Follow the foodies and make a move to the Chilterns

12th March 2018 Print

Once considered the ‘larder of London’, instead of sending provisions in to the capital the Chilterns is now drawing foodies out to the country, with a selection of famous, star-quality eateries for all appetites.

Award-winning chef Tom Kerridge owns The Hand & Flowers in Marlow, the first pub to be given two Michelin stars. Just under 15 miles away from High Wycombe is the village of Bray, in which there is the Roux’s Michelin three-star restaurant, The Waterside Inn, and Heston Blumenthal’s renowned Michelin three-star restaurant The Fat Duck.

You don’t have to book a table at a fancy restaurant to enjoy the Chilterns’ food and drink offering. Keen amateur cooks and weekend entertainers will find vineyards, local breweries and farmers’ markets across the area – all helping to attract home owners with impeccable taste.

The Chilterns has become increasingly appealing to house hunters of all flavours, not just gourmands. For those planning a move to the area in 2018, Annington is soon to release two of the final four properties at its popular Woodcock Avenue development, set in the charming village of Walters Ash, near High Wycombe.

On 16th March, two refurbished two-bedroom, semi-detached homes will be released for sale. These homes are rarely available and, with their covetable village setting, are expected to generate a huge amount of interest. Then from 20th April, two three-bedroom, semi-detached, new-build homes will be available to reserve off-plan.

The homes provide excellent links to London, Saunderton and High Wycombe railway stations are both nearby and offer direct services into London in under 40 minutes. Plus, there are good links by road too.

With a large network of walking routes, cycle paths and bridleways to be found on the doorstep, it is another reason why many have chosen to call the Chilterns home.

Sally Parsons, Property Director at Annington said: “For those looking to follow in the foodies’ footsteps, and wishing to make the move to the popular Chilterns area, the next and final phase of homes at Walters Ash will be highly desirable. Based in a stunning setting in a picture-perfect village, we expect buyers to take full advantage of this latest release.”

Prices for the refurbished two-bedroom semi-detached homes at Walters Ash will start from £325,000. To register your interest, email wyc[at]
