With the stunning Farthing Downs and Surrey countryside one way, and Greater London the other way; Coulsdon has, for a long time, served as an ideal place to enjoy both rural and urban living.
Interestingly, Coulsdon was originally named for a separate village which is now referred to as Old Coulsdon, notable for its Tudor style houses and some of the finest views of the Farthing Downs.
Situated at the top of Rickman Hill, the village of Chipstead has existed since before 1086 and is defined by its mature trees, open fields and long winding lanes.
Located to the north of Coulsdon, the town of Purley is home to the Webb Estate, a collection of 225 houses on just eleven roads. These are some of the grandest houses in South London, with William Webb's unique vision turning tranquil farmland into one of London's best kept secrets.
Advances in infrastructure now enable trains to reach the heart of London in under twenty five minutes from Coulsdon South and Purley.
Our schools benefit from being some of the most popular for miles, with many Coulsdon residents having found memories of Smith, Woodcote or Chipstead Valley, while parts of Coulsdon are also in the catchment area for Wallington High School for Girls.
In short, each one of the towns and villages in this corner of Greater London possess their own special identities.
