A popular new Kingston upon Thames development

Queenshurst has quickly become one of the most highly-sought developments in the south west of London. The new homes are proving to be some of the best options for property investment Kingston upon Thames has to offer. There are several important reasons why.


The development is situated in the heart of the busiest area in the whole Borough. Therefore it is close to shops, leisure options, and good transport links to Central London. The town is also suburban, benefiting from good open spaces and close proximity to the Thames.

Great schools

The big selling point for the area is the close proximity to some of the highest rated school in the area. There are some of the best state schools to choose from, whether it is primaries like St Luke’s or secondaries like Tiffin. In addition there are colleges and even Kingston University London.

All of this makes the area a fantastic one for families. People with younger children tend to favour moving to Kingston. This is because their kids can progress through different top-rated schools and get a great education.

A new development

Queenshurst offers 320 homes ranging in size from studios to three-bedroom flats that could be perfect for families. There are even 55 homes for shared ownership, meaning there are some affordable options.

Work on the site got underway in 2015. The first two phases are complete and the final part of the project will finish next year. The popularity of the properties is already established with all of the three bedroom flats sold. Smaller families looking for two bedrooms still have some opportunities though.

Community facilities

As well as homes the development of the former gasworks will have some fantastic facilities for the community. There will also be some dedicated retail spaces on the site. These could become shops, restaurants, or even space for a local art school to use. In addition there is a new park, creating a local open space. The main building will have a gym and cinema.
