Idyllic market towns continue to be popular with homebuyers and are amongst some of the most sought-after locations in the UK. New research by Lloyds Bank has found that property prices in English market towns have increased an average of 21% in the past five years, compared to neighbouring towns. Located on the edge of the historic market town of Dorking, Millwood Designer Homes’ development Little Logmore is perfect for buyers in search of a home in one of Surrey’s most sought-after locations.
Proving popular thanks to a slower pace of life, market towns provide character and charm along with access to a selection of excellent amenities, amongst beautiful rural surroundings. Situated in picturesque Surrey close to stunning countryside, Dorking benefits from a bustling high street and trains to London in under an hour. Little Logmore is a beautiful collection of five, three bedroom terraced and semi-detached homes, available with Help to Buy. The homes have been designed and built sympathetically in keeping with the architectural style of the historic market town and enhanced by using local materials.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “It is no surprise that market towns are one of the most desired residential locations in the country, with many homebuyers aspiring to re-locate to the countryside. Providing the perfect balance between modern upmarket amenities and quiet country life, Dorking is a fantastic location. The homes at Little Logmore are ideal for those looking for a chance to buy more for their money, with the added bonus of Help to Buy available, without compromising on style or location.”
Each home offers a spacious open plan living, dining area and garden room, featuring bi-fold doors opening onto the rear garden, inviting the outside in. Kitchens are fully equipped with integrated appliances, such as an electric oven, combi microwave oven, induction hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. Upstairs, the large master bedroom has access to a contemporary white en suite bathroom with chrome fittings. A further two bedrooms on this floor share the well-appointed family bathroom. The homes include access to car parking facilities, either a private garage or car barn.

As well as independent arts and crafts shops, boutiques and eclectic antique shops, there are plenty of High Street and designer brands available. For leisure opportunities, Dorking Sports Centre is just 1.5 miles from the development, for residents to make use of the gym and swimming pool complex.
Located within the Surrey Hills, residents of Little Logmore are never far away from outdoor activity. Overlooking the River Mole, Box Hill is filled with hiking trails, river walks and stunning viewpoints. Suitable for riders of all abilities, the Box Hill cycling route is also great way to experience the countryside of the Surrey Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
