From Wentworth to Esher, the North Surrey area offers country living and high-end lifestyle opportunities, all with the added benefit of London city centre just a short commute away

12 months ago, the world was a completely different place. However, unlike many of the predictions that surrounded the Covid-19 pandemic, the housing market in North Surrey actually benefitted hugely as people realised that they no longer wanted to be cooped up in apartments and small properties in London. We have seen an increasing demand in people (particularly those with young children and growing families) wanting a property close to London with great amenities and more space around them; not just spacious gardens but also surrounding countryside. Working from home and a different way of living seems to be the new normal and we anticipate this continuing through into 2021, particularly when international buyers can return to the UK without having to quarantine.
