We reveal four UK homes for sale with spectacular dressing rooms

Voice Of EU

A dressing room is a must-have feature for wealthy buyers willing to splash out on their next luxury home. 

They can be fully customised and in some instances, may even cost more than an average kitchen. They may have central islands of their own, vaulted ceilings and walls of shelves and wardrobes.

They tend to sit next to the main bedroom, although guest rooms may also be lucky enough to have their own addition.

'Having a room dedicated to the business of getting dressed has never been more desirable,' says property buyer Sarah Broughton

‘Having a room dedicated to the business of getting dressed has never been more desirable,’ says property buyer Sarah Broughton

Sarah Broughton, of buying agency Prime Purchase, said: ‘Having a room dedicated to the business of getting dressed has never been more desirable.

‘Buyers of large, luxury homes are often willing to forsake a guest bedroom – or two – for his and hers walk-in wardrobes.’

She added: ‘No expense is spared when it comes to design. The best dressing rooms are highly functional, fully customised and made from beautiful wood, which can be fully glazed or panelled. Plenty of shelves and drawers for storage are a must.

‘It is not unheard of for homeowners to spend as much on a beautifully crafted dressing room as they would on the kitchen, and we all know how much a decent kitchen can cost.’

And with London Fashion Week taking place last weekend, the event that sets the trends for wardrobe contents throughout the country – fashionistas will be even more keen for somewhere to keep and display their prized clothes.

Tom Parker, of property website Zoopla, said: ‘Luxurious walk-in wardrobes have long been a status symbol for owners of luxury properties, and a ‘must-have’ for any discerning fashionista.

‘Even if you’re not a Fashion Week attendee, investing in a walk-in wardrobe can add value to your home, give you additional floor space in your bedroom and keep your garments in great condition.’

Hotel Indigo debuts in Austria

Voice Of EU

Published

on

Hotel Indigo opened its first hotel in Austria, Hotel Indigo Vienna – Naschmarkt. Located a short walk from the city’s historic center, the hotel offers 158 guest rooms, a rooftop garden resembling an urban jungle, a restaurant, and a lobby bar.

 

Taking inspiration from a famed local architect, Otto Wagner, a key member of the Secessionist movement, guests will find touches of gold used throughout the fixtures in the bathrooms as well as intricate patterns, made famous by Otto, woven into the carpet design in the hallway, and the tiles behind reception. Otto’s love for gold, Art Nouveau design, and ornate patterns can also be seen at famous local buildings such as the Majolikahaus, a short walk from the hotel. From ground level, the building looks innocuous, but as guests look skywards, they will see the top floors are decorated with exquisitely sumptuous floral motifs in brightly colored porcelain and gold leaf, a hallmark of the new style.

 

Stefanie Augustin, General Manager, Hotel Indigo Vienna – Naschmarkt, commented: “We are pleased to open our doors and accept our first guests into the first Hotel Indigo in Austria. We sit in the heart of the surrounding neighbourhood and strive to make all the locals proud, by helping to bring a bit of that external story in so guests can truly experience what Vienna has to offer.”

Tolent secures Newcastle resi project (GB)

Tolent will put up 135 ‘ultra-modern’ system-build homes, with designs selected from an architectural competition. Sunderland’s new Vaux neighborhood, being built on the site of an old brewery, will eventually have 1,000 homes, according to the plans, as part of a drive to double the number of people living in the city centre. The homes will stand alongside The Beam and City Hall – the latest development to rise from the ground at Riverside Sunderland. Construction work on the scheme is expected to start within weeks, forming the first of the new distinct neighbourhoods that will create city centre housing for up to 2,500 residents.

 

The properties are based on the winning designs in the Homes of 2030 competition, which was launched in March 2020, and managed by the Royal Institute of British Architects, to encourage the design of environmentally-friendly homes that support people in leading independent, fulfilling lives as society ages.? Construction work on the development is due to start this summer and the first tranche of homes should be completed by the end of 2023.

 

Sunderland City Council leader Graeme Miller said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to have taken this final step to get work started on our flagship residential scheme at Riverside Sunderland. The housing developments on Riverside Sunderland will be world-class, and Tolent is an ideal partner to deliver them, based locally and capable of building these aspirational homes.”

 

Tolent chief executive Paul Webster said: “Vaux neighbourhood is an amazing project that showcases the strides being taken in Sunderland to modernise the city centre. The world-class houses being built will provide a community fit for the future and an archetype for sustainable housing. As a truly local business, we are proud to be involved in the project and to showcase our ability to meet and exceed the capabilities of national contractors on a local level. The project will complement a number of local landmarks that we have constructed including The Beam, Beacon of Light and Echo Building. We have been working closely with the entire team since being appointed preferred bidder back in September and we can’t wait to get started.”
