We have particular specialism in following four areas:
Residing within the prestigious London Borough of Richmond, the suburb of Whitton is noted for its 20th Century housing, with its origins dating back to the Victorian era. This was a time when it as referred to as a market garden, due to its production of fruit and flowers.
Though retaining its original village character, Whitton began to grow in size, stature and desirability with the 1931 arrival of the railway. Today it has a bustling yet characterful high street, including outlets for many famous names and brands. In fact, with its 100 shops it boasts the 3rd largest town centre in the Richmond borough. Despite this there are still plentiful green open spaces, including Crane Park and Kneller Gardens, while local schools include a mix of primaries plus the Twickenham Academy, a sports college for 11-16 year-olds.
Handy for the transport hubs of Heathrow and London, being located 10.6 miles west of Charing Cross while being on the Middlesex bank of the River Thames, Hounslow’s origins were as a place for hunting in Anglo Saxon times. In fact it grew around the Holy Trinity Priory, built way back in 1211. Properties now range from detached family-sized Victorian houses to swish modern apartments for one.
A popular area for families, transport links are one of Hounslow’s key selling points. Lying on the A4, the Great West Road and the North Circular, it has no fewer than 47 bus routes and three train stations, including over-ground rail links and the underground. Schools include a varied mix of primaries, secondary schools and community colleges.
Along the River Thames from Brentford we find Isleworth with its mix of new and old-world charm. Local points of interest include Syon House and Park, a 200-acre estate with grounds once designed by Capability Brown and great conservatory popular for parties and weddings, with a swish new hotel and spa within the estate, plus the West Middlesex Hospital close by.
If you’re looking for period charm at an affordable price, Isleworth is the place to view. With a good mix of pubs, its restaurant scene has also grown in recent years. In all, this is a good area in which to invest with the prospect of seeing long-term growth.
This bustling yet leafy suburb is extremely popular with families, while naturally being famous for its rugby stadium that has also in recent years played host to concerts by The Police, Rolling Stones and U2. If it’s classic red-bricked period charm you’re after, there are plenty of Victorian and Edwardian properties and charming side streets here to whet your appetite.
Transport links include access to the M3, M4 and M25 as well as over-land rail services into Central London. Twickenham also has some of the most prestigious schools in the Richmond area, that, when coupled with some great pubs, restaurants and riverside walks, means that it truly boasts something for all.
