It’s an exciting time for the area, as new build homes in Brentford are being developed with greater confidence to serve a growing market.

Where is Brentford?

You’ll find Brentford in the borough of Hounslow, West London. It gets its name from being the confluence of the River Brent and the River Thames.

Why live in Brentford?

Brentford is yet another of London’s areas to enjoy a startling makeover in recent decades. It has attracted new investment, new professional commuter residents and a new level of confidence. The combination of accessibility, space and exciting new developments make this West London suburban eye-opener for anyone looking to rent or buy within easy travelling distance of Central London.

For local amenities, Brentford is very well off for green spaces. Chief among them is the gorgeous Syon Park. It’s over one hundred acres of immaculately cultivated parkland, dominated by the 600-year-old Syon House. Also, Brentford is literally just across the river from Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, via the Kew Bridge. This is one of London’s most spectacular attractions, a must-see for any nature lover.

Along with good schools, an improving crime rate (4.4% lower than the London average for the borough), and rapid development, Brentford is on the up and up. This makes it attractive for commuters, young families and anyone looking to enjoy a London lifestyle with a bit of flexibility.
