Barnt Green: Idyllic village life close to the city

Village life is often seen as the sort of thing that people will turn to later in life when they want to take the chance to relax in their retirement. However, it does not always have to be like that, as some of these types of settlement offer something for everyone.

For example, those who are in the market for a quieter place to raise their kids, while also having good access to one of the country's biggest cities, may not normally give a village a second glance, but if they did, they would discover all that they need in property for sale in Barnt Green.

The village is home to just 1,700 people, making it the perfect sort of quiet environment for a young family to bring their children up without the noise and general stress of city life.

However, it is located very close to England's second city, meaning that it has a long standing tradition of being a commuter settlement for the larger area, and its transport options are excellent as a result.

The trains that pass through the village are operated by London Midland, and allow those working in the big city to make the short nine-and-a-half mile journey to Birmingham New Street without any issue each morning, keeping the stress from the daily trip.

Of course, for those who are moving with their family, it will be imperative that the educational facilities are adequate. In Barnt Green, parents will find that their kids are well-catered for in the local primary. This means there will be no worry over them travelling out of the village, while they also get to attend school with all their friends in an environment they know.

In terms of the amenities available in the settlement, locals will find themselves with adequate facilities. The area has a small shopping street and a park where parents and children can enjoy a range of different sports and a good old dose of fresh air that is often associated with village life.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801540534-ADNFCR
