Property in East Horsley


East Horsley is sometimes referred to as England’s wealthiest village.

With its neighbour West Horsley, the village is situated between Leatherhead and Guildford, from where there is good access to the A3/M25, London Heathrow and Gatwick airports. Horsley station, as well as close by Effingham Junction, are on the Guildford line, from where there are very fast links to London Waterloo.

There are good schools, local shopping and other amenities such as pubs, restaurants and sports clubs. There is an abundance of local woodland and picturesque scenery associated, in part, with the lower slopes of the North Downs.

Mentioned in the Domesday Book, it is known as “Lovelace Village”, after the renowned Lord Lovelace, due to the quality of his local architecture from the mid-Victorian era. There are a number of other distinctive houses from the 1920’s & 30’s built by Frank Chown, another respected architect.

Historic Restrictive Covenants on development, meaning a higher proportion of detached housing, have created some of the most expensive property in Surrey, but there are still homes available for those on a more modest budget.


As a Chartered Surveyor, property professional and relocation agent, Neil has almost 40 years experience, acting either for clients or in pursuing his own interests in both the buying and renting of residential property, particularly in London, Surrey and Kent where he has lived and worked most of his life.

Knowing the trials and tribulations involved, he is well placed with his bespoke service, to guide clients who are busy with their own lives and business concerns, or those with the combined pressure of changing jobs and moving home, through the process as speedily and smoothly as possible.

With his agency contacts, Neil has been able to source, early “off market” opportunities for clients seeking properties to buy or rent for their own occupation or investment purchase, either as Holiday Let or “Buy To Let”, some also with redevelopment potential, of which they would not have otherwise been aware.
