Commuters can enjoy the best of both worlds in Chelmsford

Over the past few years savvy buyers have been moving out of London in search of larger properties within a commutable distance of the Capital. This wave of buyers can enjoy the best of both worlds, good City jobs with the benefits of commuting back to beautiful rural towns and all that they have to offer – larger properties, great transport links, good schools, access to the countryside, all bringing a slightly slower pace of life, which is perfect if you are looking to bring up a family.

Chelmsford is very popular with commuters as it offers a 40-minute journey to London Liverpool Street, with an annual season ticket costing £4,748. In Chelmsford the average home currently costs £275,000, a rise of 17% in the past two years, still way below the average property price in London, which is now above the £600,00 mark, giving a property buyer the potential savings of £300,000 by moving to Chelmsford.

King Edward VI Grammar School, Chelmsford has been classed as one of the top secondary schools in the UK, which is for boys only until the sixth form, but girls can go to the highly reputed Chelmsford Girls School. There are also great sports facilities and a good mix of shops including High Street chains and local shops, as well as a great choice of restaurants, bars, pubs and coffee shops.  Chelmsford is also only a 20 minutes drive away from London Stansted and is surrounded by rolling Essex countryside.
