    Hi Alex

    Looks like Chloe has beaten me to it! As well as Martyn (who we would also recommend) you may wish to speak to Adrian Alder of Herrington Associates who can be reached on 01494 452339. http://www.herringtons.co.uk.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Alice

    I see you are still looking at your options. Either town is pefectly suitable for a young family but you will find Rickmamsworth has a slightly more London suburb type feel, perhaps a little less countryfied in attitude.

    Dont despair with the property search, everyone is finding it tough at the moment. There are good properties out there but you just need to know where and how to look and also have a lot of time on your hands to do it!! We are currently buying a house for a client locally who is in a very similar situation to you — we found the house privately off market for them, thus avoiding the issue of competiton from other buyers. Its not easy to do, but in this market you have to approach things differently to get what you want.

    If you want any further help, do let me know – very happy to help!

    in reply to: Moving to Amersham #4936

    Hi Alice – Its a daunting move, no doubt about it. However I think most of the fear is that of the unknown. Amersham isn’t really ‘out in the sticks’. You can be in Marylebone in 30 minutes on the Chiltern Turbo and a large proportion of people that live in the area are ‘ex Londoners’ that have moved for the excellent State schooling (and it is excellent). You will encounter similar people in Amersham to the more leafy parts of London (Wimbledon Village, Barnes, even Hampstead etc) – generally families with teenage kids. You may wish to read up on HS2 which (if built) will pass close to Old Amersham (not so close to Amersham on the Hill) although there will be considerable disruption during the building of it.

    You may also want to consider Beaconsfield and Gerrards Cross which have a similar demographic to Amersham, although house prices are higher. Both lovely towns with more London style boutique type shops (Particularly in Beaconsfield).

    Pay close attention to the school catchment areas if that is the main driver behind your move as competition is fierce for school places and you want to give yourself the best chance.

    Hopefully that helps a little, but I’m sure it has thrown up numerous other questions! Feel free to ask away…..

    Best wishes
