We enjoy a strong presence throughout Elmbridge, with our established team operating out of our Surrey flagship office located on Queens Road in Weybridge. This beautiful area caters for all tastes, with Victorian properties nestled within walking distance of the High Streets, as well as properties on a larger scale; these range from completely refurbished, Grade II listed buildings sitting in acreage through to new-build mansions located on dramatic plots within private estates such as St George’s Hill in Weybridge.
With the many private estates in the area (including St George’s Hill in Weybridge, Burwood Park in Walton, Crowne Estate in Oxshott and Fairmile Park in Cobham), the executive and elusive are attracted to the area for the element of seclusion and privacy it provides. We have a number of famous footballers and ‘wags,’ rugby stars, tennis champs, girl band members and established rock stars; we have TV personalities young and old, as well as world famous stars of the screen. We also have some movers and shakers from the political world choosing to base themselves here…and if high flyers of the executive world are of interest, we also have owners of diamond mines living in St George’s Hill.
Another pull is the wealth of educational opportunities provided in the area. We have some of the best performing schools in the country and, of course, three of the best international schools (Tasis, ACS and ISL) all located in the locality. This is a major draw for anyone who travels the world and wishes to provide their children with a top class education. The schools remain a driving force for people looking in the areas we cover and over the last few weeks we have seen increased activity from relocation agents hired by the corporate companies moving families from overseas to make the most of the education provided within the area.
The area caters for the demands of professional individuals and couples alike, especially those who travel the world frequently, either for business or pleasure. Elmbridge provides an easy loop onto the A3 and access onto the M25. When in Weybridge, you are less than twenty miles from Mayfair (useful if popping to Harrods for a spot of shopping, or perhaps The Ritz for a spot of afternoon tea) and on a fast train it can take as little as 25 minutes from Weybridge into London Waterloo. Saying this, there is plenty of opportunity for retail therapy right her on the doorstep, with Cobham and Weybridge both offering boutique shopping that caters for all tastes.
The area also provides easy access to some truly stunning countryside, whether that be for a stroll in the gardens of Wisley, or taking tea in the grounds of Painshill Park in Cobham; the expanse of the Surrey Hills is just a few minutes away, an easy drive down the A3.
In the last few months we have noticed that a number of our tenants currently in occupation are deciding to renew and stay where they are, rather than incur the cost of moving. The knock-on effect of this trend is that there is a limited amount of property available on the market within the rental sector, so demand is high. If you are considering renting out your property, please do contact me or any member of my Jackson-Stops & Staff Weybridge lettings team, on 01932 859355 or firstname.lastname@example.org; we would be delighted to hear from you.
