IS THIS NEW LUXURY LODGE THE IDEAL HOME?

75f7c55d-37ce-4f6c-ad0a-cb3bd7724409

What makes the ideal home? Where better to find out than the Ideal Home Show.

Now into its 106th year, this annual event attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to its 600-plus stands at London’s Earls Court exhibition centre.

Flying the flag for the park and holiday home lifestyle were Prestige and the Dream Lodge Group.

Pride of place was taken by a brand-new design called the Casa Di Lusso, a joint effort between the two companies.

This twin-unit lodge, available in two widths (20ft and 22ft) as well as three lengths (40ft, 45ft and 50ft), can best be described as a traditional home with a contemporary twist.

A first for Prestige, the Casa Di Lusso has a split-level roof. Inside, another first for this park and holiday home manufacturer is a four-poster bed. Plus a new design of coving designed to get round the age-old problem in such homes of cracks appearing at the join between the ceiling and the walls.

There are several other features of the two-bedroom Casa Di Lusso which reinforce its credentials as a lodge. They include real-wood-clad interior walls (as well as a cedar-clad exterior) plus plank-effect ceramic tiles in the bathroom and master bedroom en-suite.

That’s not to mention plenty of ‘distressed wood’ trim inside, a laminate floor throughout and traditional-style freestanding timber furniture. Mustn’t forget either the mock log-burning stove (in reality an electric fire) complete with a supply of genuine logs.
