Living directly in the city isn’t for everyone. It’s busy, it’s loud, and it has a vibe of being fast-paced. Small towns give off very different vibes. Small towns run at a more laid-back pace. Your neighbors take the time to talk to you. Kids run around and play together on the quieter streets. For some people, small towns just fit their lifestyle better. But what if your job is in London? What about all of the wonderful conveniences that come with living in a city, like shopping, quick take out, and entertainment? Well, Timberwalk has the best of both worlds. It’s located in Ilderton, but is just five minutes away from London, which means that you get to live in a small town while enjoying the proximity of city amenities.
