Back to basics – let your kids walk to school when you move to the right area
Community can mean so much – the right catchment area, walking to and from school, best friends living just a stone’s throw away. Setting up home near a school can bring your family all of these, and with schools come transport links and a family-friendly environment even those members who have left education can enjoy. With this in mind, we’ve collected a number of houses ideally set within close proximity to schools.
Sackville Gardens, Hove
Near to several schools, including St Christopher’s St Andrew’s C of E Primary and West Hove Infant, is this glorious three storey semi-detached residence with room for six bedrooms, two receptions rooms, a good sized conservatory, a fitted kitchen/breakfast room and a west-backing mature rear garden. Packed with period features, it’s slap bang in the middle of Hove and all of those wonderful conveniences and amenities. Smashing!
Belfast Street, Hove
On the same road as St Andrew’s C of E Primary School and just around the corner from a plethora of after school classes is this extremely well presented end of terrace house. Arranged over three floors and with accommodation offering three bedrooms, a fabulous living/dining room, a modern kitchen as well as a south/west-facing patio garden and garage, this home has the location and the finish of your ideal home.
Underdown Road, Southwick
Within half a mile of Kings Manor Community College and Glebe Community Middle School is this gorgeous spacious home. Offering four bedrooms, one bathroom, a large open-plan kitchen/diner and a lovely reception room, as well as outdoor space to the front and back for entertaining, this charming home by Southwick Green is ready for your family to arrive.
>Cubitt & West
Danworth Lane, Hurstpierpoint
Living down a country lane you’d be forgiven for thinking this rural idyll would mean a sacrifice on convenience, but you’d be wrong. Within walking distance is Hurstpierpoint College, educator of all ages, as well as all of the attractions of Hurstpierpoint village itself. With four bedroom, two bathrooms and a wealth of period features, this charming home really does offer the best of both worlds.
Balfour Road, Brighton
Keep an eye on your kids by making sure yours is the one everyone wants to come back to. This beautiful semi-detached property is well located for seven local primary and secondary schools, and has the most fabulous 300’ garden ripe for running, jumping and having the most fun. The house itself requires modernisation throughout but offers four bedrooms, an open fire in the living room and lots of potential.
