SO Resi FarnhamSO Resi Farnham

New homes for sale in Farnham

Located on the western edge of the county and the North Downs, Farnham has been described as an early example of a commuter town, with the railway opening in 1848 and putting the commercially successful town within easy reach of London (journey time these days, 50-60 minutes), with wealthy city workers purchasing weekend homes here. Senior ranks from the nearby Aldershot army base, also starting in the mid-19th century, also chose to live in well-to-do parts of town. Today, it has a good mix of independent shops and national retailers, including several supermarkets, and there’s a monthly farmers’ market. It’s an exceptionally good place to live for parents as there are many schools that are ranked ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Like Epsom, the town is the site of one of the campuses of the University for the Creative Arts.

Situated in the town centre, Brightwells Yard is a Crest Nicholson development of apartments. The current range of one- and two-bedroom properties for sale start at £249,950 and for buyers who qualify, there are potential significant savings through Deposit Booster and Smoothmove schemes. There’s also Part Exchange and the Deposit Unlock scheme, the latter requiring a deposit of only 5%. All designs incorporated open-plan living and private balcony or terrace. Find out more about Brightwells Yard.

SO Resi Farnham is another collection of town centre one- and two-bedroom apartments, these ones available via Shared Ownership and each coming with an allocated parking space. For a limited time right now on selected plots, there’s an offer of 12 months service charge paid on your behalf – a great saving just after you’ve moved in. Prices start at £69,375 for a 25% share of a one-bedroom apartment (based on full market value of £277,500). Find out more at soresi.co.uk.

Runnymede Homes has an exclusive development of just 14 two-, three- and four-bedroom homes at Eleanor Place, situated off Firgrove Hill, under a mile from the town centre. Each home includes either a garage or private allocated parking.

Stanley Lodge from Churchill Retirement LivingStanley Lodge from Churchill Retirement Living

Best new homes for sale in Epsom

Many people will associate Epsom with its famous racecourse, located on its southern outskirts, but there is a lot more to it than that. Located near the border with Greater London, it is surrounded by Green Belt land, so development is quite limited here. There’s plenty in the town centre, an excellent range of shops and amenities alongside cafés, restaurants and pubs. It’s also home to one of the campuses of the well-regarded University for the Creative Arts, as well as state and independent schools. With three stations, the town offers regular services to Waterloo, Victoria and London Bridge, and the M25 is only three miles away.

Just moments from the shops and station at Tattenham Corner, Churchill Retirement Living’s Stanley Lodge is a collection of 34 age-exclusive one- and two-bedroom private apartments complemented by communal lounge/coffee bar, gardens and guest suite. Specially designed to suit older buyers, these secure and energy-efficient homes have fully fitted kitchen and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout, plus a 24-hour call centre support system.
