For home-buyers wanting the best of both town and country living, Odyssey Place ideally situated in the Thameside market town of Maidenhead offers the perfect solution ..
The proportion of homebuyers living in London is likely to experience a decline for the first time in the 21st century, according to PWC. Drivers of this exodus include city-dwellers who are rethinking their living situations in light of the pandemic. With this in mind, those looking to relocate in favour of more rural dwellings should look no further than Odyssey Place by Montreaux. Ideally situated in Thameside market town of Maidenhead, Odyssey Place benefits from the best of both town and country; offering a sought after selection of private outside spaces, the convenience of a thriving town, verdant landscapes and superb travel connections into the city on the doorstep.
Launching on Saturday 22nd May , Odyssey Place comprises a stunning collection of one and two- bedroom apartments. Recognising the growing need for space, each and every apartment has been designed to offer generous internal layouts, paired with a high-quality specification – truly showcasing Montreaux’s meticulous attention to detail. With the added benefit of being just minutes away from Maidenhead’s town centre, this scheme offers a real sense of convenience.
David Burke, Chief Executive of Montreaux comments: “We’re thrilled to announce the launch of the two new show apartments at Odyssey Place. Maidenhead has long been considered a hub for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of London, but whom still wish to benefit from the city’s vast employment opportunities and buzzing social scene. Thankfully, Maidenhead enjoys exceptional travel connections – by road and rail – meaning those who do need to commute or socialise can do so without compromising their desire for a slower-paced life.”
The two two-bedroom show apartments at Odyssey Place have been designed to maximise natural light and reflect the way purchasers want to live their lives today. Both properties also come complete with large terraces, and have been thoughfully designed by Montreaux’s in-house team.
Brid Hesse, Customer Services Manager at Montreaux comments on the design: “Our focus for the respective show-apartments was to be as sustainable as possible. There is certainly more awareness around the subject of sustainability, and here at Montreaux, we try to do our bit for the planet.” She continues: “We live in such a throwaway society where everything is disposable. We firmly believe that if something is still stylish and functional, we can recycle or repurpose it. The properties are already built with energy efficiency as a key consideration, so it seemed pertinent for the design team to continue this philosophy.”
As is synonymous with Montreaux’s sterling reputation for providing high-quality homes, the apartments at Odyssey Place have been designed to a high standard.
