Buoyant Binfield in Bracknell is just the ticket for families

Meadows Reach

Bracknell Forest, just beyond Surrey, should be on the wish list of Londoners looking to buy quality homes near good schools in the countryside. The latest figures from the Land Registry data confirms it as the most buoyant market in England and Wales, excluding the capital. In the last year this area of Berkshire saw annual price increases of 14.8 per cent, almost exactly twice the national average.

Meadows Reach, located in the family friendly village of Binfield near Bracknell is a new development by Millgate which has seen first-hand the demand for family homes in this part of Berkshire, as 60% of the properties have sold within the first six weeks from when the development launched.

Finished to the highest standards, the set of 18 attractive three and four bedroom homes are perfectly positioned, nestled in a leafy surrounding with mature trees, a running stream and open meadows.

Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, Jonathan Cranley comments: “It’s no surprise that we’ve seen such demand for properties at Meadows Reach. Nestled in this popular mid-sized village, the properties are located near some great schools, local shops and restaurants whilst also open spaces including the Green Flag Award-winning Pope’s Meadow. It’s a winning combination for buyers who want to secure a home in an area that is already proving to be very buoyant.”

“It’s also great for those who still want to commute to the capital, as the journey from Bracknell to Waterloo averages an hour, whilst nearby Twyford will see the introduction of Crossrail in 2018 providing numerous high speed trains to the heart of the City in well under an hour.”

Exceptional attention to detail, coupled with a high specification is what homebuyers can expect at Meadows Reach. All kitchens are designed on an individual basis and incorporate a comprehensive range of floor and wall cabinets complemented with stone work surfaces and up-stands. Integrated Siemens appliances include a fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

The bathroom, cloakroom and en-suites are equipped with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware with contemporary chrome furnishings. Typical of Millgate, buyers can expect gardens to the front and rear which are laid to lawn with quality seen grown turf including areas of planting.

With Windsor, Ascot and Reading within easy distance and the town of Bracknell just minutes away, Meadows Reach is well positioned to make the most of the wide range of local amenities.

Bracknell itself is currently undergoing a major regeneration programme amounting to £750m which has already seen the arrival of a new innovative Waitrose superstore. There are ambitious plans for the striking new town centre with a cinema, major retailers and a host of culinary delights, including a Fenwick and Carluccios.

Residents are suitably located for a wide choice of pre-school nurseries, primary schools, secondary schools and colleges of all educational levels. Within close proximity is the highly regarded Ranelagh Church of England Academy, a thriving centre for academic excellence.

Binfield may have a country village ambience but is not far outside the M25 and only 35 miles from central London. Residents can benefit from two railway stations, Bracknell and Martins Heron, both of which are on the Waterloo to Reading line.

The three bedroom properties have now all sold, prices for the four bedroom properties start from £699,950. For more information, visit
