Property prices in South West London currently stand at an average of almost £855,000 according to Zoopla. For house buyers who are considering moving to the suburbs to get more for their money, Chertsey, in Surrey offers similar homes for less than half that price. Buyers looking to move away from London’s inflated prices but wishing to remain within the commuter belt should consider Bellway Homes’ new development, Chertsey Halt. The homes here offer an excellent investment opportunity, with prices remaining steady and gently rising by 1.6% since March this year.
The development includes three and four bedrooms homes available from £574,995, making Chertsey Halt the ideal home for professionals, families and first-time buyers. The government’s Help to Buy scheme is also available allowing buyers to get onto the property ladder with a 5% deposit.
Zoe Dobbs, Sales Manager for Bellway Homes North London comments: “This new development will appeal to young professionals and families looking to up-size without the strain of a higher London price tag. We are pleased to be able to offer these new homes with Help to Buy. Chertsey is a great place for this demographic with lots going on, good schools and those all-important London commuter transport links.”
Many of the housetypes available offer plenty of space inside and out. The spacious open plan living and dining areas are perfect for families. Homes all come with integrated appliances, en suites to master bedrooms and off-street parking. The development also includes a public open space of landscaped grounds, a natural play area and wet grasslands, perfect for relaxing in during the summer months.
The popular theme park, Thorpe Park is only a 10-minute drive away, meaning unlimited fun for all the family. Nearby there is also a water sport facility offering water skiing, wakeboarding and new for 2017, Thorpe Lakes Aqua Park, which is a huge inflatable water park, full of slides, climbing walls and rope swings, a real treat in this warm weather. The homes are also close to local amenities in nearby Chertsey town centre offering a selection of shops, restaurants and the River Bourne Health Club.
Chertsey Halt is perfectly positioned near a number of well-regarded schools, such as St Anne’s Catholic Primary School and Meadow Croft Community Infant School, while Salesians School and Jubilee High School welcome older pupils.
Those looking for good transport links won’t be disappointed either. The development is a short walk to Chertsey train station, with fast links to London Waterloo in under an hour. Road connections are also excellent with the M25, junction 11 only a short distance away providing onward travel connections to the M1, M40, M3, M4 and A3. For those looking for international travel, London Heathrow can be reached in 20 minutes.
