When it comes to property, Surrey is home to some of the most desirable homes in the country.
From massive country mansions through to city pads with great transport connections, it seems that the appetite for premium properties in Surrey is only growing. But who exactly are buying these properties? We explain all below…
According to a survey by Knight Frank, over 55% of properties worth over £5 million sold in Surrey were bought by international buyers, eager to find their own place on the outskirts of London, away from the hustle and bustle of the capital. The fact that there are three extremely popular international schools in Surrey also means that international buyers are eager to live in the area, as they look to get the best possible education for their children.
Surrey is the original Stockbroker Belt – an area close enough to London to provide an easy route to work, but far enough away to provide some relief from the relentless London pace of life. While this influx of “new money” hasn’t been to everyone’s taste, there’s no doubting that the stockbrokers and bankers are here to stay – and they’ll keep spending their cash on Surrey’s most desirable properties until there’s no more space to build them.
Surrey is a magnet for celebrities of all shapes and sizes. From Andy Murray through to Michael Caine, the chances of living close to a worldwide icon are pretty good in this county! Even Brad and Angelina have a place in Surrey (a £10 million pad in Richmond, bought after Brad filmed World War Z close by). Surrey is also known as somewhere full of professional footballers, who play for the many teams found in London, and who aren’t known for being shy about splashing their cash on elaborate homes.
