The stylish collection of riverside apartments at Kennet House, on Kings Road, will start from as little as £138,000 for a studio, £144,000 for a one-bedroom and two-bedrooms from £270,000. Unlike many new build developments, the remodelled building at Kennet House includes New York studio apartments, one and two-bedroom single storey apartments and two-bedroom duplexes.
The quirky apartments boast a sociable and spacious open plan living area, perfect for dinner parties with friends against the riverside backdrop. Built to the highest specification synonymous with Crest Nicholson, the apartments come with fully fitted kitchens complete with stainless steel Bosch appliances, soft close drawers and low energy under-unit lighting. Stylish bathrooms contain classic white Roca suites, complemented by contemporary floor-to-ceiling tiles and white sanitary-ware.
Each apartment enjoys generously sized bedrooms, and the one, two and three-bedroom properties benefit from built-in wardrobes and ample storage. The two-bedroom apartments also enjoy en suite shower rooms, ensuring that they are as accommodating of guests as they are for live-in landlords who are keen to rent out a room.
Susan Young, Sales and Marketing Director Crest Nicholson Regeneration, explains: “The location and specification of Kennet House raises the bar for new apartments in Reading. Crest Nicholson has a long history of developing in the area, consequently we have a strong understanding of the requirements of local buyers, which has been integrated into the design and layout of these new homes. We’ve seen strong levels of interest already and expect the development to be very successful, both with local purchasers looking to move out of rented accommodation and onto the housing ladder, as well as with investors looking to benefit from good rental yields and longer term capital growth.”
With trains to London Paddington leaving frequently, the convenient location of the apartments, within walking distance of Reading station, makes the quick commute to London that bit easier. The Town centre of Reading is bustling with things to do and see; boutique and high end shopping, an array of restaurants, bars, cinemas and leisurely strolls around the picturesque Kennet River and countryside beyond.
Apartments at Kennet House are available from £138,000 for a studio, £144,000 for a one-bedroom and two-bedrooms from £270,000. For more information or to register your interest, please contact 0118 402 7015 or visit www.crestnicholson.com/kennethouse
