My husband and I are looking to move from our flat BTC and purchase a larger home to start a family. Unfortunately BTC isn't in our price range, with the exception of a few properties towards Chivalry, Buckmaster and Auckland road. Does anyone have any experience of this area? We walked around late on Saturday night, and were slightly concerned about proximity to Northcote road with noise/ potential crime levels .... although this might just be atypical celebrations before the new 6 person rule comes into effect.
The alternative would be to look to the north side of clapham common where the schools seem equivocal and things might be slightly quieter. Any experiences, suggestions or recommendations would be most welcome!
