Contemporary Urban Living In Slough

Posted 27 January 2023 by Helen Christie

10 reasons why you should consider buying a home at Berkeley’s Horlicks Quarter in Slough…

The iconic Horlicks Factory has been Slough’s most recognised and loved icon since it opened in 1908. For more than a century, the world-famous malted milk drink, Horlicks, was manufactured here and shipped around the world.

Berkeley is transforming the site into a collection of one-, two- and three-bedroom new and refurbished apartments, with a range of excellent amenities for residents and the local community to enjoy.

Here are ten reasons why you should consider buying at Horlicks Quarter:

1. Buy a piece of history:  An opportunity to live in a unique apartment in the original factory building. A large glass atrium floods the building with light, with dual aspect apartments on each floor opening onto feature floating walkways that overlook magnificent internal gardens below.

2. Impressive view: An internal glass elevator will enable you to enjoy the sunken gardens as you travel up to the magnificent roof garden - which affords panoramic views towards Windsor Castle.

3. Plenty of residents facilities: A superb range of residents’ facilities are being created within the factory building, including a games room, concierge facility, fitness centre, cinema and a large, well-appointed space for co-working or relaxing. An on-site café and day nursery are planned, with a central piazza for open-air community activities.

4. Communal gardens: Berkeley has created beautiful gardens incorporating a central lawn area enhanced by plants, shrubs and trees, as well as calming water features, creating areas for everyone to enjoy – be it for relaxation or socialising with neighbours.

5. Investment opportunity: Slough is undergoing a period of change – a chance to buy a new home in an ‘up and coming area’. Plans are in place to regenerate the main shopping centre, plus the Elizabeth Line is now open - are helping to transform the town.

6. Great transport links: London Paddington is just 15 mins away by train and Windsor 6 mins. The new Crossrail service – links Slough directly to Bond Street and Canary Wharf

7. Green spaces: Slough is one of the UK’s greenest towns - with 254 hectares of open space, including nine parks. One is Herschel Park and nature reserve, restored to its Victorian splendour with £2.7m of funding, and awarded Green Flag status.

8. A taste of Hollywood on your doorstep - the world-famous Pinewood Studios is on the outskirts of Slough. Over its 85-year history, the movies made include 007s, Harry Potter, Bridget Jones and Star Wars.

9. Education: Slough offers a superb collection of grammar and secondary schools: Eden Girls’ School, Herschel Grammar, Langley Grammar, Slough & Eton C of E Business and Enterprise College, St Bernard’s Catholic Grammar, all which have an ‘outstanding’ Ofsted rating, and of course Eton College is just 2 miles away.

10. Value: Many of the new residents at Horlicks Quarter have chosen to move out of London due to escalating house prices – homes in Slough are up to 45% less than average prices in London.
