See the outstanding calibre at Brockenhurst House

Millgate Homes is renowned for building exceptional properties to the utmost specification, demonstrated perfectly by the four apartments that remain at its Brockenhurst House development in Ascot.

These apartments, which include two stunning penthouses, both with roof gardens, are now all available for discerning purchasers to view to help showcase exactly what makes living here such a rare opportunity.

Brockenhurst House combines a leafy, suburban location with properties built to a size and specification that brings a whole new dimension to apartment living. And the things that set this flagship development apart from the crowd are evident from the moment you enter the electric gates and are greeted by an imposing façade surrounded by lush, landscaped grounds.

Upon entering the communal entrance hall the theme is one of sheer opulence with mirrors, rich wood details, marble-effect flooring and a sweeping staircase, flanked by statement lighting, combining to lend an air of a classic ocean liner. The feature staircase, with its handcrafted rail and balustrade, and an elevator offer access to the three floors that house just 14 individually appointed two- and three-bedroom apartments.

Upon taking a tour of the apartments, which range in size from 1,200 – 2000 square feet, it becomes evident that no two share the same layout. These homes are as individual as they are spacious. While prospective purchasers get a real choice when it comes to a new home at Brockenhurst House, courtesy of the diversity of the accommodation on offer, Millgate Homes’ meticulous attention to detail is apparent in the specification of every apartment. From outdoor space in the form of private patios, terraces and, in the case of the penthouses, roof gardens, through to beautifully finished kitchens and bathrooms, these properties have been designed to impress the most discerning of buyers.

Bespoke, fitted kitchens are designed by Millgate Homes’ in-house specialist. Cabinets are complemented by stone work surfaces and upstands, alongside a host of appliances that include a five-ring gas hob, electric fan-assisted oven, extractor hood, wine fridge and combination microwave oven, integrated fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher and water softener. Bathrooms and en suites are equally opulent, with crisp, white sanitary ware from the house of Villeroy & Boch, set off to perfection with contemporary chrome furnishings and bespoke fitted vanity units with stone tops.

The attention to detail extends even to the underground parking area, served by the elevator that provides access to all floors of the building. Spaces have been designed to house substantial luxury cars, with each apartment enjoying two dedicated spaces – a rarity that purchasers would be unlikely to find with any other similar properties in the area. Also, with the current cold weather, features like a heated ramp mean that even snow and ice won’t inhibit access.

When you add the Ascot address, it becomes even more apparent why Brockenhurst House has caused such a stir amongst purchasers. Tucked away off Brockenhurst Road, these apartments are perfectly placed to make the most of the town’s boutique stores, smart bars, renowned eateries and, naturally, its world-famous racecourse.

All things considered, it’s little wonder that 10 of the 14 apartments at Brockenhurst House have already sold. Prices for the remaining two-bedroom properties range from £775,000 to £1,250,000.
