Why Are Private Balconies Important In New Build Homes And How To Enjoy Them

Embrace Your Private Balcony: A World of Benefits Awaits

If you’re fortunate enough to possess a private balcony, seize the opportunity to make the most of it – utilize it frequently! The Gladstone, our haven in NW2, presents an abundance of balcony-equipped homes. Out of the 54 new build homes available, an impressive 52 feature private balconies. These outdoor sanctuaries offer countless advantages, even if it’s just a brief sojourn. Fresh air and sunshine hold the power to uplift your spirits, amplify your vitality, and fortify your immune system, providing you with that much-needed dose of Vitamin D. Moreover, immersing yourself in nature aids in stress reduction and encourages relaxation.

Your Outdoor Retreat: The Private Balcony Experience

Private balconies offer an oasis where you can bask in nature’s embrace without external disruptions. Beyond personal solace, they serve as wonderful venues for entertaining guests and hosting events, ensuring your balcony becomes a cherished retreat. At The Gladstone, we recognize the pivotal role of outdoor spaces when purchasing a new property. In addition to private balconies, we take your experience further with communal gardens and two upstairs communal balconies—one on each side of the development. It’s worth noting that private balconies can also contribute to increasing the overall value of your home, making them an investment in both your lifestyle and future.

We leave below some considerations on how to make the most out of your terrace:


Whether it’s string lights, solar lights, or lanterns, a bit of light can really help to set the mood on your balcony and create an inviting space in the evening. If your balcony is in direct sunlight, you may also want to add a parasol.


Whether it’s a small table and chairs or a lounge chair, having somewhere to relax on your balcony is a must. A small table and chairs can be a good option if you don’t have a lot of space.

A few potted plants or hanging baskets can really transform a space and make it feel more like an oasis.


If you don’t have a lot of space, you may want to consider adding some storage options. A small storage box can be a good option for storing cushions and throws.


Add some cushions, throws, or even outdoor rugs to make your balcony cosier and inviting.
