The Urquhart comes with a choice of colours for its fitted kitchen, complete with four-burner hob and fan oven, while the bathrooms feature Ideal Standard’s sleek white sanitaryware.

In the rear living space, French doors open directly to a garden, filling the room with light and fresh air, making it ideal for al fresco dining in the warmer months.

Upstairs, the 98sq-ft principal bedroom boasts integrated wardrobes and the other two offer flexibility and could be turned into an office, study or home gym.

The showhome has been designed by Eileen Kesson, who has transformed the dwelling to demonstrate the possibilities that await prospective buyers.

Statement mirrors, bold light fixtures and contemporary accessories are all brought together by striking wallpaper and abstract pieces of art, while the textures and tones set the mood.

Kesson says: “Miller Homes’ showhomes are designed to inspire and delight buyers so they can see all the creative options when buying a new-build home.

“This Urquhart showhome embodies the lavish Hollywood glamour trend. We’ve used a great mixture of neutral tones and glittery textures to create a delicate flow through the home from the moment you set foot through the door.”

The model is now available for viewing and is due to be released for sale in the coming weeks.
