Ghodbunder Road in Thane is very quickly developing into one of the most coveted residential neighbourhoods in the central suburbs of Mumbai. Many of the major players in real estate development have delivered or announced prime gated communities and luxury towers in this area. Conspicuous among these is the Raunak Group which is developing homes that appeal to wider audience in the middle class, especially the first home buyer. The Group has been part of the real estate landscape in Thane for some time now. One of their biggest projects in Thane is – Unnathi Woods, a sprawling 40 acre township started in 2009 off the Ghodbunder Road.
The first phase of Unnathi Woods was completed in 2012 and over the last seven years Phases 2, 3, 4, 5 and Park View have been completed and a whopping 1,106 homes delivered. In Phase 3 one building is delivered and the other one will be delivered in the next 6 months. Phase 6 is 75% completed. Phase 7 of Unnathi Woods is one of the more sprawling ones in this project. We reviewed some of the salient aspects of this Phase and how it compares vis-a-vis the other Unnathi Woods phases.
Like the other ones, Phase 7 also enjoys the location benefits of being situated five minutes off Ghodbunder Road. By itself this arterial road is home to every possible amenity a potential home buyer could look for. This includes connectivity to other suburbs and main roads in Mumbai. Connecting to the Eastern and Western Expressway is a prime convenience in addition to the proximity to suburban railways, and a reliable bus and public transport system. Malls, convenience stores, hospitals, schools and colleges are all within driving distance and can be quickly and easily accessed.
Unnathi Woods Master plan & Layout
Phase 7 consists of four towers of exclusive one bedroom apartments. Two of the towers – G1 (Stilt + 13 floors) and G2 (Stilt + 17 floors) have been launched and construction of the 1st slab has been completed. Possession of these two towers is expected in December 2020. Prices start at Rs. 47 lakhs. G3 and G4 on the other hand are yet to be launched. All four towers surround the clubhouse and swimming pool, and are bordered by landscaped gardens. Additionally, three of the towers – G1, G2 and G4 directly overlook the Jogger’s Park being developed by Raunak Group and the Thane Municipal Corporation. Most apartments in these towers will enjoy the calming green scenery.
G1 consists of a standard configuration of 575 sq. ft. units while G2 has 2 configurations, 575 and 660 sq. ft. The larger unit in G2 is designed with an ensuite bathroom cum toilet as well as an additional common one. The floor layout of both the towers is similar to a plus sign with almost equidistant arms. At the end of each arm are two apartments, making it eight apartments per floor. The design ensures a sufficiently wide and private passage to each of the two flats at the end of each of the arms. There are two high speed elevators to service each of these towers.
The spacious living cum dining room in all apartments of Unnathi Woods Phase 7 boast a sundeck. Additionally, the bedroom has also been designed to ensure space for a wardrobe. All the apartments have been fitted with modern amenities which include high-end electrical and bath fittings, vitrified tiles, granite kitchen platform, superior quality windows and glass fittings and video door phone.
Phase 7 is the only one in the Unnathi Woods project to boast of its own clubhouse and gym with all modern equipment and amenities as well as swimming pool in addition to landscaped gardens and kids play area. Besides these, residents will also enjoy spacious lobby, and 24 hours security, in addition to the usual spacious parking in the stilt area, solar panels and generator back-ups for lifts water pumps and staircase. Phase 7 is easily accessible via spacious and well maintained internal roads which are part of the Unnathi Woods complex.
While Phase 7 may only be 30% completed till date, it has also seen rapid bookings which stands as a testament to the high demand for quality budget housing in Mumbai suburbs. Unnathi Woods is already home to 1,106 families and many of these families are from typical middle class background, first home buyers who have benefited from Raunak Group’s quality residential developments.
