Omar’s luxury single unit lodge gets a contemporary new twist for 2019. Bella Brodie finds out more…
At 14ft or even 15ft wide, the Southwold is one of Omar’s single unit lodges, and a financially accessible option for most buyers looking to purchase a high quality lodge built to full residential standard, BS: 3632 (2015), which means it’s suitable for use at any time of year, depending on the park’s site licence.
The exterior of the new 2019 model retains the popular features of its predecessor and includes a striking glazed front aspect, complete with French doors, so it works particularly well with decking to the front. As with all Omar models, a range of cladding finishes and colours is available.
There’s now a fresh, new contemporary silver and grey colour scheme, interchangeable with the Westfield lodge colour scheme, which we’ve also shown here.
There are vaulted ceilings throughout, and this lodge oozes sophistication and charm thanks to the build quality, fittings and fixtures.
The practical and stylish open-plan living space includes lounge, dining and kitchen areas. A hall leads to two bedrooms to the left; one shown here as a twin-bedded room; the other a master, which has a large walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom. There’s a large family shower room to the right, completing the accommodation. The minimum size for this model is 32ft x 14 and the maximum 65ft x 15, so it’s a model which makes the most of available plot space, too.
With contemporary interior design, a comfortable lounge suite, blanket box/coffee table and contemporary electric fire, the lounge is very inviting and cosy. The extensive glazing to the front, combined with the light colour scheme, makes the lounge feel really light, bright and open.
Behind this, the dining area sits to one side of the lodge and includes a round dining table set by a side window for a view. That feels more part of the kitchen than the lounge due to the flooring, as that’s a practical warm wood-effect vinyl flooring to help keep things nice and clean – particularly useful if the lodge is intended for high-end rental, as it will stand the test of time better with that. The chrome trim separates it from a deep pile carpet in the lounge so that also helps to define the area further, while matching the chrome handles in the kitchen so it stands out a little more than usual – in a good way, of course!
