Crouch End: More than a standard commuter base

Crouch End: More than a standard commuter base

People living and working in London are typically on the lookout for somewhere these days that offers them more for their money, with the suburbs and outskirts able to provide a way of life that they can't find in the city. The general price of houses outside the capital also means they can afford bigger properties and give their kids somewhere to live that is less stressful and more quiet.

Finding an area though that offers something for all the family is still difficult to do, with the need for good commuter options and education the most important for any family unit.

Thankfully these are both to be found by those who are seeking out property for sale in Crouch End.

Located in the North London borough of Harringey, the suburb is ideal in that it offers some of the best transport options available to commuters. While some outskirts areas will see them confined to one packed train station each morning, those living in Crouch End will have the chance to visit Turnpike Lane, Finsbury Park, Highgate and Archway, giving a greater array of options for choosing the least congested and most convenient.

Schools will also be a major consideration, and thankfully the town caters well for families in this respect. With seven primary schools serving the area, parents of those who are about to start their education will have a number of options to choose from that will mean selecting the best to meet their needs.

There are also three different secondary schools in the area.

Away from work and school though, it will also be important that any area outside the capital offers enough facilities that residents are not having to travel to the city on their time off.

Crouch End provides well for these needs, with a library at Hornsey giving parents the chance to make sure kids are reading enough. It also has a wide range of DVDs to borrow.

There are also a number of local shops in the area, including a supermarket, a vintage shop and a range of other retailers.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801551096-ADNFCR
