Once known as the furniture capital of England due to the large number of manufacturers based there, High Wycombe is the largest town in Buckinghamshire with a population of more than 118,500.
Property in High Wycombe ranges from town centre apartments and modern family houses to period properties and semi-detached Victorian houses - in fact, properties covering an extremely wide spectrum.
House prices in High Wycombe tend to be at the high end of the market, due to its lovely location and general affluence, but there are many bargains available if a little renovation work isn't out of the question.
Heavily involved in continual regeneration and environmental development, High Wycombe is ideal for outdoor lovers and boasts excellent facilities, both natural and man-made.
You can enjoy a walk through "The Rye", a wide area of grassland with an artificial lake surrounded by beech wood trees, or follow a nature trail to the town surrounded by the beautiful Chiltern Hills.
Shoppers are well catered for, and the Wycombe Swan Theatre is an ideal venue which hosts many of the country's leading shows. Leisure facilities are plentiful and the interesting architecture makes the town a very attractive destination.
In addition to its excellent connections to the UK motorway network, High Wycombe benefits from a railway station running regular services to London, with a journey time of just 32 minutes. All London airports are less than an hour's drive away.
Its ideal location so close to the capital city, coupled with lovely natural surroundings and a community atmosphere, makes High Wycombe a very desirable area to live. Offering residents the best of both worlds, the town's properties will always be much sought after.
