Buyers flock to Ascot for more than the world-renowned racecourse

30.04.19

Ascot is known around the world as the home of Ascot Racecourse, but this prestigious Berkshire town has so much more to offer.

Ideally located in the affluent Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, just less than an hour from Waterloo station by train and on the doorstep of Michelin-starred restaurants, distinguished sporting clubs and excellent schools, it is no wonder Ascot has become an increasingly sought-after place to live.

Every year, more than 250,000 people worldwide travel to Ascot for the equestrian event of the year – Royal Ascot. The event is the jewel in the crown of the racing season and celebrates centuries of British tradition and history, having been first founded by Queen Anne in 1711. The week-long event is renowned for attracting British nobility and members of the Royal Family to this day, including the Queen, and has played a pivotal role in cementing the area’s stature as a desirable place to live.

However, it is the lifestyle on offer in Ascot that has made it so popular with house hunters. In addition to racing, residents of Ascot can make the most of a number of prestigious pursuits and pastimes. Ascot’s Guards Polo Club, which boasts The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, as its former president, is just one such club in the area, whilst the Wentworth Golf Club for golf enthusiasts is within easy reach. Windsor Castle, which most recently hosted the royal wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is on its doorstep, along with the three-Michelin starred restaurants The Fat Duck and the Waterside Inn, and the two-Michelin starred restaurant, The Hand and Flowers.

Furthermore, families flock to the area for its plethora of excellent state, independent and public schools, including the private Lambrook School and Charters School, which have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. In addition, the internationally acclaimed Eton College is within close proximity of Ascot.  For the growing number of international families moving to the area, Ascot also boasts a number of international schools including The American School (TAIS) and the American Community School (ACS).

With so much on offer, Ascot has become increasingly popular among home purchasers. Millgate is helping to meet this demand with Kingswood, its 22-acre-development comprising beautifully crafted, detached and semi-detached luxury homes, as well as a collection of 21 apartments.

Prices start at Kingswood at £750,000 for a two-bedroom apartment and £999,950 for a three-bedroom semi-detached home. For further information please visit www.kingswood-ascot.com  or call the sales offices on 01344 870 325.
