Fleet offers popular appeal for families; the combination of great commuter links, OFSTED ‘outstanding schools’ and lavish countryside means Fleet has something for everyone, with a mix of property to match.

Whilst the town centre offers a wide selection of recognisable brands and independent shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, the surrounding villages and developments all have their own sense of community, whilst remaining in good proximity to major roads, notably the M3 and A331.

Fleet is located just off Junction 4a of the M3, with a mainline station reaching London Waterloo in just under an hour. This gives commuters the opportunity of working in London yet enjoying a slightly slower paced lifestyle in Fleet and its surrounding villages, whilst the neighbouring town of Farnborough also hosts large international businesses.

There is an exceptional quality of life on offer, with so much countryside on the doorstep ready to explore; the Basingstoke Canal runs through the town and provides a wonderful place to walk the dog, go for a run or simply stroll along the leafy tow path enjoying the scenery. With two local nature reserves, one including Fleet Pond, the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire, you are never far from a rural escape. There is a strong sense of community in the town, with groups such as Fleet Pond Society pulling together to protect the natural beauty of the area, whilst annual events include Fleet Carnival and the renowned Fleet Half Marathon.

The mix of property in the area is hugely diverse; you have the impressive, sought after homes of the Blue Triangle, modern family homes on Elvetham Heath and Zebon Copse, along with individual Victorian homes in the surrounding the High Street.

I’ve worked in Fleet for over 25 years and have seen the property market continue to thrive, it’s a stable investment for any buyer and a perfect spot for family life. Whilst I, as a keen golfer, can take advantage of the reputable North Hants Golf Club, former club of US Open Champion, Justin Rose.
