Moving home can be a important event in your life and so it shouldn’t be taken lightly. The place we move to will have a large impact on our lives so it’s vital that we make the correct choice. London is unlikely to disappoint but it’s still important to look carefully at each region.
The Kingston upon Thames postcode area in the south-west of London and the north-east of Surrey. Abbreviated to KT, it encompasses most of the Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames, as well as sections of the Boroughs of Sutton and Merton, as well as Surrey districts Epsom & Ewell, Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead, Runnymede, Elmbridge, Guildford, and Woking. The sorting office for the region is the Jubilee Mail Centre near Hounslow.
The area was subdivided into twenty-four areas in 1917, as were all London postcode districts. These range from KT1 to KT24 and are used at the beginning of the postcode for a single corresponding area. These sections were introduced in order to improve mail delivery and make navigation easier by creating more specific points. The latter idea was expanded upon by including them on street signs.
KT12 is one of these areas and is used within Walton-on-Thames and Hersham, which both fall into the Borough of Elmbridge. It’s post town address is WALTON-ON-THAMES. House prices are fairly reasonable with flats beginning at around £174,600 for a single bedroom and increase to £243,200 for two bedrooms, £370,200 for three bedrooms, and then to £550,800 for four bedrooms. Houses range from £188,800 to £647,300 for one and four bedrooms respectively but then increase much further to £1,303,200 for five bedrooms and £2,331,900 for six bedrooms.
The KT12 was for the longest time a rural area but this began to change when the railways were introduced in the 1830s. It is currently a popular residential area and offers a wide range of properties. These include apartments, bungalows and flats, inter-war semis, extravagant Grade II listed Victorian and Edwardian homes as well as riverside properties and top market executive style homes in the Ashley Park and Burwood Park. The area boasts good schools and strong and fast transport links to London and is close by to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. The people who tend to live here are families, young professionals and veteran business people. There is a wide variety of stores and restaurants and this has been improved recently by a new shopping centre. There is an abundance of green open space and recreational facilities that provide for sports, fitness and a variety of hobbies.
