Bellway Homes is highlighting one of its developments where buyers can get a new property in Reading for just £222,000.

Given soaring demand for efficient and stylish new homes, Bellway says its Renaissance scheme of one to three bedroom apartments in Portman Road to the west of the town centre, is proving extremely popular, even with those coming from out of the town.

Prices start at £222,000 for a one-bedroom apartment.

Emma Jones, sales and marketing director at Bellway Thames Valley, said: “When it comes to buying a home, new builds are proving to be extremely popular with home hunters across the UK.

“We have seen a huge demand for homes year on year with homebuyers loving the fact that a new build is hassle and chain-free, as opposed to the challenges that arise when purchasing pre-existing homes on the market.

“Due to the high level of demand for such properties, the apartments at Renaissance have been selling extremely well, as purchasers have been impressed the quality of the finishes and the benefits of having allocated parking spaces and balconies to most apartments.”

Bellway’s promotion states:
