Situated on the edge of the historic market town of Stratford-upon-Avon, Consilio is a contemporary new collection of individually designed residences by award winning homebuilder, Spitfire Bespoke Homes. Recognised for its striking architectural features and array of external finishes, Consilio offers an impressive selection of one- to five-bedroom residences, including terraced, semi-detached and detached houses. Discerning purchasers can now book their private appointment to view each of the three beautiful new show homes, stylishly dressed by acclaimed interior design company Open Door Interiors and opening their doors on Saturday 3rd October 2020.Perfectly showcasing the diverse mix of properties on offer, the three new show homes will include The Anderson – a two-bedroom semi-detached home, The Thompson – a three-bedroom semi-detached home, and The Morgan – a four-bedroom detached residence.

Matt Vincent, Sales Director at Spitfire Bespoke Homes comments: “Each of the new show homes at Consilio have been thoughtfully designed to match Spitfire Bespoke Homes’ meticulous attention to detail; offering home hunters a clear idea of the exemplary design they can expect at Consilio.”

The Morgan combines a number of visually striking features, including an eye-catching exterior façade with multiple glazed aspects, high valuated ceilings and a unique contemporary chimney. Inside, this stunning four-bedroom show home enjoys a formal living room, study, and extensive open plan kitchen/dining/family area designed across the rear of the property, providing direct access into the spacious garden via glazed bifold doors – perfect for entertaining, or eating alfresco in the summer months. Upstairs, a galleried landing provides access to each of the four double bedrooms as well as the main bathroom. The exquisite master bedroom suite plays host to a wealth of premium features including a generous en suite, walk in wardrobe and stunning private balcony accessed via glazed French doors. Bedroom two also enjoys bespoke fitted wardrobes and a further en suite.

Tracy Baker, Director at Open Door Interiors comments: “We have incorporated a number of different elements to accentuate each of the properties’ best features and tie in the location. The kitchen/dining/family room of the Morgan forms the hub of the home; so, we have used a bespoke media unit and L-shaped sofa to form a comfortable focal point. Each bedroom has been given the same level of care and attention to ensure there is a sense of continuity throughout the property; with luxurious fabrics and bespoke headboards creating a sense of drama to the respective rooms.”Tracey continues: “In terms of colour scheme, we used a mixture of taupe/brown tones with shades of green in the master, second bedroom, and some communal areas to tie in with the autumn launch of the show home. We have then married this with brass/gold furniture, which is very on trend at the moment, and complements the dark wood tones throughout the house. Bedroom 3 features a beautiful butterfly wallpaper, linking to the nearby Stratford Butterfly Farm; and bedroom four combines neutral tones with blues and science themed artwork. Finally, since working from home could become the new norm, we have implemented a bespoke desk to the study that has been designed to maximise space and storage. The overall result is a home that is as stylish and well thought out as the collection as a whole.”

Every home at Consilio epitomises 21st century living; guaranteeing both style and practical convenience. The bespoke hand-crafted kitchens have been selected from a unique range created exclusively for Spitfire Bespoke Homes; featuring contemporary handleless units paired with Premium Silestone composite quartz worktops and upstands, a selection of Zanussi integrated appliances, and Porcelanosa tiling.
