In the middle of the Surrey countryside lies Dorking. In the valley of Pipp Brook and between Box Hill and Leith Hill, Dorking is surrounded by natural beauty, yet is only 20 miles from London. The town is therefore very popular with commuters who want a more relaxed, rural home lifestyle. Although a small market town, reallymoving has helped over 110 people move into the area in the last 12 months alone up to June 2016.
Dorking has been the site of a settlement since pre-Roman times, and in the Georgian and Victorian periods expansion of the small settlement into the town it is today began. As a historical town, Chartered Surveyors in the area are adept at carrying out both Building Surveys, a more rigorous housing survey for older or non-conventional properties, as well as HomeBuyer Reports for modern, conventional properties that do not need an extensive report. Seeing as the town lies on Pipp Brook and is very near the River Mole, it may be worth getting a Building Survey if you are worried that the property you want to buy may have been affected by historical flood damage.
With reallymoving you’ll be able to find the best deal in no time at all and will be exploring the area in no time at all. Whether cycling up Box Hill like Bradley Wiggins, or visiting the Denbies Wine Estate, the largest in England, there is plenty to do in the area.
