Sitting on the border between London and Surrey, Cheam can broadly be divided into commercial North Cheam and the more residential area to the south. Popular with commuters and young families, Cheam is relatively affluent, something which is reflected in the very large sums certain properties in South Cheam attract, however there are cheaper semi-detached homes for first time buyers too. Cheam Village has historic buildings aplenty and traditional pubs; it was also once home to Cheam School, attended by Prince Philip. As with most commuter belt regions there is plenty of greenery; Nonsuch Park was created by Henry VIII as a hunting ground for the royals and today acts as the area’s main recreational space.
