As part of Slough’s major regeneration project, developer, James Taylor Homes has appointed global real estate advisor, Colliers International to showcase Blake House, a contemporary residential housing project which will bring 25 much-needed new homes to the area.
Ben Morris, Director of New Homes at Colliers International says: “Slough town centre is undergoing major redevelopment, including the upgrading of the railway station in readiness for Crossrail, which is set to open in 2019, offering even better access to Central London within 15 minutes making Slough an ideal base for professionals commuting to the capital. The area is also home to 42 parks and open spaces, some well-regarded primary and secondary schools, shopping, sports, leisure and cultural amenities, making it an attractive location for families.”
The scheme is positioned right in the heart of vibrant Slough High Street, yet within a short distance to the Berkshire countryside. It comprises 5 studios, 9 one-bedroom, 11 two-bedroom apartments with prices starting from £206,000. Blake House will be released initially at the end of June 2017 to investors and owner occupiers with a Help to Buy event set to launch in the Autumn when a show apartment will be available to view.
Each apartment has been designed to a high specification with the many of the units featuring a balcony or terrace. All of the upper floors benefit from stunning views of Windsor Castle. The flats are fitted with bespoke designed kitchens with Smeg appliances; luxury modern bathrooms/en-suites with vanity units; open plan living and kitchen areas with wooden floors and built in wardrobes to all master bedrooms. Car parking spaces are also available to buy subject to availability.
The western rail access to Heathrow will decrease the journey time from Slough to just six minutes and this is expected to result in more than £800 million of economic activity and create 42,000 new jobs. By 2020, house prices in Slough are set to rise by 60 per cent. Slough has Europe’s largest trading estate with more than 4,600 businesses, including O2, Unilever, Ferrari and Honda Slough is the 3rd most productive town in the UK contributing £8 billion to the national economy.
