BE WEST: Get on the property ladder with Shared Ownership in West London

First time buyer homes available in Hounslow and Hammersmith & Fulham

Fancy the desirable residence of West London’s best postcodes? Your dream could be a reality with these new Shared Ownership homes.

Chiswick and Fulham, in South West and West London, are two of the capital’s most sought after areas. Loved for their beautiful properties, great transport links, thriving high streets and proximity to the River Thames, they’re both pretty and practical places to live. Homes here are renowned for their big price tags, however, two fantastic new developments by BE WEST have made buying in these high-end locales a possibility for first time buyers.

AW4KEN, Chiswick

Chiswick, West London, is an enclave of calm and beauty with wide tree-lined streets, a leafy stretch of the River Thames, a strong café culture and excellent schools. Meanwhile, the busy High Road provides the shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, along with links to nearby Hammersmith and Acton.

The new development at 78 Barrowgate Road, AW4KEN provides affordable, quality homes in this desirable area. The boutique collection is home to just 12 one and two bedroom Shared Ownership apartments, housed in an attractive period-style property that fits perfectly with its surrounds on a quiet residential street. Inside, the apartments are stylishly appointed, with bright, spacious living areas that lead to private balconies. As well as a leafy outlook, residents have access to the shared gardens, while private parking is also available.

The location is fantastic: Turnham Green and the long High Road – for relaxed brunches, shopping and meeting friends – are a two minute walk. Beautiful Chiswick Gardens are around 15 minutes on foot, with the river a further five minutes away. Meanwhile, Gunnersbury or Chiswick Park stations are around a five minute stroll for Overground and District Line trains, where trains will take you to London Victoria in just over 20 minutes.

From £186,250 for a 25% share of the full market value of £745,000.

The Apex, Fulham

Fulham, SW6, clings to the south west curve of the Thames, and offers everything you’d expect from life in the city: a busy centre, a diverse range of shops and restaurants, urban green spaces and plenty of riverside retreats.

The Apex is located just moments from the high street, and is in an ideal spot for enjoying the best of the immediate area and the city beyond. Within the contemporary four-storey apartment block, there are 12 two bedroom homes available through Shared Ownership. Styling is sleek and modern with plenty of natural light and high-spec fixtures and fittings throughout.

The open-plan living areas have been designed to maximise the use of space, and complement the ergonomic kitchens. Residents will enjoy the generously sized balconies, giving that all-important private outdoor space. The separate utility room provides an extra space for storage and washing, while there are also ensuite bathrooms from the master bedroom in some of the properties. Residents benefit from shared cycle storage, encouraging them to explore what the local area has to offer.

Fulham’s thriving centre is popular for shopping, eating out, cinema, live music and sport, while local open spaces include Eel Brook Common, Hurlingham Park and wonderful Bishop’s Park – a lovely stretch of riverside greenery. When it comes to the river, there’s so much on offer: take your pick from pub lunches, long walks, boat trips and even rowing and kayaking.

Getting in and around the city is made easy with strong transport links. You’ll find Overground, District Line and mainline train services all within easy reach at West Brompton and Fulham Broadway stations. Buses can be found moments from the front door, whisking you to Notting Hill, Shepherd’s Bush, or south of the river to Clapham.
