When it comes to choosing somewhere to live, many people in Canberra have to make the decision between north and south, or one town centre to another, a small town or a bigger city. While the ‘big smoke’ and Canberra lifestyle has much to offer, an increasing number of people are making the leap to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and instead settling down in some of the beautiful and very welcoming small towns that surround our region.
The appeal of living in a country village is enticing. Driving home each day, the rolling landscapes of the surrounding countryside greet you, the changing colours of the sky inspire calmness, and the home fire’s burning welcomes you.
The fresh air in winter is crisp, the frosts are heavy and beautiful with blankets of white as far as one can see. The summer evening breeze cools the sunburnt earth, the leafy vine covered verandah a lovely spot to unwind as the day ends.
A country vista surrounds the quiet village streets of Sutton, a community focused village with thriving bakery, local Pony Club, St Peter’s Church and Sutton Primary School.
By far one of the most compelling benefits of living in a small town is the undeniable sense of community that develops. A strong sense of community fosters community ties, connected living and a safe environment.
