Southgate could offer perfect balance

Southgate could offer perfect balance

London's Southgate area could be the ideal location for anyone  looking to purchase a home that offers space and is within easy reach of the capital's centre.

Property for sale in Southgate has always been very popular with those who work in the heart of London and therefore need to visit the city on a daily basis. However, Southgate still offers good value for money compared to many other immediate suburbs.

The area benefits from regular London Underground services and Southgate is around eight miles from Charing Cross - so a very bearable and affordable regular commute.

One of the advantages of living on the fringes of the capital is that prices are slightly more favourable, even though all the benefits of London are close by. Perfect for theatre lovers, live music fans or nightclub regulars who do not have to compromise by relocating or renting within more central areas.

Of course, Southgate has a number of facilities, including a range of retailers along Chase Side. Plus there are also a good choice of restaurants and bars, which means it isn't always necessary to take a trip to the big city to have an enjoyable night out.

Real ales fans will be pleased by Southgate's six local establishments that are the ideal place to enjoy a quiet pint and a bite to eat.

Many families will be interested in finding out more about the local education options in the area. The closest is the Southgate School, which has been classed as outstanding by government inspector Ofsted. The surrounding area of Enfield also offers further choice for parents looking for a school for their offspring to attend.

Meanwhile, there is also the chance to enjoy a whole host of sporting attractions by joining variosu clubs, including cricket, hockey, football and rugby teams. In addition, there is a modern leisure centre, which offers locals a swimming pool and the opportunity to take a variety of exercise classes.

For those who prefer the outdoor life, then Grovelands Park is a great place to relax, walk the dog or enjoy a picnic - especially during those favourable summer months.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801819516-ADNFCR
