Let there be light – new Bewley townhouses make the most of extensive glazing 

Posted 6 October 2016 by Keith Osborne

These new homes in Reading have plenty of glazing to maximise the amount of daylight and provide a delightful, open-plan lifestyle for families...

With research showing that greater access to daylight within the home provides better sleep, appetite, memory and mood, the design of new townhouses at Bewley Homes’ Parklands development in Earley, near Reading is sure to appeal to many homebuyers.

Parklands offers a selection of distinctively styled three- and four-bedroom townhouses, where wide bi-folding doors with partially-glazed roofs off the living room allow sunshine to flood through to the hub of the home. These homes provide light-filled interiors with living rooms that open out onto the private garden, perfect for bringing the outside in with summer barbeques and neighbourhood gatherings.

With high ceilings, large windows, bi-folding doors and partially-glazed roofs, the homes stand out in their ability to allow daylight to flow freely in the home, even on the dullest of days. Elsewhere in the properties, there are Shaker-style kitchens with a full complement of integrated appliances, and a dining area perfect for entertaining friends and family. The light continues through the home into the bedrooms, which set are over two floors.

The overall effect is a home which is comfortable, bright and great for creating a relaxed family lifestyle.

Parklands is a stone’s throw from a selection of transport links, ideal for professionals commuting into Reading, the Thames Valley or London, as well as the counties surrounding Berkshire. Those travelling into central London will find themselves in Paddington in 25 minutes from Reading, with Earley’s own station offering a route into Waterloo via Bracknell, Ascot and Staines. Crossrail services will start from Reading in 2018, improving journey times into and through central London considerably. 

Current prices at Parklands start from £435,000 for three-bedroom houses, and £495,000 for four-bedroom houses. Help to Buy is also available at the development.
