Southgate: Ideal for the commuting London worker

Southgate: Ideal for the commuting London worker

If you are working in London and thinking about starting a family, the chances are that you will be looking for something outside the city itself that will not only let you spend less on your accommodation, but also allows you to live somewhere more conducive to raising children in a peaceful settlement.

This is the sort of solution that you will be able to find when seeking out property for sale in Southgate. The Enfield area is ideal for commuters with just eight miles between it and Charing Cross, while it also gives a far quieter place to live for families and parents to be.

Obviously, for people moving to this settlement, the first consideration will be travel to make sure that getting to work each day is bearable. In Southgate, commuters will find that there is a tube station, one of the most picturesque on the network, which will take them to the office in a matter of minutes each morning.

Young professionals might also be concerned that moving out of London will mean moving away from the nightlife they have become accustomed to, but there is still plenty on offer in Southgate and the surrounding areas.

For example, music lovers will be able to enjoy some of the world's top touring artists at O2 Brixton Academy and the O2 Arena with just a short travel, while the Odeon cinema at Leicester Square, an iconic scene of many top premieres, is just a few miles away by tube.

Other highlights back in the town itself include the likes of the shopping district at Chase Side, which is modern and extensive, meaning residents can get all they need without a need to go into the city. There is also a decent range of restaurants and bars that will be ideal for people looking to enjoy an evening or a day on the weekend away from their home.

And when the sun comes out in the summer, locals can head to Grovelands Park, where they will be able to enjoy a large green area that is perfect for dog walking, playing sports, or even having a nice picnic.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801603900-ADNFCR
