Top 10 new build homes developments in West London

Leafy, lovely and never lonely, living in West London is a ‘have your cake and eat it’ experience. You have great access to the delights of the big city lifestyle, but it’s easy to step outside the mad rush and enjoy things at your own pace. But where are the most exciting hotspots in this part of the capital? Let’s find out, as we list the 10 highest rated new build homes developments in West London according to verified residents on HomeViews.

Where is West London?

West London is the general term for the western sweep of the capital. This starts from Paddington and Chelsea near the centre, extending all the way out to Hayes and Uxbridge, near the M25. On the way, it includes the likes of Notting Hill, Hammersmith, Ealing, Brentford and Hounslow.

Why live in West London?

You can find plenty of variety in West London, in practically every metric of city living. Towards the centre, you’ll find the hyper-affluent areas of Chelsea and Kensington, which offer up many of the smartest and chic properties, shops and dining experiences in the capital. If you want things a little quirkier, look towards Notting Hill, where boutique stores and tucked-away restaurants are the order of the day.

Further west, Chiswick and Ealing offer outstanding retail opportunities, with their exceptional high streets. As for green spaces and great days out, there’s the always delightful Kew Botanical Gardens to enjoy. Not to mention the many outstanding parks – Gunnersbury Park, Holland Park, Osterley Park and House, and the unmissable Hyde Park are all located in West London.

As well as the great access to green spaces, fitness is a major theme throughout West London. Over 100 health and fitness clubs operate across this part of London, alongside innumerable fitness groups organised over social media.

If you want more space and possibly more solitude, head out further west. Hayes and Uxbridge provide competitive rental rates and property prices, but still offer great access to central London.

Transport in West London

West London is very well supported in terms of great transport links. Major A-roads such as the A40, A312 and A406 connect the different West London boroughs. Plus, the M4/A4 runs all the way from the M25 Orbital motorway to central London.

This section of London also has excellent Underground connections, with 7 out of 11 major lines servicing the area. The Hammersmith & City Line is particularly useful in getting to and from the city centre. The District Line is also great for servicing popular commuter areas of West London.

West London property prices

West London is not cheap. This is where you’ll find some of the most desirable property in the capital, along with big price tags.

At the time of writing (February 2022), Zoopla put the West London house price average at just over £1.16 million. Admittedly, the more central parts of West London are dragging this average up, but it still paints a picture. Don’t expect much by way of cheap property deals.

Flats in West London averaged at almost £750,000 for this period too. While detached homes can easily run into several millions of pounds.
