SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Called No.6, the latest collection of apartments at Bankside Gardens in Reading, Berkshire, in the UK, is set to be launched for sale in Singapore on Sept 25 and 26.
No.6 at Bankside Gardens comprises 84 one- and two- apartments, with prices starting from £290,000 (about $536,400) for a one-bedroom unit, and £390,000 for a two-bedder. The overall development comprises 461 units across seven blocks.
Each unit boasts open layouts designed for flexible living. The living areas open out to a balcony or terrace area overlooking private landscaped gardens, describes Benham & Reeves, which is marketing the property. The kitchens will be fitted with appliances from Bosch, Beko and Smeg, with composite stone worktops dressed with timber and matte finishes.
The main bedrooms will feature fitted wardrobes, while the bathrooms will be fitted with wall-mounted vanity storage cabinets and polished chrome fixtures. For the two-bedroom units, the master bedroom will be attached to an en suite bathroom.
Residents at No.6 will have access to a co-working studio, gym, cinema and concierge service. Commercial and retail space will be located on the ground floor of some of the blocks. There will also be landscaped gardens on the ground and podium levels, offering residents recreation choices.
Bankside Gardens occupies 7 acres (2.83ha) besides a lake, surrounded by parkland and is within close proximity from central Reading. The new Reading Green Park railway station will be located directly next to Bankside Gardens, which will allow direct access to Reading railway station in just six minutes, says Benham & Reeves.
Green Park Business Park by Mapletree is a short walk away from the development. Amenities at the business park include a gym with pool, restaurants, retail and nature paths around Longwater Lake. Businesses that have offices there include F&B firm PepsiCo and tech company Cisco.
“Reading is a serious hotspot for buyers who are looking for an out-of-London home but don’t want to compromise on city living or easy access into the capital. We expect these homes to be especially popular with young professionals,” says Paul Vallone, executive chairman at St Edward, developer of the property.
“Bankside Gardens offers all the lifestyle benefits of urban living, from superb travel connections to luxury amenities, as well as the advantages of living out of the capital — lower price points and immediate access to plentiful outdoor space,” he adds.
