having spent some time reading through the various posts I would be grateful for your views on where to live ...
My boyfriend and I are corporate lawyers who work long hours. We need to be relatively close to the central as will often be travelling home late night. We currently live in London and would like for our commute to be less than 30 mins (via public transport in the mornings, cabs at night). We are both under 35, with no immediate plans for children.
We currently live across the road from a large park in London in a fairly spacious flat with a large kitchen and enjoy access to the open space, fresh air and greenery. The park is close to a busy high street with a multitude of bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets, with a few night spots thrown in for good measure. It takes us 15 minutes to get to the West End/Central London.
Having heard conflicting stories about quality of apartments in the mid-levels and access to facilities up there (being spoiled now - a pool would be nice) - is there an alternative area that offers all the things we currently enjoy? (For those familiar with London, we live in Clapham, just near the common). Our budget is up to about $35k a month.
Ultimately, we want to live in a vibey area but not feel too claustrophobic with easy access to our respective offices. Looking to rent from Dec.
many thanks in advance.
