Me and the OH want to move out of London. The dilemma is I'm from North London so want to move to Hertfordshire but he's from South London so wants to move to Surrey, which I'm not too keen on. So, need some great areas to show to the OH.
We have a budget of £700,000 could possibly go a little higher for the right place.
What towns in Hertfordshire and surrounding areas could we find nice detached houses with at least 5 or 4 bedrooms and a big garden also good private schools?
We both drive so don't necessarily need to be that close but would like some activity spots for adults and Children. I like St Albans and Harpenden but couldn't see any areas where the houses give enough space.
Would be nice to be within 60 minutes commute from a main London train station but will still have apartment in London for weekdays so willing to be a little further out.
Any suggestions of areas? I've done some research but really looking for personal opinions and advice!
You could definitely get a 4 bed detached in Hitchin for your budget. You might get a 5 bed but likely it would need a bit of work or be in a less desirable location. 30 min into King's Cross, excellent state schools, maybe less choice for independents.
