the three show properties, working closely with colleague Jessica Payne who designed two of the homes. Michelle comments: “Each home is geared to individual lifestyles; the two-bed show home demonstrates what an amazing first-time buy this home would be for a young professional while the three-bed show property will appeal to buyers looking for a stylish home for their growing family. With sumptuous furnishings and a wealth of space over three floors, The Oak show home is somewhere you could easily imagine spending the rest of your life.

“The focus for all three was to introduce a contemporary design scheme right for this fantastic location. The interiors are therefore very much on trend, but we’ve made sure that each house also feels like a home so that buyers can easily imagine living there and making the space their own, as well as being excited and inspired by all our new design ideas.”

Following strong take-up, four homes are currently available for sale, ready to move into, complete with carpets and an added opportunity of no stamp duty to pay for first-time buyers before 31 March 2018. Prices start from £275,995 (or £220,796 after a Help to Buy – Wales Equity Loan) for the three-bedroom Oak house style. Lovell also has just three of its Aspen house styles – one of the largest house types available at the entire development - for sale. Priced at £299,995 (or £239,996 after a Help to Buy – Wales Equity Loan), this three-bedroom home delivers highly versatile space, arranged over three storeys.
