Town Centre Living Is Back!
During the national lockdowns, the market saw a dramatic shift in the types of properties that people were looking to buy. Many individuals wanted to move out to the countryside to enjoy the open spaces nearby. However, since the end of 2022, this trend has completely turned around and town centre living is now back.
Why Is Town Centre Living So Appealing?
Living in the countryside offers numerous benefits, however, now that the country has opened back up, we can see that living in towns is still the more popular option. There are a wide range of reasons for this:
Job Opportunities - One of the key factors in choosing where to live is your career. Living in a town gives you many more job opportunities in a variety of different sectors.
Speedy Commutes - With numerous jobs available nearby, your commute to work can be quick and easy. However, even if your workplace is not in the same town, good transport links will make travelling to work simple. Leamington Spa offers close access to the M40, great bus links and a handy train station, which is just a short walk from the centre of town. Trains can get you to London in just over an hour. With public transport so readily available you could even opt not to use your own car at all!
A Wide Variety Of Properties - No matter what kind of property you are looking for, you will be able to find it in town. We have listings suitable for any price range and in various styles and sizes. Our agents will be happy to help you find the ideal town centre property for you.
Amenites And Entertainment - Out in the countryside you have beautiful open fields to walk in, however, when it comes to further entertainment you may find yourself having to travel. Living in town allows you to step out of your front door and find something enjoyable to do or somewhere delicious to stop for a bite or a drink. Plus, shopping won’t require taking a long trip so running out of milk in the morning will no longer mean going without a cup of tea or coffee!
Furthermore, a move to Leamington Spa certainly will not deprive you of beautiful open spaces. The Pump Room Gardens features a beautiful 19th-century bandstand and is host to a variety of funfairs and events throughout the year. Jephson Gardens is beautifully manicured and full of seasonal flowers, there are also several installations, historic monuments and even a glass house full of exotic plants! Victoria Park includes world-renowned bowling greens, adventure playgrounds, free-to-use outdoor gym equipment and more. If you prefer your outdoor spaces a bit less manicured, there is also Newbold Comyn, a 300-acre country park and nature reserve, complete with a bike track, award-winning pub, recreational facilities and more. Not to mention that beautiful open countryside is just a few miles outside the town centre.
The People - Living in the town allows you to meet all kinds of different people from all manner of different backgrounds. Leamington Spa is known for being a particularly friendly place to live so you will have no problem making friends in the area.
