Reading is a large market town and borough in the county of Berkshire. Located on the M4 motorway 40 miles west of London and within easy reach of both Oxford and Bristol, it has been described as having some of the best transport connections in England. The impending addition of the Elizabeth Line will further boost its appeal with London escapees lured by the scenery of the Chiltern Hills and North Wessex Downs that surround the town.
Great houses, fantastic location, nice mix of properties, close to amenities and local transport. Ideal place to live.
Please review your development:
Overall the houses are well built, good space, lovely communal areas, fantastic sales manager for when buying. Only negatives would be the constant chasing of the customer service team to get snags completed and the general lack of follow up regarding if the works were ever carried out, also very much up to you to advise if you are happy with works or not and not the site team ensuring it meets their build standards. Biggest issue though is the windows and doors installed, you can sit in the sitting room of the house and literally hear peoples full conversations when they walk past with the window closed, not what I was expecting from a brand new house and after raising many times and the site team agreeing it was not normal, eventually receive a letter from the Managing Director for the Thames Valley area advising there was nothing wrong with the windows or doors.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
The quality of the windows and doors and how much noise would be let in.
How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:
As advised above, everything has been resolved with time and chasing except the windows and doors which we now have to live with.
