Sought after northeastern suburb
Northern suburb with good shops, bars and restaurants. Brent Cross Shopping centre. Good access to M1 and North
Solid, respectable haunts of the wealthy. Located between both Hyde and Regents Parks and on the doorstop of the West End's sights and attractions, Mayfair and St. James's have remained the desired location of rich bankers, embassy staff and wealthy internationals for generations. Large red brick, Georgian and Victorian mansions provide grand, serviced flats and apartments in Mayfair. Shepherds Market to the south has a number of small cottages and mews properties. St. James's boasts a number of substantial, smart homes although much of its property is now used as offices. The Jubilee Line service to Docklands has attracted young bankers looking for flats to rent. Much of the area is owned by the Grosvenor Estate and hence long leases are rare.
Carved up by the busy A40, tube and train lines and home to roads of mid war semis and blocks of flats, Greenford and Northolt may provide the dullest roads in Ealing, yet their excellent transport links ensure the areas popularity as a source of value for money family homes. Northolt is generally cheaper than Greenford. Home to a lot of ex-council property.
Village atmosphere centred between Greenwich Park and the river. Good restaurants and bars. Close to the Millenium Dome and several tourist attractions. Lively local market specialising in organic produce, arts and crafts
Suburban area offering rows of semi detached and x-council property. Suitable for families and populated by local folk.
Red and brown brick facades with shallow bays dominate Gunnersbury, interspersed with stone-clad terraces and the odd gable-ended detached home. Council-built properties sit comfortably with the altruistic housing of other organisations and with its own tube station and a high street along Old Oak Common Lane this is very much a self-contained zone.
