Rickmansworth is always a popular place to buy due to the excellent transport links, including easy access to the M25 and fast train links via the Met Line or the Chiltern Railway line into London. The area also benefits from outstanding primary & secondary school options making it a popular choice for families. As we wait to see if the stamp duty holiday is extended, we have had a strong level of deals agreed in January, showing there is still demand.
