Persimmon Homes


Thame is a market town that has grown out of a rich Anglo Saxon and ecclesiastical history, situated in The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. While time has changed the transport links and facilities Thame enjoys, the character of the town centre remains characterful with ancient buildings rubbing shoulders with more recent additions from the Georgian and Victorian periods, as well as many beautiful new homes in Thame.

Visit the beautiful Thame Park, where the house incorporates parts of the dissolved Thame Abbey with an interior that boasts one of the earliest English examples of the Italian renaissance. See the parish church of St. Mary, thought to be on the site of the first Christian church built in Thame in 675 AD by order of the King of Mercia. Then start making your own history by moving into your own new home in Thame.
