What's the best place to live?
What’s the best place to live in the UK? You might think it would be impossible to answer such a question. After all, surely the answer always depends on what you, personally, think makes a place attractive? So how on earth could you possibly come up with an answer?
To help you do just that - find the best neighbourhoods in the country, using your own individual criteria for defining what ‘best’ is - a new type of property search engine called Findahood.com has been launched.
Instead of being restricted to looking for homes that are a certain size, in a certain place or for a certain price, you describe your perfect neighbourhood. Then the site finds it for you, based on a wide range of raw data from official sources such as the Office for National of Statistics, the Department of Communities and Local Government, the Land Registry and the Department of Education.
Today, MSN has been given exclusive access to the data gathered by Findahood.com and so, for the first time, we can reveal the 10 best places to live in England and Wales in 2014 - along with peek inside an average-priced property on sale in those areas.
You may find the results surprising. We certainly did!
