Fast becoming the hotspot of the South, many are drawn to a Haslemere home search as it has much to offer and is the southernmost town in Surrey, bordering West Sussex. With a bustling High Street offering boutique and national high street stores, Haslemere has been transformed in popularity by the opening of the new Hindhead tunnel on the nearby A3 making it popular for commuters who want to combine more countryside with accessibility.
Families choose a Haslemere home search as there are a range of properties, from Victorian and large character properties on the outskirts of the town, to Grade II listed terraced cottages going up Shepherds Hill from the High Street. Local development has been discreet and the whole feeling of Haslemere is of traditional living.
Many are attracted to a Haslemere home search as there are good schools in the area with the Royal School being originally an independent girls boarding school but now following the diamond teaching method and accepting boys for the whole senior school from September 2013. There is also a museum, sports centre and an excellent local community who all enjoy and are involved with the bi-annual Charter Fair, dating from the charter that was awarded to Haslemere by Elizabeth 1st in 1596. Those buyers focusing on a Haslemere home search in more recent years tend to be those with families who also need a good commute to London.
Commuters choose a Haslemere home search as there is a regular direct train service to London Waterloo in under 60 minutes. The close proximity of the A3 makes both travelling to London and also the South Coast convenient.
Nearby Chiddingfold is the archetypal picture postcard village with a village green and pond with an ancient coaching inn, Church and surrounded by beautiful 17th and 18th Century houses and cottages, together with Georgian fronted properties. It has an annual firework display considered to be one of the best and most popular in the country. Houses in this area can be at a premium and it is easy to see why.
The small villages of Lynchmere, Shottermill and Grayswood offer a more rural way of life and are characterised by listed period terraced housing to the centre of the villages and larger detached properties and old farmhouses to the outskirts. The area is very popular with walkers and cyclists with Blackdown and Gibbons Hill being some of the heights points in the south east of England and affording wonderful views across the South Downs to the south coast.
