Chiswick is one of the most easterly areas in the London Borough of Hounslow, putting it close to Hammersmith. Surprisingly though the area is quieter and greener than central locations. This makes it a very attractive place to live. It also means there are plenty of opportunities for investors.
An interesting history
In the Middle Ages Chiswick was a popular country retreat favoured by people from Central London. At the same time it was a hotspot for different industrial activity. For example there were a number of farms in the area as well as cheese makers. In addition the village was popular for fishing because of the links to the Thames.
An attractive property scene
Although it may not have the cheapest prices, homes in Chiswick can offer a huge amount of value. Demand is high among young professionals and families. This is because the area has quality riverside homes and plenty of amenities, including highly rated local schools. Consequently, the popularity pushes prices and means plenty of interested buyers and renters.
The property mix in the area is what you would expect from the location and history. There are a number of Victorian and Edwardian detached homes, converted and modern flats, and special Georgian riverside homes. You will be spoilt for choice.
As you would expect of an area so close to Central London, there are an abundance of transport links. The M4 runs through the area, providing a direct link to Heathrow Airport. There are also good bus services in the area. In addition, the local Underground Station is on the District Line and there is an Overground Station too.
If that wasn’t enough to make people want to live in the area, there are plenty of special attractions on offer. For example Kew Gardens is just across the Thames. Chiswick House and Gardens is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve is home to plenty of wildlife and is protected by London Wildlife Trust.
