April 2014 - Did you know you could own one of our stunning show apartments?
Buying a new home, when you don’t own any furniture, is often a daunting task for first time buyers. However, at Mulberry House, Merchant Gate, buyers can snap up one of four beautiful fully-furnished show apartments with just a 5% deposit; offering a home that is ready to move into.
The four stylish, contemporary apartments have been kitted out by a specialist interior designer and each one features a unique décor and colour scheme to suit a range of tastes. The interiors vary from a voguish Scandinavian theme - offering muted greys with flashes of mustard yellow and chrome furnishings, to a colourful pink, yellow and black - or ‘rhubarb and custard’ inspired décor - an homage to Wakefield’s reputation as the rhubarb capital of the UK. Each show apartment - which includes two 1 beds and two 2 beds - has been fitted out with contemporary, high specification furnishings and fittings, with every little detail taken care of - from stylish sofas to sophisticated rugs and tasteful lighting features.
Book a tour to view the four show apartments now by calling 01924 339 468 or emailing email@example.com, or visit the Merchant Gate sales office which is open Thursday to Monday between 10am and 5pm.
