Berkshire living brought to life as show homes open at Buckler’s Park

June 21, 2018

Properties at Legal & General Homes’ newest development, Buckler’s Park, will soon be available to view for the first time at a launch event for the opening of four new show homes taking place on Saturday 14 July 2018.

Each of the units showcases one of the four unique interior finishes available at Buckler’s Park, available for customers to choose at no extra cost. Even the most design-savvy buyer can feel overwhelmed by the number of choices to make when buying a home – these options will help remove some of the uncertainty that comes with being faced with a vast array of colours and finishes while offering a carefully curated selection from design and interior experts.

Legal & General Homes worked closely with Andrew Henry Interiors to develop the four distinct choices. “People really worry about getting it wrong. To help, my team has created four colour palettes that still give buyers the opportunity to make their home truly individual, starting from an underlying design which has been created by people whose passion is working with colour and making colour work in the home,” says Director Andrew Henry.

Ten distinct styles of house are available at Buckler’s Park, giving buyers at every stage of their lives a choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes. Special attention has been paid to the balance of spaces – bedrooms are designed to a practical size; living spaces are optimised to address how people really use their homes and storage is incorporated throughout. Eight of the ten designs are on sale in Woodland Edge, the first phase, and the show homes give prospective buyers a chance to see four of these designs for themselves:

  • The Langley: a two-bedroom home with a large bathroom, en suite to the master bedroom and WC on the ground floor alongside a kitchen and separate living and dining room which opens to the rear garden.
  • The Drayton: a contemporary two-storey, three-bedroom home with an open-plan kitchen / dining area, separate living room and cloakroom / WC; upstairs are three bedrooms (one en suite, and two with generous fitted wardrobes).
  • The Ealing: a three-storey town house with separate kitchen and living areas, each large enough to accommodate dining space giving buyers the flexibility to structure their homes to best suit to them. A study / nursery, large private balconies off the master bedroom and a private back garden make these perfect for busy families.
  • The Harlington: a spacious home over three storeys, offering four bedrooms – the master bedroom opening out onto a private terrace on the second floor, a study / nursery, kitchen / dining room with a separate utility and a generous, light-filled living area which features roof lights and bi-fold doors opening to the rear garden.

Alongside Andrew Henry Interiors, which as well as creating the four colour palettes available at Buckler’s Park has also fitted out the Ealing and Harlington show homes, Legal & General Homes has also worked with Alexander James Interior Design on the Langley and Drayton show units.

Each home is built to a high-standard specification and there are no hidden costs – alongside the design options, appliances, flooring and a Hive smart thermostat are all included in the price.

Leafy surroundings and cultivating community

The current phase, Woodland Edge, sits alongside Buckler’s Country Park – a new 100-acre space with woods, ponds and pathways for residents to relax, children to play and wildlife to flourish.

Set across more than 250 acres in leafy Crowthorne in Berkshire, Buckler’s Park will have a range of amenities including shops; a community centre with spaces for workshops, classes and meetings; tennis courts; a care home and a new site for Crowthorne Church of England Primary School (rated outstanding by Ofsted). The focal point will be the Community Garden, where residents can grow food on allotments, tend to community beehives and make use of shared tool sheds and compost bins.

John Allan, Managing Director at Legal & General Homes, says: “We’ve had a fantastic response to Buckler’s Park since we launched in January and are anticipating huge interest once the public has a chance to see the homes in person. We can’t wait to welcome prospective buyers through our doors and show them the real product and help find the perfect home for them.”

Once complete, Buckler’s Park will offer 1,000 high-quality, contemporary homes. The development is surrounded by the vibrant centres of Bracknell, Reading and Wokingham and the historic hubs of Sandhurst, Ascot and Windsor. Crowthorne railway station is only a five-minute drive away and has links to London Paddington in less than an hour, making it ideal for both locals and commuters.

Prices at the Woodland Edge start at £245,000. The launch event will take place the Buckler’s Park Visitors Centre, where prospective buyers can find out more about the homes, view interior choices and see the show homes. The centre is open daily from 10.00am to 5.30pm and is located at Buckler’s Park, Crowthorne, Berkshire, just off Old Wokingham Road (sat nav postcode RG45 6LL).  High demand is anticipated so interested buyers are encouraged to book an appointment to see the homes for themselves.
