In a bid to become more sustainable, nearly 30% of car owning households plan to reduce the number of vehicles they run this year, whilst 77% of us are trying to waste less food and 50% are making a conscious effort to save energy at home. Ideal for those looking to make changes to their lifestyle and live greener in 2021, Berkeley Homes is launching a collection of sustainable homes at its new development Hareshill in Crookham Village on Saturday 27th February. Surrounded by the Hampshire countryside, this stylish collection of one to five bedroom homes are available with sustainable interior options to enable residents to switch up their lifestyle and enjoy a more environmentally friendly way of life, in a remarkable new home.
The new properties at Hareshill demonstrate a superior specification with sustainability at the forefront. Off-plan purchasers can choose from four different options of stylish natural timber kitchen cabinetry, available in lighter or darker colourways. The flooring in each home is made from cork, a natural plant fibre that offers a renewable, recyclable and biodegradable option. As extra support to help the environment, the manufacturer will plant a new tree for every natural timber kitchen installed at Hareshill, meaning buyers can kickstart their greener lifestyle without leaving home.
Ben Annetts, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Southern, comments:
“Over the past 12 months, many people have become increasingly aware of the wider environmental impact of our actions and have vowed to take steps to become more sustainable in 2021 and beyond. This includes recycling more, reducing car travel and keeping heating at a lower level at home. At Hareshill, we know many of our buyers are planning to adopt this way of life, and have consciously designed the homes with energy efficient and sustainable features.”
Nestled in the picturesque country village of Crookham, just over a mile from the bustling commuter town of Fleet, Hareshill comprises an attractive new collection of one to five bedroom homes. No matter the size, each property enjoys flexible communal living spaces, luxurious bedrooms and exceptional private outside space, offering the perfect combination of style and practicality. Off-plan purchasers can personalise their property by selecting their choice of kitchen cabinetry and flooring, as well as the finishing touches in the bathroom.
It isn’t just the homes themselves that will assist residents with leading a greener lifestyle. The development features extensive landscaping including native and newly planted trees, ancient woodland, a community green and new wetland pond, which will encourage biodiversity and attract local wildlife. Just a short walk from the development, the 82-acre Edenbrook Country Park delivered by Berkeley is the perfect location for a morning stroll or a family day out, with plenty to keep all members of the family entertained including cycle paths, ponds with dipping platforms, a BMX pump track, community gardens and picnic areas.
