Guide to Ashford
Divided between the county of Surrey and the borough of Hounslow, the town of Ashford lies firmly within the London commuter belt. Its excellent transport links – its station on the Waterloo to Reading Line, while junctions of the M3 and M25 motorways are also nearby – make Ashford a popular choice among people working in the capital.
Property in Ashford is largely made up of low and medium-rise buildings. The majority of houses are semi-detached, but there are also a large number of detached properties and apartment buildings in the town. Most of the housing stock is modern, although some properties date back to the Victorian period.
While most development in Ashford happened in the 20th century, evidence of Bronze Age settlement has been found in the area and the town also appeared in the 1086 Domesday Book.
