We opened our independent agency, Hurst Estate Agents in Aylesbury back in 1993. The business has grown beyond all expectations since then and we now provide specialist, professional services to the residential sales and lettings market right across The Chilterns.
Quality of service, honesty and integrity has always been at the heart of the business and our many repeat customers are testimony to this. We today offer a diverse range of services including, residential sales, lettings, village and country homes, new homes, property management, block and estate management.
Aylesbury is the county town of Buckinghamshire and dates back to the early 4th century BC. The town's population has grown from 28,000 in the 1960's to over 58,000 in 2011 due in the main to new housing developments, built to ease pressure on the capital, and to move people from the crowded inner city areas to more favorable locations. Aylesbury is surrounded by some stunning countryside with the beautiful back drop of the Chiltern Hills.
Aylesbury town centre is currently being redeveloped as part of the £100 million Waterside project. When this is completed there will be 260,000 sq ft (24,000 m2) of new retail floor space and 1,100 new jobs created. A Waitrose supermarket opened opposite the Waterside Theatre in August 2013, along with a Travelodge Hotel. Branches of Wagamama and Nando's restaurants opened on 'The Exchange' in February 2014, next to the Odeon cinema on Exchange Street. A branch of Zizzi is also expected to open in early 2015, as part of a council plan to revitalise the 'Waterside' area.
Aylesbury is home to one College of General Further Education (Aylesbury College), three grammar schools, two community upper schools, an academy, a university technical college and a host of primary schools.
The town is served by Aylesbury railway station and Aylesbury Vale Parkway railway station meaning London Marylebone can be reached in under an hour.
