Life by the seaside in the city

Life by the seaside in the city

For many people who are looking for somewhere new to live in the UK, the big debate will exist over whether they want to move somewhere more lively and happening like a big city, or if they would rather live the quiet life in a small town environment.

However, for those who are having difficulty with this decision, there could be a simple option which works as a compromise, and can be found easily by those who are seeking out property for sale in Southsea.

The town itself is a seaside resort in Hampshire, which means that it will have all the tranquility associated with coastal living. It is also though, based just a mile from the city centre of Portsmouth, giving residents of Southsea the perfect opportunity to visit the city when they need to,

For this reason, more than most, the town of Southsea is perfect for those commuters who want to bring their family up away from the city. The small population of just some 18,500 in Southsea will mean that it is the sort of small area where families will feel like a welcome part of the community, and can relax in quiet surroundings.

However, the benefits for work and school of the city being so close are endless. Thanks to its proximity to Portsmouth, travel links by bus into the city itself are regular and plentiful, meaning that those who are working in Portsmouth will have little trouble in reaching the office in time every day.

Another benefit of being so close to Portsmouth will be in the education of the children in the family. With a large number of schools in the city, parents will have a wide choice over where they send their kids to start their educational career.

However, Portsmouth is not the real attraction of Southsea. The town plays host to a number of architectural sites which make it attractive to visitors and residents alike, while the Southsea Common, a large grassy area situated therein, makes a perfect place for families to take walks, exercise the family dog, or even partake in sports during the lengthy summer holidays.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801390156-ADNFCR
