CALA Homes has turned the site of the Transport and Road Research Laboratory (TRRL) at Crowthorne into a development of stunning new homes.

Buckler’s Park is a new community at site which has long been significant in the development of motoring.

CALA and Haslams Estate Agent has provided the following:          

With its lovely countryside and outstanding schools, Crowthorne fits the bill for many looking to relocate out of the city or other busy nearby towns. The area is best known for the exceptional Wellington College, however this small historic town offers a number of other excellent local schools and a lovely sense of community along with picturesque country walks.

New to Crowthorne is Buckler’s Park, a superb new development which is being built on the former location of the Transport and Road Research Laboratory (TRRL). The land was once used for vehicle testing, research and innovative developments, such as the mini-roundabout, speed humps and changes to the Green Cross Code, but is now home to a brand new community.

Alongside the development is Buckler’s Forest which sits immediately adjacent to the Thames Basin Heath SPA. 100 acres of SANG (Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace) has been created between the SPA and the residential development, protecting the local biodiversity. The Buckler’s Park scheme provides a network of trails and cycle routes through the forest, all for free public access and offering an exciting chance to live a relaxed outdoor lifestyle.

Even though Buckler’s Park is surrounded by green space and beautiful forests, the homes in this new development are still within easy commute of London, Crowthorne and its village life make a very attractive prospect for people looking for that change of pace. While Crowthorne station doesn’t offer any direct trains to London, you can still get to Paddington via Reading in less than an hour or Waterloo via Guildford in about 80 minutes and the road links make for a simple commute.

Speaking about the new development Mike Shearn, chief operating officer at Haslams Estate Agents, part of the Haslams Group, the selling agents for CALA at Buckler’s Park, said: “New homes this close to the centre of Crowthorne are rare, particularly of the exceptional quality which CALA Homes delivers. The location of the development is ideal for people seeking a superior work life balance, which we have seen become a top priority for buyers, during the pandemic.”

The homes at Buckler’s Park by CALA Homes are offered with a number of buying schemes including Help to Buy and Part Exchange so that purchasers can make their new move a reality.
