Serene Green Means Less Stress With Millgate

Serene Green Means Less Stress With Millgate

Research by the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt’s OPENspace research centre has added weight to a growing body of evidence that living in greener areas reduces stress[1]. The study of 35 to 55 year olds found that every 1% increase in green space resulted in a corresponding decrease in stress levels. Indications are that anxiety, chronic fatigue and even post-traumatic stress disorder can also be improved for those who live in greener areas. As such, luxury homes developer Millgate has ensured that its latest apartments – at The White House in Englemere, Berkshire – can be enjoyed with less stress, thanks to their beautiful green surroundings.

Set within 12 acres of stunning landscaped grounds, the four, two bed apartments at The White House offer contemporary living with an incredible backdrop. A walk through the beautiful grounds cannot help to soothe the soul, while the on-site tennis courts and outdoor swimming pool also provide plentiful opportunities for enjoying the stress-busting benefits of regular exercise.

Jonathan Cranley, Sales and Marketing Director at Millgate comments: “The importance of access to green space for a healthy lifestyle and enhanced wellbeing are increasingly being highlighted by scientific research. Abundant outdoor space is a key factor in reducing stress levels. In a world where technology is making it ever harder to switch off, it is incredibly important to use natural elements to assure a balanced and healthy home environment that encourages mental wellbeing.”

The peace and tranquillity of The White House certainly does that. The 12-acre grounds offer plenty of room for enjoying the great outdoors, while the high specification, spacious interiors provide the perfect setting for happy family life. The two-bedroom apartments have large windows, affording plenty of natural light into the homes and lovely views over the extensive grounds. The Royal Institute of British Architects reports that 63% of people rate natural light as the most important aspect of a home, and The White House offers this in abundance[2]. Natural light in the home can reduce insomnia, depression, obesity and much more.

The White House apartments also benefit from a range of superb local facilities. The famous Ascot Racecourse is within walking distance, as is Ascot’s high street and train station. Central London (Waterloo) is less than an hour away by direct train, meaning that residents also enjoy easy access to the sights and sounds of the capital. Such a fast connection also makes commuting into London for work an easy option.

Ashley Mason, Head of Residential Development South East at Knight Frank, the selling agent for the development, added: “The White House enjoys an excellent location for making the most of both the local area and the economic and cultural advantages of proximity to London. At the same time, the idyllic setting provides the stress-reducing benefits of life surrounded by greenery and beauty. It’s a winning combination that can’t help but impress.”
