A + for Surrey property

29th September 2016

Education has long been one of the most influential factors for buyers looking to purchase a new home. Whether buying for investment purposes or as an owner-occupier, proximity to good schools and universities is often at the top of a potential buyer’s list.

Research from Lloyds Bank shows that many parents are willing to pay an average of £53,000 extra to secure homes close to schools with the best academic outcomes. The figure marks a 31% increase on last year. This has led to areas such as Surrey and the Home Counties to grow in terms of buyer interest and residential prices in recent years.

Denise Stewart, Sales and Marketing Director for Antler Homes comments,

“Good educational institutions continue to be a key driver for price growth. Surrey has an abundance of highly performing schools with the University of Surrey ranking in the top 20 in the UK.

“Smart buyers have been pursuing Surrey as an option for a considerable length of time, and with ever-improving transport links to the city and an exceptional quality of life for residents, it is unsurprising that property prices have seen a surge.”

Indeed, house prices in Surrey increased by 12.2% between July 2015 and July 2016, while the UK’s national increase was only 9.1% during the same period. (ONS UK House Price Index)

With this in mind, Chamberlain Place development by Antler Homes is the perfect area to invest in a property. Located in the picturesque Elmbridge district of Surrey, Weybridge has long been one of the southern counties’ most desirable locations.

The area offers schools such as three "outstanding" and "exceptional" primaries, according to Ofsted, in St Charles Borromeo Catholic, Ashley CofE and Cleves. Highly regarded independent schools such as St George’s College and Reed’s dominate the secondary sector, but the state Thamesmead and Heathside are "good". The abundance of educational institutions coupled with a vibrant town centre, wide selection of leisure activities and good transport connections, make Chamberlain Place an ideal location for modern family living.

Each home boasts a spacious Kitchen/ Breakfast/Family area with sliding doors opening into the garden. A luxurious first floor formal living room is complemented by rear facing balcony and the Master bedroom suite has the dressing room of dreams plus en-suite bath and shower room. There are also three further double bedrooms, a large integral garage and a beautiful landscaped garden.

Living at Chamberlain Place in Weybridge you really can enjoy the best of two distinctly different worlds. You have easy access to the beautiful Surrey countryside, exemplified by Painshill Park, Surrey Hills, as well as Bushy Park, Virginia Water Lake and Oxshott Heath. This peaceful theme continues through nearby Wisley Royal Horticultural Society Gardens, Claremont Landscape Garden and Hampton Court Palace.

If you prefer the bright lights and your shopping and entertainment facilities on a grander scale, local towns like Walton-on-Thames and Kingston upon Thames provide them. In addition, London Waterloo and all the attractions of one of the world's great capital cities is just 30 minutes from Weybridge railway station.
