The latest Lloyds Bank Second Steppers report has identified that the top three 'must haves' for Second Steppers when choosing a new home are a driveway, garden and open plan kitchen/diner.
Unsurprisingly, the most common reason Second Steppers consider a move is due to their current property being too small (64%); location is the next most important element (27%); followed by the need to accommodate a growing family (32%); being close to a good performing school (20%); looking for a more 'long-term' home (15%) and more garden space (10%).
The Newport Collection is latest phase of homes to be released at Green Park Village - offering many of the key priorities identified in this latest Lloyds Bank report. Boasting one of the best locations on the development, these stunning four bedroom properties are situated moments from the lake, close to woodland walks, the trim trail and children's play area.
These generously proportioned homes feature high specification fixtures and fittings with spacious, flexible accommodation spread across 3 floors. The ground floor includes underfloor heating with an elegant open plan kitchen/dining room complemented by a full range of integrated Bosch appliances; with a separate family room, utility and downstairs cloakroom. The first floor provides a further living room with a balcony, plus a master bedroom with ensuite and 'his and hers' wardrobes. On the top floor there are 3 further bedrooms including a guest room with ensuite, plus family bathroom - all complete with Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware.
Outside there is a driveway for one car and a garden which comes complete with a patio and grass.
Green Park Village is Reading's first New England inspired lakeside development just 3 miles from central Reading. Set across 60 acres surrounded by green open space, it offers an idyllic location for Second Steppers aspiring to a family home in a growing community. A market square is being created at the heart of the village, with lakeside paths, nature walks, trim trails for all to enjoy. A new primary school is being built on site and funding has just been approved by Reading
Borough Council for a new railway station that will offer direct rail access to Reading. Direct trains to Paddington will be reduced to just 26 minutes from end of 2019, when the new Crossrail line opens.
