I’m hoping for some advice from others who have been in a similar situation as us, as well as help from anyone who has any suggestions.
My husband and I own a small two bed flat in Wandsworth Common. We love the area, we have family walking distance who do lots childcare for us, not to mention lots of friends nearby. I work close by - all in all it’s dreamy.
However, we can’t afford anything bigger. We are stretched as it is with changes in job circumstance since we got our mortgage. We have a two year old, we want more babies ASAP but feel totally at a loss as to what to do with regards to our next move. Our flat is very small - think galley kitchen and bathroom. We are desperate for some outside space, despite being close to the common and are bursting at the seams.
Did anyone else make the move out of London? And where to? We are clueless as to where we might go to afford a house in an area which feels friendly, fun and green. We love Wandsworth common so much but less keen on the surrounding, cheaper areas. So it would be a case of moving somewhere with a similar vibe which is less expensive than WC with other young families. Any ideas? Would we regret the move, I would be utterly terrified to make the move. Our other option is to try and find a 3 bed flat as near as possible to here but we’ve found the outside space is non existent. Help!!!
