Swindon is a town with an illustrious history; mostly built around its railway. Once popular with rail-workers, it’s now sought-after by people from all walks of life, thanks to its plentiful amenities and excellent transport links. The train station takes commuters to London Paddington in about an hour, not to mention other key locations, like Bristol, Portsmouth and Swansea. Alternatively, Gloucester airport is close by.
As one might imagine, the streets around the train station are always popular with buyers, such as Station Road, Manchester Road and Broad Street. Swindon bus station is also in this area, as are many popular shops and restaurants.
The locations close to Swindon’s schools are also highly regarded. Families looking to buy a property near the top-performing schools should focus on the areas around The Ridgeway School, St Joseph’s Catholic College, or The Swindon Academy. Properties close to The Ridgeway School also have the advantage of being near Ridgeway Leisure Centre, which has a swimming pool.
Swindon’s rental market is particularly strong, with two-bedroomed properties usually being the most popular with tenants. However, there’s plenty of interest for studio apartments and one-bedroomed houses too, and for larger family homes.
Those looking to buy should be aware that house prices have been steadily rising recently; a trend that looks set to continue. The period properties, particularly the Victorian and Edwardian terraces, seldom stay on the market for long, and the 1920s and 1930s semi-detached homes are also desirable. There are also some excellent new-builds, with developers remaining active in the area.
