1 Bedroom Flat, Kings Road, From £225,000

This first-floor new-build comes with an allocated basement parking space, video-entry system and full access to the gym and concierge. The development’s selling point has to be the communal roof garden with views across town and towards rural Caversham. Penthouse, studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments are all currently available to purchase. We like the look of the well-designed studios, which are more akin to one-beds thanks to sliding partition doors that create an enclosed bedroom. Each apartment will offer a modern kitchen with integrated appliances, flooring throughout, LED lights and satellite TV connection points in the living room.
