Sutton

Our thoughts on Sutton…

Sutton is one of the most tranquil boroughs in the capital, characterised by charming period housing, peaceful green spaces, and happy residents – an impressive 91% said Sutton was a ‘great place to live’ in a recent survey!

Buyers are drawn to the borough for the dual lifestyle of good links to the centre of London alongside opportunities for a more rural way of life.

Due north of the Surrey Downs, Sutton residents don’t have to travel far to get lost in the rolling hills and mesmeric views, a unique privilege of living in this part of London.

Despite the tranquility, it’s a centre for innovation and excellence, being home to the renowned Royal Marsden Hospital. The Institute of Cancer Research on Cotswold Road has undergone the first phase of the a £170m ‘Sutton for Life’ regeneration project, which has so far helped to build a Centre for Cancer Imaging to evaluate new treatment drugs.

There are Asda, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose Supermarkets in the borough and for keen home cooks remember to pay a visit the monthly Farmer’s Market in the High Street at the beginning of every month.

    For a bit of retail therapy, selections are available in the town centre with two shopping centres, Saint Nicolas and Times Square, which offer a range of high street favourites. There are also a number of other useful shops on the High Street, including a range of different bank branches. If this isn’t enough, you can also extend your options by simply hopping on a train to central London!

  5. Speedy transport

    Sutton benefits from National Rail links, Thameslink services and bus services scattered throughout the borough. A train journey to Clapham Junction or Victoria from Sutton takes a mere 30 minutes or less, with onward travel fast and straightforward from both of these locations. For drivers, the borough is only a few miles from the M25 whilst the A24 provides a straight route all the way to the heart of London.
