• Berkeley Homes Launches Exclusive Development in Capital of Thames Valley

    8 October 2019

    (4 October 2019, Hong Kong) Berkeley Homes is launching a brand-new development in the capital of the Thames Valley.  Boasting a prime town centre location, overlooking the River Kennet, this expansive new collection of high specification homes is set to change the Reading property landscape.

    Huntley Wharf is one of the UK’s most exciting residential investment opportunities – the prime south facing riverside setting is just a few minutes’ walk from Reading station, and many of the new homes will feature a balcony or terrace to maximise the south facing aspect and riverside views.

    This exceptional new range of high specification 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments will be enhanced by a host of proposed amenities including a restaurant, coffee shop, convenience store, day nursery, concierge, resident’s gym, Riverside Square, Riverside Walk and co-working studio.

    Living and working in Reading brings with it many of the benefits of the big city experience but without the drawbacks, and with the added advantages of beautiful countryside and the majestic River Thames on its doorstep.


    Superb investment opportunity

    Huntley Wharf offers a truly impressive opportunity for the smart investor. Set in nearly 7 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds, the development will offer over 700 homes in three main buildings. It is set at the heart of a town undergoing rapid transformation, attracting investment by global companies and ranked in the top 25 most attractive European cities for direct foreign investment.  Reading is a prime example of a buoyant market where property prices have been steadily rising over the last 10 years. It has the highest concentration of digital businesses in the UK, and following the structural growth in technology, Reading is well placed for long term growth opportunities.


    Reading – Capital of the Thames Valley

    Recent accolades for Reading include: ‘Best Town/City’ at the Thames Valley Property Awards May ’19 and ‘The Best Place to live in the UK for First Time Buyers’ in the Sunday Times report last month – further cementing Reading’s prominence on the UK property landscape. Key factors which have sparked these accolades and further increased property prices include the evolution of The Oracle shopping centre, the £900m Station upgrade and the announcement of Crossrail.


    Buoyant Property Market

    Mandy Wong, Head of International Residential at JLL, comments “Property values in Reading have experienced consistent growth over the last decade, with town centre apartments rising in value by 75% over the last five years. With Crossrail now imminent and talks of a new fast, direct rail link to Heathrow, we believe that real estate in Reading will continue to offer a solid investment proposition.”

    Matthew Biddle, Managing Director, Berkeley Homes (Western), comments: “Reading has so much to offer residents, employers and investors alike: the UK’s largest tech cluster; home to 13 of the world’s top 30 global brands; excellent employment opportunities with the highest wages in the UK outside of London; superb transport connections; outstanding education; to name but a few.”


    The Location

    Reading is located 40 miles west of central London and 30 miles from Heathrow Airport. Huntley Wharf is just 0.7 miles from Reading Central Station, and to get from Reading to London Paddington takes under 30 minutes. The imminent Crossrail will allow commuters to travel to London Bond Street in 54 minutes; Canary Wharf in 68 minutes.
