Why Windsor is winning the new homes race?

With its rich mix of history, culture and heritage, it’s no surprise that Windsor has been named as number 11 in Savills top 20 relocation hot spots for those moving out of London.

Research carried out by the estate agent suggests that 20.8% of buyers in the town are those escaping the Capital for the leafy and picturesque surroundings of Windsor and of these, around half are young couples. 

This is understandable perhaps when one considers that the town is internationally recognised for its historic castle, which is one of the official British residences of the royal family, riverside walks, excellent shopping and fine dining.

Award-winning house builder Oakford Homes is also taking a leaf out of the purchaser’s books by announcing three new developments in the town.
Clarence Place in Imperial Road, Sceptre Gate in Sheet Street and St Leonards House in St Leonards Road in the heart of Windsor, will all offers buyers the chance to live 30 miles from London in an exclusive Oakford home.

From 1 and 2 bedroom apartments to 3 bedroom family homes, Oakford is offering a variety of schemes to suit the different buyers moving out of London as house prices continue to rise.

Chris Coates of Oakford Homes comments: “According to the Bank of England, one in 15 homes in London now sell for £1m* meaning that many buyers are being priced out of the property market. At Oakford Homes we can only see this trend continuing and Windsor is a fantastic location for Londoners to relocate to. “

He adds: “Amongst Windsor’s many virtues are its commutability with two centrally-based stations, one going to Paddington and the other to Waterloo. The town also has a vibrant and cosmopolitan atmosphere to create a highly sought after location. It’s no wonder our exclusive developments have seen such interest, offering the unique mix of this desirable locale and everything a buyer could need with our luxury flexible living spaces.”

The beautiful new 3 bedroom show home at Clarence Place is open Thursday to Monday 10am – 5pm giving purchasers the opportunity to view the quality and meticulous finish of an Oakford Home. Properties are priced from £625,000. For more information please telephone 01628 522084 or email windsor@oakfordhomes.co.uk
