Individuals who partake in an active lifestyle are more likely to benefit from higher life satisfaction. Recent research also suggests participation in physical activity plays a pivotal role in creating happier communities. Hampshire is one county where homebuyers can reap the rewards of living within a community close to a vast choice of sporting amenities. There are facilities to satisfy an array of sporting appetites, including swimming and fitness, winter sports, outdoor pursuits and indoor adventures. Bellway Homes has launched a brand new development in the heart of the county at Corunna, the second phase of homes at the Wellesley regeneration scheme in Aldershot.
Corunna is a collection of homes comprising one and two bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five bedroom houses. The variety of styles offered is certain to appeal to a wide range of buyers. From first time buyers and professionals who would like access to fitness facilities before or after work, to families who would like to enjoy a fun-filled day out or sports enthusiasts looking to take advantage of more adventurous activities – there is something for everyone to enjoy close to home.
Less than three miles away from Corunna is Aldershot Pools and Fitness Centre, where residents can take advantage of a full range of indoor activities including a gym, fitness classes and swimming pool and is home to Aldershot Lido, open all year round. Alpine Snowsports Centre is located less than 15 minutes’ walk from home, a great venue for winter sports enthusiasts. MFA ten-pin Bowling complex is only a 10-minute walk away and for adrenaline-junkies, Aldershot Raceway and Team Sport Indoor Karting are both less than two miles away. Other recreational facilities nearby include Horseshoe Lake Watersports Centre and tree-top adventures at Go Ape in Farnham. There is extensive open space around the development which provides a scenic backdrop for outdoor pursuits such as walking and running and an on-site gym.
Nathan Stevenson, Regional Director at Bellway Homes’ South London division, comments: “This latest phase of the Wellesley scheme will most definitely have something to offer everyone. There is such a diverse range of facilities close to Corunna, which is set in attractive surroundings that will add to what is already becoming a vibrant community.”
All of the homes at Corunna are designed to a high-quality specification and incorporate desirable design features throughout perfect to compliment today’s modern lifestyles. These include open-plan living spaces, fully-fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, and crisp, contemporary bathrooms and en-suites. All homes have garages or designated parking spaces, and many enjoy their own private outdoor space.
Aldershot is currently undergoing a £1.8 million regeneration as part of Rushmoor Borough Council’s efforts to revitalise the town. Included in this, the 630-acre Wellesley site has begun its transformation into a new neighbourhood. As part of the well-considered masterplan, several historic and listed military buildings will be carefully refurbished into new homes and community facilities including two brand new primary schools and a central park and neighbourhood centre.
Corunna is ideally situated for transport links to local destinations such as Farnham, Farnborough, Woking and Guildford. Travel into London is afforded through convenient and nearby access onto the M3 route or the A31, A3 and M25 road links. Aldershot Station is around a 15-minute walk from the development, offering routes into many major cities and locations across the south-west of England as well as access to connections for the rest of the country.
