A LUSSO HOMES GUIDE TO: EALING
With construction of our brand new development - The Park in Ealing - well underway, Lusso Homes takes a look at a few reasons why the leafy London suburb has been a firm favourite with families and young professionals alike for decades.
As one of London’s greenest boroughs, Ealing has been an attractive, long-term destination for families since the 19th Century. Due to its array of double fronted Victorian and Edwardian detached family homes, Ealing has been fondly named ‘Queen of the Suburbs’. This nickname has allowed the housing demand to grow steadily over time, creating a much sought after area from both a residential and investment perspective. For the younger professionals, the buzzing restaurants and bars, festivals, and art groups offer plenty of entertainment as well. Not to mention that it is the location of the first ever Nando’s! And, with the arrival of the Crossrail just around the corner, in 2019 the leafy suburb of Ealing will only be an 11 minute commute away from Central London.
In addition to the Crossrail, Ealing is one of the best-connected locations in London. With connections to both Central London and Heathrow achievable in under 20 minutes, Ealing provides a hub of transportation. Wherever you are in Ealing, you are never far away from an underground station. The Piccadilly, District and Central line all serve the borough of Ealing, whilst The Great Western Train will get you into Paddington in 10 minutes. Road users also benefit from easy access to the M40, M4, A40, M3, M1 and M25, whilst the Western Avenue runs directly into Central London.
Ealing is teeming with parks and greenery and also boasts average car park charging that is roughly 15% lower than London. In addition to these benefits, Ealing offers award-winning education providing an excellent mixture of both state and private schools as well as Ealing Independent College which was announced as the best performing West London College for producing top grades in 2015.
Ealing Studios also attracts many a famous face and you can't walk the streets without running into a film crew. This is mainly down to the proximity to the BBC Television Centre but also due its Ealing Comedy heritage. The humble London suburb is called ‘home’ by famous folk such as; Shappi Khorsandi, Juilan Clary, Director - Steve McQueen, John McVie, Jay Kay (Jamiroquai) & Pete Townsend.
Ealing being set to become one of the most prestigious London boroughs by2020, meaning that investing now will allow for a good profit!
