“I love Marlow”, explains Diana Simons, who has lived in the area for 25 years with her husband, David. The couple have recently moved within the area to a new home at Portland Gardens, built by award-winning developer Crest Nicholson.

Moving into their brand-new home, located just a short walk from the River Thames, the couple knew immediately that this was the perfect home to downsize to. Portland Gardens is tucked away from Marlow high street and is perched beneath mature trees, providing a suitably luxurious feel to this development of four-bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments.

“We’re members of the local golf club”, explains the Simons. “There are some wonderful parks nearby too, and we’ve recently seen a few new restaurants spring up on the high street”, says Diana. The couple say they particularly love their local eateries including The Ivy Marlow Garden, The Marlow Bar & Grill and La Cantina del Vino.

Having chosen to downsize into their brand-new home, the couple say that they are delighted that their home has been finished to the highest possible standards. Blending clean and contemporary interior design with classic exteriors, the development fits seamlessly into the picturesque Georgian town it resides in. The bathroom is fully fitted with a white Villeroy & Boch bathroom suite, Hansgrohe taps and Porcelanosa tiles as standard.

In terms of getting around, the A4155 runs through the centre of the town, while the M40 and M4 are both within easy reach. Central London is just 34 miles away, whilst Henley-on-Thames is only 8 miles away. A number of local bus and train stations are also within walking distance of Portland Gardens, which means that the hustle and bustle of London is just 21 minutes from Maidenhead.

Homes at Portland Gardens are available from £599,950, and go up to £1,575,000. To ensure you don’t miss out on the final few homes available, please visit the Marketing Suite, which is open daily between 10am and 5pm, and until 7pm on Thursday. Alternatively, call 01628 565 372.
