Esher provides great base

Esher provides great base

Commuters have been falling over themselves to buy property for sale in Esher in recent years as the Surrey town’s popularity has exploded.

In fact, in 2013 the town was the most sought-after location for Londoners buying property outside of the capital, according to research by Hamptons International.

One obvious reason for this is its superb links with London. As property prices in the City continue to rise, many people are looking to the outskirts and beyond to get more bang for their buck while still remaining within spitting distance of the bright lights and work opportunities that London offers.

On that front, Esher certainly scores big. Situated on the M25 and within a 30-minute train journey into the heart of the capital, you cannot ask for much more location-wise.

But, it is not just location that has set Esher up as a superb place to buy property. The town has all kinds of charms that attract those looking for their ideal home.

One of Esher’s key attractions is Sandown Park racecourse. Horse racing fans will find flat racing throughout the year at one of the UK’s most loved and busiest courses. Sandown also hosts events such as the Buster Lang Classic Car Show and the Toy Collectors’ Fair.

The affluent town is also popular with families due to its excellent schools. Esher Church of England Aided Primary School and Esher Church of England High School have both been praised in Ofsted reports. Meanwhile, the Claremont Fan Court School gives parents an independent schooling option should they wish to consider one.

Esher’s proximity to London also does not mean that it lacks in natural beauty. The town benefits from rural countryside and its River Mole setting, making it truly the best of both worlds as it combines charm and the hustle and bustle of the city in one neat package.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801822872-ADNFCR
