But my partner and I want to move across town to be closer to our daughter, who just got married.

Vivienne, I wish you all the luck in the world, and if I may a word of caution. How certain are you that your daughter and SIL will stay in that house? Jobs change, transfers happen, people move. And frankly, divorces happen. Your moving closer could put some pressure on these kids. Make sure you all are on the same page before you move to be near them and then they move away.

If you really love your current home, maybe give moving a year or two to see what happens.
