Ealing, or ‘The Queen of the Suburbs’ as it’s fondly known, is a happy balance between city and countryside living. Train and tube stations offer fantastic connections to the heart of the capital, as well as this it has retained a rural, characterful look and feel. The borough has numerous parks (Gunnersbury, Brent Lodge Park and Walpole are three of the best), a 40-something acre common, and quiet, leafy avenues. Read on to discover the developments that are rated as the best places to live in Ealing and to see reviews from residents who own or rent in Ealing.
Beautiful walks along the Grand Union Canal, neighboring Greenland and the wonderful Horsenden Hill is absolute bliss.
There is a Co-Op nearby which is about to open (end of month I’ve been told for 3 months now)
Lots of options for shops and public transport all within walking distance.
There is a pub located on the canal side – The Black Horse which serves great food and such a lovely scenic place to go to have a drink.
If you do not want to walk, there is a bus 395 which stops outside the nearby Retail Park which is very handy.
Please review your development:
My apartment is very quiet which makes it easy to work from home during covid, and there is a sense of tranquility throughout the building. Staff are great and very responsive if there is an issue. There is adequate living space for 2 people in my 1 bed. Everything works and all appliances very easy to operate. Some great zoom events were arranged over the festive season to make up for lockdown and was a nice way to meet and interact with fellow residents. I feel very safe living on my own here. Alas, my 6 month stay is almost over, I wish I’d signed up for 12!
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
For non drivers – Tesco deliver to your apartment!
Wine bottles can be left on the floor outside the recycle bin to be picked up with large recycle boxes.
What is the best feature of your home:
Large windows and a Juliet Balcony which opens to beautiful sunrises, sunset skies over the canal, fields & woodlands of Horsenden Hill. Sounds of the fountain outside the building and sitting outside to watch its many colours. Roof top lounge on a warm day – there is always a cool breeze, feels like being on holiday.
