The Chase Estate Epsom
As an Epsom estate agent, the regular question we get asked is where and what is The Chase Estate in Epsom, Surrey?
The Chase Estate is an area of land to the North West of Epsom Town centre. In the 19th century the land where the chase estate stands was owned by the chase family. Subsequently the land was sold off and became the Chase Estate.
Where is the start of the Chase Estate?
The start of The Chase Estate is on Meadway with the two houses that arch over the road. If you walk through the arch there is a roundabout, which has a unique metal pole advertising the road names. If you stand on the roundabout looking down the hill of West Hill you will see the city of London (this is clearly visible in the early morning of evenings in the winter).
Below are pictures of the arch which is the entrance to The Chase Estate. The picture on the left is from the 1930’s and the picture on the right is how the arch looks today.
