Wokingham Borough Council’s Elms Field regeneration is proving the perfect place to live as town houses and apartments in the new development continue to be snapped up, even before work completes on the final properties.
With a total of 126 new houses and apartments located around the new park on Earle Crescent and Biscoe Way, as well as above the new businesses on Elms Walk and on Denmark Street, the properties are showing their appeal with 30 of the 68 properties released at the end of last year already exchanged or completed, 42 offers accepted and interest continuing to come in on the remaining new homes.
“It’s easy to see why the properties at Elms Field are proving so popular.” Said Cllr Charlotte Haitham Taylor, executive member for regeneration. “They are right in the heart of the town centre close to all the fantastic facilities Wokingham has to offer including shops, the Everyman Cinema, and a great range of cafes and restaurants. It’s also only a few minutes’ walk from the train station and, when it opens in 2022, the council’s flagship new Carnival Hub with its brand new library and facilities for sports, leisure and culture.
“All the properties have been built to an incredibly high standard, creating lovely new homes with lots of character and modern features. It is also the perfect place for people looking to work from home as, despite being in the centre of town, the use of insulation and glazing makes them incredibly peaceful and quiet places to be.”
In addition to allocated parking, the majority of the new houses and apartments also benefit from fantastic views looking out over the Elms Field Park or the wider historic town, with balconies and outdoor spaces to make the most of the views. Many of the new properties around the park also benefit from their own roof terraces to offer a truly unique town centre living experience.
Cllr Haitham Taylor continued: “It’s great to see how well the new homes are selling as, like the new apartments being built on the Carnival site, the profits made from sales are being ploughed back into the regeneration helping us deliver facilities like the new Carnival Hub and Elms Field play area for free. They are also helping to secure a long term source of income that can be used to fund projects and services throughout the borough for years to come, which is a massive win for all our local residents’.
