The best of London living in the ‘Queen of Suburbs’

As the fourth largest Borough in London, Ealing is a thriving West London neighbourhood known for its leafy green surroundings and multicultural vibe. The area is also well-connected to central London and offers residents a quick commute via Tube and Rail including the Elizabeth line (Crossrail). With its open green spaces and excellent connectivity, Ealing also caters to the urban lifestyle of its residents with modern amenities, including supermarkets, restaurants, parks, sports and entertainment venues.

Ealing has witnessed incredible development while staying rooted in its reputation as a green neighbourhood. With Uxbridge Road’s tree-lined walkways along the famous Ealing Common, a 47-acre public space, residents and visitors have plenty of peaceful retreats nearby. The gated Walpole Park features an 18th-century manor house and two ponds, while the adjacent Lammas Park has a massive playground and tennis courts encouraging an outdoor lifestyle.

Connectivity at its best

Despite being a Zone 3 station, Ealing Broadway is conveniently close to central London via the Elizabeth Line, Central, Piccadilly and District lines. Bond Street’s shopping and the West End’s theatreland are just 15 minutes away via Crossrail, while the financial and business hub of Liverpool Street can be reached in under half an hour.

Ealing Broadway also provides direct services to Heathrow Airport, Paddington and Reading. In addition to a quick rail commute, residents of Ealing also benefit from excellent bus routes that link nearby areas such as Acton, Greenford and Brentford. Motorists travelling outside London will find roads such as the M4, M40 and A40 useful links connecting to Oxford, Birmingham and South Wales.

The Grade I-listed Pitzhanger Manor House is a famous historic landmark in the area, attracting thousands of visitors eager to learn about the history of English country homes. For foodies, Nando’s, Santa Maria and Turtle Bay are top options to sample a spectrum of culinary delights.

Property options and rental demand

As connectivity improved after the opening of the Elizabeth Line, property prices and rental demand in the Borough have seen a significant boost. Families with children enjoy the leafy surroundings and collection of outstanding schools within Ealing. With the average asking rent for one-bed apartments close to £2,000 per month, postcodes within Acton and Hanwell have consistently delivered above-average yields of close to 5%.

Ealing was traditionally the preferred property choice for locals working in the financial and technology districts of the city, but the arrival of new property developments offering world-class amenities has made the area also attractive to international tenants seeking corporate relocation. Developments such as The Verdean, Filmworks Walk and Berkeley’s Dickens Yard, where we also have an on-site branch, are among the most sought-after new builds in Ealing.

From luxurious one, two and three-bedroom apartments to semi-detached townhouses and spacious family homes, investors and residents can choose from a wide range of property options in this West London neighbourhood.
