Treat your tastebuds on Chiswick High Road

Most of the action centres on Chiswick High Road, a conga-line of cafés, boutiques and eateries. In fact, Chiswick really earns its stripes when it comes to gastronomy. With Italian delicatessens, posh gastropubs and stylish coffee houses all getting in on the act. The village’s piece de resistance, though, is La Trompette, an elegant European bistro that’s bagged a Michelin star for inventive dishes such as honey-glazed duck and pumpkin and grapefruit sorbet.

Those who want to be near to the hustle and bustle should check out 500 Chiswick High Road, a sleek development from Redrow Homes. These apartments, penthouses and townhouses put you right in the heart of W4. A great choice if you are looking to buy or rent in Chiswick.

In the middle of the development is one of its most redeeming features: landscaped private gardens designed by Macfarlane + Associates.

Okay, not perfect

Review Date Apr 2022

Chiswick is a delightful west London suburb with plenty of boutique shops, cafes, and amenities. We are very well connected with the overground, district, and Piccadilly lines

Please review your development:

Overall the development is great however we do have significant issues with the lifts, as well as the main building doors not closing properly which has lead to a number of parcel thefts. The build quality isn’t great and a number of snagging issues arose however I’m very happy to have my first home.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I had known that pocket were going push back so hard on every issue raised during warranty. A lot of similar issues were seen by all residents and the after care was not great at all.

What is the best feature of your home:

The two shared roof terraces are lovely, hell with the communal feel, and provided a much needed outdoor area during lockdown.

Multiple supermarkets within walking distance, multitude of transport links with an array of local amenities and luxuries nearby.

Please review your development:

The location is incredible. Chiswick High Road is within arms reach whilst both District & Piccadilly lines are both just minutes away from the front door. The communal areas offer spectacular view and there is a great sense of community. The flats themselves are modern and bright with stunning floor to ceiling windows.

There have been relatively few issues since moving in over two years ago. Main complaints would be lack of safe parcel storage solution and overheating during the summer.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Temperatures during summer months given the tall windows and strong insulation.

What is the best feature of your home:

The clean and modern design, tall windows and great views.

Great range of pubs, restaurants and cafes on chiswick high road which is a 10 minute walk. Chiswick has an abundance of parks and green spaces. I walk through 4 on my lunchtime walk when working from home! Property is within walking distance of both the Richmond and Ealing Broadway district lines, the piccadilly line and the overground, plus buses.

Please review your development:

Never had any notable issues with the development. Property is well maintained and has 2 rooftop terraces with great views. Other residents are friendly and there is a good community vibe. On rare occasions, the hot water has stopped working but this has been fixed promptly after being reported. There is also a lounge area with free WiFi and a smart TV

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

It can get hot in the summer although not unliveable, but equally no heating required in the winter!

What is the best feature of your home:

Proximity to Chiswick High Road which is one of the best high streets in London

The flat is well laid out and very sound proof

Chiswick is a fabulous place to live and the development is close to transport, shops, restaurants and the lovely green space immediately behind in the business park. Unfortunately being so close to the railway lines can be a bit noisy, although thankfully the overground stops overnight.

Please review your development:

The flat is well laid out and very sound proof. I have no issues at all with feeling overlooked or overheard or hearing others and I appreciate the bike storage and shared spaces. There is a good community within the block with a WhatsApp group to ask for help, advice or to share information.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wanted a south facing apartment but it gets quite hot on the south/west side (or so I’m told). Very good to have accidentally ended up on the north-east.

What is the best feature of your home:

Wel laid out, well, well insulated (very cheap to heat) and well sound proofed.
