What is Cobham like?
As one of the first non-suburban areas along the A3 commuter corridor from South West London, Cobham is a logical location for families looking for space and a rural feel. The ACS Cobham International School also makes it a favourite location for the international community, particularly among Americans and Scandinavians.
In addition to Cobham and Oxshott, we cover Stoke d’Abernon, East and West Horsley, Great and Little Bookham, together with Fetcham, Ashtead, Leatherhead and Ripley.
Property in Cobham
There is such choice in Cobham’s residential market that we have separate dedicated sales teams looking after the core and prime markets, ensuring maximum focus and results. The wide variety of property ranges from pretty cottages to the ultimate in contemporary mansions.
This is classic commuter belt, an area of leafy residential roads and affluent, well-maintained villages. The prime locations include the Crown Estate in Oxshott, and the Fairmile Estate, Eaton Park Estate and Oxshott Way Estate in Cobham. Privacy and security are highly prized; here, a stunning range of interwar and modern homes represent the cream of commuter-belt property.
Alongside this glamour is a superb choice of period cottages and family homes. Popular locations include Tilt Road in Stoke d’Abernon, with its numerous semi-detached Victorian houses fronting open countryside, handy for the station.
More rural are the outlying villages such as the Horsleys and Bookham, set in the glorious Surrey countryside yet still with local stations for easy access to London. Here you can find a good choice of pretty cottages, spacious interwar family homes and substantial country houses.
The local scene
The private estates of Cobham and Oxshott are home to numerous celebrities and premier league footballers, thanks to Chelsea FC’s training complex in Stoke d’Abernon.
Its green, semi-rural setting is one of Cobham’s biggest draws. The town not only sits on the threshold of the Surrey countryside, but is also close to a number of classic gardens and parks, most famously RHS Wisley and the 18th-century landscape gardens of Painshill and Claremont. The National Trust-owned Polesden Lacey, near Great Bookham, is a major attraction. The area’s excellent sports facilities include numerous quality golf, tennis and rugby clubs.
Trains from Cobham & Stoke d’Abernon station reach London Waterloo and London Victoria in about 35 minutes; there are also stations at Oxshott, Horsley and Effingham.
Cobham is at Junction 10 of the M25, only four junctions from Heathrow Airport.
The A3 is nearby, providing direct road access to central London, and out to Guildford and the Surrey countryside.
