Experience flexible living at Bankside Gardens
Chic lakeside apartments, with five-star amenities and new train station coming to Reading.
For buyers looking for homes to suit their new lifestyles post-lockdown – complete with open green space and flexible solutions for homeworking and commuting – Bankside Gardens delivers on all fronts. This collection of 461 stylish one and two-bedroom lakeside apartments forms part of St Edward’s landmark Green Park Village development in Reading. Residents will benefit from hotel-style amenities – including a co-working studio – beautiful landscaped parkland and a picturesque lake, as well as excellent city connections from the new Green Park train station, due for delivery later this year. What’s more, prices start from just £292,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, providing incredible value for money.
The new apartments are arranged across seven striking buildings which are located on the banks of Longwater Lake and have been positioned around attractive landscaped grounds, affording many residents fabulous garden or lakeside views.
Commercial space, including shops and cafés, will be located on the ground floor of the buildings, making Bankside Gardens not just a great place in which residents can relax but a great draw for the wider community too.
The one and two-bedroom apartments have been designed for flexible, open-plan living. The kitchens feature composite stone worktops, contrasting timber and black matt finishes and come complete with the latest Bosch appliances. The main bedrooms feature fitted wardrobes while the bathrooms are sleek and modern with Vitra ceramic basins and matching black chrome fixtures and fittings by VADO.
The amenities deliver the ultimate in luxury and convenience for busy residents; a concierge service is on hand to help with day-to-day jobs like taking in parcels, a co-working studio is ideal for anyone required to work from home and the cinema room provides the perfect space to enjoy a box set or sporting event.
Residents can work out in the gym, or take to the acres of surrounding parkland for a run or stroll. The gardens provide another place where residents and the community can relax and unwind. Residents of Bankside Gardens will also benefit from the facilities within Green Park Village, located across the lake, which will be home to a Market Square, café, crèche, a new primary school and a village hall.
