The highest-rated new build development in Chiswick is Chiswick Point by Bellway Homes, a mixed-use development scheme consisting of 125 one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments. The development is next to the Gunnersbury Triangle Local Nature Reserve and only a three-minute walk away from Chiswick Park station, which has connections to the District line.

Check out this rave review: ‘The development 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. Overall, it’s a great place to live with a nice community spirit.’

Living in Chiswick

Once a fishing village, now a leafy community that’s safe and well-equipped for families, Chiswick balances city living with a more mellow pace. Though it has changed over the years, the district is still somewhat defined by the Thames bend in which it sits. Competitive and recreational rowing remains a part of Chiswick’s identity, as do its romantic riverside period homes. Desirable Georgian, Edwardian, and Victorian examples line Chiswick Mall – the setting for Miss Pinkerton’s Academy for Young Ladies in Vanity Fair – and in the row of 18th Century homes and pubs thronging Stand-on-the-Green.

You’re spoilt for choice if you enjoy a drink or a social evening with your friends in a historic building. Chiswick has several notable pubs, some listed, including the Mawson Arms, the George and Devonshire, the Old Packhorse and The Tabard on Bath Road near Turnham Green station. London’s oldest and largest brewery is also based here.

While the area is more urbanised to the north, it’s just a short trip south to find open spaces like those at Chiswick House and Duke’s Meadows. For a day out, why not hop over the river to visit Kew Gardens and the London Wetlands Centre? Returning to the hustle and bustle in the north, Chiswick High Road is jam-packed with independent cafés, restaurants and bars. Some local favourites include Franco Manca for Neapolitan wood-fired sourdough pizzas and the Michelin-starred La Trompette. You’ll also find more shops on Turnham Green Terrace and Devonshire Road, regular markets, and a range of sporting and leisure facilities throughout the area.
