I'm in a quandry. We are about to exchange contracts on a lovely house which is in a semi rural location , with nice big garden but away from friends and school. Due to after school activities and 4 children I am back and forward most nights. BUT 3 houses have now come up for sale on estate were school is and I feel that it would be so much more practical to live there, but these are newer houses which dh doesn't like but it is me doing all the running around. House in countryside is lovely and has real fire and fields at back etc but will I regret not going for one near school ?
Across from school.
Did I mention somewhere before how much I hate commuting ... always swore I would live walking distance to my children's primary school. PollyLogos said it well. The less chaffeuring you have to do when they're a bit older & want to go see their friends, the better.
Went to look at estate ones today and have decided to go for semi rural after going back there this evening and sitting in garden ( vendor on holiday) and deciding how tranquil it was. School 1.5 miles away so can walk at a push. Do think I would always regret if we didn't.
