The events of ‘The Season’ are the highlights of the year for high society in England, attracting glamour, wealth and class like nowhere else. From opera and polo to rowing and horse racing, the whirl of the social season has drawn the British upper classes for centuries. For those that want to be part of the scene with a base close to the action, premium developer Millgate is creating Woodlands Lodge, an exclusive collection of homes in Sunninghill, conveniently located for many of the best events of the English summer season.
Set in the rural village of Sunninghill, Berkshire, Woodlands Lodge is located just two miles from Ascot Racecourse, where every June the royal family and the cream of society flock to Royal Ascot. The Guards Polo Club in Windsor Great Park three miles away plays host to the Cartier International Polo Tournament in July. Also less than ten minutes drive away is Wentworth Golf Club, home to the PGA Championship. With fast and convenient transport connections from Sunninghill into central London, events such as Wimbledon and the Chelsea Flower Show can be easily reached, while by car Epsom Racecourse, Glyndebourne and Goodwood are readily accessible.
Woodlands Lodge offers a premium collection of ten outstanding three-bedroom apartments set in extensive gated grounds, making this the ideal base for individuals that like to travel and want a secure lock-up-and-leave residence. All properties are finished with the peerless specification that Millgate is known for, ideal for buyers with discerning tastes who appreciate the finer things in life.
Jonathan Cranley, Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, comments: “Sunninghill is a fantastic location for those that want to enjoy the events of the summer season yet it is still a remarkably peaceful area. Woodlands Lodge is set on a quiet lane providing a tranquil environment for those that appreciate a quiet and secluded location, yet still within reach of everything that the village has to offer. The apartments exude luxury and are magnificently proportioned and finished, so that anyone downsizing will not compromise on prestige or quality.”
The collection of ten apartments is set across an impressive red brick building with traditional architectural design that includes attractive gable roofs and large windows. There are two penthouses as well as ground floor garden properties. Interiors come in a range of layouts with the choice of open-plan living spaces or separate kitchen areas, but in each the sumptuous living area leads onto a private terrace or patio. All residents will also benefit from underground parking. The building is set in carefully landscaped gardens complete with immaculate lawns and well tended planting.
As with all homes built by Millgate, craftsmanship and unwavering attention to detail is meticulous throughout the interior specification. Examples of the superior finishes include the bespoke shaker kitchens with a full range of integrated Siemens and Miele appliances and Quartz stone worktops. Master bedrooms include an en suite bathroom, as well as extensive fitted wardrobes or a walk-in dressing area. Each apartment has a utility room and built-in storage, as well as such a generous square footage to retain a sense of grandeur.
Sunninghill high street is just three minutes away from Woodlands Lodge, offering a selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. Five minutes away by car, Sunningdale has Waitrose and a more extensive range of amenities. The location is ideal for those that enjoy active pursuits such as golf, tennis and walking, with Virginia Water Lake, Royal Ascot Tennis Club and a number of outstanding golf courses nearby. And as the summer season of 2018 approaches, those that want to see and be seen at some of the world’s most famous society events will find a home at Woodlands Lodge an ideal starting point.
For those that wish to travel into London, the development is only 11 minutes from Virginia Water train station, which offers a 45-minute commute into London Waterloo. By car, the development is 27 miles from London via the M4, with alternative routes via the M3 and A40. For those that wish to travel further afield, London Heathrow airport is also only 16 miles from home.
