Victorian and Edwardian homes – where to find them in Weybridge

Located along the River Wey in the borough of Elmbridge the town of Weybridge has a charm all of its own, with its picturesque streets complemented by its wealth of period properties.

Those heading to Weybridge in search of Victorian and Edwardian properties will be spoilt for choice, with the borough boasting a large housing stock from these periods ranging from modest terraces and semi-detached houses to large detached houses.

Here are just a few spots in the town where fans of heritage homes and would-be buyers are likely to stumble upon a Victorian or Edwardian property or two.

Visitors to the town can find a number of streets off the main High Street made up predominantly of two to two and a half storey Victorian or Edwardian homes. And what these properties lack in sizeable garden space, they certainly more than make up for in period detailing. This includes traditional features such as grey/ red roof tiles and sash windows.

Thames Street and the surrounding areas juxtapose the old with the new, with grand, two-storey villa style homes from the Edwardian and Victorian periods located in close proximity to late 20th Century developments, such as those on Jessamy Road.

Portmore Park Road is home to several imposing late Victorian and Edwardian properties located on large plots. Similar properties from these eras can also be found on Wey Road, which is also home to post-war homes and more modern homes.

Those who are keen to snap up family homes may want to head to Heath Road and surrounding areas, where a number of large Victorian/ Edwardian suburban villas are located. Similarly the area also caters well to those looking more modest homes, with several Victorian/ Edwardian terraces also found here.
