Why move to Beaconsfield?
With a varied range of property types to suit all needs and tastes, Beaconsfield is an excellent choice for those looking to buy or rent in the historic county of Buckinghamshire. It is ideally placed for exploring all that the county has to offer, from the nearby towns of Amersham and High Wycombe to the scenic landscapes of the Chilterns.
A little bit of history
Beaconsfield takes its name from the old English for ‘beech tree’ after the woodlands that covered the area in Saxon times and grew up around a major crossroads, where St Mary & All Saints Church still stands at the heart of the old town today.
Architecture and property
Beaconsfield’s old and new towns combine to offer a mix of properties, with everything from character cottages to executive family homes to smart contemporary apartments. To the south the old town is characterised by its medieval and Georgian properties, while the new town in the north is made up in the main of sprawling modern mansions alongside a smattering of Arts & Crafts and 1920s mock Tudor properties.
The town’s restaurant scene is vibrant, with a varied range of cuisines catering for all tastes. Restaurants in Beaconsfield include popular national chains, such as Prezzo and Brasserie Blanc, tastes of Asia at Jampee Thai and Achimi, and the Crazy Bear, for an experience like no other taking in contemporary British fare in luxurious surroundings. For local beers or a Sunday roast try the Royal Standard of England, which lays claim to the title of oldest pub in Britain.
Surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside, Beaconsfield is the ideal location for those seeking fresh air and open space. The Chiltern Hills Area of Natural Beauty boasts dramatic scenery in the form of heavily wooded hillsides and many opportunities for walking, cycling and other outdoor pursuits. There are several public parks and recreation grounds within the town itself for families to enjoy.
