For a long time Surrey has been the location of choice for families wanting to move out of the city and make the most of country life within commuting distance of the capital. Leatherhead, Epsom and Reigate have often been the postcodes of choice but Surrey has one trick left up its sleeve, Walton-on-the-Hill. A cosy, welcoming and quintessentially English village, unspoilt by the masses and the location of Brookworth Homes’ development, Sandlewood Grange. In a place most don’t even know exists, this luxury offering is for those looking for something special.
Here are the top eight reasons Walton-on-the-Hill may be the best place to settle down that you’ve never heard of.
Sandlewood Grange is a stone’s throw from the Surrey Hills and Downs, meaning everywhere you turn in Walton-on-the-Hill you are greeted by breath-taking views and areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A welcoming site compared to busy metropolitan life.
Walton-on-the-Hill is the home of Mere Pond and the famous Walton Swans which have called Mere Pond home for decades. The pond and the surrounding park land offers idyllic picnic settings in the summer months and picturesque village views around the winter season.
Award winning Italian cuisine
Established in 1985, Spaghetti Tree boasts a friendly and welcoming atmosphere as the dedicated staff work hard to attend to everyone’s needs. This independent Italian restaurant has even been named one of the best in the country winning gold in the 2017 Papa Awards.
A ramblers dream
Surrounded by the Downs Walton-on-the-Hill boasts many stunning walks for the keen rambler or the gentle stroller. Varying countryside, long and short footpaths and numerous refreshment points mean that the area is a dream spot for those who are itching to get their walking boots on.
Sandlewood Grange lies midway between Epsom and Reigate, and just a mile and a half from Tadworth station, from where trains deposit passengers at a variety of London stations in under an hour. Motorists are well served too. Less than 5 miles away from the development are both junction 8 and 9 of the M25 London orbital motorway, giving flexibility if you are traveling east or west. Gatwick and Heathrow airports are also pretty much equal distances from the village, making holiday escapes or business trips a breeze.
A sporting chance
There are a dozen golf courses in a close radius of Sandlewood Grange, including Walton Heath Golf Club, which a professional could reach with a three wood from the front porch. The sporting attractions don’t end there: The Epsom racecourse is just over a mile away, while the many villages dotted around the Surrey Hills area of outstanding natural beauty have cricket greens famous for their friendly summer sporting rivalry.
In need of drink? Walton-on-the-Hill has you covered, whatever your need, a quick drink, cosy atmosphere or filling grub, it all can be found in the village’s various pubs. Be it the traditional ‘Bell’, the fish serving ‘Blue Anchor’ or rural ‘Blue Ball’ this quaint village has a destination for whatever mood you are in.
The homes at Sandlewood Grange are finished to the highest standard, blending in beautifully to their surroundings with high chimney stacks and hanging-tiled rooves. Each boasts a hand-crafted sweeping staircase, finished in walnut which acts as a bold statement when entering the properties.
