Sales of luxury apartments and houses at Fair Mile, the former Victorian hospital building at Cholsey, have exceeded the expectations of developer Thomas Homes, who is planning to release the next phase of properties.
Karen Mole of Savills who is marketing the scheme comments, “The scheme has achieved over 50 percent more sales than we had forecast for the year. This is an exceptional result in the current climate. We have seen an exceptionally high level of interest at Fair Mile, which we put down to the uniqueness of the scheme, which offers a new lifestyle for residents. The properties we are selling are each individual and are packed with character features including panelled walls, window seats, high ceilings and moulted architraves, to mention a few.”
She adds, “Applicants have been surprised at the mature grounds which stretch down to the River Thames. In all residents have 100 acres of communal grounds and meadow land to enjoy, and many of the properties also benefit from their own private gardens."
In addition to the few remaining apartments in the first phases, Faringdon Court and Ipsden Court, Thomas Homes is due to release two lodges located at the entrance to the grounds. Henley Lodge and Englefield Lodge are semi detached and individual in style and layout. Both offer a sitting room with feature fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room, utility, two bedrooms and bathroom.
Karen Mole continues, “These charming properties with their private gardens will suit a buyer looking for a character property, which has been renovated to a high standard, and is ready to move in to. Each of the lodges has two parking spaces and prices range from £245,000 to £295,000.”
Phase three at Fair Mile, which consists of a further thirteen apartments in the main building will be released in November. Named ‘Hermitage Court’, this phase offers a range of two bedroom apartments on ground, first or second floors priced from £260,000 - £320,000.
