Young families, young couples and singles now account for the largest proportion of homebuyers in the new build property market, with young families in particular making up 30% of new build homeowners, preferring a new build property over a second-hand one. 

Providing an option perfect for this demographic, with stunning homes in a good location for families and access to fantastic transport links for young professionals, Shanly Homes is preparing to launch its latest Aylesbury development, Merchants Place, on Saturday 30th January.

Situated on the edge of Aylesbury’s ancient market town, Merchants Place comprises a contemporary collection of 31 two and three bedroom houses. Enjoying a central location just a 20-minute walk from the town centre, residents have access to a thriving high street, Friars Square Shopping Centre, the well-served Aylesbury Train Station, and nine top-rated schools and colleges all within walking distance from home, proving the ideal place for a broad spectrum of buyers to put down roots. 

Martin Brown, Sales Manager at Shanly Homes, comments: “We’re looking forward to launching our second Aylesbury development at the end of the month. Aylesbury is such a terrific location and offers something that will strike a chord with many different buyers, from first-time buyer professionals and couples to growing families. 

“And with the added bonus of the new Help to Buy scheme available for First Time Buyers on many of the properties at Merchants Place, we’re thrilled to be able to be able to offer that extra support to families, couples and singles looking to get take their first steps onto the property ladder in 2021.”

Boasting an enviable combination of practicality and style, the homes at Merchants Place have been thoughtfully designed to create stylish and hassle-free homes that come complete with a superior specification for which Shanly Homes is renowned. Many properties benefit from open-plan living/dining areas, serving as the natural hub of the home, with French windows opening onto private rear gardens. 

Purchasers will have a choice of a modern combined kitchen/dining area or a separate kitchen depending on which house suits their needs, and all come equipped with a number of premium brand integrated appliances, including a full height fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Upstairs, master bedrooms come complete with fitted wardrobes and a ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom, whilst further bedrooms offer adaptable spaces for the changing needs of residents, with space for a home office or children’s playroom. All homes also benefit from two parking spaces.

Aylesbury’s historic town centre caters for everyone, with a variety of independent boutiques and high street favourites at Friars Square, Hale Leys and Aylesbury Shopping Park.  For an evening tipple, Aylesbury has a variety of bars and eateries, including ‘Miya Japanese Grill and Bar’, ‘The Works’, and ‘Grill Steakhouse’. The town also plays host to a number of popular pubs and bars, including the Old Millwrights Arms, The Harrow Pub, and The Manor – which is the only rooftop bar in Buckinghamshire. 

Parents at Merchants Place can rest assured that their children have access to some fantastic education options on the doorstep, with nine schools rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted – including Sir Henry Floyd Grammar School – within walking distance to the development. Families will also be well-placed for weekend adventures, as Aylesbury enjoys some of the country’s most beautiful countryside close to the Chiltern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the perfect location for walks with children or four-legged friends.

Perfect for professionals looking to commute, Aylesbury is home to unparalleled travel connections via rail and road.  Aylesbury Station is less than a mile away, providing regular services to London Marylebone Station in an hour. For those travelling by car, the A41 and A418 offer access to the M40 and M1 motorways, leading to Oxford, Bicester and Luton. For international travel, London Luton Airport is just 24 miles away.

Prices at Merchants Place start from £305,000 for a two-bedroom home and £339,950 for a three-bedroom house. For further information on the homes available, visit or call 01296 761260.
