Riverside living: Chiswick

From redeveloped industrial docklands to traditional London villages, living on The River Thames offers something for everyone. First in our Riverside Living series, we talk to Paul Cooney, sales manager of KFH’s Chiswick branch about the many charms of this riverside locale.

Bricks and mortar

With the average house price currently standing at £938,400*, Chiswick offers a wide range of property along the river, from charming eighteenth century houses to modern apartments. Buyers looking at homes along the river tend to either be downsizing from Central London or professionals wanting to secure a bolthole in London.

Education

Chiswick offers an abundance of excellent schools. Highlights include Belmont Primary School and Grove Park Primary School, both rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Heathfield House School, a fee paying preparatory school, and Chiswick School, a secondary school with academy status.

The commute

Situated in Zone 2, Turnham Green underground station provides easy access into the City via the District Line. Alternatively, six trains per hour run to London Waterloo from Chiswick railway station.

Green spaces

Overlooking The River Thames, Dukes Meadows sports venue offers a myriad of activities, including golf courses, a driving range and outdoor tennis courts. The stunning landmark Chiswick House boasts restored eighteenth century gardens, which are open from 7am until dusk every day.

Where to go

There are numerous fantastic pubs and restaurants lining the river, including The City Barge, The Bulls Head and The Bell & Crown. The riverfront is also very popular for relaxing Sunday strolls and picnics.

Looking to the future

Post Brexit, the market has seen a slight shift. While some buyers are approaching the market with caution, others are taking advantage and quickly securing properties and I expect we’ll see the usual uplift in activity as we head into the autumn.
