Why Move to Ashford In Surrey?
The mostly residential town of Ashford, Surrey is also a suburb of London which almost entirely sits in the Surrey County Council borough of Spelthorne, with a small part falling within Greater London. Ashford is attractive to buyers for several reasons.
Its town center uniquely retains a small-town charm despite being a large town close to London and its residents enjoy a close-knit community, home to more clubs and societies than any other in the borough.
When compared to the Capital City, buying a home in Ashford is certainly within the reach of those who don’t earn a fortune. There has been a settlement in the area since the Bronze Age and Ashford appears on the Middlesex Domesday map as Exeforde, held by Robert, Count of Mortain.
These days, the town forms part of the London commuter belt and as such is seen as a ‘prime location’ for a fast-track into London. It is often referred to as Ashford, Middlesex to distinguish it from the larger town of Ashford, Kent.
Located just 2½ miles from Heathrow Airport, Ashford attributes a portion of its economy including business premises relating to aviation and the distribution of air freight – the main cargo depot being next to an adjoining village, Stanwell.
With lots of greenbelt areas such as Bedfont Lakes and Shortwood Common, people living in the town have access to plenty of things to do outside all year round. All in all, it is not hard to see why this great town is in high demand right now as more and more urbanites try to escape inner London and look to get back to nature with a quieter, healthier, and much safer lifestyle for their families.
