The thing is, downsizing and resizing decisions tend to occur around important life changes. Retirement/semi-retirement, starting a family, or even dramatic shifts in career, all these exciting but daunting stages require careful consideration regarding where you live. People want to ensure:
- The cost of living suits their budget
- The style of living suits their interests and tastes
- Family connections can be enjoyed and maintained
Northamptonshire offers superb options for meeting all the above considerations. House prices mean you can get a lot for your money, good news if you don’t actually want less space in this move!! The cost of entertainment and eating out does not suffer from the ‘London effect’. The countryside offers a plethora of activities for those who enjoy the outdoors. And the hub bub of the market towns offers unique experiences including farmers’ markets and boutique style shopping.
With Northamptonshire being so centrally located, both the rail and road networks provide easy access to the rest of the country. Trains rattle through the county down to London, and up to Birmingham and further north. The M1 and the M40 are easily accessible. And with Luton Airport, East Midlands Airport, and Birmingham International Airport all less than an hour’s drive from Northampton, quick flits abroad are never a problem.
