Looking For Lower Crime Rates? Try Living In The Country

It’s no secret that crime rates are lower in the countryside than in the cities. Many people believe that if you work in London, you also need to have city living. However, new developments are making it easier for people to live a country lifestyle whilst still having access to the City. Here’s an example of a new housing development that would be perfect for city commuters.

Brookmans is a wonderful new, well designed development of houses for sale in Brookmans Park near Potters Bar, Hertfordshire; near to Potters Bar and Hatfield. The company in charge of this is Origin Properties; they operate from offices in Central London. All of the homes have an outstanding contemporary look to them; the homes also have cutting edge architecture. These homes were carefully and thoughtfully designed by MH architects.

The homes are either detached, terrace or end of terrace. These homes already have Bosch integrated kitchen appliances, and bathroom sanity ware from Laufen and Villeroy & Boch. The kitchens are modern styled Waterford kitchens. The starting price of these homes is £699,950.

The areas are family friendly with low crime rates, as proved by the national crime statistics; this means you would be part of a friendly community, in a beautiful country setting. Also nearby there are three schools which are Brookmans park primary school, Dame Alice Owen and Chancellors; all of which are great quality, high rated schools. 92% of Dame Alice Owens most recent leavers got 5A*-C grades on their GCSEs; this does include their maths and English. There is a local bus service, bus 610, which will be able to drop pupils off near school. There is also a train station roughly two minutes away which provides direct transport to Kings Cross and Central London; it would take about 28minutes on the train direct to Kings Cross.

There is stuff close by for the family to do such as a library if you like to read, 204 acres of park land if you want to go on a quiet walk or bike ride and Gobions wood with a licensed fishing lake for those who enjoy it. There are also nature reserves and a private members golf club nearby; as well as Brookmans Gastro pub if you and the family want to go out for a meal or just a drink.  If you don’t fancy doing any of these then you can also get the train to Central London, and do something there instead. Also nearby there’s shops if you need to get any food or anything, there is a traditional butchers, fishmongers, bakery and a post office too.
