Local information
The Reading University area is situated just east of Reading centre and stretches between the main campus on the Shinfield road (A327) and the Wokingham road (A329) offering easy access of both the M4 and A329 motorways. This highly sought after suburb has a wide range of local amenities including Reading’s top schools, Reading College, the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading bowls club, shops, gardens, parks and sports facilities. Some of Reading’s most prestigious roads and conservation areas fall in this area with a variety of period properties on offer.
The property is set in a road with a Royal history. Alexandra Road is named after Princess Alexandra who was married in 1863 to Queen Victoria’s eldest son, Edward, later becoming Queen Alexandra when he came to the throne as Edward VII in 1901. She was the daughter of King Kristian IX of Denmark, hence Denmark Road, and was a popular figure, endearing herself to the British people through her charity work.
