“Being close enough to London to commute, but really benefitting from living in a more beautiful, quiet and rural area is most definitely the sweet-spot,” says Mark Crampton.
“The longer I’ve spent living and advising in this part of England, the more I’ve come to appreciate it.”
As Middleton’s specialist advisor for Surrey and Sussex for over 10 years, Mark has developed an unmatched knowledge of an area that also encompasses the relatively suburban towns of Esher, Cobham and Weybridge (including the private leafy estates of Burwood Park and St George’s Hill) down to the South Coast including seaside villages such as West Wittering.
“Whenever I take on a client brief – often from families moving out of south-west London – I feel very, very confident that we’ll be able to cover all of the typical core elements – stylish architecture, beautiful villages and countryside, great choice of schools and plenty of good restaurants, pubs and farm-shops.”
“Having acquired properties in all of these places on behalf of clients I can give you the detailed insights that make these significant decisions so much clearer and simpler to make – whether that’s the minutiae of the railway lines to London, or an introduction to the wonderful arts festival in Petworth that we have sponsored for several years.”
“I definitely feel like something of an ambassador for the Surrey Hills and the South Downs these days, because so many of our clients have happily settled here and are really loving the country lifestyle, while staying connected to London.”
