Ascot racecourse apartment sales gallop ahead

Ascot racecourse apartment sales gallop ahead

No other event links haute couture and top level sport with such finesse; I give you Royal Ascot which attracts a whopping 500,000 visitors every year. The pull of glamour, the presence of the Royal Family and the dramatic flat racing go hand in hand with cutting edge fashion, champagne and the chance of a little flutter. This is what drives the crowds back to this Berkshire town year after year.

  • Royal Ascot (17th – 21st June 2014) attracts 500,000 visitors every year
  • Show Home Open Day on Saturday May 17th at Westbrook House, Ascot
  • Westbrook House now over 70% sold, last 4 apartments remain

In its 303rd year, Royal Ascot commences on Tuesday 17th June culminating with the ‘last race’ followed by ‘singing around the bandstand’ at 6pm Saturday 21st.  Thursday 19th June is the much loved ‘Ladies Day’ where inspired millinery creations will be perched upon the heads of glamorous fillies teetering in their stilettoes.


This year, on the East side of the race track, are ten new home owners who are itching for the excitement to start.  Westbrook House was completed by award-winning luxury home builderMillgate back in January. Fourteen top of the range two and three bedroom apartments, each with two underground parking spaces proved fabulously appealing with already ten of the fourteen fine properties snapped up, mainly by local downsizers who wanted somewhere easy to live without giving up any of the benefits of their beloved Ascot.


Indeed back in June last year, Jonathan CranleySales and Marketing Director for Millgate predicted this for Westbrook House:


“I anticipate that these apartments are likely to be bought by downsizers from the local area who no longer have the need for a large family house but love the town too much to leave.”


Jonathan today remarks,


“Well nobody likes a smart Alec but I am delighted that I got this one so right.  We have been the talk of the ‘downsizers’ in Ascot with literally dozens coming for a look around our stunning Show Home. Some are not quite ready to take the downsizing plunge just yet but the interest is there so perhaps we will need to build Westbrook House II soon!


“Our proximity to Ascot racecourse has definitely been a draw of these apartments. As the crow flies they are about 800 meters from the grandstand however they are far enough away that Royal Ascot will be a pleasure and not a disturbance for residents.”


A special Open Day has been arranged at Westbrook House on Saturday May 17th. These key ready homes are guaranteed to bring any keen race goer a great deal of pleasure or for those just looking for a luxury apartment that is easy to lock up and leave when required these are just perfect.


Ascot itself boasts an array of fine dining options, an abundance charming shops, some of the finest schooling in the country and is situated in ´Royal´ Berkshire which does sound terrifically grand.
