SURREY BUYERS : A current shift in homebuyer priorities has meant that more people are looking to move out of London in favour of a home with better access to the outdoors, and more space to relax in at home. Those on the hunt for these particular attributes should look no further than the leafy, once overlooked commuter town of Camberley in Surrey where, according to exclusive Dataloft research, apartments boast 8% more square footage than in wider Surrey. Alongside this extra internal space, 92% of Camberley residents benefit from private or shared outdoor space compared to just 67% in wider Surrey, and 81% of homes have access to ultra-fast broadband, 16% higher than in Surrey as a whole. With this in mind, award-winning developer Berkeley is thrilled to present LUMINA, a collection of designer apartments situated in the heart of this sought-after suburban town, encapsulating everything today’s buyers could possibly want in a home.
Boasting an impressive architectural design, LUMINA makes a striking addition to Camberley town centre. The scheme comprises a stylish collection of one and two-bedroom apartments, designed and finished to the exceptional standard of which Berkeley is renowned. Residents will also benefit from a wide range of on-site facilities – including an exclusive resident’s lounge, fitness suite, and private screening room.
Harry Lewis, Managing Director at Berkeley Homes Southern, comments: “More space, access to a garden, balcony or park, and fast broadband for flexible working are just some of the things many homebuyers now consider paramount in their home. We understand that buyer’s needs are evolving as a result of the past year’s events, so we are proud to say that LUMINA offers precisely everything that a modern-day buyer is looking for. Camberley scores top-marks for all three pointers, in addition to an average price by square footage saving compared to wider Surrey, providing buyers with more space for less money. Couple this with easily accessible amenities and excellent transport links into the city, and LUMINA is the perfect place for young, aspiring professionals to call home.”
Apartments at LUMINA have been designed to balance space with style. Open plan arrangements in the kitchen/living/dining spaces help to maximise the sense of space and light and all rooms enjoy a superb specification. Individually designed kitchens are sleek and contemporary, with a choice of door and composite stone worktops, LED downlighting and a range of NEFF integrated appliances. Bathrooms are equally well-appointed, featuring bespoke mirrored cabinets, built-in storage space to vanity units, and chrome fixtures and fittings.
Within the development, residents can make use of an exclusive fitness studio, business lounge, and private screening room for movie nights; in addition to landscaped communal areas, cycle storage, secure parking and electric car-charging points.
When it comes to LUMINA’s location, residents couldn’t be better placed. The scheme is conveniently situated in the heart of Camberley town centre, an area in the midst of a multimillion-pound regeneration. Major investment has been poured into updating and improving the area’s offering; adding a range of brand-new facilities for local people to enjoy, such as ‘The Square’ shopping centre, a state-of-the-art leisure facility, and a new cultural quarter on London Road.
Those in search of that all-important green space are truly spoilt for choice in Camberley, with the verdant hubs of Pennyhill Park and Spa, Swinley Forest, and Lightwater County Park all within minutes of home; providing ample opportunity for a leisurely walk, run or cycle.
For retail therapy, Camberley is well served by a choice of high street names, in addition to a selection of independent shops and boutiques. Alternatively, The Atrium and The Square shopping centres provide a welcome environment to shop, meet, eat and drink. Alternatively, residents can grab a bite to eat at one of Camberley’s many restaurants; with the choice of mouth-watering burgers at 7Bone Burger Co, aromatic Indian feasts at Mehdi, Tex-Mex flavours at Chiquito or a Sunday roast at the charming 16th century Crown and Cushion pub.
Finally, LUMINA is ideally placed for commuters, with Camberley station situated adjacent to the development; whisking travellers to Farnborough and London Waterloo in 35 minutes and one hour respectively.
