The pandemic has made people realise the importance of outside space. It provides people with a space to connect with nature, think and relax. A recent survey revealed that 64% of homebuyers wouldn’t purchase a new home if it has no outside space. Additionally, 30% said that outdoor space was more important than the inside of their property. Berkeley has taken this survey on board and is offering a bespoke balcony package with each of their apartments at their new development – The Paperyard. Buyers will also benefit from their furniture being sourced and installed by award-winning interior designer, Jigsaw Box.
Bespoke Balcony Packages
There will be three bespoke balcony packages for buyers to pick from and they are all centered around different themes – contemporary, cosy or gardening. The gardening package is great for those who want to be able to enjoy tending to a vegetable patch and will include a greenhouse, potting station, accessories, a sleeping bench, and a selection of large planters. The cosy package instead features a comfortable outdoor sofa, cushions, blankets, solar fairy lights, and hanging planters. The contemporary package is good for those who plan on entertaining guests, as it boasts a drinks trolley station, trough planters, and stylish outdoor furniture.
For those interested in purchasing one of the apartments available and benefiting from the balcony package, Berkeley has installed example packages on three balconies at the development, and they are available to view by appointment now.
Ben Annetts, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Southern, comments:
“With more buyers eager for extra space and an effortless lifestyle of outdoor living, we are pleased to be able to satisfy purchaser’s demands with our stunning new balcony packages at The Paperyard. Although there is no obligation, purchasers will be able to choose a package to suit their personal lifestyle, whether that means growing their own fruit and veg at home, unwinding with a good book in the evening, or enjoying entertaining friends and family again. Close to the high street, excellent commuter links and moments from great restaurants, the homes at The Paperyard are brilliant for buyers wanting to own their own space with everything on the doorstep, and we’re pleased to be working with such a renowned interior designer, Jigsaw Box, to offer this fantastic incentive.”
The Paperyard is set within the sought-after town of Horsham and comprises spacious one and two-bedroom apartments. Each property benefits from a balcony or terrace and it was important for Berkeley to create homes that centered around functional outdoor spaces. The outdoor spaces also connect seamlessly with the indoor spaces, and the open-plan kitchen/living/dining space flows into the balcony/terrace via large French doors. Kitchens feature integrated appliances by NEFF and a choice of door and composite stone worktop finishes with tiled splashback. Bathrooms are large in size and offer contemporary white sanitaryware and chrome taps. Additionally, residents will have exclusive access to the landscaped rooftop garden, which provides a tranquil place to unwind.
Those who love the outdoors will be at home at The Paperyard, as it has plenty of beautiful green spaces to enjoy. Green Flag accredited Horsham Park is a short stroll away from the development and features wide open spaces, a tranquil sensory garden, activity centres and The Kaya Café. Further afield, the South Downs and High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty offer residents a place to explore acres of pathways, woodland and open space.
The local area is quaint and offers residents the chance to enjoy idyllic town centre living. There are also a variety of great shops to enjoy, including high-street brands and independent shops. Horsham town centre has an abundance of bars, pubs and restaurants to explore, such as Bill’s Horsham Restaurant, The Black Jug, and Lemongrass.
