Top property professionals approach 100 years of combined experience… determined to make Wilton Park a huge success

29 Sep 2021

With nearly 100 years of combined industry experience, three leading property stalwarts are determined to make a flagship development in Beaconsfield one of the best they’ve ever worked on.

Elaine Stratford, Vicki Noon and Sue Fisher have each built up over 30 years’ experience in housebuilding and all have their individual reasons why Wilton Park will be a superb residential housing scheme. The trio met recently to inspect the exciting progress at the site which has been dubbed ‘the most significant residential project in the town for many years’.

The first two phases at the 100-acre site, accounting for 147 new homes, will be delivered by Bewley Homes, with the award-winning housebuilder having purchased these plots from Inland Homes in 2020. Both companies have worked alongside the council to ensure that the former Ministry of Defence site, acquired in 2014, will be a fitting residential addition to this sought-after part of Buckinghamshire.

Bewley Homes, who started building the first phase of 94 homes in late spring, are looking forward to unveiling a show home later in the year.

Wilton Park will have the distinctive air of a traditional ‘English country estate’ with existing mature trees retained, open grassland and wildflower meadows providing an attractive and tranquil parkland setting. Residents will also benefit from Beaconsfield’s excellent transport links, with trains to London Marylebone in as little as 23 minutes and easy access to junction 2 of the M40 motorway.

In total, 304 new homes will be built on this exclusive development including 79 affordable homes. Forty-six homes existing homes on site will be retained.  Savills is currently marketing the retained homes on behalf of Inland Homes and Hamptons will market homes within the first two phases on behalf of Bewley Homes.

In addition to the much-needed additional homes to the area, the development will also deliver significant investment into local infrastructure, community and education facilities.  Inland Homes is submitting a detailed planning application this month for the early delivery of a community hub, café, two hectares of parkland and a new purpose-built facility for First Place Nursery. Outline planning permission has already been granted for these facilities.

Elaine Stratford, Sales and Marketing Director at Bewley Homes, said: “Having worked in Beaconsfield for many years and living in the local area, I know how special this development is and how sought after the new homes will be.   We are truly excited to be developing the initial phases here with homes styles ranging from 2 bedrooms to 5 bedrooms.  This is a project which the Bewley team is proud and pleased to bring to the market.”

Inland Homes has been committed from the outset to developing Wilton Park to a standard that is in keeping with the area and building a thriving community, says Vicki Noon, Sales and Marketing Director at Inland Homes. She commented: “Wilton Park is the jewel in Inland’s crown and we want local people to be very proud of what is being built here. Our commitment is not just about new homes but to building a community that adds value to the whole Beaconsfield community.”

Sue Fisher, Director at Hamptons, commented: “A development with the potential of Wilton Park doesn’t come around very often so we are naturally very excited by the opportunity.”
