Binfield – The homebuyer’s honeypot

Binfield – The homebuyer’s honeypot

On the surface of it, Binfield may appear an unassuming sleepy Berkshire village on the outskirts of Wokingham so why has it become such a honeypot for homebuyers?

One award-winning developer which has realised the vast potential and growing buyer demand for homes in this charming village is Millgate who are shortly to open the doors to their latest show home at Meadows Reach in Binfield.

The show house is one of 18 properties about to enter the market and according to Peter Kavanagh of appointed selling agent, Romans, the launch could not be better timed:

“We absolutely cannot wait to be able to show our clients around this wonderful development; Millgate have pitched the build quality and size of homes perfectly.  We already have a queue of people who are anxious to visit and the October launch cannot come soon enough!”

Kavanagh goes on to comment on the current market in Binfield,

“We have seen a very buoyant market so far in 2014.  Wokingham, the closest town to Meadows Reach is becoming a very desirable place to live.  And for those that cannot afford the uplift in prices that has occurred in Wokingham itself, Binfield offers a fabulous alternative.”

Back in October 2012 Wokingham was hailed as the most desirable place in England and Wales to bring up a family according to a national study by Family Investments, which examined factors such as quality of schools, childcare provision, cost of living, crime levels and property affordability. The study also considered the availability of parks and green spaces, leisure centres, museums and theatres.

Little has changed over the past 2 years except more recently some quite large mid-range developments are under construction on the edge of the town.  Kavanagh says:

“Another reason that Millgate’s Meadows Reach development will do so well is the sheer quality of work which is outstanding and will surely stand out from the rest of the crowd.”

Opening the doors to the show home on Saturday 18th October, Millgate are looking forward to welcoming a diverse range of people across the threshold. The homes are so well designed that they will perfectly suit downsizers, upsizers, side steppers or first time buyers alike – depending on their particular situation. And with prices starting at just £450,000 it is easy to see why these high quality homes are sure to sell fast.

A choice of house sizes is available at Meadows Reach with an innovative development of eighteen 3 & 4 bedroom homes. The development has been beautifully thought out with 2 acres of recreational land for owners to share and enjoy.

Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, Jonathan Cranley, comments on the new collection,

“We are currently in the most extraordinary position of having sold all of our stock, a first since I joined Millgate in 2007.  It goes to prove the confidence buyers have in the South East of England and our homes.

“We have had many calls over the past couple of years to build some more affordable homes in Berkshire and this is exactly what we have done, responded to our client’s needs. I believe that Binfield, just 6 miles from Wokingham is exactly what the UK needs to overcome the current housing crisis.  Smaller bespoke developments in semi-rural areas which are very easy to commute to and from.”
