The well-being of home-buyers is a top priority at the Fitzroy Collection, the newest all-private development from Hodson Developments.
The quality developer has created a unique green setting for buyers at its stylish apartments with large communal gardens, beautiful lawns as well as benches and decorative statues for residents to enjoy.
While internally the elegant new apartments in Bracknell feature all the latest appliances and technology, they are surrounded by carefully cultivated gardens that have been sympathetically planted to seem as if they have been tended for decades.
Too often developers take short cuts on landscaping. Hodson Developments, on the other hand, wanted to make sure that the environment around the Fitzroy Collection was as beautiful as the homes themselves, providing a tranquil breathing space for residents and a welcoming home for wildlife.
Every apartment has its own private outdoor space from which to enjoy the views over the Berkshire countryside. The penthouses have spacious, wrap-around terraces; the ground floor apartments have large private patios with feature landscaping; and the homes on floors one to four have generously sized private balconies.
It’s not just the private spaces that make the Fitzroy Collection special, it’s the care that has been taken in landscaping the communal areas, giving the look and feel of being surrounded by a spacious, established garden without having to waste every weekend mowing and digging. According to recent research, access to a garden is seen as one of the top priorities when choosing a new home.
The combination of a low-maintenance private outdoor space and beautifully landscaped communal areas provides owners at the Fitzroy Collection with the perfect solution.
Hodson’s gardeners have certainly been busy digging and planting around The Fitzroy Collection. They have put in 188 Western Red Cedars (Thuja Plicata Martin), 540 laurels and 140 box trees; plants that were carefully chosen to appeal to the senses and provide wildlife habitats.
The red cedars are part of the Cypress family, with lush, evergreen foliage that is mid-green in the summer, becoming tinged with bronze in the winter to provide an attractive seasonal variation. Unlike its much-maligned relative the Lleylandii, the Martin red cedar has slower growth, taking 20 years to reach just six metres, and staying green and healthy on the inside, unlike faster-growing varieties.
Evergreen Laurel is also a feast for the senses, with big, glossy leaves that turn from deep red to vivid green. In the summer it has exotically fragrant creamy flowers, followed by a mass of black berries in autumn.
Not only do buyers at the Fitzroy Collection have the best of both worlds when it comes to outdoor space, the location of the development offers the same mixture of benefits. While the extensive gardens create a sense of tranquillity, the apartments are just a few minutes’ walk from Bracknell mainline train station and the new £250m regenerated town centre with its high-end shopping district The Lexicon, featuring 70 new shops and restaurants including Fenwick, Waitrose and Carluccios, plus a 12-screen Cineworld.
