Surrey offers some very desirable town locations, one such town being Godalming. Less than 45 minutes commute to Waterloo, it is close to the larger City of Guildford but as it is bit further down the train line you will get more for your money. The average property price in Godalming is £458,000 with a detached four bedroom house in the region of £800,000- £1-1.5 million. If being close to the station is key there is a small enclave of Victorian Streets just south of the High Street where you could find a three- bedroomed house for between £500,000- £550,000
Daniel Vasey at Warren Powell Richards told Homes and Property’s that prices have dropped about 2% in the last year blaming Brexit blues but houses are still selling 10-15% less than Guildford.
Godalming has an attractive town centre with a mixture of Tudor timber-framed buildings, Georgian and Victorian houses, plus the well-known landmark- The Pepperpot– the pink-painted octagonal town hall in the High Street- which is now operates as a function room
A walk or boat trip along the river Wey (you can also cycle to Guildford along the riverpath) makes for a lovely restful afternoon. The surrounding countryside is full of gems- walk amongst the trees at the National Trust’s Winkworth Arboretum or cycle in the Surrey Hills
Shopping and socialising in Godalming is fun with plenty of dining options including quaint old pubs such as The Star and The White Horse or try one of the many mid-range restaurants.
Home to the well- known Charterhouse public school – just on the outskirts of town. The state schools are pretty much all ranked GOOD in the Ofsted’s reports
