As one of the most exclusive, sought-after areas outside of London, Virginia Water is a picturesque, leafy village suburb south-west of the capital in Surrey. Surrounded by rolling green countryside, it is home to the world-famous Wentworth Golf Club and its four Championship courses, where the very first Ryder Cup was played.

With excellent transport links to London via a direct train to Waterloo and easy access to nearby Heathrow Airport, the town is popular among both commuters and families looking for a perfect work/life balance.

The area is becoming increasingly popular with families, as those from all nationalities look for houses for sale in Virginia Water to take advantage of real estate prices outside of London and benefit from the outstanding local schools, including ACS International and TASIS (The American School in England).

Large detached houses are commonplace in the area. Property values in Virginia Water tend to be high, with Lloyds Bank naming the area as one of Britain’s most expensive.
