Oaks Estate Agents
Estate Agents in Shirley
Just east of Croydon on the A232 lies the town of Shirley. Though small in population the town is long in history with the earliest recorded settlement here dating back more than 2,000 years to pre-Roman days. Today, it’s a sleepy town with a modest centre that is surrounded by numerous golf courses.
There are not as many physical commuters here as there are in Croydon, just down the road. A fair percentage of the population are either digital commuters working from their homes, young families or retirees. If you’re looking for Estate Agents in Shirley, Oaks are the ones to call.
A Little More About the Town
While some development did occur here during the 20th century much of the town managed to escape the bulldozer and retain its rural air. That English Country atmosphere is a powerful draw to a lot of people, but it’s not the only one.
Along Wickham Road, which serves at the high street, you will find a variety of restaurants catering to different tastes. They include Italian, Chinese, Mediterranean and more. There are also several charming cafes and coffee houses. In addition, you’ll find fish & chips, Middle Eastern food and let’s not forget the amazing Surprise Inn with its outstanding seafood offerings.
Few towns in South London are more runner-friendly than Shirley. But if you like your exercise to take place in the comforts of a well-appointed modern gym you’ll find them here as well in the form of the Trinity Sports Club and Simply Fitness UK. While just 5 minutes down the A232 you’ll find Solutions Health & Fitness and other health clubs. And of course, the town borders on golf country.
Besides safety, one of the reasons so many young families move here is the excellent educational opportunities the town affords. There are pre-schools, primary schools, girl’s schools, private academies, art schools and more.
