Victory Vermillion – A touch of class

85d820fd-b9e1-4626-8738-45673729612b
THE Vermillion from the new Hull-based manufacturer Victory Leisure Homes, sits above the Ventura and Vermont models in the company’s portfolio, and a Vermillion Deluxe is now available, too.

There’s definitely a touch of class in the design and layout, and that begins on the exterior, a large bay with four tall windows at the front and a feature light and double, patio-style doors on the side aspect leading into the living area, with the bedrooms to the right, and the kitchen directly ahead.


Opulent


The triple aspect lounge is lit by those three-quarter height windows across the front elevation, which have horizontal blinds. The chocolate-coloured leather sofas (one with a pull-out bed), are set in an L shape around a glass-topped, leather-covered coffee table.

The 2kW electric fire is in a high gloss glass surround with beech coloured drawers and shelves, space for a DVD player and additional electrical gadgets. With the black framed mirror above the fire, the living area has an opulent look, yet practical and comfortable and is well lit with two square ceiling lights each with four bulbs. The other heat source is two radiators, one of which is behind one of the sofas (and I wonder how much heat the sofa will absorb).


Stunning


The dining area has a beech coloured table and four black leather chairs with a stunning brown suede inset panel down the back of each chair, and an eye-catching light fitting over the table. Just where you might miss it, on the partition wall behind the table, is a fabulous feature mirror.

I must mention the drapes. They are dress curtains, with which I don’t have a problem, but I do think that the ones hanging by the double doors need a tie-back. An oatmeal coloured carpet runs though the main accommodation areas.


Practical


The kitchen has an integrated fridge/freezer, an eight-place dishwasher and a freestanding microwave as standard. Storage is good, with five vinyl-wrapped Chocolate and oatmeal weave design eye level cupboards with a contrasting fascia, five matching base cupboards and a set of drawers.

The matt black granite-look worktops have an upstand, a popular design feature this year, as are the vertical stainless steel-look handles on the cupboards, and I did like the hob’s glass lid that becomes the splashback.

A peninsular unit divides the living area and kitchen – it’s a well designed element that is also practical with a feature light over it. The vinyl covered floor is also practical.


Generous


The hall cupboard is generously sized for the central heating boiler, has hooks for coats, and room to store buckets, wellies, vacuum cleaner etc. I would prefer to see vinyl on the floor rather than the carpet as fitted.


Pamper space


The master bedroom has a walk-in dressing room with mirror-fronted doors, which hide a clothes rail, shelves, drawers, the RCD box and aerial amplifier. With an upholstered stool at the dressing table, a shelf and double power point and an illuminated mirror, this is the place to pamper yourself.... And there is a shaver socket too, if you must let the man in your life into the dressing room. I have a minor gripe – I think it needs a couple of shelves above the mirror.

The bedroom has a 4ft 6ins divan bed with freestanding bedside tables each side, a padded head board and striking feature wall panel above the bed. The three-quarter height windows have full length voiles with a turquoise, coffee and cream sunray design which pick out the turquoise colour in the curtains. There is not a lot of space between the bed and the window and, again, I think the curtains need a tie-back. The en-suite, with a pedestal hand basin and dual flush lavatory, thankfully has a vinyl floor covering like all the Victory Leisure Homes to date.

The second bedroom has 2ft 6ins twin divan beds with a freestanding bedside cabinet in between them and padded headboards. The curtains are the same design and colour as the master bedroom.


Wet and dry


The shower room has a rectangular one-piece shower with a sliding door and somewhere either to sit or to put your feet on to wash them. There’s a shelf for those nice pampering lotions and potions and, when you want to dry off, there’s plenty of room to dry without banging your elbows. The rectangular basin is set on a chocolate and oatmeal coloured worktop with beech shelves and drawers.


OUR VERDICT


There is certain opulence to the Vermillion Super and clever use of space. Quality and value for money are key criteria for the company and there seems to be both in the Vermillion Super.
