Open plan family living is key in Harrogate

15 October 2020

It’s said that a kitchen is the heart of the home and according to Persimmon Homes sales advisor Louise Chapman at King Edwin Park, in Harrogate, an open plan kitchen living room certainly tops the list with prospective home buyers when they view the Strand show home.

“A kitchen is no longer simply a place where you make meals - it’s a space to cook, eat, entertain and relax,” said Louise.

“This purposefully-designed living space is literally the centre of family life and we are finding more home buyers are looking for that versatile open plan living style.”

Kitchen design and functionality is key at the Persimmon Homes development, off Penny Pot Lane, with all its properties offering a dining area and many featuring additional space for relaxing within the same area.

The term ‘family room’ comfortably describes this universal open plan space, allowing families to use and adapt the area to meet their individual lifestyle needs.

“The Persimmon Homes open plan kitchen dining family room space in the Strand spans the entire width of the five-bedroom property,” explains Louise.

“A U-shaped integrated kitchen provides a sociable area of food preparation and cooking. The central section features a dining table and the far end can comfortably accommodate a sofa, with double patio doors leading to the garden.

“This open plan design allows homeowners to design and create a living space to suit their lifestyle whether it is creating a play room, a dedicated office space for working from home or maximining entertaining with a much larger dining area, the space can be very flexible.”

The Victorian spa town of Harrogate is renowned for its beauty with quaint streets bursting with shops and eateries, historic houses, landscaped gardens - and King Edwin Park is just two miles from this attractive and popular destination.

“The Persimmon Homes development is close enough to the buzz of the picturesque spa town yet surrounded by countryside.”

Louise added: “This rural influence is evident in the show home interiors, with each room featuring wooden flooring or furniture, married with crisp white kitchen units and soft greys accessories.

Contrasting bright yellow accents cleverly add a splash of vibrancy and, teamed with the more dramatic teal tones, create a luxurious and welcome feeling from the moment you step through the front door.”
