Five to view: property in Wimbledon

As the most exciting Wimbledon Championships in years draws to a close this weekend, we take a look at what homes are for sale in the world-famous SW19 postcode.

And there’s more to life than strawberries and cream here:  Wimbledon has its own Broadway, a bustling high street packed full of shops, bars, restaurants and even theatre.

However, there’s no getting away from the district’s main attraction and, for that reason, our five to view are all within a ball’s throw of Centre Court.

Five to View: Property in Witney

As David Cameron takes up residency in Downing Street, we take a look at the housing market in his constituency of Witney.

Before Dave, the Oxfordshire town’s main claim to fame was the high quality woollen blankets it has produced for several hundred years.

Now, however, its name will be forever wrapped up with that of the UK’s latest prime minister – only time will tell whether this new association will prove to be quite so cosy and long-lasting as Grantham’s was with Margaret Thatcher.

Here’s our pick of properties in Witney:

Five to view: properties in parkland

If there’s one thing that sets Britain apart from the rest of the world, it’s our magnificent grand gardens and estates. No matter that they were often paid for with fortunes amassed by Victorian industrialist using cheap labour – more that despite this we now have one of the the world’s most enviable collections of grand estate homes and gardens.

The world now celebrates Britain as the crucible of garden design on a grand design – so more moving lakes, planting new forests and remodelling hills than re-arranging borders – and of course  the most famous was Launcelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

So if you might like to own a stunning piece of 18th or 19th century garden design rather than talk or read about it, then here are five delightful parkland properties to stroll through.

Price: £5,250,000

2. Ottershaw, Surrey

Five To View: Homes with fabulous views

It’s all about the views this week. From rural to seaside, and lochside to lakeside, the common denominator of this week’s five to view is that they all have va-va-vroom vistas.

Such spectacular views command a premium price, of course, but we all know that location is everything in property.  And who would begrudge paying a little bit extra for the privilege of all that loveliness on the doorstep?

But enough: we’ll let the scenery speak for itself.
