The Answer Is in the Stars….

Author: klara | December, 31 2017

A very warm welcome to 2018 from us all at Jones Robinson.

As the New Year kicks off, many of us enjoy the sense of new energy to get back into the swing of things and begin to mentally outline the coming 12 months – from the school year, to sporting events and festivals to family holidays, landmark birthdays and anniversaries. Star gazers will know that January alone is packed with celestial activity, including a meteor shower and two Super Moons (the later of which is a Blue Moon that some of the world will be able to experience in full lunar eclipse!) read more

Thatcham set for 14 brand-new family homes

Author: jonesrobinson | February, 26 2013

Nothing excites us more than property, especially if it’s something sought-after. So you can imagine the atmosphere after we won the instruction to market a rare collection of 14 brand new three- and four-bedroom homes for sale in Thatcham, being built by local house builder Palady Homes. This year has already got off to a good start, with better mortgage products filtering through to consumers but it’s no good having finance if there’s no homes to buy! There has been a distinct lack of affordable family homes in the South East but these 14 new homes are set to redress the balance in our corner of Berkshire. The development is called Mallards Reach and is set on popular Station Road, less that a 10 minute walk from the mainline train station, with links to Newbury, Reading and London Paddington. Prices start from as little as £242,500 – which represents amazing value-for-money given the size and specification of the properties – with completion set for the next 9-12 months. Amenities close by include supermarkets, a doctors’ surgery, a Post Office, a sports centre and a range of local shops, as well as the ever-popular Kennet, Spurcroft and Francis Bailey schools. Buying a brand new home offers owners a low-maintenance lifestyle coupled with the latest energy-saving construction for lower fuel bills. read more
