Caversham is a residential district of Reading, lying immediately north of the Thames. Caversham is the most affluent part of Reading and has seen a strong resurgence post Covid with high demand and low vacancy rates. This trend is expected to carry on with consumers choosing to shop locally rather than in big cities and town centres.

The property occupies a corner plot on the eastern side of Prospect Street, at the junction with North Street, close to the junction with Church Street and is particularly visible to southbound pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

Nearby occupiers include: Waitrose, Costa and Boots.
