If you’re thinking of renting a property in London, then we recommend the area of Kew is pretty high up your list. Made up of seven brand new buildings, the Kew Bridge West development is successfully adding a touch of modern class to a historic area in West London. The two combined together make for a fine example of contemporary London living.
Built by UK developer St James, Kew Bridge West has been designed to represent a typical London city lifestyle surrounded by leafy tranquillity; it’s no surprise that our office in nearby Ealing is seeing an increased demand for apartments in the wider Kew area. Kew Bridge West has been designed with a special emphasis on light, space and creativity, meaning tenants living there can enjoy and make the most of their luxury surroundings.
Inside the development you can expect sleekly-designed apartments to rent which are ideal for professionals with a busy city lifestyle. You’ll find tasteful accommodation in the form of one and two bedroom units which are all decorated to a high standard, with the receptions benefiting from stylish wood floors and wide floor-to-ceiling windows that lead out to a private balcony. Bathrooms and kitchens have an ultra-modern look, while the bedrooms will get you making excuses just to take a quick nap.
You can enjoy the surroundings of a lush landscaped garden that is situated in the development, as well as the amenities you’d come to expect from new developments, such as a dedicated 24-hour concierge, residents’ gym and swimming pool – ideal for keeping fit or just having a quick refreshing splash. Suddenly that hard day at the office doesn’t seem so tough anymore.
The Kew area itself is one of the main draws; situated literally across the road from the River Thames and just a few minutes’ walk from Kew Village, residents at Kew Bridge West have a wealth of options available to them. Whether you want to take a stroll around the beautiful Kew Gardens enjoying the lush greenery and beautiful glass houses, enjoy Sunday lunch in one of the quaint 18th century pubs, explore the boutique shops and all the delightful things they have to offer, or dine at one of the many chic restaurants – there are a wealth of activities and it’s a getaway from the busy London hustle, yet still close enough for quick access to the city.
Talking of quick access; Kew Bridge Station is just a short walk from the development and offers fantastic travel links right into the heart of London. Located in Zone 3, trains take just 30 minutes to arrive at Waterloo and Victoria, meaning you’re never far away from all the major hubs of the capital.
The area also benefits from a good bus network and is just a short journey away from Chiswick, which just happens to be bursting with trendy shops and classy restaurants. Drivers can definitely take advantage of some weekend trips out of London; we’re thinking a cosy break in the Cotswolds or a quick trip to the beautiful city of Oxford. Heathrow Airport is around a 20 minute drive, if you’re feeling like spreading your international wings. All these options and more are easily accessible with the M4/A40 located close to the development.
With rentals starting at £325 per week for a one bedroom apartment and £425 per week for a typical two bedroom apartment, this is a great time to move to an area that offers London village living, surrounded in scenic greenery and a slice of history.
