Yeoman's Croft, Countryside Residential's development of five family houses, located 200 yards from Bookham Village's thriving high street, and in the catchment area of some of the top performing schools in the south east, is expected to attract purchasers from far afield when it launches this summer.

Richard Rawson, Sales and Marketing Director of Countryside Residential (South Thames) Ltd., comments, "For many families, it is a priority to have a house in the catchment area of particular schools and a lot of people moving house are doing so in order to ensure that they can enrol their children in schools which are high up in the league tables."

He continues, "Bookham Village is highly regarded for its excellent reputation for private and state schools from primary to secondary levels. Our development is, in fact, within the current catchment area of the Howard of Effingham school, one of the most sought after comprehensive schools in the county, as well as a number of other schools with particularly high reputations."

The three and four bedroom houses at Yeoman's Croft are situated in a courtyard development in what was once in the grounds of a C16th detached house. The houses are built with traditional materials and blend in well with the architectural vernacular of neighbouring homes and their picturesque and well established surroundings.

Bookham is a vibrant, historic village, close to Leatherhead, Cobham and Guildford. It is ideally located off of the A246 with links to the A3 for London and the South coast and the M25. A mainline train station runs a direct service to London Waterloo (journey time approx. 50 mins)

The five 3 and 4 bedroom houses are available at Yeoman's Croft priced from circa £250,000 to £400,000.
