Surbiton is a suburban area made up largely of a housing stock of flats and maisonettes. Whilst some semi-detached, terraced and detached properties exist, the proportion of sales in the last 25 years show a lack of availability in those property types.
The flats and maisonettes are a mix of purpose built blocks, largely from the 1960s and 1970s, and flats above shops. The smallest proportion of flats come from converted large Edwardian and Victorian houses.
Communication links are excellent with the mainline railway station of Surbiton in the town centre and other stations, such as Berrylands, Tolworth and Kingston close by. There are many bus stops, serving many routes in the area. The A3 is only a mile or so away giving easy access to central London and the M25, M3 and M4.
It is an ideal place to live for those interested in the water as the River Thames is very close, for riverside walks and jogging and a number of rowing clubs and marinas nearby. Richmond Park is very close and the Surrey countryside is only a short distance away for keen cyclists. There are also numerous National Trust, English Heritage and Royal Palaces (Hampton Court) together with Kew Gardens for days out and places to visit.
If you are considering purchasing in the area employ the local experts, Landview Surveyors. We are based in Surbiton and know the housing stock well and are able to conduct a survey appropriate to the property's age and condition.
