London Home Show Sponsors: Meet Abri Homes

Offering the best choice for commuting to the capital

With the rising cost of living, many Londoners are making the decision to leave the capital and relocate to one of the increasingly popular ‘commuter towns’ in surrounding counties. Offering more affordable housing and lower living costs, these towns are a fantastic option for those looking for an easy commute into the city, without London’s soaring prices.

Two areas stand out as particularly appealing for young commuters wanting proximity to London and a range of amenities close to home: Slough and Ascot.

Recently named the best London commuter town*, Slough offers a wealth of benefits, such as fast access to the capital, excellent schools and ample green space. The Berkshire town is only 19-minutes from London Paddington by train, and regular buses get to Heathrow Airport in under half an hour.

Abri Homes’ Horlicks Quarter is a collection of 75 one and two bedroom apartments located on the grounds of Slough’s former Horlicks Factory, where the famous Horlicks malted milk drink was once produced.

Residents benefit from a concierge, gym, cinema room, rooftop garden and lounge, and the development’s coworking space makes working from home a breeze. The Slough train station is a short walk away, meaning residents can get to London in under an hour for work or to enjoy the nightlife.

Horlicks Quarter is also just minutes from Slough’s high street shopping and restaurants, providing all the amenities you need right on the doorstep, and Windsor is just 12-minutes away by car,

Also located in Berkshire, Ascot is another popular option for commuters. While famous for its racecourse, the area offers small-town charm with ample amenities and trains from Ascot, Sunningdale and Virginia Water arrive in Waterloo in just over an hour.

Abri has two developments in the area that are perfect for commuters looking for access to London and proximity to all that Ascot has to offer.

A collection of one and two bedroom apartments, Sunninghill Square is located in the popular Sunninghill village, recently named as one of the top 10 places to live in Berkshire**. Each home comes with its own balcony or patio, integrated appliances and parking, and the development is a short walk from Sunninghill’s high street and a six minutes’ drive to the Ascot station.

Sunningdale Park features one to two bedroom apartments located on acres of historic parkland. Residents will benefit from woodland trails on their doorstep, a balcony or patio and allocated parking. Ascot train station is a seven-minute drive away, and it’s a short walk to the nearby Sunninghill high street for shopping and dining.

These brand-new homes provide buyers with an opportunity to purchase a high quality affordable home within the perfect commuting distance of the capital, under the Shared Ownership scheme.

One bedroom apartments start from £100,625 at Horlicks Quarter – based on a 35% share and £88,750 and £106,250 at Sunninghill Square and Sunningdale Park respectively – based on a 25% share.
