Bellway Homes has launched a stunning collection of just 25 apartments at The Printworks in Reading after the successful launch of the houses earlier this year. The new homes have been designed with under croft parking, a highly prized amenity in this town centre location. The scheme is situated at the site of former Cox and Wyman, once the largest paperback producer in the UK.

Conveniently located in the Berkshire town of Reading, residents at The Printworks have easy access to the town centre’s amenities, whilst also enjoying the tranquillity of picturesque outdoor spaces both on and off-site. The buzzing  town is set to host Reading Festival this August, with a variety of popular artists including Stormzy, Post Malone and Liam Gallagher.

Occupying a prominent position within Reading, The Printworks comprises an impressive collection of 25,  one, two and three-bedroom apartments just moments away from the banks of the River Thames. Set amongst trees and hedging, these properties are located in an attractive, landscaped development.  Each home has been carefully designed to provide flexible living spaces that demonstrate exceptional craftsmanship.

Emma Jones, Sales Director for Bellway Thames Valley comments: “We are expecting a huge degree of interest in these apartments as the houses that we launched in June have been highly sought after. In keeping with today’s requirements for outside space, these spacious apartments enjoy plenty of room for home working. All feature balconies or terraces, and  residents have access to the development’s communal garden.”

All apartments at The Printworks benefit from spacious open-plan kitchen/living/dining areas that come well equipped with Zanussi integrated appliances. Bathrooms feature elegant wall-tiling, and many two and three-bedroom apartments also enjoy the added luxury of an en-suite bathroom to the master bedroom. All apartments have ample storage space and allocated parking.

The Printworks is ideally situated for convenient access to a variety of retail and leisure facilities.

Residents can enjoy the tranquillity of private outdoor spaces and a communal garden without having to leave the development. However, for those hoping to explore the wider area, Forbury Gardens is just a 19-minute walk away and features peaceful ornamental gardens and bandstands that frequently host music throughout the summer. Reading also enjoys it’s location at the confluence of the River Thames and River Kennet, meaning residents can explore miles of peaceful waterside paths.
