Set in the picturesque Chilterns, Amersham is a vibrant town which offers a superb balance between commuter convenience (the Metropolitan and Chiltern lines offering prompt service to Central London are located 2.6 miles from the property) and easy access to the surrounding countryside. There are two distinct areas: Old Amersham, set in the valley of the River Misbourne, which contains the 13th century parish church of St. Mary's and several old pubs, coaching inns and boutique shops; and Amersham-on-the-Hill, which grew rapidly around the railway station in the early part of the 20th century which now contains the main shopping area with high street brands such as Waitrose, Marks & Spencers and Boots, as well as a variety of eateries and coffee shops.
The property benefits from easy access to highly regarded schooling at both primary and senior level including the renowned Dr Challoners Grammar Schools. Independent schooling is also well catered for with The Beacon School (Boys) and Heatherton House (Girls) locally for Nursery – Year 8; whilst senior schooling can be found at Berkhamsted School (Boys & Girls), Royal Masonic (Girls) & Pipers Corner (Girls) all within 8 miles from Amersham.
