10 rural commuter apartments for sale within walking distance of a train station


Any seasoned commuter will tell you that it’s usually not the train itself that makes a commute to an area not worth the trouble, but the invisible rides posted at either end – the last train through London or the morning overland drive to the station.

All around 20 minutes’ walk from a train station with direct services to London, our selection of commuter homes for sale combine the best of rural living with (relatively) hassle-free travel.

While the time savings aren’t significant, the daily parking savings could take the sting out of the annual pass.
