Berkshire has a prestigious history as not only one of the oldest counties in Britain circa 840; it is also home to Windsor Castle, still known as a royal residence today. Bordered on the North East side by the River Thames and housing Eton College for boys, Berkshire’s green space and cultural aspects are something the community was keen to maintain as they devised the 2015 Council Strategy plan and the Local Economic Development Strategy for West Berkshire. The four aims essentially come under the main goal of improving education, infrastructure and the community itself and there has been certain success already; since 2013, the unemployment levels have dropped by 2% whilst the percentage of those with an educational level of 5 and higher is 35.9%, higher than the UK average. With the combination of green space, a proud business reputation and the potential to expand and grow in value, Berkshire is fast becoming an opportunity for the Buy-to-Let investor or the owner-occupier alike.
Slough is a key asset to this historic County and is currently undergoing over £450 million worth of regeneration and rejuvenation of the town centre. Housing the largest industrial estate in private ownership in Europe, Slough boasts more than 17,000 people working for over 400 businesses located there. Offering the perfect blend of green space, historic connections and a business hub with direct transport links into London only serving to be improved by the opening of Crossrail, Slough’s reputation will be transformed into a keystone for residents as well as commuters.
Galliard’s prime reputation of locating and developing future property hotspots has been unfaltering and is no less so with the introduction of Atria. Set less than a 10 minute drive to the train station, this development will offer 108 exclusive studios, one and two bedroom apartments from a converted office building with prices starting from £169,995. Ensuring residents will be perfectly satisfied, Atria House will be finished with high quality interiors and high-tech appliances with journeys into Paddington lasting 18 minutes from Slough Railway station; Atria House provides the ideal opportunity for an owner-occupier looking for an easy commute with a lifestyle that allows for both business and leisure in one space, or the Buy-to-Let investor who desires to expand their market out of the city.
