Elmbridge top's the UK Borough's

Five of the top 10 Boroughs in the UK are in the counties of Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire reports Lucy Denyer in this week’s Sunday Times Home section.

In Surrey were the boroughs of Elmbridge,Epsom, Ewell, Waverley, in West Sussex the borough of Horsham and in Hampshire the borough of East Hampshire covering the areas of Petersfield and Medstead.

The survey was carried out by Experian who used criteria from air quality to crime waves to complete their research.

And it was hardly surprising that they stated those who live in the borough that topped the list – Elmbridge - were more likely to:

  • have a degree,
  • drive a nice car,
  • have a good job,
  • own a nice house

and that most lived there because of its good access to London and good education.

It is certainly true that at Elite we have recently seen a higher demand from families selling up in West London areas such as Wandsworth and moving to borough’s within Surrey looking for a change of lifestyle and the relative increased value that can be achieved but which is still commutable for the capital.

An example being:-  for £3.5m in Wandsworth you can buy a semi -detached house 3,000 sqft in need of modernisation with a small back garden and no off road parking, where for the same money in Surrey you can buy a recently renovated home in a private estate with high internal spec  8,000sqft and ½ acre.
