We have launched The Croft, a collection of 24 superb two, three and four-bedroom houses and 16 two-bedroom apartments in the quaint village of Binfield. Offering the benefits of idyllic village living, The Croft is just a six-minute drive from Bracknell, which has undergone a £240m regeneration programme.
Located in the royal county of Berkshire, known for its great schools, breath-taking landscapes and great connectivity, The Croft comprises a variety of homes to choose from, ensuring buyers of all types - from young professionals to families and downsizers - can find exactly what they're looking for. Its idyllic rural surroundings will appeal to those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of bigger towns while benefitting from the fantastic transport links.

They feature high-quality kitchens equipped with integrated Siemens appliances. All houses benefit from outdoor space in the form of private turfed rear gardens, where residents can relax after a busy day or entertain family and friends. Selected homes at The Croft have garages, and all homes boast allocated private parking.
