Sceptre Gate proves popular with investors

Reports suggest that now is a great time to invest in property in Windsor due to the buoyant property market which has seen housing prices rise here by over 12% in the last year to an average of £540,000.

When compared national average house price of just £265,022, Windsor is clearly outperforming many areas due to the desirable lifestyle and excellent commuter links to London that it offers. 

Similarly, rents in Windsor are also well above the national average of £1,808 per month, with an average rental yield of £3,089 per month*. 

With property markets on the up, landlords have been taking advantage of these favourable conditions and investing in buy to let property in Windsor.

Having already purchased one Oakford Home, this was exactly the case was for investor, Mrs Hazelwood when she discovered Oakford’s 8 luxury apartments for sale at Sceptre Gate in the heart of Windsor. 

Mrs Hazelwood comments: “After already purchasing an Oakford apartment at the Rickmansworth development in Hertfordshire, I was very eager to invest in Sceptre Gate, as the process at Rickmansworth was so seamless and everything went to plan.”

With Sceptre Gate apartments selling fast, Mrs Hazelwood did not hesitate and was particularly won over by location. She comments: “I felt Windsor was the perfect location for rental, as it has a lot to offer and is within easy reach of some great transport links, coupled with my close proximity to the area, residing in Beaconsfield.”  

Sceptre Gate offers great commuter links, with trains to London Paddington within just 30 minutes from the nearby station, plus the M4 and Heathrow airport are all within close proximity. This highly desirable location is also within walking distance of the iconic Windsor Castle, River Thames and town centre, offering a wealth of amenities including chic restaurants, parks and cafes.

Each apartment at Sceptre Gate offers high quality contemporary interiors including fully-fitted designer kitchens with integrated appliances and elegant bathroom suites with meticulous attention to detail throughout. 

As a keen investor, Mrs Hazelwood is very scrupulous after having experienced a not so seamless process with a different developer. She comments: “I previously invested with another developer prior to Oakford and did not receive the same customer focussed service. The process with Oakford was so easy and straightforward making them different to other developers and providing a service you cannot find elsewhere.”

Mrs Hazelwood added: “I am delighted with the high quality specification and 10 year warranty this apartment provides and I’m very impressed with the second to none service I received from Oakford Homes, providing me with real peace of mind”. 

Due to the high demand for these luxury residences, there is now only one penthouse apartment remaining at Sceptre Gate. If you wish to find out more information about this development, please contact Oakford Homes on 01753 859565 or email
