L&Q: Shared Ownership show home launching at Huntley Wharf, Reading

Collection of first time buyer apartments available in the heart of Berkshire

L&Q is excited to announce the opening of the first show home at its flagship riverside scheme, L&Q at Huntley Wharf, in Reading. The stunning apartment will showcase the contemporary style and spacious design of the new homes on offer. Prospective purchasers who reserve a home over launch weekend will receive a £750 John Lewis voucher.

Purchasers are invited to book an appointment between 10am – 5pm over the launch weekend, Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th January, when a selection of savoury refreshments will be available, including freshly baked, authentic stone baked pizzas complemented by a selection of tasty sides.

L&Q at Huntley Wharf is a brand new collection of 115 contemporary one and two bedroom apartments and maisonettes located in Reading town centre, available to purchase through L&Q’s Shared Ownership scheme.

Huntley Wharf presents a unique opportunity to live in a ‘London style’, central town scheme just 10 minutes’ walk from the station. Huntley Wharf will feature an impressive array of on-site amenities including a gym, café, convenience store, restaurant, plus beautifully landscaped grounds including a central piazza, riverside square, podium gardens and riverside walks.

Since launching in summer 2021, all the properties have been sold off-plan to date, with the new L&Q Shared Ownership apartments at Huntley Wharf proving popular with young professionals renting in Reading, keen to get their foot on the property ladder.

The apartments come ‘ready to move in’ with contemporary fitted kitchens featuring a range of integrated appliances, with walls painted in neutral colours, complemented by Karndean flooring. The majority of homes include private outdoor space in the form of a balcony or terrace.

Each home has access to beautifully landscaped podium gardens. Alongside these communal gardens, residents can enjoy the outdoors at the central Riverside Square and landscaped grounds which feature lush lawns, a range of colourful flowers and water features throughout the development.

Andrea Palmer, Head of Sales, L&Q, explains; “Huntley Wharf has proved to be a popular choice with local renters who have been struggling to raise a large enough deposit to buy their first home. With our Shared Ownership scheme, buyers are only required to pay a deposit on the percentage share they buy, rather than the full value of the home – a more affordable and practical scheme, designed as a stepping-stone to ultimately owning your own home.”

Shared Ownership offers a cost-effective way for aspiring homeowners to take the first step, by part-owning and part-renting a property, complete with the security and stability of owning their own home. To be eligible to purchase a property at Huntley Wharf under L&Q’s Shared Ownership scheme, you must have a combined annual household income starting from £33,000 for a one bedroom apartment, with a good credit history and a minimum of £5,000 to cover the costs of buying a home.

The marketing suite is open daily from 10am – 5pm and 10am – 4pm on Sunday. Located on Kenavon Drive, a 10 minute walk from Reading station.

Prices start from £71,250 for a 25% share of a one bedroom home (FMV: £285,000) and a minimum deposit of £3,563. Two bedroom homes start from £87,500 for a 25% share (FMV: £350,000) and a minimum deposit of £4,375.
