Bella Brodie runs the rule over the ever-popular Canford, a residential park home with a cosy cottage feel…

The Canford has been a popular residential home ever since its launch, with a characterful cottage feel and particularly memorable lounge set around a cosy fireplace. A popular home with practicality and style in abundance, if you’re looking for something a little different, the Canford may well fit the bill.

The Canford has two main exterior finishes available, and both are pretty eyecatching. One is a traditional stucco finish, and the other with CanExel cladding.

Step inside and the design style is equally striking. White panelled vaulted ceilings continue the contemporary edge and Oak interior doors with polished satin, stainless steel door furniture spell quality and style that flows throughout – it’s all the little details that come together to make this home truly special! Inside, a natural colour palette, clean lines and bold details such as the striking gloss aubergine kitchen units provide a perfect balance – contemporary yet timeless, reserved yet bold.

The model shown here is a 45ft x 20, although other sizes and variations are available. A large porch entrance with larger than normal walk-in coat cupboard opens into a contemporary styled lounge, then through to a spacious kitchen/diner. That in turn leads to a utility area and the back door. From the kitchen dinner an inner hallway leads to the two double bedrooms, family bathroom and study. In the master, a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite shower room complete the accommodation.

The large porch entrance with practical walk-in coat cupboard is quite a useful feature of the Canford, so before we move on to talk about the rest of the home I didn’t want to miss this out – large enough to absorb most items you might want to tuck away out of sight, this could be a really useful space.

Then into the contemporary styled lounge. Here you’ll find two comfortable sofas, feature pendant lighting, taupe painted furniture with limed oak veneer tops and a tiled feature fireplace with electric stove and a reclaimed oak mantel. This all sets the scene for the rest of the refreshed Canford, breaking away from convention to offer a refreshingly different living area to enjoy. Another striking feature in the lounge, the five full-height windows let plenty of light in, but look clean and uncluttered dressed in Roman blinds which match the cushions, tying the design in this room up with both visual impact and practicality.
