There’s still time to buy a Crossrail home

We’ve heard and read a lot about how the arrival of Crossrail will impact the property market. With the first Crossrail line set to open next month, entering passenger service between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, Essex, it seems those who have bought along the line are finally set to reap the benefits. However, there’s still time to invest in a Crossrail home, even on a budget!

We’ve found a selection of homes available through Help to Buy and shared ownership that enjoy ideal locations nearby to upcoming Crossrail stations. Buyers will find themselves ideally positioned for fast-track travel in and around the capital, and as a homeowner be able to benefit from growth on the value of their property too.

Trinity Walk is a distinctive new neighbourhood of stylish one, two and three-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom townhouses, located just a mile from the new Crossrail station in Woolwich. With 12 services an hour, homebuyers from Woolwich will be able to reach Canary Wharf in eight minutes, Liverpool Street in 14 minutes and Bond Street in just 22 minutes, when The Elizabeth Line opens later this year. Each home is completed to the same high specification with a private outdoor area and to top it off, London Help to Buy is available which means buyers only need a 5% deposit.

Enjoying a more rural location, So Resi Wokingham will be just a ten-minute journey away from Reading’s Crossrail station which is opening in December 2019, ideal for commuting homebuyers. The development comprises a new collection of one and two-bedroom apartments and two to four-bedroom homes in Wokingham which are available to purchase through shared ownership with So Resi. The homes are built to a high specification, with spacious living areas and stylish fittings adding a touch of luxury.

So Resi launches spacious four-bedroom show home in Wokingham

Growing families looking for a spacious new house in Wokingham, available to buy with shared ownership, should make a beeline for So Resi Wokingham where So Resi – Thames Valley Housing’s shared ownership brand – has recently opened a superb four-bedroom show home.

The show home highlights the impressive quality of these three and four-bedroom semi-detached houses, which offer exceptional value; prices for a four-bedroom house start from just £148,125 for a 25% per cent share (full market value £592,500).

Esaiyas Mollallegn, head of marketing at Thames Valley Housing, comments: “These homes set new standards for shared ownership housing in terms of design, superior specification and a great location. We’re proud to raise the bar while offering these high-quality homes at very accessible prices.”

So Resi Wokingham is part of the wider Matthews Green Farm development which enjoys an attractive semi-rural location on the outskirts of Wokingham. When complete, this new community will include onsite shops, a brand new primary school and plenty of landscaped open spaces.

The four-bedroom houses offer a generous 1389 sq ft of space and are arranged over three levels. Opening through full-height glass doors on to a private rear garden, the large open-plan living/dining/kitchen space artfully maximises space and light. The bedrooms are on the upper two floors and the master bedroom benefits from an en suite shower room, in addition to the main bathroom. Full-height windows create bright and airy spaces throughout the home.

With a more traditional layout, the three-bedroom homes have two storeys and feature a separate kitchen.

The excellent specification of the homes includes a stylish white Symphony kitchen fitted the latest appliances; high-quality ceramic floor tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms; fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom and carpets in the living areas – all included as standard. Every home has allocated parking with car ports and garages to selected properties.

So Resi Wokingham is ideally located for families; less than a mile away are The Emmbrook School, a well-regarded specialist maths and computer college for students aged 11 to 18, and the green expanses of Cantley Park with a wide choice of sports facilities, including tennis courts.

For commuters, the mainline station is 1.8 miles away; trains reach Reading in nine minutes, Guildford in 28 minutes and London Waterloo in 68 minutes. When the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) opens at Reading station in 2019, passengers will be able to travel through central London without needing to change trains.

Currently available at So Resi Wokingham are three-bedroom houses priced at £200,000 for a 40% share (full market value £500,000) and four-bedroom houses costing £148,125 for a 25% share (full market value £592,500). A selection of two-bedroom apartments will shortly be launched.
