London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 31, 2012 -- M Winkworth PLC ['Winkworth'] has opened an office in Grantham. The office will cover the town and surrounding villages, such as the Vale of Belvoir, Long Bennington, Allington, Harlaxton, Colsterworth, Manthorpe, Belton, Barrowby, Great Gonerby and Old Somerby.
Best known nationally as the birthplace of former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the place where Sir Isaac Newton went to school, Grantham is a centrally located market town, sitting in South West Lincolnshire. The town offers excellent links locally to Lincolnshire and further afield to London via the A1 Great North Road, and many rail routes. In recent years Grantham has increasingly offered an ideal relocation solution to many looking to be within commutable distance of London (1h 5m to London Kings Cross), whilst seeking a better quality and affordability of day to day life.
Grantham's education system is one of the main reasons to relocate to the region. Today, young people have plenty to choose from in all areas at all levels. For boys, the 'Kings Grammar School', and for the girls 'Walton High School'; with the latest addition being 'The Priory Ruston Academy'.
Property in Grantham is an eclectic mix of ages, with Victorian and Edwardian properties covering the majority of the area. However, in recent years there have been a significant number of new housing developments, bringing in a wealth of modern medium and large family homes in both the town and villages.
The office will be run by Associate Director Adam Lascelles, who has more than 17 years' experience in the residential property market.
Adam said: "We felt this was a fantastic opportunity, with Winkworth's already successful offices in Lincoln, Newark, Sleaford, Bourne & Market Deeping, in addition to 60 offices in London. With this in mind we felt a natural progression to fill in a natural gap linking Lincolnshire with London, putting our buyers and sellers in a prime position to move in 2012.
"We are thrilled to have opened in Grantham with experienced individuals who have a proven track record bringing together a fantastic team, with huge enthusiasm.
"Grantham really is the ideal relocation package. Living in the area means no shortage of leisure, cultural and sporting opportunities and for the foodies there are many great eateries in the surrounding town and villages."
James Trimble added: "We are seeing an increase in the number of people moving from London to attractive commuter able areas. They recognise that they can reduce the size of their mortgage while still upsizing to a larger property and be within easy access to the Capital. Grantham fits in extremely well with the concentration of Winkworth's five offices in the region."
