Ealing: The family friendly area of London

Ealing: The family friendly area of LondonBackground

For those who want to look at flats to rent slightly out of the centre of London, the borough of Ealing could be the perfect choice.

Situated in the west of the capital and nestled between Brent and Hounslow, it is a large area boasting a significant amount of green spaces. This, along with its larger-sized abodes, makes it ideal for families looking for flats to rent with plenty of space and easy access to the city.

The borough is divided into Ealing and North Ealing, with many properties located along Ealing Common. A great deal of the homes are from Victorian and Edwardian times, which means they boast an old-fashioned charm as well as space and desirability.

Larger properties are also available in the Montpelier Park and Brentham areas, while West Ealing offers some of the most affordable housing in the borough - ideal for those who want city living without the hefty price tag.

Properties

So, why are flats to rent in the London borough of Ealing a good idea for people hoping to move to the area? You only have to look at the savings to be made to see.

The average cost of a one-bedroom apartment in the area ranges from £758 per month to £1,105 per month, while a two-bedroom abode will set you back £1,400 per month and a three-bedroom flat comes in at an average of £1,725.

In comparison, the average cost of a house in the UK in June 2010 was £166,072. This was a 0.1 per cent increase on the previous month and 8.4 per cent higher than June 2009. With house prices seemingly on the rise, perhaps this could be even more of an incentive to look at flats to rent in the London borough of Ealing.

Transport

To enable residents to get into the centre of London, the borough of Ealing is serviced by three Tube lines - District, Central and Piccadilly. These cover the length of the area, stopping at Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common and South Ealing. A Tube ride takes approximately 20 to 25 minutes, meaning it is an easy commute for city workers.

Alternatively, there are bus links into the capital, while the Tube stops, which are located in zone three, are not far from Heathrow Airport for any holidaymakers living in flats to rent in Ealing.

For those who prefer to drive, it is a manageable 25 minute journey into the centre of London by car.

Entertainment and local amenities

In keeping with its suburban style, Ealing has a lot to offer people renting properties in the area by way of shops, schools and entertainment. Along Broadway, fashionistas can find an abundance of stores, from well-known names in the large malls to smaller, trendy boutiques.

Children of a primary and secondary school age are catered for, while both the locals and newcomers to the area are friendly and welcoming, with a diverse mix of cultures represented.

For those looking at properties to rent in West London, Ealing could be the ideal location.
