Caterham: Ideal for the London commuter

Caterham: Ideal for the London commuter

The London commuter in general is now becoming a lot more savvy when it comes to deciding on a place to live that gives them both access to the city and the sort of home comforts that they desire for themselves and their family.

While many will seek out a place in the likes of Essex, or even the outskirts of London itself, there are other options slightly further afield that offer a fantastic way of life. One such town will be discovered by those who are seeking out property for sale in Caterham.

The Surrey down is ideally placed for any commuter, sitting just to the south of Croydon. It has decent road access to the capital itself, but also offers great links for professionals via the rail network.

Those who head to the office on the train each morning will find themselves in the heart of London within just 50 minutes, giving them the perfect balance between proximity to work and the chance to live somewhere a little quieter and out of the city itself.

It is not all about the daily trials of the commute though, as most people will have either a family or a partner, and having good amenities and access to plenty to do will be important to make sure everyone is happy with where they live.

Those with kids will be concerned with the educational facilities on offer in any new town that they head to, and Caterham will not disappoint on this front. The area is home to a number of institutions, including Caterham School and Oakhyrst Grange, as well as the main secondary de Stafford School.

In terms of activities to keep everyone busy, there are a number of different venues to make the weekends and holidays pass by without a lack of something to do. For example, families might like to attend the East Surrey Museum for a little bit of history around the county, while community arts and theatres will provide the chance not only to see some shows, but also to get involved.

And when the kids become a little more independent, they might enjoy taking up a new hobby at the local skate park.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801541921-ADNFCR
