From our prominent office we cover the Coulsdon, Old Coulsdon, Purley, Netherne on The Hill, Hooley, Woodmansterne and Chipstead areas which are situated on the southern boundary of Greater London in Surrey. The area offers easy access to central London with fast rail links, the M25 and M23, Gatwick and Heathrow airports and the channel ports within close reach, yet still retains a feeling of semi-rural tranquillity with the North Downs on the doorstep, a feature which the local communities have fought to preserve.
The town of Coulsdon offers a wealth of local shops, restaurants and amenities making property in the area popular with people of all ages. The outdoor spaces of Farthing Downs, Kenley Common and Coulsdon Common are ideal for walking and equestrian pursuits. There is also access to both state and private schools and a range of recreational facilities including golf courses and sports clubs.
To the south lies the pretty village of Old Coulsdon, which is focussed around the village green, with a small parade of local shops and several listed buildings including a Grade I listed church. Travelling further south on the A23 is the thriving community of Netherne-on-the-Hill, an urban redevelopment occupying 180 acres of greenbelt, offering a balance between countryside living and modern amenities.
The areas are ideally placed for commuters set just within the M25/M23 and served by three mainline railway stations; Coulsdon Town, Coulsdon South and Woodmansterne, providing links to central London, Gatwick and the south coast.
Purley provides spacious homes in a green environment and is renowned for the prestigious Webb and Woodcote Estates which offer the best of country and city life in a designated conservation area. Purley is an ideal environment for commuters and families wishing to take advantage of the renowned state and private schools in the locality. These include John Fisher, Wilsons, St. David’s, Laleham Lea and Cumnor House. The town offers a range of shopping amenities, a swimming pool, library and recreational facilities with Purley Sports Club, Dynamics Gym and LA Fitness within the area.
Chipstead offers the classic features of a country village with a beautiful Norman church, village pond and green with the added benefit of some 30 local clubs and societies for all age groups ranging from sports clubs to Fine Arts. The growth of the sports clubs is a particular feature and largely benefits the younger members of the community with football, cricket, rugby, tennis, badminton and bowls keenly supported. Each year the village hosts three major events which attract visitors from near and far and include the Village Fair and Flower Festival in July, Guy Fawkes celebrations and a refreshment point for the annual London-Brighton Bike Ride
