Finding Property in Ealing

Ealing was once considered a less enticing location than its more glamourous West London neighbours. Today, Ealing is firmly on the map.

The once overlooked locality has shrugged off its suburban shawl to reveal an elegant, vibrant and truly exciting place to live. So, let’s find out why…

Relocate to Ealing

Ealing is currently experiencing a vast amount of regeneration. Filmworks, the Art Deco building that now houses the eight screen picturehouse cinema and cultural quarter has been restored to its former glory. It offers beautifully designed apartments. The best of which are on the upper floors overlooking Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park.

Ealing’s already excellent transport links are just about to be further enhanced with the arrival of Crossrail. Then the journey time from Ealing Broadway to Canary Wharf will be reduced to just 26 minutes. In fact, Ealing Broadway to Bond Street will be just 12 minutes.

Again, with soon-to-be unparalled transport links, a suburb choice of period properties and highly regarded schools, it’s easy to understand why Ealing is attracting families from far and wide.

Uniquely, Ealing has a range of excellent state and independent schools, all of which are highly sought after and many of which are over subscribed. Here are a few of the best:

Open Spaces

In a word, it is one of the greenest boroughs in London. Ealing is a huge draw to buyers relocating from more urban parts of the capital. Particularly so when open spaces are even more important than ever before.

Walpole Park is located in the heart of Ealing’s Heritage Quarter, behind Pitzhanger Manor House. It has been restored to its former Regency glory of its creator, Sir John Soane, through a Heritage Lottery Funded Project. And it boasts a children’s playground and a newly restored fountain and Rustic Bridge on the Serpentine Lake. Additionally, Soane’s Kitchen is one of Ealing’s culinary delights, lying within Pitzganger Manor’s original walled garden. This summer, Walpole Park will, once again, host the hugely popular Ealing Jazz, Blues, Comedy and Beer Festivals.

Dog walking in the country

To the east of Ealing Broadway lies Ealing Common, a leafy green expanse. Which provides a popular and peaceful spot for picnics and walks. Surrounded by some of Ealing’s most impressive properties, it is particularly beautiful in the spring when the many horse chestnut trees are in bloom. And to the north, Pitshanger Park is hugely impressive and is popular with families, dog walkers and tennis players.

Out and About
