Escape to the country from Pimlico with a patio to a spacious Surrey abode…

14th September 2016

The urge to flee the crush and anxiety of the city life is as strong as ever. As you strap-hang on the tube, squeeze onto the bus, struggle to park the car near your house, remember that two out of three Londoners are dreaming of moving to the countryside.

According to research by estate agent Strutt and Parker approximately 66,000 households left the capital — the highest number since 2007, with a third of those planning to stay within the South-East.

Highlighting the jump from the city to the country, a recent report by the Department for Transport has stated that commuting is continuing to rise year on year with 57% of trips by rail (160,000 per year) made for this reason.

Denise Stewart, Sales & Marketing Director of luxury property developer, Antler Homes, says,

“It’s no surprise that many people are looking towards pastures greener, with affordability the major driver. There’s such a big price differential, and with a short commute into London, you can get so much more for your money.”

“Here at Antler Homes we are witnessing an increase of city dwellers looking for their dream property across the counties we operate in such as Berkshire and Surrey, citing a combination of proximity to London and sumptuous surroundings as the clinching factor.”

Indeed, trains from Claygate in Surrey run frequently and take around half an hour to reach bustling Waterloo, making it the perfect commuter village. Handily situated a five-minute drive from Claygate rail station, and a short drive from the M25, Antler Homes’ Lansdown Place development is the ultimate place to live in the heart of this charming village.

The two six-bedroom houses are perfectly located to access the amenities of the village, in addition to nearby Esher and Kingston-upon-Thames. Positioned on a private road, and with all the luxurious details Antler’s customers have come to expect, such as underfloor heating, a double garage and a custom-built kitchen, buyers can rest assured that their property will be a blissful haven and escape from the commotion of the City.
