Live in the suburbs of the capital

Live in the suburbs of the capital

Mention suburban areas of big cities, and most people's minds would probably turn straight towards the white picket fences and sports cars depicted by US TV.

There is, however, a huge market for suburban properties in the UK as well, especially since fewer people are now looking to live in cities themselves and incur the premium on prices that can come with this privilege.

Such a perfect area can be discovered in the suburbia around London, and particularly for those who are looking for property for sale in Purley. This area of Croydon is perfect for families, with much to offer everyone, as well as being the idyllic commuter setting.

Purley is perfectly positioned within the surrounding area of the capital, sitting a mere 11.7 miles from Charing Cross.

This means that office workers heading into the capital on a daily basis for work will be able to do so without hassle, on a journey which will take them no longer than half an hour.

A train station in Purley even means that commuters can head straight to London directly without having to change elsewhere.

Being essentially a medium-sized town, with a population of 72,000 approximately, Purley also provides the sort of amenities and facilities which are perfect for all of the family.

A range of shops exist in the area, which makes it spot on for those looking to just grab a quick bit of shopping without having to head into the city and deal with commuters and tourists.

And when a night out is on the cards, whether with workmates or a significant other, it will be pleasing to know that Purley has a wide range of restaurants and bars which will keep your ventures out varied and exciting.

And finally, for those who are bringing kids to the town to live, it will be essential that they make sure there are decent educational facilities available in or near their new town. Purley has a range of schools for pupils of all ages, meaning that residents can put their kids through their entire education in their hometown.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801415364-ADNFCR
