Why Maidenhead?

The River Thames flows through a variety of settlements, from busy city centres to the quieter countryside. As it ambles down towards the middle of its stretch you can find the popular town of Maidenhead.

The towns beginning can be traced from a chapel located by the river and since then the area has only grown to be a great place to live for commuters, families and those that have just got onto the property ladder.

From beautiful period properties full of charm and character, located along tree lined residential roads, to contemporary new build apartments with the town on your doorstep, Maidenhead has properties to cater for most.
