property description

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.

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 center, 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 meters from Rutherford House, forms the village’s main ‘High Street’.
