Highgate: Ideal commuter residence in the city

Highgate: Ideal commuter residence in the city

Working and living in central London can be stressful, and while it is something that many young professionals enjoy for a while, the time will come when most want to move somewhere a little more comfortable.

Suburbs on the outskirts of the city often allow people to find better value for their money when buying homes, while also providing excellent access to their place of work via the extensive transport network.

This sort of lifestyle choice can be made when you find the perfect property for sale in Highgate. Located in the north-eastern corner of Hampstead Heath in North London, the suburb is something of a rarity with its greenery and rural feel, making it one of the most highly sought after.

The charm of Highgate comes from its traditional atmosphere. The area has its own conservation group dedicated to preserving this, and as a result, the centre of the town still retains many Georgian buildings and listed landmarks.

Highgate also presents residents with a number of useful amenities, preferable given that no one will want to have to head into London when they are relaxing away from the office.

There are rows of shops - both local and national - as well as pubs, restaurants and a popular arts centre. For those with a bit of an historic interest, it is also home to a famous Victorian cemetery, which is the final resting place of Karl Marx.

In the summer months, Highgate can be one of the most attractive places in London to live, with walks and picnics on Hampstead Heath popular among the many families that populate the area. 

Its positioning atop a hill also makes for a fantastic view across the city on clear days.

By far the most attractive aspect of Highgate for those who work in London, however, is the fact it is so well served by transport options. Highgate Station is on the Northern Line of the Underground system, and will provide frequent trains into the city every morning, making the daily commute a breeze, while there are a number of bus links also serving the area.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801633443-ADNFCR
