A Recent Housing History of Aylesbury
The market town of Aylesbury has a wealth of history and lies within the county of Buckinghamshire.
Since the 1980’s Aylesbury has seen a huge explosion is new housing, with the introduction of Waternead, where housing styles were based upon those of New England in the U.S. to Buckingham Park, a mixture of conventionally designed properties coupled with apartment blocks, social housing and a central community area comprising shops and small businesses.
To the south-west of the town is Fairford Leys, again a large development of houses and apartments to meet all accommodation needs and with a thriving “village centre” that boasts a renowned Chinese restaurant, other fast food outlets and other shops. The key point of note regarding Fairford Leys is that it was the last major housing development, in Aylesbury, to be built without the requirement of social housing.
Recently, Aylesbury has seen the addition of Berryfields, to the west of the town. A major development that includes an Academy School, lots of green space and play areas, link road to Buckingham Park. The beauty about Berryfields, and Exemplar Park which lies opposite, is its access to the A41 and the recent addition of Aylesbury Parkway Station.
Aylesbury has residential areas surrounding the town centre that all offer something different. To the east of the town are the areas known as Bedgrove, Turnfurlong, Stoke Grange and Broughton, all with local schools, shops, doctors surgeries etc, while to the south you have Walton Court, The Willows, Southcourt and Prebendal Farm. To the north there is the aforementioned Watermead, Bierton Park and Manor Park.
All-in-all, there is a property out there for everyone, from studio flats through to grand detached homes overlooking a lake.
Whatever you’re looking for, in your next home, Aylesbury has it, so come and have a look.
