Saxonby Park showhome sets sail in Hartlepool
22 November 2010
Charles Church has taken inspiration from the Tall Ships races and has set sail the stunning new nautical themed showhome at its Saxonby Park development in High Throston, Hartlepool.
The Wessex showhome, a five bedroom detached property, has experienced a major overhaul with the dining room and the family room, in particular paying homage to Tall Ships.
The rooms are a nod to all things nautical and the dramatic dining room is so authentic it requires strong sea legs to walk though.
Entering the dining room you see a dramatic space, Vivienne Westwood wallpaper adorns the facing wall, and keeping with tradition and the feeling that you are dining in a ships cabin, the British flag design, based on a real ship’s flag with a weathered and sun-bleached look, provides the perfect setting for a luxurious dinner party.
Striking crimson red velvet curtains on wooden poles offer a lavish feel to accompany the old ship sideboard bolted with leather and chrome. A theatrical six seated table set with gold chargers, candelabras and wine goblets is complimented by a gold gilded mirror on the wall, an intricately carved wooden lamp and magnificent pearl chandelier.
The showhome’s family room has an airier feel and theme designed to remind you of a seaside cottage. Decorated with cream wicker furniture and navy linen curtains with rivets, Jan Constantine felt embellished cushions in blue and red also feature Union Jacks, but within a much softer tone and a more relaxing environment.
Felt wall hangings, also by Jan Constantine, accompany red and blue bunting, with a telescopic floor lamp, chrome lanterns and model ships all contributing to the crisp lines and fresh décor.
Christine Cooper, sales director for Charles Church Teesside said: “Tall Ships was such a significant event to come to Hartlepool and we wanted to really celebrate this with the launch of our luxury showhome. Not only could people come and visit during the race period, but the showhome provides a great reminder to anyone who visits of the Tall Ships celebrations we experienced.”
