Prime position for commuter families

Living in London city centre itself is something which is often reserved for those who are still young, and want to take the chance to enjoy the nightlife while they live near to where they work, really becoming part of the professional lifestyle. As people get older though, a quieter area which still lies close to the city is a great place to move with a family.

One town which perfectly encapsulates this need can be discovered if you are seeking out property for sale in Basildon. The Essex town is located near other popular suburban towns such as Billericay, Chelmsford and Wickford. It has a population of around 170,000, and is perfectly located to be a commuter town, thanks to it being located a mere 25 miles from the centre of London.

One of the biggest requirements for an efficient commuter town is that it has good transport links to the busier areas of the country, which Basildon does.

Pitsea railway station, Basildon railway station and Laindon railway station will all take commuters into London, with Fenchurch Street station being reachable from Basildon by rail in around half an hour only, making it a perfect distance for a daily travel.

Another factor which families may wish to consider is the quality of education that they can find in any potential new area. With Basildon being located so close to London, it has a high number of schools serving it, both within the town and those which surround it.

By far the best performing school in the area is Woodford School, which has been awarded a rating of "Outstanding" by OFSTED, thanks to its higher than average A*- C pass rates, meaning that parents can rest assured that their children will be receiving a good education if they should move to the town.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801327745-ADNFCR
