Welcome to Christies Country
Home buyers from all over the world have realised how much our area has to offer. Property prices locally have continued to rise over the past few years, and there are many reasons for this.
The schools, both state and private, are excellent. The same can be said of the transport links to London, with regular train services to London Bridge, Victoria and Waterloo, and Morden Underground within easy reach for most commuters. There is also quick road access to the centre of the capital, as well as Gatwick and Heathrow airports, via the A217, A3 and A24 (via M25 and M23).
After a busy week in the office, locals can enjoy an abundance of superb sports and leisure facilities. The area is renowned for its fantastic golf courses, including the world-famous Walton Heath, which has staged the Ryder Cup, the British Seniors Open, the European Open and US Open Qualifiers. It has also played host for the past 10 years to the final of the Surrey Juniors team knockout tournament, which is sponsored by Christies.
For those wishing to stay in shape there are numerous sports clubs, a variety of health and fitness centres including David Lloyd, Nuffield Health, Fitness4Less & DW Fitness plus many Yoga & Pilates venues.
If long and refreshing walks are more your thing, there are numerous local parks and scenic spots within the area, many with interesting historic associations. These include Nonsuch Park in Cheam with the adjoining open spaces of Warren Farm (Woodland Trust), The Oaks Park, Carshalton Grove, Ponds & Park and Beddington Park featuring the meandering running waters of the River Wandle.
Glorious Surrey green belt countryside includes both Banstead Downs & Woods, the heaths at Walton & Headley, and the sprawling vistas of Epsom Downs, Reigate Hill & Box Hill.
However, if you prefer to exercise your credit card rather than yourself, fear not – there are some great shopping outlets in Sutton, Epsom, Banstead, Reigate, Kingston, Croydon & Wimbledon.
The fabulous local restaurants also offer some food for thought. Top billing goes to the Regional Thai Taste in Cheam Village alongside the equally tempting eateries at Mimi Coco, Star of India, Lal Akash, SamSara & The Village Charcoal Grill.
Great cafes with friendly welcomes include Piggies, The Coffee Zone & The Cottage Garden.
