A stunning new collection of one and two-bedroom apartments is now available to purchase at Kennet Island, the popular Berkeley Homes development in Reading. Already an established urban community, Kennet Island is set within six acres of open space and offers convenient, modern living for families and professionals, as well as excellent investment opportunities.

Brook Drive is an exclusive collection of just 21 one and two bedroom apartments. Offering bright, open-plan kitchen and living areas and spacious bedrooms, this new collection is the perfect opportunity for first time buyers looking to purchase within this vibrant community. The homes are located in a more secluded area of the development, with select apartments enjoying views across a park.

The Brook Drive apartments will be fitted with the high-quality fixtures and appliances synonymous with the Berkeley brand. With custom-designed kitchens including soft closing doors, laminate worktops and fully-integrated Bosch appliances, elegant Roca sanitary wear and chrome heated towel rails in the bathrooms and 100% low energy down lights throughout, the apartments represent the very best of modern living.

The Kennet Island community benefits from an established infrastructure including a child day care nursery, FIT@KI fitness centre, the Island Lounge licensed café, a convenience store and a private hospital. The neighbouring Hilton Hotel also offers a bar, restaurant, gym and swimming pool.

Kennet Island boasts a prime location close to the M4, the Madejski Stadium and Reading University, with excellent transport links including a dedicated regular bus service to and from the city centre. Commuters benefit from frequent rail services into central London in just 26 minutes and from 2019, the new Crossrail line is projected to serve the capital with high speed links between Reading and East London.

Deana Everingham, Sales and Marketing Director at Berkeley Homes (Western), comments, "We're excited to launch the Brook Drive apartments as they offer a fantastic opportunity for first time buyers and investors to purchase a high-quality property in the centre of Reading before the arrival of Crossrail".

This year, Kennet Island is celebrating ten years of sales at the popular urban community, which launched in 2006 ahead of the property boom and is now 90% sold.

Prices start from £255,000 for a one-bed apartment and £325,000 for a two-bed.
