The Development

Designed exclusively for the over 70s, this development comprises one and two bedroom apartments with numerous communal facilities such as a Club Lounge, a Well-being Suite* and a bistro-style restaurant* which serves freshly prepared food daily. With flexible support packages* that can be tailored to suit your needs and management on site 24 hours a day, Rutherford House has everything you need to relax and enjoy your retirement.


Chalfont St Peter is a picturesque village with plenty to offer retirees both within the village and the surrounding area. Moreover, Rutherford House is conveniently located on Gold Hill East, close to the village centre, placing a variety of local amenities within easy walking distance. Goldhill Common, a stunning area of open green space and trees of some 33 acres, is literally opposite the entrance to the development – ideal for an early evening stroll or a summer picnic with the grandchildren. Market Place which leads onto Gold Hill East, less than 200 metres from Rutherford House, forms the village’s main ‘High Street’.
