Experience modern waterside living in Reading, Berkshire
New apartments with 5* facilities available to buy at Bankside Gardens by St Edward
Living close to water and nature doesn’t just provide a beautiful scenic setting, but – as many of us have learned this year – mental wellbeing and physical health benefits too. So if that’s made you want to have your next home in closer proximity to nature, the new collection of one and two-bedroom apartments at Bankside Gardens in Reading is situated next to Longwater Lake, with many homes offering stunning views over the water and landscaped gardens beyond.
In addition to the tranquil setting, the homes at Bankside Gardens deliver the ultimate for those still wanting to work all or part of their week from home but without sacrificing an easy commute when needed; residents benefit from hotel-style amenities – including a co-working studio – as well as excellent connections from the new Green Park train station, due for delivery next year. What’s more, prices start from just £280,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.
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 both live and 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 include a concierge service, a co-working studio which is ideal for anyone required to work from home and a cinema room which provides the perfect space to enjoy a box set, a movie or sporting event.
Residents can work out in their exclusive gym, or take to the acres of surrounding parkland for a run or stroll. The gardens provide another place where residents and the wider community can relax and unwind. In addition, there are further amenities at Green Park Village, located just across the lake, a few minutes’ walk away which will be home to a Market Square, café, crèche, a new primary school and a village hall.
The new Green Park railway station next to Bankside Gardens will make travel, when required, extremely easy; services will reach Reading Station in just six minutes. Reading station can already be reached in 10 minutes by car and services to London Paddington take as little as 23 minutes. When Crossrail opens at the end of the year, direct services will reach Heathrow in 38 minutes, Bond Street in under an hour and Canary Wharf in just over an hour.
Reading town centre is one of the most dynamic and eclectic entertainment destinations in the South East and is home to a range of restaurants, bars and famous high street names and department stores, as well as independent hidden gems.
