Maidenhead (19 minutes from central London)
The Maidenhead Project – Boutique development of 26 apartments only on a beautiful cobbled high street.
- Prices starting at £232,500 ~ Rental Yields 5.4%
The Maidenhead Project is located in Maidenhead (The Royal Borough of Windsor) which is 19 minutes from London via Crossrail (train) and the development is a 7 minute walk from the train station. If you are looking for a home with easy access to London this would be it. It is undergoing a £1bn regeneration and has become a hugely desirable place to live, so much so it was voted happiest place in the UK to live. They have a big shortage of rental stock so the prices for rentals have increased significantly, so an excellent buy-to-let option.
There is direct access from Maidenhead train station to Paddington, Bond Street, Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf so it is a mecca for commuters. Furthermore, the £1 bn regeneration will provide 100,000 sqft of commercial space so it will attract businesses looking for close proximity to London without paying London prices. The regeneration project is underway, so worth noting that early investment into the area should see good capital growth.
A bit of a highlight is that the project is 5 minutes from the Fat Duck Restaurant, a Heston Blumenthal restaurant that has been awarded 3 Michelin stars and ‘Best restaurant in the World’.
