The Town Hall & Corn Exchange is a prominent Victorian building standing in the market place in Hungerford's High Street and there are examples of good-sized semi-detached properties in Church Street. Georgian housing can be found in streets like Bath Road.

You can find plenty of 20th century properties, 1930s and onwards, semi-detached, bungalows and terraces, in places like Woodbury, Crown Mews, Park Street and Templeton Road.

There are various new build developments in the locale; anything from large detached properties in Stag Hill to the new build flats in the High Street.

Properties in Hungerford built in close proximity to the River Kennet, the River Dun and the River Shalbourne, in streets such as Shalbourne Close and North Standen Road, are in an area where flood warnings and alerts are issued from time to time.

If you are concerned that a property you are looking to buy is in a flood risk area, you should consider getting a flood risk report (click for more details).
According to the UK Government's Public Health England, some parts of Hungerford, including streets such as Smitham Bridge Road and Chiltern Way, are in a raised radon area, with properties built there having a higher probability than average of experiencing ground Radon emissions.

The raised Radon area has a maximum radon potential of 1 – 3% (the percentage is the chance of a property being built where Radon emissions might measure above the action level).

If you are concerned that a property you are buying is in an area of raised Radon, please click to visit Public Health England's UK Radon Map. Click also to find out more about Radon, Radon property searches and much more.
Raised levels of noise pollution from roads in the Hungerford area mainly centre around Bath Road and Eddington Hill. Raised levels of noise pollution from railways accompany the streets which are near the railway line as it passes through Hungerford Station on an East-West axis, affecting streets such as Parsonage Lane and Church Street.

BerkshireBerkshire is a county which touches a small part of the borders of West London. It is a home county (because it borders Greater London) and is often called Royal Berkshire because it contains Windsor and Windsor Castle. It hosts a number of iconic UK landmarks such as Ascot (Ascot Racecourse), Wentworth (Golf Course), Sunningdale (Golf Course), Virginia Water and Windsor Great Park and Eton School. Virginia Water was the first postcode area where the average property price exceeded one million.

Like many of the home counties, there are many essentially commuter dormitory settlements which house London workers. Reading (which is Berkshire's county town) in particular is a larger one and is popular because of its very fast rail links with Central London - there are many one-stop services to London Paddington and it is also due to be the western terminus of the Crossrail line.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey involves an examination of the structure of the inside and the outside of a property aimed at pinpointing issues such as subsidence, damp, cracks, infestation and damage. The survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is non-intrusive.

NB If you're a first time buyer, you might wish to click on What is a House Survey to find out more, including what happens during the inspection.

If the Home Buyers Survey shows up any such problems, our appointed surveyor will explain to you what you should do to get more in-depth information about the type and scope of the matter and what is required to fix it.

If you are worried about any defects that you think your property in Hungerford has, we strongly recommend you get a Home Buyers Survey as the cost of remedying the problem might grow to many thousands of pounds as time progresses.

Focus and limitations of the HomeBuyer Report

The HomeBuyer Report service is specifically designed for lay people that want a professional opinion at an economic price for the property they are buying.

It is, therefore, necessarily less comprehensive than a level 3 building survey.

The focus of the surveyor is on assessing the general condition of the main elements of the property you are buying, and identifying and evaluating the particular features that affect its present value and may affect its future resale.

The Building Surveyor's inspection is not exhaustive, and no tests are undertaken. There is, therefore, a risk that certain defects may not be found that would have been uncovered if testing and/or a more substantial inspection had been undertaken.

This is a risk that the client must accept.

However, where there is ‘a trail of suspicion’ the surveyor ‘must take reasonable steps to follow the trail’. These ‘reasonable steps’ may include recommending further investigation.
