Highgate: A family location within capital commuter belt

When the time comes to choose a new place to live, many people across the UK will turn their eye towards either a location that is family-friendly or beneficial to commuters. However, if you are making this decision, why scrimp on either of them, when you could have the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds in a place near London.

This can be discovered in the vicinity of the capital with property for sale in Highgate. The area is perfectly positioned for commuting into the city each day. However, it also has the potential to provide a great family life which is almost akin to living in a much more rural settlement. Such is the focus on making sure that the town keeps its persona and character, that it even has its own conservation group.

Those who want to travel into London for work each and every day will find the place an idyllic place from which to travel. Highgate Tube station, along with Archway Tube Station, is located very nearby, and the short commute each day will be particularly easy, leaving you free from stress to enjoy a quiet book on your Kindle.

Away from work, schools will also be important, and anyone hoping to live in the Highgate area will be able to make a choice between the high number of educational institutions available in the vicinity, as they all fall under Harringey's catchment area.

However, it is the character of the settlement itself which makes Highgate a highly sought after place to live. Situated within it is a Georgian village of the same name. Here, residents can find such highlights as small period shops and restaurants which give a very rural and local feel, allowing you to relax away from the daily slog of the office.

And finally, such is the area within which Highgate is positioned, that there are even opportunities to enjoy the nearby greenery of Hampstead heath, where you can take the family for a quiet and peaceful stroll together.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801479078-ADNFCR
