A lesson to the architects

The large and spacious kitchen

IF I had my way, all architectural students would be made to spend six months in the design department of a park home manufacturer as part of their training, says our correspondent Doug King.

And he adds:

  • Like Dr Who's Tardis, the external appearance of the home belies the spaciousness of its interior, not to mention the number and quality of the equipment, fittings and furnishings...
  • A feature that lifts the Pennine above much of the competition is the position of the master bedroom at one end of the home and the second bedroom at the other end, ensuring the maximum degree of privacy and quiet for both the owners and their guest(s).
  • I very much like the way Homeseeker has eliminated the space you so often find between the tops of the fitted furniture and the ceiling. It is usually either wasted or used as a storage area - but whichever is the case, it is a dust trap.
  • The kitchen is to die for! It is large and spacious, with a breakfast bar and almost all the appliances necessary to make working in it a pleasure.
  • Another excellent feature is the siting of the consumer unit in the cupboard below the built-in fan assisted oven - a much more sensible position for it than at the back of one of the wardrobes, which so many manufacturers seem to prefer.
  • A further nice touch are the concealed tube lights on the underside of the wall cupboards.

Doug concludes: "I was totally enamoured by the Pennine. I can honestly say that it ranks in the top three park homes I have ever been in."
