About Kingston and Its Housing Market
Formally called Kingston upon Thames, Kingston is a town in South West London located about 10 miles from the City Centre. Famous for the Rose Theatre, Kingston University and as a host to several 2012 London Summer Olympics events, Kingston also has a rich history dating back to at least Saxon times.
The town is first mentioned by written records in the 9th century when a meeting between King Egbert of Wessex and Archbishop of Canterbury took place here. Later, it was the site of coronations of several Saxon kings. These are thought to take place at St. Mary’s chapel which, unfortunately, fell into ruins in the 18th century. However, a large stone has been recovered from the ruins and is believed to be the Coronation Stone. It currently sits in front of the Kingston Guildhall.
Fantastic schools, good transport links, low crime rates and relatively affordable housing made Kingston very popular with families, first-time home buyers and investors. The average property prices are similar to the overall London average. In practice this means that some properties sell well above the London average but it also means that it’s possible to find some great deals The majority of sold properties in Kingston are flats and are selling at an average price of £370,000. Last year terraced homes went for an average price of £540,000, while an average semi-detached property was sold for £650,000.
