Property Investment Guide - Ealing, London
With the centre of London proving, as always resistant to any form of civic restructuring, it was no surprise that, when the Victorians got a chance to apply their town planning skills to a smaller project, that they should do so with all the energy and enterprise for which they have become famous. The beneficiary for all this nineteenth century zeal was the market town of Ealing which went on to be nicknamed "Queen of the Suburbs" and is still an attractive residential district to this day, owing to the wide tree-lined boulevards, lush green spaces and picturesque squares that were all part of a genuine desire to improve the quality of life of the citizenry in and around London.
A location 8 miles due west of central London means that high rise buildings are scarce in Ealing and that invariably means that the grand mansion style Victorian houses that overlook Ealing Common enjoy plenty of natural light. The surrounding avenues and their spacious pavements are tailor-made for outdoor bistro eating in the summer months with Pitzhanger Manor forming an elegant backdrop for all manner of outdoor activities.
All this space, light and greenery will be an instant draw to young professional families as well as well-heeled students, yet because of the handy transportation links nearby, Ealing is also a viable option for corporate clients whose work requires them have both the city centre and Heathrow airport in equal proximity. Ealing Broadway station interconnects both overground and Tube networks and reduces the journey into the West End to a convenient 20 minutes. The M4 motorway is a 5 minute drive away and is a fast and efficient means of accessing the outstanding beauty of the Cotswolds and beyond.
Investors, in particular may decide to place amenities before history in order to attract that all-important corporate relocation pound and with this in mind, luxury apartments available in the brand new Dickens Yard development seems like a good option. Here, up-to-date appliances and excellent security are combined with stylish interiors that are sure to attract long term capital gain and income.
In order to get the best rental return possible and because it is a stated preference of most relocation companies, it would be wise for prospective landlords to hire an experienced property management company and to budget accordingly.
