Season 73, Episode 9

Looking to Escape their Grueling Commute, a Family Moves out of Manhattan's Burbs and into Scotland

Before they were married, Donna and Gary loved the conveniences of living in New York City. But after the birth of their second daughter, their living quarters became cramped. And in a city where space was a premium, they couldn't afford to upsize. So like many young families living in Manhattan, the couple were pushed out of the city and into the suburbs. In Westchester County, Gary and Donna bought a large house with a spacious backyard for the kids. But, commuting to their jobs in the city was difficult, and the hour long train ride to and from their offices was taking a toll on family time. So when Gary's company offered a transfer to Edinburgh, Scotland, they jumped at the chance to return to urban life, and reside in an affordable city with reasonable commutes. But when the family landed on UK soil, they realized prices in Scotland's capital were higher than they expected. And getting a downtown apartment with four bedrooms and a garden cost more than their 2,400 dollars a month budget. Find out if they sacrifice size, location or cost when House Hunters International seeks city living in Edinburgh, Scotland.
