Living close to a town centre location has always been an appealing factor when it comes to home hunters deciding where they would like to live, a quality that has been made even more appealing following this year’s national lockdown. 

Occupying a prime position just minutes from the centre of Amersham’s New Town, Shanly Homes is proud to unveil its new collection of apartments at Drake Lodge, coming soon. Set in a leafy residential road in the heart of Buckinghamshire, the exclusive apartments are superbly situated to enjoy the benefits of town centre living right on the doorstep, whilst still being in easy reach of the countryside, capital and beyond.

With the very first show home set to launch soon, Drake Lodge comprises an exclusive collection of just eight one and two bedroom apartments. From the development, residents can walk to Amersham’s town centre in just two minutes where they will find everything they need including a Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and Boots Pharmacy.

The stunning two-bedroom show home showcases the meticulous attention to detail and thoughtful design featured in every apartment at Drake Lodge. With the interior designed by New I.D, the show apartment has been planned to maximise space and light with an open-plan kitchen/living/dining area complete with French doors opening onto a terrace. The fully-fitted kitchen comes equipped with integrated Siemens and Bosch appliances, whilst the luxury bathroom offers a sleek high-quality design complete with white sanitaryware and chrome fittings. In addition to this, all homes will also have access to a beautifully landscaped communal garden, as well as an allocated parking space, cycle storage and a lift serving all floors.

Emily Robson, Interior Designer at New I.D, comments: “Drake Lodge is a scheme that is a mix of classic design with contemporary elements. A sophisticated colour palette of neutral tones with colour pops of green and blues have been brought in through the fabrics, artwork and accessories used.”

Martin Brown, Sales Manager at Shanly Homes, comments: “We’re thrilled to be launching the new show home at Drake Lodge this November. 

“This development is in an unrivalled location that will appeal to many buyers – from first-time buyers looking to experience the buzz of a town centre, to downsizers searching for the ease of having everything they need within walking distance. With Amersham just a two minute walk from Drake Lodge and the Old Town close by, there is something to suit everyone’s needs.”

Most apartments at Drake Lodge are also available to purchase through the Government’s Help to Buy scheme, due to change in March 2021, and benefit from the stamp duty holiday, due to end in March 2021.

Amersham enjoys a rich blend of old and new; combining rows of stunning Georgian architecture, picturesque pubs and charming independent boutiques with modern-day shops and facilities – all just minutes from home. Amersham’s New Town is just minutes from Drake Lodge and is home to an array of coffee shops, bakeries and restaurants, as well as a Waitrose and Marks and Spencer. Just across town, the Old Town combines a rich blend of medieval architecture alongside independent boutiques and eateries. Notably, the town has an exciting claim to fame, with the hit 1994 film, Four Weddings and a Funeral, being filmed in Amersham’s very own ‘The Kings Arms’ and ‘The Crown’ hotel.

For commuting, Amersham station is a short nine-minute walk away giving direct access to London Marylebone in as little as 40 minutes. By road, the M25 is only 5.5 miles away with links to the M40, connecting residents to High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead, and Watford in under half an hour.

Prices at Drake Lodge start from £349,950 for a one-bedroom apartment and £465,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. For more information, please call 01494 851303 or visit
