With new research by Zoopla revealing that an hour’s commute can make a significant difference on the price of your home, it’s unsurprising more people are retreating from the Capital when faced with typical house prices over £700,000 in Zones 1 and 2. For house-hunters happy to sacrifice a short commute for a more affordable pad Bellway Homes are offering homes from £439,995 at its development in Surrey where a commute from nearby Ash train station to London Waterloo takes 55 minutes.

Nicky Morton, Sales Director for Bellway Homes Kent comments: “Moving to Ash offers a fantastic opportunity to save money by buying a home in the country. It’s no secret that house prices within inner London are considerably higher than outside of the capital. The new houses at the Croft offer a commute under an hour, and a home almost half the price of their city counterparts. Looking to the countryside not only offers greater value, but a living space for families to grow into.”

The Croft in Ash provides a beautiful selection of three, four and five bedroom homes. Situated in a quiet leafy location in the Surrey countryside, the homes at The Croft are ideal for growing families looking for more space, illustrated perfectly by the new four bedroom show home.

The homes at The Croft are designed to an excellent specification with fully fitted kitchens complete with modern AEG appliances, an electric double oven, gas hob, and integrated fridge/freezer.

On the first floor, homeowners will find good sized bedrooms, with the master bedroom benefitting from fitted wardrobes and an en suite. The rest of the bedrooms are served by the stylish family bathroom complete with white Roca sanitaryware and chrome plated fittings.

Perfect for commuters, Ash train station located just a short walk away, from where direct services into Guildford take about 10 minutes, Reading 30 minutes and London Waterloo in less than an hour, via Guildford.

There is a good selection of state and private schools in the area from nursery to senior level. State schools include Ash Green Primary School and Ash Manor Secondary School which are both within walking distance, whilst for parents looking for private education, Rydes Hill Preparatory School, Barfield School and Farnborough Hill for Girls are all within driving distance. For older siblings Godalming College and the University of Surrey in Guildford are both within easy reach.

The Croft also benefits from convenient road connections, with access to the A3, M3 and M25, providing links into London, Reading and the South Coast, while Heathrow Airport is around a half an hour drive from the development.

Prices at The Croft start from £439,995 for a three bedroom house. For further information on properties at The Croft, visit
