Located in the highly sought-after city of Gurugram, The Camellias sets a new standard for sustainable luxury living. DLF, India’s leading property developer, has created one of the most exciting and coveted residential addresses in the country.

By bringing the concept of super-luxury condominium living to India – something that has proved to be incredibly popular in the US – DLF has created an exceptional living and working space in this new city, redefining not only the way real estate looks at luxury, but also how luxury looks at real estate. If this wasn’t enough, it is also the first residential development in the country to have LEED Platinum certification.

An interesting real estate listing and a rare opportunity allowing you to create a home that fits your specific needs, properties at The Camellias come as a shell. The apartments and penthouses are located within nine towers and range from approximately 7,350 sq ft to 16,290 sq ft.

Built on a design structure allowing future owners full freedom to customize the layout and interiors as per their tastes and exact specifications, no two apartments will be the same. The wet points and exterior areas such as balconies are defined, but you create your floorplan, designing and decorating as you prefer. Overlooking 200 acres of the DLF Gold & Country Club and the Aravali forests beyond, each residence has breathtaking views.

Those who decide to purchase one of these incredible homes will have access to The Camellias Club: One of the largest wellbeing and leisure residential facilities in the world. Centered around holistic wellness, it’s a communal experience injecting a sense of connectedness into the otherwise large and spread-out complex. Comprising seven ‘energy zones’, the 160,000 sq ft space provides ample amenities to unwind: A fitness center, multiple restaurants, a spa, performance hall, and bowling alley to name but a few.

While each residence has balconies to enjoy the fresh air and views, there is an expansive landscape surrounding the towers. A water garden, orchard, sculpture garden, and amphitheater are just a few of the spaces in which homeowners can maintain a connection with the natural world – something that is at the heart of this project.

From the outset, sustainability has been a guiding principle at The Camellias. As well as being LEED Platinum certified, DLF is the only Indian real estate company listed on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. This careful and considered approach is evident throughout the development: solar panels are used to reduce energy consumption, all green areas – including the golf course – are irrigated by recycled treated water, and over 100 mature trees (which were due to be felled in other parts of the city) were transplanted to its grounds.
