Hammersmith is a popular area of West London offering something for everybody. It contains the shops, attractions and businesses you would expect from a busy urban setting, but still has beautiful riverside walks and green parks to cut through the hustle and bustle. The contrast makes this area distinctive for the centre of the capital. Add to this the excellent transport links, and you have a location that is attractive to a very wide array of buyers.
The history of Hammersmith has played a big role in shaping the property market in the area. Over the years the district has been home to many different industries, including a sugar refinery, a lamp factory and a distillery. The industrial nature of the area led to the creation of rows and rows of large period properties, which have proved very attractive to families.
At the other end of the spectrum there is a wide array of flats to choose from. A number of previously commercial and industrial properties have been regenerated to make many homes. Some of the large period houses have also undergone this transformation. There are also numerous modern builds to choose from.
Homes with views of the river are always in demand, especially the period townhouses. The view adds a premium to values and can attract buyers looking for a home that offers something special. These properties can prove to be a good investment for the future.
Hammersmith is a great area if you are looking for a home to invest in. The prices in the district are cheaper than nearby Kensington, with the average at £1.09 million as opposed to £2.1 million. In the last year the prices have grown and new developments, particularly regeneration work, could drive them up further.
