High Warren coming soon to the super suburbs

Plot 2 at High Warren

Over the past year buyers have been taking advantage of the value gap between property in London and outside the capital. As property wealth flows out from Central London, the halo of 'super suburbs' around the city is asserting its power. Top among these is the inner Surrey platinum triangle around Epsom, Esher and Cobham where Millgate Homes is set to launch High Warren, an exclusive development of just five luxury detached homes.

According to figures from Knight Frank, houses outside London have risen in value by 5.6% since the market low in 2009 and currently sit 16% below the previous market peak. In contrast, house prices in prime central London have grown by 74% and are 32% above their previous peak, making property outside London much better value for those wishing to trade up and out. But with prime commuter suburbs expected to outperform the London market again this year and for the next few years to come, there has never been a better time to buy in these favoured suburbs.

The key attributes for a ‘super suburb’ are an ultra-desirable location with excellent commuter connections to Central London, large homes with grounds and privacy and great leisure facilities such as golf courses close at hand, in all offering London style but with a village vibe. All of this and much more is true for High Warren, situated in a quiet and leafy location in Ashtead within the M25. The homes are due to launch for sale in early 2015.

Sales and Marketing Director for Millgate, Jonathan Cranley comments: “The prime Home Counties suburbs have always been highly sought after but now they are really coming into their own as one of the most prestigious locations for high net worth individuals to call home. We are pleased to announce the forthcoming launch of an outstanding collection of homes at High Warren, which we expect will attract strong interest especially from those in search of an impressive family home. The quality and craftsmanship of the properties is truly exceptional, because we know that for our discerning buyers, every last detail can never be anything less than absolutely perfect.”

The five properties available at High Warren are elegant and spacious, each built with a bespoke design and meticulous attention to detail. They incorporate every conceivable modern luxury but architecture is designed along classical lines to give a timeless and uniquely British feel. Each home is set within its own private, secure grounds and one of the properties features an outdoor swimming pool.

The very best materials and specification are carefully chosen throughout. Kitchens feature bespoke hand-painted units, granite worktops and curved oak breakfast bars and are well equipped for even the most ambitious catering with a full range of appliances including a WOLF range cooker, Miele steam oven and warming drawers, SUB ZERO fridge freezer and wine chiller and a double Belfast sink. Another kitchen is found in the annex, which can be used for staff or guest accommodation and the property with the swimming pool also has a kitchen in the pool house.

Bathrooms are luxurious and calming, equipped with CP Hart and white Villeroy and Boch sanitaryware, contemporary Vado chrome fittings and chrome ladder towel rails. High quality carpentry is beautifully hand finished, stone fireplaces are incorporated in the living areas and lighting is always flattering with LED downlighters and dimmer switches.

Outside the carefully landscaped gardens include immaculate lawns to the front and rear, as well as stylish areas of low maintenance planting. Ample patios and terraces provide plenty of space for dining and relaxing al fresco, while the triple garage has electronically operated doors. Security is a priority throughout so there is an approved hardwired security system, CCTV points on each corner of the house and external lighting. Underfloor heating is fitted throughout the ground and first floor and a highly efficient gas-fired central heating system in conjunction with a pressurised hot water cylinder ensures an endless supply of hot water.

High Warren is located at The Warren, one of Ashtead’s very finest addresses. Despite its close links to London, Ashtead is the perfect exemplar of leafy green belt village, with a friendly local community offering a busy social life with a range of clubs and societies such as the thriving cricket club. Nearby is the RAC Club at Woodcote Park, the out-of-London branch of the famous Pall Mall members club. Here the focus is on golfing and entertaining, with two 18-hole golf courses and two restaurants, as well as the full range of gym, swimming pool, tennis and treatment rooms.

Ashtead is ideally situated for transport links with direct rail connections from Ashtead station to both London Waterloo and London Victoria in around 40 minutes. By car, junction 9 of the M25 is just a few moments away and Gatwick and Heathrow airports are both close by. Families are spoilt for choice when it comes to education - there are a wide range of excellent state and independent schools in and around Ashtead.

There is plenty of choice in the area when it comes to leisure activities with the beautiful countryside of the North Downs offering walking and cycling, a wide range of golf courses to choose from and the South Coast in easy reach. The famous Epsom Downs racecourse is on the doorstep which hosts one of the world’s most famous races, ‘The Derby’ – a highlight of the sporting and social calendar.

The homes at High Warren will be on the market at a guide price from £3.75 million. For further details, visit
