- Village development of more than 750 homes
- New England inspired properties
- Hardie® Plank cladding specified in seven colours
Exterior design traits include classic Hardie® Plank weatherboard in colours including Arctic White and Midnight Black, providing a natural timber effect, long-lasting durability and a stunning finish. Coloured matched finely-finished balconies and window frames complete the look, with natural landscaping and pathways, all designed to blend in to the development’s calming waterside backdrop.
Each collection at Green Park Village – finished with James Hardie products – will have its own distinctive character and Longwater Reach is no exception. In addition to the characteristic New England inspired homes, Longwater Reach includes a central mews with coach and town houses. Careful landscaping and paving design clearly define the pedestrian and vehicular spaces in the characteristic shared surface area of a typical mews.
Kam Mackrory, marketing manager at Berkeley Group, says: ‘Gone are the days of standard brick box houses. Our discerning customers are looking for homes with true character, and these leading edge designs reflect this. The use of colour has been particularly important to us to achieve the desired aesthetic effect, and we are delighted with the positive response of prospective homeowners.
Choosing to use Hardie® Plank fibre cement cladding was an important decision for us, we needed a material that would stand the test of time and keep the development looking fresh for generations to come’.
Located south of the central Reading, adjacent to Green Park Business Park, Green Park Village is spread across 60 acres surrounded by green open space with trim trails, cycle routes and nature paths. This unique development will provide a first for Reading’s property market – a beautiful lakeside retreat, with great access to city amenities.
