House prices in Reading have consistently risen over the past 25 years according to recent Land Registry figures, yet this Berkshire town remains extremely affordable compared to surrounding towns.  Lying just to the west of central Reading is a contemporary new scheme by Bellway Homes.  On August 22nd Bellway is launching a new show apartment at Renaissance which showcases the exceptional space and detailed finishes that residents will enjoy.

Complete with neutral flooring, opaque curtains and striking light fittings the show apartment has been designed to highlight the fabulous space that residents will benefit from living at Renaissance.   The main kitchen/living room of the apartment is flooded with light through the impressive floor to ceiling windows and the kitchen has been designed using high-quality products.   To reflect modern day living the apartment has been staged with a desk area which is now an essential way of life.

Emma Jones, Sales and Marketing Director at Bellway Thames Valley, comments: “We have been surprised at the speed that we sold the family homes at Renaissance, it certainly highlights the appetite that buyers have to live in a property hot spot with easy access to the city centre.  The regeneration of Reading is ongoing and with the arrival of Crossrail, house prices are likely to continue in their upward trajectory. 

“We have seen a great deal of interest from people that are keen to move out of London but still want to access the Capital quickly.  Commuters can reach London Paddington in as little as 24 minutes from Reading and when Crossrail opens this will create even more travel options.  Help to Buy is available on all of our new apartments and with the current stamp duty holiday these homes are very attractive for buyers.”

The show apartment features an open plan kitchen and living area, a family bathroom including a modern shower/bath combination, added storage to the main hallway and two generous sized bedrooms which effortlessly fit double beds. Bedroom one benefits from built-in cupboards and en suite facilities which are still a much-needed luxury for most purchasers.

Reading town centre is set attractively along the River Thames and the town has been undergoing a huge regeneration project over the past few years.  These major upgrades are making the metropolis a hot spot for people wanting to live outside London but still requiring excellent transport links into the city and Oxford. 

Reading is also known for its commerce and was named the third best city in the UK for digital technology in 2019.  The area is home to many large business parks and there are several major global companies in the town including Hewlett Packard, Microsoft and Sanofi.

Reading benefits from an abundant number of shops, both high street and boutique.  The choice of restaurants in town is extensive and covers all budgets and tastes, even boasting a Michelin Star restaurant – L’Ortolan. Reading is also a popular university town and the Uni is located close to Renaissance, making it an ideal location for employees and students alike.

Apartment prices at Renaissance start from £227,500 through to £317,500.  For further information, please visit or call 0118 217 6914.
