The Surrey Hills are one of the most beautiful locations on our little island – even the Government agrees, awarding it the title of an Area of Outstanding Beauty way back in 1958. It is one of the finest spots in England! With rolling hills, an abundance of woodland and deep valleys that reveal themselves to you at the last moment, this place really takes your breath away.
So it is not too surprising that the Surrey Hills and surrounding areas have become such a hot spot amongst property hunters, particularly those coming from London. As estate agents with property near Upper Longcross to Virginia Water, Barton Wyatt thought they would take a closer look at the popularity of this place.
Why Is It Perfect for Londoners?
For London commuters, the Surrey Hills are the dream place to live. Leaving the city to retreat to the calm, stunning countryside after a day of work is certainly a treat that shouldn’t be taken lightly! With frequent trains in and out of London, ranging from around half an hour to an hour journeys, the travel isn’t strenuous, and the rewards are huge.
More Reasons to Live Here
There are a whole bunch of reasons as to why people chose to live in the Surrey Hills. Aside from its natural beauty, there are also opportunities for great vineyards (areas of the Hills have the same soil as in Champagne, France), some gorgeous opera houses nestled in between thick areas of woodland and a whole lot of artist appeal. In fact, many famous artists, such as Hugh Thackeray Turner and Charles Voysey, worked in a few of the many arts and crafts houses that litter the Hills.
The area is also in close proximity to both Gatwick and Heathrow, meaning that you have the rest of the world at your doorstep. There are also an abundance of great schools and the open, fresh spaces make it an ideal setting for raising children, away from the hustle and bustle of modern day living.
As with any desirable location, the prices of homes in The Surrey Hills are fairly steep and continue to rise along with the rest of the country’s house prices. It is, in fact, the most expensive of the Areas of Outstanding Beauty, which just goes to show how incredible a location it is. The average sale price of a property in this area is £904,426. But can you even put a price on the kind of life that the Surrey Hills has to offer? We don’t think so.
