Living in Chiswick

Published Oct 11, 2013 – 2 mins read

Less than half an hour on the tube from Zone 1 and you arrive in attractive, leafy and stylish Chiswick. This affluent west London suburb is very popular among young professionals and families alike. Living in Chiswick is desirable – it has a ‘village’ feel combined with good transport links: District Line, London Overground, mainline trains and many bus routes into central London and out to nearby areas such as Kew Gardens and Richmond Park. For drivers, the M4 offers easy access to Heathrow Airport and the west countryside.

Chiswick High Road is brimming with gastro pubs, cafes, bars, high street shops and boutiques. The High Road has a great selection of family friendly options plus a wealth of trendy bars and brasseries for the evening, including High Road House of the coveted Soho House Group, as well as two Michelin-starred restaurants.

Chiswick is situated by the river, which is popular with both residents and visitors for ambling walks along the Thames Path, cosy pubs and admiring the stunning Georgian houses that look out across the water to Barnes.

One of the suburb’s best assets is the real sense of community you gain from living in Chiswick, both physically and virtually. The website boasts many users and is a font of all knowledge for anything W4 based. It is an active area with more than six health clubs and gyms to choose from, all with state of the art facilities. Chiswick Farmers and Fine Foods Market is held every Sunday morning at Grove Park Farm House.

With good schools and many beautiful parks it is not surprising that living in Chiswick is currently so popular – in fact, it is the most popular west London suburb to buy in. From modern apartments and mansion flats to pretty Victorian cottages, large Edwardian and Victorian detached houses and elegant riverside Georgian houses, Chiswick offers properties to suit every taste. With demand for the area high and reluctance for current residents to leave, finding a property here can be difficult and fast paced, so guidance and local market knowledge is essential.
