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.

Chiswick property

Chiswick’s properties and residents are a varied bunch. Families queue up for the spacious Georgian and Edwardian houses, sought-after schools and plentiful parkland, such as lovely Turnham Green, which leads off the main road. Young professionals love it here, too, thanks to its proximity to Central London and luxe riverfront apartments.

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.

Also close by is Berkeley’s Chiswick Gate – a beautifully-done collection of apartments and townhouses, inspired by the architecture of neighbouring Chiswick House and Gardens. Also, rated as one of the best places to live in Chiswick.

In the middle of the development is one of its most redeeming features: landscaped private gardens designed by Macfarlane + Associates. These formal orchard gardens provide a pleasing focal point along with that all-important outdoor space with a play area for kids to enjoy.” – HomeViews Property Pro on Chiswick Gate

A lovely place to live.

Like: the interior space of the apartments is very generous. The nature reserve is lovely to look out onto.
Travel links are excellent and close by. The buildings are a really great design outside. People generally know each other and are friendly and respectful.
Dislike: tube noise.

Please review your development:

The development is literally a five minute walk from Chiswick Park tube station, is set back from the road and is a very nice design. It overlooks a nature reserve and has a secluded feel.
There is now a very stylish bridge leading from the development over the railway into the nearby Business Park., further enhancing transport links as this leads to Gunnersbury Station.
The tube lines going past are a bit noisy, but one gets used to this quite quickly.
Overall, it’s a great place to live with a nice community spirit.

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

The apartments are very well insulated and cosy, there is no gas in the development and unlimited 24 hour hot water and heating is included in the service charge.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Yes, some things have taken longer than others, but they are all dressed eventually. This is part of living in a manger block!

We like the area, its close to sainsburies. There are a lot of parks, and the district line is close. Its very green which is great

Please review your development:

I’ve been here for 2 weeks. The concierge are open 7 days a week 7 to 7, they are informative and have been helping us so much. The flat is very good, we have a view to the gardens and the ceilings are high. The management are okay, i haven’t had much interaction but they manage the property well. The lifts are clean.
