The lively and family-oriented neighbourhood of Ealing is located in the North-West part of London, between Wembley at the North and Chiswick at the South. As real estate prices in zone 1 and 2 have risen since 2008 crisis, Ealing is now very famous for British and international families for its high-quality life and its proximity from the London city centre.
According to local residents, Ealing offers the cosmopolite advantages of London and the charming and rural British way-of-life.
Ealing is well-connected through the underground (zone 3) from Ealing Broadway and Ealing Common tube stations. The area also beneficiates from the railway, serving Hanwell, West Ealing and Ealing Broadway train stations towards Paddington train station (11 minutes). Moreover, TFL plans to open a new Crossrail 1 in 2019, which will allow Canary Warf to be reached in 25 minutes from Ealing.
The area offers high-quality and harmonious buildings, which is quite rare when we get further from London city centre. All architectures are represented: from the Georgian-style house to very modern buildings, with a majority of beautiful Victorian-style houses with gardens.
Shops and entertainment are located around Ealing Broadway. Don’t miss the excellent French bakery, Yvon’s Artisan Pâtissier, which offers amazing French pastries.
The area provides a large choice of schools: English-speaking private and state schools, as well as reputable international schools.
Regarding real estate, the area offers better prices compared to London city centre: between £2.000 and £4.000/month for a 3-bedroom house to rent according to the size of the property and its proximity with Ealing Broadway; between £600.000 and £1.200.000 for a 3-bedroom house to buy, according to the size, the condition of the property and the proximity with transports. Thanks to the Crossrail project, this investment can be very strategic for the next years
