We are seeing an increase in people looking to settle in Ealing. The number of applicants we are registering across our five branches is up year on year by 265%. However, their search criteria does not just include the price and the number of bedrooms of their new home, it also includes enquiries about what else this area has to offer. Something our staff are able to answer easily, as 85% live within a mile or so of our branches.
And no wonder, the Queen of the Suburbs is becoming more popular as a place to live, work and enjoy – Ealing is winning awards in all the areas that influence our lives; –
||We have award winning food
Santa Maria pizzeria on South Ealing Road is frequently being mentioned in TimeOut as one of the best in London and was named in the top ten places to pizza in London by The Evening Standard in 2015.
The West Ealing Farmers market is home to some award winning cheese producers. The Farmers market in West Ealing is now in its 15th year, selling delicious local and regional produce every Saturday from 9am – 1pm.
|We have an award winning High Street
One of Ealing’s small high streets, Pitshanger Lane, recently won a big award – The Great British High Street Award for 2015 in the category for London.
If you looking to settle near this bustling, friendly high street, look no further than our Pitshanger Lane house. This property is in the popular Brentham Garden Suburb created in 1901.
||We have award winning local activities & events
Ealing has much to offer in sports, festivals, community and other events. Registrations for the Ealing Half Marathon have opened, the award winning sports event, voted UK’s best Half Marathon three years running, has been nominated for yet another Award – The BT’s Sports Industry Awards 2016 in the category “Community Programme of the Year”.

You might ask yourself why this renaissance has taken place and why now – Much as in the early days of the new railway lines by the Great Western Railway opening up new living space in the suburbs in the 1850s, Ealing’s fortunes are once again being influenced by a transport revolution – Crossrail. The effect of the £15.7 billion Crossrail project can already be seen despite the fact that full service will not run until 2019.
The area already has second to none transport links. There are three tube lines in the borough, Central, District and the Piccadilly Line, alongside this you’ll find the train stations Ealing Broadway, West Ealing, Hanwell, Drayton Green, Castle Bar Park, South Greenford serving Heathrow, Paddington and Central London, not forgetting easy access to the Brentford train services all the way to Waterloo. For drivers, the A/M40, A4 and the North Circular can connect you with the rest of London and the country.
It follows that the area has seen a further uplift in property prices in as much as up to 60% in some areas and neighbourhoods, largely due to future developments and will see continued investment by government, the council and most of all, by all who live and work in this beautiful park-rich borough.
