Kennet Island, the Berkeley Homes development in Reading, is set to launch the final collection of houses to be built within the established urban community. The competitively priced selection of beautiful three and four bedroom homes, all featuring gardens, are being released on the 24th September and will be available to purchase off-plan. Also at the launch, the new show apartment will be unveiled which will demonstrate the quality of the fixtures and fittings of both the houses and apartments at Kennet Island.
Located just three miles from Reading town centre and set within landscaped open space, Kennet Island offers contemporary living with an array of amenities. Already an established community, the development is based around a central piazza, with a gym, licensed café, nursery and convenience store. Residents benefit from having the Hilton Hotel with its swimming pool, spar, bar and restaurant on their doorstep as well as a private hospital.
The 20 new homes in Brook Drive are the first collection of houses to go on sale in Kennet Island since 2014, and represent a rare opportunity to purchase a new-build house so close to the town centre. Featuring a range of designs and floor-plans, Brook Drive offers buyers the opportunity to choose a layout that best suits their lifestyle. Several of the homes feature contemporary open-plan kitchen and living spaces, while others have separate family rooms and kitchen/dining areas, and there are both two and three storey properties available. A few of the larger houses have two ensuite bedrooms, ideal for larger families or older children, and many of the houses offer two living areas. On top of this, the four bedroom houses are located opposite the large open parkland, providing views of the park.
The interiors include the same exceptional quality expected from the Berkeley brand. Kitchens have a stylish and contemporary design, with fully-integrated Bosch appliances and white goods, designer chrome polished mixer taps, laminate worktops and stainless steel bowls with mobile drainer. Bathrooms are fitted with elegant white sanitaryware and chrome finishings including a heated towel rail and VADO mixer shower, while bedrooms feature carpeting and sophisticated mirrored wardrobes to the master suite. Also, with fibre optic broadband available at Kennet Island, purchasers have the option of internet access as soon as they move in.
Designed for sustainability, all properties are fitted with a SMART energy meter, integrated recycling bins as well as 100% low energy lighting.
Deana Everingham, Head of Sales & Marketing at Berkeley Homes (Western), comments, "This is the last collection of houses to be built in Kennet Island, and therefore the final opportunity for families' and investors looking for larger homes in the area to buy in this vibrant community".
Buyers who purchase one of the houses currently have the opportunity to personalise their tile and kitchen choices.
Direct trains from Reading to Paddington take just 26 minutes, making the community an ideal location for commuters. Homes at Kennet Island are also set to benefit from the Crossrail line, which is projected to complete in 2019 offering fast trains in to the capital as well as a wider network of services across the South East.
Prices start from £380,000 for a 3-bed house and £445,000 for a 4-bed house.
