Home Listing


Beautifully designed, conveniently situated, and within easy reach of the capital; these are all qualities Shanly Homes’ new development, Drake Lodge has to offer. Situated in the charming town of Amersham - where famed British Romcom, Four Weddings and a Funeral was filmed - Drake Lodge is set to launch off-plan on the 15th October. These stunning apartments will attract buyers from far and wide; and with Help to Buy and the Government’s Stamp Duty Holiday available on a number of homes, prospective buyers have the opportunity to own an affordable home, without compromising on location.


Occupying a prime position in the much sought-after market town of Amersham, Drake Lodge offers an exclusive collection of just eight one and two-bedroom homes, providing the ideal setting for town centre living, but with the added benefit of The Chiltern Hills – An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - right on the doorstep. With fantastic travel links, residents can reach London Marylebone in just 32 minutes via overground service, and Kings Cross St Pancras in under an hour via the underground.

Matthew Brazier, Sales Director at Shanly Homes comments:


 “Drake Lodge offers buyers a unique opportunity to purchase a modern apartment, set in a terrific location and, most importantly, they are highly affordable - as many of these elegant homes are available with Help to Buy and will benefit from the Stamp Duty holiday if priced below £500,000. The town itself has much to offer, with a number of great leisure amenities, countryside views, and fantastic rail links into London in beyond.”


The homes here have been crafted with buyers’ needs in mind - maximising space and light, without compromising on luxury or style. Providing the heart of the home, the open plan living areas are well-equipped with a range of modern appliances, fixtures, and finishes which reflect Shanly Homes’ discerning attention to detail.

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 of which are just minutes from home. For a bite to eat or drink, residents can visit Gilbey’s Old Amersham, or The Artichoke, where they will find something to suit all tastes.  Shopping and leisure opportunities are nearby too; with the new town hosting an array of high street favourites, independent retailers and Amersham’s premier Leisure Centre, ‘The Chiltern Pools and Gym’. Notably, the town has an exciting claim to fame, with the hit 1994 chick flick, Four Weddings and a Funeral, being filmed in Amersham’s very own ‘The Kings Arms’ and ‘The Crown’ hotel.


The perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, Amersham is ideally situated in the heart of the Chiltern Hills – an expanse of green space stretching 45 miles across Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, and Bedfordshire. For outdoor pursuits, residents can walk for miles in this verdant oasis, or alternatively, enjoy The River Misbourne – which flows across Great Missenden, Amersham, and the Chalfonts to Denham.  

Commuters are well catered for here, with Amersham Station only a nine-minute walk away, giving access to the Capital in as little as 32 minutes. By road, the M25 is only 5.5 miles away with links to the M40. High Wycombe, Hemel Hempstead, and Watford are all reachable by car in under half an hour.


With Help to Buy available on selected plots, there has never been a better time to find your new home at Drake Lodge. And now, with the current Stamp Duty holiday available on homes priced up to £500,000, you could be even closer than you think to buying your dream home.
