As a young family this lives up to everything we would have expected.Both my husband & I wanted to get out of central London because of our new baby, but this affords him the ability to commute into town without having to be gone for all hours.
The zip car allowance is fantastic as he often uses our car for work, so means I can get around to see friends & my parents easily with the little one.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
Â That the fridge freezer was quite small & we should have kept our old one as a spare.
We viewed a 3 bedroom townhouse that has a lovely terrace overlooking Ravenscourt Park. The open plan kitchen & dining area is just such a great family space. The concierge service is such a luxury and the transport connections are fantastic – a very short walk to ravenscourt park tube on the district line with good access into central/city as well as good bus routes to hammersmith etc. The go green travel incentives also are appealing to us as family with zip car membership and money towards a bike – though I doube we would ever take this up!
The proximity to such great schools including the Godolphin and Latymer, St Paul’s provides us with a fantastic, if pricey decision to make in a few years.

Kings Row development get top reviews from me! Superb access to Ravenscourt park and the amenities of Kings Road. Perfect for a family with good access to the central london and the city and also the huge park with play area etc. Located at the quieter end of Kings Road with lovely coffee shops and restaurants right on the door step. Kings Row from Linden Homes mixes character with modern features perfectly- the brick walls really topping it for me. And to be able to get a new two bed / two floor property with balcony and courtyard for under 750k the price is also very reasonable. The apartments have a homely feel with the two floors, outside space and open plan kitchen dining living area. The property is slightly set back from the main road making it safe for children. It doesn’t surprise me a lot of these have sold already. Compared to other properties for this price in the area this is a fantastic buy.
