An imposing Edwardian clock tower and chimney provide the focus for this splendid new property development in the heart of Slough, part of the M4 tech-corridor. The original buildings were built by beverage manufacturer, James Horlicks on land bought from nearby Eton College and are a reminder of the entrepreneurial traditions that continue to drive the town forward. The world-renowned college continues to be the choice of the global elite for educating their boys and is situated just 1.5miles from Horlicks Quarter. Apartments here are likely to be regarded as an excellent investment: Slough has recently benefitted from £3.5 billion worth of infrastructural investment and the new Elizabeth Line is set to revolutionise travel into Central London.
The trademark design ethos and build quality of a Berkeley scheme are apparent throughout. Spacious balconies overlook landscaped courtyards and there is a range of top-quality facilities available to residents, including a gym, cinema, lounge and a 12-hour concierge service. Although Slough ranks second only to London in terms of being home to blue-chip company head-quarters, it shares the same proximity to lush, green countryside, enjoyed by its royal neighbour, Windsor which is just 3 miles away. This fact, together with access to other former grammar schools, is a major part of the area’s popularity with young families and city professionals, making it one of the fastest growing and youngest populations in the UK.
The advent of the Elizabeth Line is a massive game-changer for the neighbourhood as it will attract young professionals who need fast access to the West End and the City. Just a seven-minute walk from Horlicks Quarter, Slough station is part of a high-speed service running directly into Central London. Journey times on this network are 32 minutes to Bond Street and 16 minutes to Heathrow Airport.
