Families enjoy up-market house price returns at Kingswood, Buckinghamshire

17th April 2016 Print

Homes in market towns are continuing to command a premium over neighbouring areas according to the latest research from Lloyds Banking Group revealing that living in a market town can see house prices rise 11% higher than their county average. For buyers looking for a home in the popular commuter market town of High Wycombe, housebuilder Bellway has now launched an impressive collection of two, three, four and five bedroom homes at Kingswood, ideal for first-time buyers, second steppers and growing families keen to secure a good investment as well as a perfect home.

Located in a leafy neighbourhood, Kingswood offers a selection of modern homes, finished to a high quality specification. The 42 homes are set within the grounds of an old school, which still has an area of woodland retained for the enjoyment of all. Kingswood is nestled within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, making the homes particularly appealing. Features include traditional redbrick exteriors and all homes benefit from garages or off-street parking. Interiors incorporate energy efficient windows and lighting, open-plan living spaces and contemporary bathrooms.

Zoe Dobbs, Sales Manager at Bellway Homes North London, comments: “Families continue to be attracted to the community spirit associated with living in a market town and with affordable prices, Kingswood is a great opportunity for first-time buyers, young families and even downsizers to invest in a new property that will be a great investment in the long-term.

“Not only are the properties beautifully designed and well-proportioned, they are ideally located for schools, commuting and leisure opportunities, with the surrounding countryside around the development perfect for getting away from the hustle and bustle.”

The new two-bedroom homes, the Downley, feature spacious living, a separate kitchen and a contemporary family bathroom. On the ground floor, the kitchen comes complete with built-in Zanussi electrical goods, while the lounge at the rear of the property benefits from French doors opening on to the garden. On the first floor, two spacious double bedrooms share a bathroom which is large enough to accommodate a bath and separate walk in shower.

The vibrant town of High Wycombe is host to an outdoor market three times a week, through the semi-pedestrianised area of the Georgian High Street, with specialist markets taking place throughout the year. A broad range of big name brands and independent boutiques, cafés and restaurants can be found in the Eden Shopping Centre, as well as at the Chilterns Shopping Centre, with larger supermarkets less than 10 minutes’ drive away.

One of the main attractions of the area for families is the great range of well-regarded schools near these new homes, including Highworth Combined School & Nursery, Kings Wood School and Nursery, Wycombe High School (for girls), the Royal Grammar School (for boys) and Sir William Ramsay School. Kingswood will also encompass a brand new day centre, to be built and managed by South Bucks Hospice.

Kingswood benefits from excellent road connections with easy access to the M40 linking to the M25, the A40 for London, and the A413. High Wycombe Railway Station is five minutes’ drive from Kingswood, with frequent services to Bicester North, Banbury, Aylesbury, Wembley and London Marylebone. For international travel, Heathrow Airport is located less than 30 minutes by car from Heathrow Airport.

Prices for the new homes at Kingswood range from £339,995 for a two bedroom house, to £689,995 for a five-bedroom house. Help to Buy is also available on selected properties. For further sales information, visit
