The Old Vicarage in Wraysbury is a Grade II Listed family home set in over four acres in total. Its origins lie in the early 15th century; some parts date back to the early 1400s when Henry V was King of England and is almost certainly the oldest residential property in the parish. Much modernised and altered over the years, The Old Vicarage has many original features: fine interior timbers, beamed ceilings and walls, timber floors, leaded casement windows, open fire places, an old tile roof and 17th century chimney.

If commuting’s not for you, and working from home is an option, there are increasingly innovative ways to combine work and leisure at home. You may even be able to create a workspace in your home for less than the cost of your average season ticket. Fantastic work-friendly spaces can be found under the stairs, in a hallway, or even in a cupboard if extending upwards or outwards is not an option.

Spotlight on Beaconsfield – our estate agent’s view: Two annual events in Beaconsfield’s calendar reflect the diversity that the town embraces and celebrates. For one day only, on May 10th each year, Beaconsfield Old Town’s genteel Georgian architecture collides in a time warp with 21st century music, laser lights and all the fun of the fair. It’s a centuries’ old tradition; just one day, but enough for some residents who look forward to the relative tranquillity of the rest of the year, time to relax and enjoy the array of cafes and restaurants offered by both Old and New Beaconsfield alike.

The weekend flashes by and just like that it’s Monday again. The average British worker spends a staggering 11 working weeks every year commuting to and from work, so it’s no surprise to find commuters looking for properties with great transport connections. Simply by moving to a new home in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire or Middlesex for example, they could cut the time and money they spend commuting with significant cost savings over central London property prices.

With July almost over, there’s still time for some simple styling to make the most of the summer. Think of your home as a holiday house, and you'll see it in a whole new light. Ocean shades, sunshine yellows and crisp white woodwork really capture the essence of summer along with beach inspired décor, stripes for a nautical look and the feeling of living in a beach house. Muted colours and serene blues make a room feel more spacious by reflecting light, whilst all over white is instantly refreshing.

Spotlight on Chalfont St Peter – our estate agent’s view: Chalfont St Peter’s roots begin as an ancient Iron Age village but earliest written reference in 949 AD is to Ceadeles Funtan - an Anglo Saxon settlement along the River Misbourne. It has grown to become one of the largest villages in the South East with a population of over 13,000. The village boasts a “vibrant village community with a strong local identity” and this is clearly seen at the Feast Day which takes place on Gold Hill Common each year - a day of real community focus and family fun.
