After a left turn from the main road into one of the busier crosses and a couple of kilometers later, the sight of this residence was like a breath of fresh air.

Banashankari is one of the fastest growing vicinities in South Bangalore, owing it to the connectivity and accessibility to IT hubs. This has consequently lead to the development of civil amenities like schools, hospitals, malls, shopping complex and more.

Popular hospitals around the project include Sri Jayadeva, Devegowda, Utbhab, Sagar. Renowned schools like DPS South, Kumarans, JSS Public School are not more than a 20-minute drive from the project.

Malls and shopping complex in and around the locality include Gopalan Arcade, Gopalan Legacy, BDA complex, Big Bazar and Meenakshi

Getting around the city:

Banashankari extends from Mysore road all the way to Kanakapura road. As a result, any part of the city will be easily accessible from the project. Banashankari is also surrounded by popular areas like Jayanagar, JP Nagar, Basavangudi and Kumaraswamy Layout.

Since the project is a little away from the main road, getting an auto might be difficult. The closest metro station is just 800 meters from the project. Furthermore, taxi services like Ola and Uber are easily available at your door step. So not being able to access an auto shouldn’t be much of a hassle. In addition to this, the project is 9.4 kilometers away from Kempegowda railway station and 46 kilometres from the airport.

Sobha Clovelly- Boutique Living In Banashankari

The largest locality in Bangalore, Banashankari is fast growing into one of the most cosmopolitan and commercially sound localities in South Bangalore. Name a prerequisite to a good residential complex and the area has it- from schools and colleges to bus stops and grocery stores. What further works for the area is the fact that it’s connected to all the major locations of South Bangalore. With all the demands for a home in this part of the city, Sobha launched its project, Sobha Clovelly in the area.

Sobha Clovelly- Major Landmarks

Although debatable, most people consider Banashakari the heart of the ever expanding city. With more office spaces choosing to have their bases in the South, Banashankari’s social infrastructure is not just expanding but thriving.

 

Dayananda Sagar University- Banashankari

Popular educational institutions in the area include RV College of Engineering, Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering, PES University, RV Dental College, BMS College of Engineering and IIM Bangalore. Schools around the project include JSS Public School, DPS South, Kumarans and Carmel.

Popular hospitals include Sri Jayadeva, Devegowda, Sagar and there are specialty clinics peppered around the area. Malls in the area include Gopalan Arcade, Gopalan Legacy, Gopalan Innovation, Meenakshi and Vega City. There are public parks, a major bus stop (Banashankari TTMC) and other centres for fitness and health in the area, all in the proximity of the project.

Sobha Clovelly- Digging Deeper

Sobha Clovelly is located in Padmanabhanagar of Banashankari 3rd stage and is spread over 3.5 acres. The project has been built keeping in mind the green cover of the area and hence Clovelly has a lush green campus. The development offers 137 units of 3 and 4 BHK homes over 21 floors. The style of homes here are categorized under boutique homes. We took a walk around the project and here’s what we thought was interesting.

Sobha Clovelly- The Master Design

The first is the design. Although Sobha has always been known for its design, the design itself varies by project. This particular one boasts of international standards that ensure wide spaces for proper ventilation, designer floors and modern fittings. Large windows let in ample sunlight- keeping up with the needs of good source of air and sunlight into the house as well as appealing design. This aspect of design applies to the number of homes they build as well which are fewer than the regular projects by about a 40:60 ratio.

The second is the amenities we came across as we discussed the project and looked at a model campus. The external ones include an outdoor dining area, a lawn and garden, seating areas, a sculpture garden, pedestrian walkway, outdoor recreational area, barbeque area, senior citizens’ deck and more. Of these, the sport and fitness amenities include a tennis court, a basketball court, children’s play area and a jogging track.

The third are the amenities that fall within the clubhouse, which includes a swimming pool (with a separate kids pool), gymnasium, multi function hall, a party area, a fire access ramp, yoga, meditation and aerobics room.

Indoor amenities don’t stop at the clubhouse, they move into the interiors of a home at Clovelly. These include a drainage and sewage treatment facility, 24 hour power-back up, a granite counter slab in the kitchen, top notch sanitary fittings in the bathroom and large windows that do justice to the sunlight that enters the project. Besides this, 24 hour security along with important devices to assist the same, car parking for visitors and residents, hardscaped driveway, lifts and more ensure that the residents are not left with something to desire or need.

The shade of greens against an under construction Clovelly.

Considering the green cover of the region a few details are added to the project. Clovelly homes stand on a geographical ridge. Infact it’s one of the first things one notices about the project. This gives the project’s homes some stunning views. Seating areas and landscaped gardens around the project further add to the beauty of the project.

The project is set to launch in September 2019 and the price of a home at the project is set to be at Rs 8330 per square feet. If you’re interested in living in the midst of green with the bangalore skylines as the view through your windows, you should consider Sobha Clovelly.
