A taste of life at Horlicks Quarter, Slough

A taste of life at Horlicks Quarter, Slough
30th April 2024

Aspiring homeowners can now get a taste of life at the Horlicks Quarter development in Slough being marketed by SOWN.

Providing a stylish range of affordably priced homes at the redevelopment of the historic Horlicks factory, Abri Homes’ collection of shared ownership apartments offers first-time buyers the opportunity to step onto the property ladder.

Requiring a 5% deposit of £6,475 (for a 35% share) the new range of apartments will open up the market to a wider range of buyers.



The launch of Abri’s new show home in Aquifer House, located at the heart of the wider Horlicks Quarter development close to the iconic Horlicks Factory clocktower, is now offering aspiring homeowners a glimpse into what life is like living in this landmark location.

Opening its doors last weekend, the spacious two-bedroom ground floor apartment has been expertly designed to provide bright open plan living. Featuring Bosch appliances and high-quality specifications throughout, the apartment benefits from an outdoor terrace and views over the beautiful surrounding landscaped gardens.

Designed by Focus, the interior design of the show home has been inspired by the industrial history of the factory. Featuring a warm and inviting neutral colour palette, burnt orange has been used to reflect the colour of bricks, complemented with black elements to create a dynamic and dramatic feel - with touches of green to mirror the vibrant colours of the outdoors inside.



A wide range of materials have been used to create a layered design scheme with natural materials bringing warmth to the colour palette and metal furniture, such as a bronze coffee table, adding to the industrial feel of the space. Recycled materials such as linens, faux leathers and soft velvets feature in soft furnishings throughout the apartment, to create a relaxing and comfortable space.

The interiors have been finished with industrial clocks and black and white striking artwork for a stylish and homely feel.



The wider development features beautiful gardens with tranquil water features which serve as the green heart of the community, with plans for artisan markets, music events and art exhibitions to feature in the green spaces over the coming years. A convenience store, café and nursery also feature within the development, ensuring all residents needs are available.

Peter Hawley of SOWN comments, “We have been delighted to work with Abri on this flagship development which provides much needed shared ownership homes. For many new buyers in London and the Home Counties, where property prices are notoriously high, shared ownership is one of the best and most accessible ways to become a homeowner because, as your financial situation strengthens, you can move towards full ownership through a process called ‘staircasing’. And for those who aren’t looking in Slough but are interested in properties elsewhere in the country, visit the SOWN website to find a wide range of properties – www.sown.co.uk.”
