Caversham: Country, River & Urban Vibrance
Set to the north of Reading town centre, Caversham is a gateway to Oxfordshire and the Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty. With a hive of independent shops, bars and restaurants, yet minutes’ walk from Reading main line station, set on the banks of the River Thames, it is easy to see why Muddy Stilettos voted Caversham “Best Places to Live, Berkshire” 2022
Country meets Rock ‘n Roll: Whilst the famous annual Reading Festival is held on the Caversham borders, each August Bank Holiday, The Fox & Hounds on Gosbrook Road played host to a gig by “The Nerks” in April 1960, better known as John Lennon & Paul McCartney. And it’s not just the Chiltern Hills that provides breathtaking scenery, an amble along the Thames Path, a walk-through Bugs Bottom, or a trip to Mapledurham are equally great for the soul.
Local Amenities: Caversham has that vibe, and a perfect blend of history, local indie shops, clubs and socials, something for everyone. For the outdoor adventures young and old, Caversham lakes offers Paddleboarding, Inflatable obstacle course, beach, and wild swims. For the more sedate amongst us, Thames Lido a respectfully restored Edwardian swimming baths is a little more opulent. The Rowing Club, Caversham Cricket Club, The Caversham Golf Club. Quuen Annes and Caversham Prep are independent, plus an array of desirable primary schools including The Hill Primary, Caversham Primary, At Annes, Emmer Green, The Heights to name but a few.
Property Market: Caversham is home to some of the most desirable roads in the area, from The Warren on the riverside, up St Peters Hill and into Caversham Heights, glorious turn of the century (20th) palacial detached residence. Lower Caversham is predominantly a mixture of Victorian Terrace Homes, mainly terraced, two and three bedrooms. Caversham Park Village, a 1960s built development has three- and four-bedroom semi and detached homes, several of which have been extended over the years. With an average price of £608,276 in the previous 12 months, Caversham does command a premium for Reading, but with 429 trains a day, as quick as 23 minutes into London, but with everything you could desire on your doorstep, we can assure you it is worth it.
