Help and advice on buying property in Aylesbury and the surrounding villages

If you are considering moving to Aylesbury or the surrounding villages, Stacks Buckinghamshire can provide invaluable advice to ensure that you get the right house, for the right price, in the right location, on the best terms and with the minimum of stress.

Aylesbury is the County town for Buckinghamshire, and has a plethora of shopping, social and sports facilities, the Waterside Theatre, grammar schools, a college and campuses for two universities Bucks New & Bedford. There is also mainline railway stations, Aylesbury Town and Aylesbury Vale Parkway, with services to London, Birmingham and Oxford.

Our clients may be moving some distance, or be local; they may be too busy or not know where to begin;  they may be unable to find a suitable house or have too much choice – see our case studies to see how we’ve helped people in your situation.

Speak to Stacks Buckinghamshire today to learn more about why Aylesbury is a town to explore when considering a move out of London.

Trains on the Chiltern Line from Aylesbury Vale Parkway is out of town, to the NorthWest, and goes into London Marylebone in under an hour.  Parking at Aylesbury Vale is often easier than Aylesbury Station itself (or Aylesbury Town Station), which is located in the town centre.  There are plans to link these stations to the EastWest Rail Oxford – Cambridge are underway.  Some commuters travel to Tring to catch the train to Euston in 40 mins.

Aylesbury is on the A41 out of London, and just north of the Chilterns, equidistant from M40 & M1. 

Going north & north-west out of Aylesbury towards Whitchurch & Waddesdon, the villages of Weedon & Hardwick have plenty of characterful properties with easy access to the stations.  There is a lot of growth out this direction of Aylesbury, providing properties at all price points.

Milton Keynes  is an easy commute from this region, and North east from Aylesbury towards Leighton Buzzard lie the villages of Bierton, Rowsham, Hulcott  Wingrave & Wing.

South & East of Aylesbury are the Chiltern Hills, the villages before then are Stoke Mandeville and its hospital, Weston Turville & Aston Clinton, Buckland & Aston Abbotts. For more in this direction see Great Missenden, Princes Risborough & Wendover & East towards Tring

West & Southwest from Aylesbury heads towards Haddenham & Thame, including the villages of Stone, Hartwell & Bishopstone.  The HS2 route is on this side of the town, but impact on prices has already happened here.

Buckinghamshire has a grammar system, and Aylesbury is home to 3 grammar schools, providing a huge draw for parents invested in the quality of their children’s  education.  There is a grammar school of  each ‘type’– Aylesbury Grammar School caters for Boys only. Girls can attend Aylesbury High School & Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School is co-ed. 

Catchment is key for grammar schools, so ensure your househunt factors this in if it is important to you.  Secondary schools in the area also have some excellent reputations, but catchment is again key.

Private schools in the wider area include Ashfold, Swanbourne House & Griffin House, co-educational prep schools, and the many private schools in the Chilterns & Milton Keynes are also easily accessible.

Aylesbury sits on the site of an Iron Age hillfort that itself dates from around 650BC. The fort was rediscovered during excavations in the town centre in 1985.  The Market Square has several important buildings including the Corn Exchange which was opened in 1865, and the 18th Century County Hall and Courthouse. A balcony, now removed, was used to publicly execute criminals!

The Bucks County Show is an annual highlight for the whole area, and country pursuits are easily found in the Vale of Aylesbury and the Chiltern Hills.  The Waterside Theatre provides a fabulous venue for touring shows & events throughout the year.

The HS2 route is to the Southwest & West of the town.  EastWest Rail may link to the Aylebsury Vale Parkway  north/northwest eventually.
