Kolte-Patil Stargaze, Bavdhan – An Overview

Kolte Patil’s Stargaze at Bavdhan is an upcoming residential project that offers to provide its residents a comfortable lifestyle amidst serene surroundings, much in departure from the hectic life most professionals live today. People are spending most of their day slogging away at work and surrounded by numerous communication gadgets, which add convenience but increase disturbance. In order to maintain a healthy work-life balance, it is essential to detach from the routine and take regular vacations. Unfortunately, doing so is not easy, with time at a premium and the effort needed for planning a break being quite off-putting. A solution is if one’s home itself provides all that is needed to recharge a human body and spirit. This is the vision behind Stargaze, Bavdhan.

Kolte-Patil boasts of a number of prestigious projects delivered at Pune. In recent times, their focus has been on Pune’s upcoming suburbs, which account for most of the new residential demand. Bavdhan in western Pune, which is the location for Stargaze, is one such area. We recently visited the site of Stargaze to examine the project and take a look at what it has to offer.

Location & Connectivity

In order to reach Stargaze, one needs to get on to Paud Road from Chandani Chowk and proceed towards Pirangut. One must follow the road, till a property signboard pointing towards the right. Take this road and after a short distance, one arrives at the site. In order to get a true picture of the project, a visit to the sales office followed by a site visit is a must.

What strikes you immediately about the site is how well located it is. Bavdhan is a central location for software personnel working in the nearby IT hubs of Hinjewadi or Baner and for executives working in the nearby industrial hubs of Kothrud, Pirangut or even Pimpri Chinchwad, who are looking for both comfort and convenience. Public transport through buses connects Bavdhan to areas such as Pune Railway Station, Kothrud and Pune University. Stargaze’s proximity to the Mumbai-Bangalore NH4 at Chandani Chowk is another positive, attracting investors from cities such as Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Satara. The Oracle Financial Services campus is right across the road from Stargaze.

Stargaze is located among lush green hills in Bavdhan and is an excellent vantage point to view the lovely hills on one side and the city on the other (not to speak about the stars at night!). Being at a height, the temperature too is lower than that of the city. It gives one the impression of living in a resort in a hill station, rather than a home, a point which is further reinforced by the design of the project and the amenities on offer, which are explained later.

Social Conveniences

Bavdhan and its neighbouring areas of Kothrud and Pashan boast of well-known schools in close proximity to Stargaze, offering plenty of choice in board of education such as Ryan International School (ICSE), Suryadatta School (CBSE), St. Joseph’s High School (State Board) and Periwinkle English Medium School (State Board). If one seeks quality medical care, they can choose from among Om Hospital, Sahyadri Hospital and Lodha Hospital in the neighbourhood.

A number of top class restaurants such as Ambrosia Resort, Banjara Hills, Garden Court etc. are located around Chandani Chowk, within a very short distance from Stargaze. Neighbouring Kothrud and Pashan boast of a number of supermarkets, while there is also Aditya Shagun Mall in Bavdhan to meet residents’ shopping needs.

Overview of the project

Spread over an 18 acre land parcel overlooking NH4 and the surrounding hills, Stargaze has been planned as a home cum vacation resort, with 50% area dedicated to amenities and landscaped public spaces, to enable greater social interaction among residents. This is a major distinguishing feature at not just Stargaze, but many of Kolte-Patil’s projects, as today’s home owners demand a living amidst lively community.

Stargaze is planned to come up in two phases. Phase 1 comprises of 6 residential towers named A to F, which is targeted to be completed and handed over by the end of 2017 and forms the focus of this note. Phase 2 will have 5 more towers that will be developed subsequently.

The 6 towers in Phase 1, which are currently under construction, will have 14 residential levels, above 2 levels for parking. Towers A and B have exclusively 2 BHK residences. Tower A has 8 apartments per floor, while tower B has 10 per floor.

In contrast, towers C, D, E and F have both 2 BHK and 3 BHK residences, with two of each configuration on every floor. The base price of apartments in these towers is Rs. 6600/sq. ft., while the corresponding figure for towers A and B is Rs. 6400/sq. ft. One can purchase a 2 BHK apartment for prices starting from ~Rs. 83 lakh, while the starting price for a 3 BHK apartment would be ~Rs. 1.21 crore.

A home @ Stargaze

When it comes to the homes in Stargaze, Bavdhan, what stands out is their excellent design. As an example, let’s focus on the apartments in blocks C to F. Each of the four apartments on the same floor is located along a corner and is connected by large lobbies to each other and the lifts and staircases. This feature (called as four-to-a-core) ensures that these homes are open from three sides and the large terraces offer excellent views of the surroundings, without any obstructions. This also maintains the privacy of residents, while allowing for plenty of natural light and cross-ventilation in the home, creating a lively atmosphere and bringing down the need for using electrical appliances at all times.

Further adding to the elegant look of a home is the usage of large 800 X 800 vitrified tiles in the living room. The large attached terrace to the living room (and master bedroom for 3 BHK apartments) has a lovely glass railing with a steel handrail. The master bedroom is provided with wooden flooring and all bedrooms have 3 track french windows. The bathrooms come with the ceramic tile flooring and European chrome plated fittings.

Amenities

The top class design is not limited to the apartments alone, but extends to the vast common areas, which house the various amenities. The project will have landscaped areas and gardens, which would serve as places for relaxation and social interaction. These include the aroma garden, herb garden, lawn, mini amphitheatre and stepped garden among others. Kids will have separate play areas.

For sports lovers, the amenities are aplenty, with a mini golf course, rock climbing wall, tennis court, cricket net and skating ring some of the options to choose from. The large clubhouse would host indoor game facilities, besides multilevel water bodies, comprising of a cascade, kids’ pool and a swimming pool with a vanishing edge. All these amenities will be conveniently located from all towers.

Conclusion

Kolte Patil’s Stargaze, Bavdhan promises to offer residents a clean pollution free environment, privacy and active community, aimed at providing people much-needed refuge and relaxation at home. The developer’s design, planning and execution till date appear quite promising. Prospective residents have plenty to look forward to, including but not restricted to gazing up at the beautiful night sky, as the name suggests!
