Staines-upon-Thames (previously Staines-on-Thames) has been an inhabited town since Roman times. Recent years, however, have seen the area become more and more desirable, especially for families, and we have seen an increase in demand for homes in the area.
So what exactly is it that makes Staines great? And why should you be considering it as a place to move your family to?
1 – Staines-upon-Thames is actually very pretty. It has beautiful parks overlooking the Thames and a thriving community and local culture.
Given the surrounding areas, which include Chertsey & Virginia Water, the property prices here are relatively affordable too.
2 – Staines is very well connected, with almost immediate access to the M3 and the M25 motorways, and with Heathrow airport on its doorstep. There are also regular trains to Reading, Windsor, and London Waterloo altogether making Staines the perfect commuter town.
3 – For families with children, the schools in Staines are also a draw with many of them having been awarded good, and improving, Ofsted reports over the years.
5 – It has a fantastic selection of bars and pubs (many of which awarded a certificate of excellence) meaning that you will never be struggling to find somewhere decent to eat or drink whatever you fancy.
For the above reasons we love Staines-upon-Thames and think it is one of the best and most affordable places for families to relocate. If you would like to talk to us more or are interested in properties for sale in Staines & surrounding areas, then please get in touch with us today on: 01784 252202
