As a nation, we are more concerned with health and wellbeing than ever before, which is reflected in our rising levels of physical activity. The number of people participating in a sport at least once a week increased by 229,400 to 15.97 million between 2015 and 2016, according to research by Sport England. Spitfire Bespoke Homes has recently unveiled a new show home at Glade in the Spinney, an exclusive development in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire. Boasting a variety of different sports clubs, the highly sought-after town is the perfect base for buyers with active lifestyles.
Occupying a secluded and leafy location on a gated private road, Glade in the Spinney is an exclusive collection of seven detached executive properties. Individually designed to offer over 3,000 sq ft of luxuriously appointed accommodation, each home has a minimum of five bedrooms and four bathrooms set over three floors and surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens.
Summer is the perfect time to take up an outdoor sport, as the weather gets warmer and the days get longer.
