Why move to Basingstoke?

Basingstoke is the largest town in the county of Hampshire and lies across a valley at the source of the River Loddon. It is often nicknamed "Doughnut City" or "Roundabout City" because of the number of large roundabouts. Basingstoke has developed from an old market town to now becoming an important economic centre with excellent transport links to London.

 

Local market

The Basingstoke property market is very popular to investors and commuters with main line rail links to Waterloo running regularly. Property is in short supply with high levels of demand. A studio flat will cost somewhere in the region of £90,000 with a three bedroom family home ranging from £180,000 to £300,000. Basingstoke has a wide variety of properties ranging from old beautiful cottages to country manor homes.

 

Properties

As a popular residential area, there is a range of property types in Basingstoke. With a wealth of beautiful Victorian and Edwardian homes, there is also a good selection of complete period buildings and Victorian villas, with some of the most popular being in the town centre. In contrast to the many attractive period buildings, there are an increasing number of contemporary developments, including the Limes Park which has had the old buildings restored and a modern new estate built around it. Most of the houses and flats in the area were built for the hospital and have now been redeveloped to provide a stunning range of homes. Other recent additions to the town include Marnel Park, Sherborne Fields and Sherfield Park in Sherfield-on-Loddon.

 

Shopping

With over 200 stores, the Festival Place is the ultimate destination for choice and variety for you to shop "til you drop". With brands like Warehouse, Quiz, French Connection, Jane Norman, Top Shop, Zara, Next and TK Maxx, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

 

Location

The rolling hills and woodlands of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty cover a section of the western side of the borough, offering lots of opportunities for outdoor pursuits such as walking and cycling.

 

Transport

With Basingstoke train station providing a 50 minute direct journey to London Waterloo, Basingstoke is popular with commuters looking to move out of London.
