Quiet commuter haven

For many people, the desire for a quiet life, especially if they are either getting a little older and want to have less of a fast-paced city centre lifestyle, or if they have a young family, can be one of the most important things that they will consider when they decide to move home.

Rural homes can be amongst the most popular homes in the UK, and it was reported towards the end of last year by the Halifax that the average rural property in England was worth £27,000 more than its urban equivalent, as people buy them more often, due to an increase in the desire for a quieter place to live.

Many may desire such a peaceful location to live in, be it so they can just live life without all the pressure of a city, or so they can bring their children up in a place which is not full of fast traffic and a high population.

One town which can offer them this can be found by those looking for property for sale in Hurstpierpoint. This is a village located in West Sussex with a population of around just 6,000 residents. Such a small population means that people living in the village can enjoy a serene sort of lifestyle.

However, many people may still work in the cities, so good transport link are a must for a lot of people when they are choosing where to live. This can be found for people who want to live in Hurstpierpoint, because located just a mile-and-a-half from the village itself is Hassocks Railway Station. From there, the cities of London and Brighton, where many people may work, are just an hour and ten minutes away respectively.

People who choose to move to the village can also find themselves revelling in the summer in the vibrant St Lawrence Fair, where locals make floats and other celebratory attractions to carry or drive down the main street.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801256614-ADNFCR
