Bracknell in Berkshire developed as a new town after the Second World War, to cater for commuters and those moving out of London's suburbs. It enjoys excellent rail links with the capital's Waterloo station, which is around 30 miles to the east. The town is handy for the M3 and M4 motorways and both Heathrow and Gatwick airports are within easy reach.
The Bracknell area is home to around 110,000 people. Property prices are on the high side, reflecting the town's popularity with commuters.
Much of the housing stock dates from the 1960s, with large estates of terraced and semi-detached houses extending beyond the town centre. Bracknell has plenty of green open space and a network of pedestrian walkways, leading to the well-known local joke that it has "more underpasses than trees".
Bracknell's most expensive and spacious homes, set in leafy surroundings, can be found in neighbourhoods such as Yew Corner, Kilnside, Enborne Gardens and Rye Close. You'll find more middle-of-the-range properties in places such as Perry Way, Boxford Ridge and Ladybank. Try Horndean Road, Rectory Close, Ludlow, or Holbeck for more modest homes at the most competitive prices for the area.
