Autumn is the perfect time to step inside the two new show homes which opened their doors for the first time at the award winning development of Bersted Park by Berkeley Homes.
Bersted Park provides a wide selection of homes from two bedroom apartments to two, three, four and five bedroom houses, each designed with traditional architecture coupled with contemporary layouts and specification.
Berkeley Homes chose a Loxwood style townhouse for their new show house and appointed the professionals at Phoenix Interior Design to furnish the accommodation with flair.
Managing director of Phoenix Interior Design, Susan White, said: “We’ve selected some fresh ice-cream colours and a trendy ‘boat shed’ style for this elegant four bedroom townhouse so you’ll find soft pinks, baby blues and lots of natural textures.
“The layout has been cleverly designed with family life in mind, especially the open plan kitchen which has a wonderful vaulted ceiling, so we’ve furnished this area with a table laid for eight so visitors can imagine a family living here and entertaining friends.
“There are also double doors out to the garden for an indoor/outdoor feel which we’ve enhanced with lots of plants for a feng shui balance.
“The interior design is filled with unusual elements, such as an amazing Ikat wallpaper from the US, and an unusual sideboard with hammered bronze handles.
“Glass bell light fittings contrast with the soft natural oak, shells and natural stone sculptures which are a little wink to the nature along the south coast and South Downs.
“One of my favourite rooms is the master bedroom which has an ivory floor to ceiling headboard with lighting and hand stitched linen from The White Company.
“We’ve given one of the children’s bedrooms a skateboarding theme, which ties in with the skate park at Bersted Park, and lots of accessories here are sourced from Europe for a chic, Scandi style.”
There are just 20 elegant one and two bedroom apartments at Sonning House, the centrepiece at the heart of Bersted Park, so Berkeley Homes selected the acclaimed interior designers at Alexander James Interior Design for their new two bedroom show apartment here.
“The main inspiration for the scheme was a blend of ‘country village’ style and outdoor living so we set out to create a modern country look with some classic nods,” said Caroline Rogers, interior designer at AJI.
“The neutral palette is warm and welcoming with soft browns and greys set off with a navy blue accent colour for artwork and accessories for a timeless and rather grown-up impression.
“Personally I’m especially proud of the living room as I love the silver-grey geometric rug and the collage of artwork in bedroom two is very effective.
“Overall the whole is balanced and inviting so I do hope lots of visitors enjoy not only the interior style but the apartment itself which has been beautifully designed by Berkeley Homes.”
Sonning House combines contemporary style within a traditional architecture which echoes the Arts & Crafts movement and is surrounded by the outstanding landscaping for which Berkeley Homes have become known.
Prices for the apartments at Sonning House currently start from £260,000.
Karen Wiltshire-Colban, of appointed selling agents Simply New Homes at Henry Adams, added: “Both of these new show homes are absolutely stunning, in very different but equally impressive styles.
“Bersted Park has a real sense of community so I have no hesitation in recommending the homes at Sonning Quarter to buyers looking for a stylish new home.”
The new show homes are open daily between 10am and 5pm at Bersted Park, Chichester Road, North Bersted, PO21 5DR or for more details call Simply New Homes at Henry Adams on 01243 521833.
