There is no denying that London is one of the hottest places to live in the UK and London property prices have always reflected this. But considering how many different areas there are in London, where is the best place to move to in and near the capital?
Whilst the centre of London is still popular with people looking for a slice of city life, many people are being pushed out with the continuous rise in London property prices. According to RightMove, the average price for a property in Central London is £1,307,294, which is just not an option for most people. But, there are affordable ways to still enjoy this city life, as well as benefit from the amount of green space surrounding counties have to offer.
Areas such as the London Borough of Sutton offer the best of both worlds and might just be the ideal place for you to buy your next property.
The London Borough of Sutton is one that has plenty of appeal and charm. Formerly a part of Surrey; this borough still retains a whole of host of characteristics that make it a welcome contrast from some of the hustle and bustle of central London life.
In fact, there are 89 parks in the area ranging from compact city parks right up to expansive areas of green that are just perfect for a day in the sunshine. Not only does it boast these fantastic areas of green, but villages such as Carshalton with its blend of big city culture and small town charms is the ideal place for those who are looking to start a family.
