It can be quicker getting to work in London from a home counties commuter town or village than from a Travel Zone 3 or 4 address.

Ashstead in Surrey is one such spot, with 40-minute trains to Waterloo and Victoria, and an annual season ticket costing not much more than £2,000. It is an archetypal village with highly regarded schools, a cricket club and plenty more local amenities including, on the doorstep, the RAC, an offshoot of the St James's gentlemen's club, with two 18-hole golf courses.

The Warren, pictured, a leafy private enclave of homes on big plots, is one of the best addresses. Five substantial new houses have been built there, each of up to 7,704sq ft. Prices from £3.8 million. Call Millgate Homes on 0118 934 3344.
