About Sutton and Its Housing Market
Sutton is a suburban town in South West London about 10 miles from the City Centre. The first written records of the town date back to the late 11th century; it is mentioned in the Domesday Book which among other things also notes that it was a village and that it had two churches.
History of the modern town of Sutton largely dates from the mid-19th century when it got a rail connection to London. After the arrival of the railway, the village soon transformed into a town. The growth continued during the 20th century and in the 1930s, it was designated as a municipal borough. Originally a part of Surrey, the town has been a part of Greater London since 1965.
Home to a number of some of the very best schools in the borough which in turn is among the best local education authorities in the country, hundreds of acres of parks and open spaces, and lowest crime rates in Greater London, Sutton is a very desirable place to live for young families. What is more, it has been declared as one of the best places to raise children in the UK capital. And considering its rapidly growing economy (which is based on small and mid sized businesses) and good transport links to London City Centre and other major business hubs in Greater London, it’s no surprise that most homes in the town sell within a month. Prices – about £310,000 for terraced properties and £400,000 for semi-detached homes – are above the national average but not that expensive by London standards.
