Why move to Coulsdon?
Located deep in South London, Coulsdon is in close proximity to the neighbouring towns of Purley and Croyden, and is the perfect commuter location for those who appreciate quiet leafy green streets and open countryside, but who still want all the perks of a convenient commute into the center of London.
South Coulsdon is handily located on the edge of Zone 6 and with three railway stations running into London Bridge or Victoria and the M23 and M25 just down the road, you won’t be stuck for a way into the big smoke, whether it’s for work, shopping or to catch a West End show.
Coulsdon also has a thriving high-street at its centre, and a much more traditional secondary centre called Old Coulsdon where a mellow and laid-back countryside atmosphere can be felt. However with such great transport links, the hubbub of London never feels too far away.
This area has the ideal mix of new and modern amenities, alongside the more old-fashioned English town feel that comes from a cricket-pitch, village green and even a medieval church.
In terms of bang for your buck, Coulsdon is a super place to settle down and raise a family. The town has a great sense of community, with plenty of kids clubs and groups to keep the little ones occupied, not to mention the beautiful parks and open spaces all around. A number of schools are local to the area, including Byron Primary, Coulsdon Church of England Primary School and Chipstead Valley Primary School, and for the older kids, there is Coulsdon Sixth Form College.
With wide pavements and a whole host of cafes you’ll easily find a spot from which to watch one of the many London to Brighton rallies that goes through the town, or you can visit the nearby crazy golf course or the Memorial Gardens.
A sleepy English village that has all the perks of big city life close-by, Coulsdon could be the perfect place to start the next chapter in your life.
