Muswell Hill: Ideal for family life on the outskirts of London

Muswell Hill: Ideal for family life on the outskirts of London

Straight out of university, many young professionals who are lucky enough to secure themselves a job in London will make the decision to move to the city itself in order to enjoy the nightlife, exciting amenities and plentiful facilities.

However, for most, the time will come when they want to start a family, and with the busy streets and roads in the city, this will be the time when the majority choose to look for somewhere that gives them a place more conducive to raising their kids.

These sort of areas can be found in the suburbs when looking for property for sale in Muswell Hill. This is an area just six miles from Charing Cross that offers the perfect balance between access to the city and a quieter surrounding to enjoy as a family.

One of the foremost thoughts that will come with a move like this will be whether or not it is easy to commute into the city each day from home, and this is an area in which Haringey excels. Because of its positioning atop a hill, it does not have direct access to a tube station, but there are frequent buses, as well as underground facilities within easy reaching distance in Highgate, Bounds Green, East Finchley, Finsbury Park and Turnpike Lane.

Obviously with a new family in mind, schooling will become a vitally important consideration, and for many people this will mean making sure their new chosen area provides adequate facilities for their own offspring.

In Muswell Hill, there are eight primary schools and two secondary facilities, all of which mean that they will have the chance to check out everything on offer and be sure they are picking something which best suits their own children's needs.

In terms of facilities within the town, there are a number which will prove useful. The Odeon cinema will be a great place for kids and adults alike to catch their favourite new releases, while Alexandra Palace is a venue that will play host to a number of high profile events throughout the year, including darts and music concerts.

The area also borders Alexandra Park, a green area perfect for walks and playing sports, which doubles up as the host for a farmer's market each week, allowing residents the chance to purchase the freshest produce.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801586402-ADNFCR
