Useful Information

Chiswick is a suburban area situated seven miles to the West of the City of London and its place name probably means "the cheese farm" originating from the old English words "Cese" and "wic". The area is bounded by the River Thames to the South, Hammersmith to the East, Brentford to the West and the Borough of Acton and Ealing to the North. Chiswick is incredibly well placed offering excellent communications both into London and out of town, a greater part of its attraction is the diverse property type ranging from splendid Georgian houses on the River at Chiswick Mall through to modern day contemporary developments within the borough. Bedford Park, London's first garden suburb, is situated on the northern side of Chiswick and offers some magnificent Victorian semi-detached and detached family homes associated with the Aesthetic Movement of the 1870's. To the south of the area lies Grove Park where you can find the enjoyable open spaces of Chiswick House and Grounds and some particularly pleasant walks along the River Thames via towpaths adjacent to a number of historic public houses situated in Strand-on-the-Green. In essence Chiswick offers a property type to match everybody's tastes whilst being complimented by excellent local communications, retail and recreational facilities.
