Showhome encourages buyers to put down roots in the oak trees


Homebuyers flocked for the launch of Kingston’s highly anticipated new show home at The Oaks in Sharnbrook, where 11 homes have already been reserved off plan.

Independent homebuilder Dandara has been overwhelmed by the response to the opening of five-bedroom detached The Kingston, one of 51 properties being built in the development, just 9 miles north of the bustling city of Bedford.

Simon Pendlebury, Managing Director of Dandara Northern Homes Counties, said: “We were delighted to see so many interested buyers attending the launch in The Oaks. This is a beautiful house in a very sought after location – so we expected a warm response.

“Our designers have created an incredible family home that is not only stylish, but where people can actually imagine living. The Kingston offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere with lots of nostalgic touches that really fit the current vibe as people come out of the pandemic.

Designed by Claude Hooper Interiors, The Kingston blends elements of classic British design with the latest contemporary fabrics and wallpapers in vibrant greens, fuchsias and oranges to create a beautifully curated home.

This spacious property has a welcoming reception hall leading to the bright living room with its eye-catching raspberry velvet sofas, floral ottoman and traditional panel wallpaper. At the heart of the home is the impressive 34 foot long open concept kitchen/dining and family room which opens onto the landscaped garden.

There’s a separate laundry room, office and there’s even a quirky space under the stairs for man’s best friend with a bed, lead rack and gallery of animal portraits!

Upstairs, the generously proportioned master bedroom features bold floral wallpaper that complements the dark green velvet headboard and hot pink bedspreads creating a tranquil space to relax. The guest bedroom has a sophisticated boutique hotel look, with an aqua and navy color scheme.

A toddler’s bedroom makes a real statement with its striking orange, green and white striped wallpaper and artwork inspired by iconic objects on display at the Design Museum in London, including a cassette tape, traditional radio and a classic Mini car .

A game room pays homage to the past with its math book-style grid wallpaper and vintage games and prints, including a hopscotch rug. This theme is carried over into the girl’s bedroom which has a soft dreamy feel, with a wooden dollhouse and reading nook, the perfect place to curl up with a book.

The Kingston also benefits from a double garage, driveway parking and a private rear garden.

The first buyers will move into The Oaks this summer. Each of the homes is set on generously sized plots, with open and airy living areas, spacious gardens and garage or driveway parking.

The Oaks is located in the picturesque village of Sharnbrook, with plenty of green space within and around the development. Perfect for families, there are a range of excellent schools in the area, from nursery to sixth form.

Excellent road links are available from the development, with easy access to the A6 for journeys to Bedford, Luton and Kettering. Northampton is accessible via the A45 and Cambridge via the A14. Bedford station offers services to Brighton, Corby, Gatwick Airport and London St Pancras.

Prices currently start at £370,000 for a three-bedroom semi-detached house. To learn more about The Oaks, please visit www.dandara.com or call 01234 438 106.
