As we start to embrace the warmth and beauty of summer, Cranleigh and the surrounding villages in Surrey and West Sussex are witnessing a continued and steady growth within its housing market. Whilst the market may be showing a mixed picture elsewhere in the UK, the signs for a positive and healthy market locally are all here. And in many ways, it’s no surprise! With its picturesque landscapes, excellent amenities, and a strong sense of community, these elements fuel the ongoing demand for homes in our area.
In this blog, we will delve into the reasons behind the flourishing housing market and explore the factors that contribute to this continued growth as we head towards summer.
Surrey Hills and Beyond - A Desirable Location
Nestled in the heart of Surrey, Cranleigh and the villages around it, offer a unique blend of natural beauty, and convenient proximity to major towns such as Guildford, Horsham and Woking combined with a tranquil countryside lifestyle. The area boasts stunning landscapes, including the vast Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which attracts outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Cranleigh's charm also lies in its ability to provide residents with a peaceful and idyllic setting while still being within easy reach of these main hubs.
Amenities and Infrastructure
Cranleigh's thriving housing market can be attributed, in part, to its well-established infrastructure and abundance of amenities. The village boasts a range of shops, cafes, restaurants, a new addition of Knowle Park and many local businesses, ensuring residents have everything they need within close proximity. Additionally, Cranleigh is home to reputable schools, in both private and the state sector making it an appealing choice for families looking to settle down in a safe and nurturing environment.
An Excellent Range of Housing Stock
There really is something suitable for everyone in the area. From stunning period properties dating back to the sixteenth century to some of the most hi-tech sustainable homes in the UK. With both retirement villages and retirement apartments located in Cranleigh the options for those looking to downsize is well catered for too. Victorian housing through to mid-century family homes are also available in many of the villages too.
Cranleigh's appeal extends beyond its natural beauty and amenities. The village offers transport links, making it an ideal choice for those who work in nearby towns. Commuters can easily access Guildford, Horsham, and London, as well as other towns in Surrey, thanks to well-connected road networks and convenient public transportation options. The proximity to major employment centres is undoubtedly a key factor in driving the demand for homes in the area.
Cranleigh’s flourishing housing market is also influenced by its strong investment potential. The village has experienced consistent price growth over the years, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. Investors recognise the appeal of Cranleigh's location, amenities, and thriving community, making it an attractive choice for those seeking long-term capital appreciation.
A Sense of Community
One of the defining features of our location is its strong sense of community. Many of the villages host various events and activities throughout the year, fostering a close-knit and welcoming atmosphere. The community spirit and neighbourly bonds are highly valued by residents and contribute to the desirability of the area.
