Final Chances At Reading Riverside Development

Posted 18 February 2022 by Keith Osborne

Berkeley has only three one-bedroom homes still for sale at Huntley Wharf, alongside the River Kennet...

Berkeley, a frequent winner of prestigious WhatHouse? Awards, has reported that just three apartments remain for sale at its prestigious Huntley Wharf riverside scheme, located in the heart of Reading town centre.

Offering ‘London style’ living just 10 minutes’ walk from the station, Huntley Wharf has proved a popular choice with a wide range of purchasers willing to buy off-plan, and with investors recognising the potential capital growth opportunities in Reading.

Reading is among the first UK cities to bounce back from the impact of the global pandemic, according to two recent independent reports. The 2022 Centre for Cities Monitor report of the UK’s largest 64 cities published in January 2022 cites Reading’s affluence is a key factor in its quick return to strong economic performance, while EY’s latest Regional Economic Forecast (31 January 2022) assesses Reading to have made the fastest economic recovery from the pandemic so far, with local productivity already 4% above its 2019 level.

Huntley Wharf features high specification apartments amongst landscaped open spaces. Set around a new riverside square and riverside walk, it will regenerate a stretch of the River Kennet and create a new public space for the wider community to enjoy. Residents will have exclusive access to a concierge, co-working studio and private podium gardens, along with a host of proposed amenities including a day nursery, convenience store, riverside restaurant and gym.

The final remaining apartments – all one-bedroom properties – are located in Discovery House South and Discovery House West, near to the Podium Gardens. Each home features a spacious, open-plan kitchen/living/dining area, with the bedroom complete with a fitted wardrobe, plus a bathroom, and dedicated utility cupboard in the hallway.

Huntley WharfBen Ivey, sales & marketing director, Berkeley Homes Oxford & Chilterns, commented: “We are delighted with how quickly the properties at Huntley Wharf have sold. In spite of the pandemic, the build programme has remained on track and the sales have been consistent, with many investors recognising the capital growth potential of investing in such a strong economic hub”.

Nigel Horton-Baker, executive director at Reading UK, explained: “Reading’s economic profile has been at the heart of its success for many decades. The reasons that have historically made it attractive to investors and businesses are the same reasons it has proved resilient in this latest global crisis; our dynamic mix of businesses, particularly in the knowledge economy, skilled workforce, high salaries, superb transport links and a great lifestyle. Reading has shown itself to be one of Europe’s most resilient cities during previous global economic downturns and is already among the strongest performers in the early post-pandemic phase.”

A show apartment is available for viewing at the Sales & Marketing Suite and showcases the high-quality fixtures and fittings available. Contemporary kitchens with lacquered finished Shaker-style doors, plus glazed crackle-effect tiled splashbacks, are available in a choice of colour palettes; complemented by compact stone worktops and a range of integrated Bosch appliances.

The bathrooms also feature a choice of glazed crackle-effect feature tiles, chrome mixer taps with industrial knurling detail, plus contemporary matt black feature accents such as black-framed glass shower doors. The spacious bedrooms are fully carpeted; the main bedrooms feature soft grey Shaker-style wardrobe doors; and Karndean timber-effect flooring is included in the kitchen, dining, living area and hallway.
