PROPERTY developers Millgate completed the first sale of their new townhouses in Wargrave within 24 hours of the show home
PROPERTY developers Millgate completed the first sale of their new townhouses in Wargrave within 24 hours of the show home opening last month. Millgate selected this village as it offers buyers a village environment close to Maidenhead and Reading, a good selection of local and private schools and very fast travel links to London and the motorways.
The lucky couple who snapped up one of the three-bedroom homes within hours of viewing commented: “We have been looking for a property for quite some time but instantly felt this was the right home for us. The build quality is excellent throughout the property and the continued customer service from Millgate since we have moved in has been excellent.”
Wargrave benefits from quick train links into London, is convenient for Heathrow and the choice of schooling available locally is a real draw for families.
Also, it fortunately does not suffer from quite such a hefty property price tag as some of its local competitors. Zoopla data reveals that the average price on a Wargrave property in the past year was just over £491,000 whereas in better-known Henley, just 3.6 miles away, the average house price was more than £591,000.
In addition, award-winning Millgate has worked with the local community and even went as far as to name the estate Bird Gardens, the name of one of the oldest families in the village.
The original Bird home has been renovated by Millgate and further new homes built on the driveway to this home. One local resident went so far as to say: “Well done Millgate for preserving Ye Nest and building nice houses where the old Gleneagles Garage once stood. It is a lovely sight... all freshly painted with an attractive fence in front.”
Millgate’s sales and marketing director, Jonathan Cranley, comments: “When designing a new development in the heart of a village such as the project at Bird Gardens it is very important to work with the local community and to overcome any concerns they might have. We understand that living next to a building site for several months is never going to be a first choice so where we can, we try to be understanding and courteous to our neighbours at all times.
“It was our pleasure to use the name of the former owner of this land as a mark of respect to the family. Little things like this can make a big difference to village life and we hope that we have built homes that will add to the area and bring more families into this delightful spot.”
Bird Gardens, Wargrave, is a private collection of eight, three- and four-bedroom semi-detached homes located in the sought-after village of Wargrave. Built by local developers Millgate, each home offers well-planned accommodation over three floors with a modern design featuring stylish kitchens and bathrooms, light- filled conservatories, garage, balcony and landscaped gardens. Each luxury family home has been built to include a garage, conservatory and a balcony off one of the bedrooms. The gardens are fully landscaped.
The houses start at £675,000. To find out more and register your interest contact Millgate on 0118 934 3344 or visit their website at www. millgatehomes.co.uk
