School Pupil Opens New Show Home At Overton Development

Posted 26 September 2023 by Helen Christie

An eight-year-old primary school pupil has launched Bewley Homes’ new show home at its Sovereign Gate development in Overton…

WhatHouse? Award-winning developer Bewley Homes has launched its highly anticipated show home at its Sovereign Gate development in Overton.

Cerys Luckhurst, a pupil from Overton CE Primary school, had the honour of officially opening the four-bedroom show home at Sovereign Gate, having won an interior design competition organised by Bewley Homes earlier in the year.

Cerys’ creativity and imagination earned her the top spot in the competition. Her vibrant and imaginative vision has now been brought to life in one of the children’s bedrooms of the new show home, serving as an inspiration for potential buyers who visit the property.

Bewley, renowned for its commitment to innovative design, held the competition to engage with the local primary school.

Cerys' design, brought to life by PJB Interiors, Bewley’s interior design company, transformed one of the children's bedrooms into a jungle theme. The room exudes a sense of imagination and possibility, capturing the essence of Cerys's youthful spirit and creative vision.

Cerys says: “I can't believe that my design is actually here in the show home! It's like a dream come true. I love colours and magic, and I wanted to create a design that feels like you're in a fairy tale jungle. I hope all the children who visit this room feel as happy as I do. I really enjoyed launching the show home. It’s the first one I have been to and it’s beautiful.”

Elaine Stratford, sales and marketing director at Bewley Homes, says: "Cerys's design not only captured the essence of childhood wonder but also resonated with the ethos of the Overton development – ‘a place where families can create lasting memories and build their dreams’. Her enthusiasm and boundless creativity are a testament to the magic that young minds can conjure. We're thrilled to have had her collaborate with us and share her imagination.”

Bewley is building its high-quality Garden Village Collection consisting of an impressive collection of 82 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes which are appealing to first-time buyers, growing families and downsizers.

With 10 sales already taken off-plan, demand for the new development has been high and Bewley is expecting more sales interest now the show home is ready to view.

Elaine adds: “As you would expect, given its location, Sovereign Gate has received considerable interest since we started building and we are now delighted to be open for prospective buyers for the first time to see the quality of a Bewley development. We have designed the Garden Village Collection to encapsulate the ‘wow’ factor to create beautiful street scenes. Our Bewley Bond service enables customers to reserve even when they have a house to sell, so it is well worth making contact and viewing the show home. Sovereign Gate is truly in a stunning location which will give buyers the best of both worlds. Living so close to nature with stunning countryside on the doorstep is priceless and being near to the centre of a quintessential English village, with a train station to London, has huge appeal for commuters.”

Overton is an impressive village minutes from the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasts a wide range of amenities including a primary school with an Outstanding Ofsted report, country pubs, leisure facilities and local shops. For commuters, the railway station is close by with train services to London taking less than an hour.
