Spring is here – it’s time to go house hunting!
Lawns have been mowed, the evenings are lighter, and spring bulbs are in full bloom. It’s no wonder that this time of year tends to be one of our busiest.
Sellers in Cranleigh and the surrounding villages are keen to showcase their homes when their gardens are looking fresh and green. And they won’t be disappointed, because we have no shortage of house-hunters on our books, with first-time buyers, families and down-sizers all hoping to find the perfect home in 2018.
Now that the clocks have gone forward, early evening viewings are a far more enticing prospect. Curtains are wide open and it’s possible to get a proper feel for the light and space within a home. Viewing after work is also helpful in terms of getting a sense of the area: if you’re worried about possible road noise, between 5pm and 6pm is when traffic tends to be at its peak.
Here at Roger Coupe, our office has been very busy with enquiries from potential vendors and buyers, and we’ve been out and about valuing a huge variety of properties in the Cranleigh area. Some of our latest to go on the market include a superb four-bedroom detached home with potential to extend on Bloxham Road, Cranleigh, and a spacious family house on Woodlands Close on the eastern edge of the village.

April events to savour
Wine lovers take note! On Saturday 28th April Cranleigh Village Hall is hosting an English Wine Fair from 5pm to 9pm. This unique event showcases award winning English wines from local vineyards and beyond, including Bolney, Black Dog Hill and High Clandon. Organised by Cranleigh Lions, tickets cost £10 in advance or £15 on the door.
For the green-fingered among our community, the Spring Garden Show at Loosely Park is a highlight of the calendar. Just a few miles from Cranleigh, Loosely Park is a great place to visit for all the family. The garden show, which runs from Friday 20th April to Sunday 22nd April, will feature plant sales, garden bygones, equipment and furniture, driftwood sculpture and food stalls.
If organised events are not your thing and you prefer to be in the midst of nature, the countryside around Cranleigh is known for its beauty and tranquillity. Any number of public footpaths criss-cross this area, making it perfect for dog walks, relaxed strolls or day-long hikes.
