Chelmsford: Live in relative peace in the commuter belt

Chelmsford: Live in relative peace in the commuter belt

For many people, the first few months of the year will be the time when you are most likely to make use of that New Year's resolution and try your best to find yourself a new job. This can sometimes mean a move towards the big city. However, while this can mean working in London, for example, most will see living in the city itself too expensive.

With this in mind, you might therefore be looking for something a little further out that still offers you wonderful access to the capital as well as having its own amenities and facilities to make life a pleasure. This sort of settlement can be discovered when looking at homes in Essex, and particularly property for sale in Chelmsford.

The town is becoming rapidly popular with people who see it as a fantastic commuter region when working in London. However, it is still home to fewer than 100,000 residents, which means that it offers a peaceful way of life the city just can't.

Its position as a commuter's paradise is secured by the fact that Chelmsford is perfectly placed geographically. It's 32 miles from Charing Cross making it not too close but also not overly far from the city centre.

Workers travelling into the city have good links via the A12, with a range of bus services available hourly, while the drive can take just 30 minutes if you are lucky enough to beat the traffic. For most though, the railway will provide the easiest and most hassle-free way to travel to the office each morning.

One of the busiest train stations in the country, Chelmsford offers strong links to London Liverpool Street regularly, while the option also exists to travel to Harwich and Clacton from where the tube can be caught.

The chance to live in Chelmsford will also mean making sure that the town can offer a good way of life too though, and thankfully residents will find many pubs, restaurants and shops, including John Lewis. Parents who are bringing kids to live in the town will also have a range of different options to choose from in terms of their schooling.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801572359-ADNFCR
