Everybody wants something different from their home but, when it comes to buying for a family, there are some must-have requirements which few are prepared to compromise on.
These include a multi-purpose and spacious kitchen, where the family can convene for anything and everything from informal meals and dinner parties to homework and handicraft projects; close proximity to good schools; and to be within ‘walking distance’ of a main line station either for everyday commuting or weekend recreational outings to London.
Holcombe House Gardens in Sunningdale, the newly launched development from Bewley Homes, has each of these in abundance.
Situated in an exclusive private setting, just off London Road, Holcombe House Gardens is amazingly accessible being only 0.2 miles from Sunningdale Station (from where there is a direct main line service into London Waterloo from 53 minutes) and situated close to both the M3 and M25 motorway networks. The area benefits from a wide selection of independent and state schools including Holy Trinity Primary School, Sunningdale School, The Marist Prep School, Cheapside Primary School, Heathermount School, St George’s and St Mary’s. Recreational facilities in the vicinity range from polo and spa at the Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park; to Golf at either Sunningdale or Wentworth Golf Clubs; to racing at nearby Ascot or Windsor. Furthermore, when you need to pop out to grab that one essential food item you’ve forgotten to get, Waitrose is only a quick dash up the road, next to the station.
When it comes to the accommodation on offer, the houses come with the usual attention to detail for which Bewley Homes is renowned – good ceiling heights, spacious proportions, fine attention to detail but the distinction with Holcombe House Gardens is that Bewley really has put the requirements of family firmly at the top of the list.
Each house offers a spacious kitchen / breakfast room either incorporating, or with a separate, family room and in every case, leading directly onto the back garden – a perfect forum for everyone to be together; whether that’s sitting round the table eating; writing an essay; or helping get everything ready for a dinner party. In addition, every property comes with a formal sitting room – somewhere the grown-ups can escape to; a utility room – essential for keeping on top of all the mounds of laundry which a family inevitably creates; as well as garaging – helpful either as additional storage or to keep the car.
Depending on the size and needs of a family, purchaser’s may be tempted by the offer of a study and 5 bedrooms in plots 2, 3 and 5; or may prefer to opt for 4 bedrooms in plots 1 and 4.
Neil Simpson, Sales and Marketing Director at Bewley Homes, says: “Any family looking to move to the Sunningdale and Ascot area, really should put Holcombe House Gardens at the top of their search. In my opinion, it cannot be beaten either in terms of quality or location, at this price level.”
