Regularly voted as one of the best places to work in the UK – it is clear to see why Reading is in such high demand. This well-planned town is an increasing hub of service sector job opportunities, with titans of the industry Microsoft and The Oracle having their UK headquarters in the area. Combined with its growing selection of good schools and excellent transport links, Reading has secured itself as a prime spot for homebuyers. The town centre offers residents an excellent place to reside with a fabulous work/life balance but homes close to the heart of town are becoming increasingly hard to find.

Based in central Reading, close to the mainline train station,  The Printworks is an impressive collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom properties from five-star housebuilder, Bellway. Enjoying a prime position on Cardiff Road, The Printworks comprises a collection of contemporary apartments and houses set on an historic location dating back to 1777 that was once home to local printing house Cox and Wyman.

Emma Jones, Sales Director for Bellway Thames Valley comments: “Homes are becoming an increasingly rare commodity in central Reading.  The Printworks is perfectly situated for buyers that want the buzz of being close to the centre of town and I urge potential buyers to act now to secure one of these popular properties. With a selection of apartments and a variety of three-bedroom houses still available, home hunters will struggle to find a better opportunity to live in an area that has so much to offer, as well as fantastic connectivity links to London and the home counties”

The impressive homes are enhanced with attractive landscaping and include an accessible play area, ideal for residents with children. A total of 121 parking spaces have been included in the scheme and many of the three-bedroom homes come with parking for two cars. Designed with sustainability in mind several electric car charging points are available, and a car club scheme will ensure that residents who don’t own a car are still mobile.

Each property includes an open plan kitchen and dining area, a spacious living room and plenty of storage options. An integrated Zanussi oven, Roca sanitaryware and a generous balcony contribute to the stylish and contemporary aesthetic of the homes.

The Printworks proximity to Reading town centre offers both convenience and choice with plenty of fantastic shopping, dining and leisure options available. High street stores, well-known restaurants (including the Michelin-starred L’Ortolan) and artisan bakeries are all on the doorstep. Less than five miles away, a conservation centre known as ‘The Living Rainforest’ houses more than 850 species of animals and plants. Ideal for a family day out – this is just one of the very many places of interest in the surrounding area.

Convenient connections should also be considered. The A33, which connects to the M4 for London, is close and Reading railway station is a short walk from home providing regular services to Oxford, London and Manchester.

Prices at The Printworks are starting from £270,00 for a one-bedroom apartment and from £532,000 for a three-bedroom house. For further information about this fabulous development please call Bellway Homes.
