Category:Oxshott

English: Oxshott is a village in Surrey, England with a growing population of around 6,100 in Metropolitan Green Belt heath and woodlands between Esher and Leatherhead centred a mile along the A244 from the A3 (Portsmouth Road) and the M25 London Orbital motorway. It is in London's stockbroker belt. Two factors to its high proportion of substantial houses and gardens are:
  • the historic associations with Esher, which in the same way as Weybridge, Surrey and Richmond, London, was selected for the new homes of members of the royal family in the 19th century,
  • Most of its developed land formerly belonged to the Crown Estate which acquired its central and eastern areas in the 19th century.
These led to Oxshott being assessed as the most expensive British suburb to live in by the Daily Telegraph on 26 December 2007.
