The small town - which comprises the areas of Ascot, North Ascot and South Ascot - is highly desirable among property searchers thanks to its many good schools, its proximity to central London (direct trains to the capital take less than an hour) and the prestigious Ascot Racecourse.

A wide array of property types can be found in Ascot, from the mansions and cottages of South Ascot to the family-size homes of North Ascot. In addition, there are several executive apartment and starter home developments.

This diversity means the town holds appeal for a range of house-movers, although homes in Ascot are particularly popular among professionals commuting to London and families looking to take advantage of high-quality local schools such as Charters School.
