The Woodcote Estate comprises a group of Purley’s premier roads, situated to the south of Smitham bottom lane and backing directly on to open fields and the Woodcote park golf club, founded in 1912.
The Woodcote Estate has six roads, five of these being no through roads so traffic in this area is practically non-existent. So, road names to remember are: Woodcote park avenue, Hillcroft avenue, Verulam avenue, Walburton road, Newton road and Elton road. This is one of the quietest and most sought after areas, with individual houses of distinction ranging in value between £1,000,000 and £2,000,000. Originally the land was all owned by the Woodcote Grove Estate Limited, still in existence today and represented by managing agents locally, most of the properties are still effected by Woodcote Grove Estate covenants and so whether you are considering selling or buying, we are at your disposal should you require further information or advice.
The Woodcote Estate is located in Purley and its surrounding area is known for many excellent state and private schools, which include locally The John Fisher School, Woodcote High School and Cumnor House (all within walking distance), St Davids plus in the surrounding areas: Wilsons, Croydon High School, Old Palace, Whitgift School, Trinity, Wallington Boys and Girls and Caterham School. There are also many nurseries and colleges nearby.
Purley town centre features various recognisable high street retailers, cafes and restaurants, as well as independent stores and designer boutiques. In addition, there are plenty of recreational facilities nearby, such as Purley Swimming Pool, Purley Sports Club, Surrey Health and Racquets Club, cinemas, bowling alleys and two golf clubs: Purley Downs and Woodcote Park. If you need a pint of milk or the Sunday papers, the Lord Roberts is conveniently located within a short walk on the corner of Upper Woodcote village green. A short drive and you are within five minutes of Banstead, Coulsdon and Wallington high streets.
When it comes to exploring the great outdoors, locals are spoiled for choice, with a range of open spaces on the doorstep, all perfect for family outings; options include Purley Beeches, Kenley Common, Farthing Downs and Oaks Park.
The Woodcote Estate’s close proximity to London makes it an ideal location for commuters, with the A23, for those brave enough to drive, taking you straight to the capital, a journey I have personally made many times. Otherwise, by train, Purley station is a short drive away, you can reach London Bridge painlessly in half an hour or London Victoria in about 40 minutes. The M25 and M23 are less than six miles away, and there’s easy access to Gatwick and Heathrow airports.

Dear Paul and the ShineRocks team, Thank you! We are delighted that we successfully completed on the sale of The Garth, 12 Welcomes Road on Friday, and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you, Claire and the team for all your excellent work on our behalf. We really appreciated your proactivity, frankness, responsiveness and good...
Mr & Mrs F
Very professional, responsive and delivered on promises to the tee
Worked hard to find possible buyers. Very professional and friendly staff. Drove the completion by liaising with all parties when things threatened to go pear-shaped. Very satisfied customer
Having tried a couple estate agents to sell our house, with no result, we tried ShineRocks. Paul Shinerock was realistic in his valuation, which others had not been and we had a number of viewings. A Christmas present was accepting a very good offer. Unfortunately, the buyer dragged his heels and then at the point of exchange decided to...
A great service offered by both Paul and Claire. Sometimes the best thing an agent can do is to convince you to accept an offer and to encourage you to pay more to get the house of your dreams. Had Paul not convinced me to accept the offer on mine I would not have moved. Claire moved heaven and earth to enable me to purchase a property through...
Mr & Mrs W
Very helpful, pleasure to work with, and they offer a great service
My house purchase was very complicated, ShineRocks handled it very professionally
Claire was our estate agent and she was incredibly professional, always available and kept us completely up to date. A pleasure to buy and sell with
Exceptionally professional and helpful and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend ShineRocks
Excellent service over a period of several months. Always at hand to offer advice and their expertise. Highly Recommend Shinerocks and thank you for all your help
I was very pleased with the service - professional yet caring
Very professional and excellent service in a complicated situation which resulted in a positive result. We have purchased 2 homes from Paul in the last 14 years. Claire is remarkable and kept us fully up to speed
Very friendly. After a slow start we got on very well and achieved our objective. Particular thanks to Claire
Hi Caire, Can you say a massive 'thank you' to Paul for coming to see me. He really gave me some things to think about that had just not crossed my mind. Swapping the bathroom and middle bedroom and adding a bathroom to the main bed room made so much sense, I've got Alan coming over on Saturday to cost it up! I'll definitely...
We have recently purchased a property through shinerocks and can honestly say the service we received from Claire was exceptional. She kept us updated regularly and liaised tirelessly between solicitors, vendors and the other agents in what became a difficult and frustrating chain. She was both professional and personable, and we always felt...

Claire, You're an absolute star! Thank you so much.
Mr and Mrs W
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance and facilitation of the purchase of our property, and I would relish the opportunity to work with you again in future endeavours.
Just want to say a big thank you for all your help and support. I know you were not our estate agent but we really felt supported and coached through the whole process and I can't thank you enough.

We would like to also comment upon the superb level of professionalism shown by the staff at ShineRocks. Having been to other block bookings we must say that this one was handled to so well. Additionally the advice given regarding parking was most helpful. We will certainly keep an eye out for other properties marketed by you. Kindest...

V and K
Dear Paul We are at last beginning to see some order in our new home and have time to catch breath. The move was challenging to say the least as we were downsizing dramatically and had too much to fit in prior to having an extension to create two more rooms and allow us to convert an existing one into a utility room. We would like to take...
G and S S
Good morning Claire, I have been meaning to e mail you since Monday just to say thank you! Mum and I are extremely grateful for all the time you have given us and we really do value your advice and guidance. We have been in contact with a lot of agents, in fact probably all of the main estate agents around the area and ShineRocks...

Dear Paul, Well, we got there in the end! Although it was long, complicated and at times, a very stressful journey, we appreciate the help of you and all your team in finally getting us over the finishing line. Best regards
Thank you for everything you've done. I couldn't have got through this without you. Putting up with every difficult situation in such a kind way. Thank you so much.
