Berkshire is arguably the County in southern England which has changed the most over the last twenty five years. More businesses have established themselves on the periphery of the capital, taking full advantage of the accessibility to the area by the motorway network which is predicted to continue westwards. Although dominated by Heathrow airport and the flight path that affects most of the County, property prices have always been strong in the area.

With villages and towns such as Sunningdale, Windsor and Virginia Water, you pay premium prices for a property and many say you are paying for an address. But, if it is the peace, quiet and value for money you are seeking, then the western part of the County around Hungerford and some of the villages surrounding Newbury should be considered in your Berkshire property search.

Most of West Berkshire is within 75 minutes of London. It remains one of the most popular areas for the country house market, as much of it is extremely pretty and within a comfortable commute of London.
