Located just northeast of Cardiff, Cyncoed is one of the most affluent communities in the region. The average home price is £292,475 and its beautiful neighborhoods are lined with trees which gives Cynceod a small-town feel.

The advantages of living in Cynceod include its setting on high elevation where you can see the surrounding mountains and visit fabled Roath Park which is close by.

Sporting a population of just over 12,000, Heath is one of the more affluent communities in Cardiff with an average home price of £270,000. It may be most famous for Saints Corner and the many streets that are named after saints.

Located on the north side of Cardiff, the most common type of homes were constructed in the 1930s and many have large gardens that face to the south. Trees and plenty of greenery line the streets, especially around the fabled Heath Park. This community is large, thriving, and offers plenty of activities for families seeking the comforts of the suburbs with the closeness to Cardiff itself.
