  • Shepherd's Bush is a great place to live. With the Westfields opening a while back the area has deinitely picked up. I have heard a lot of aussies and kiwis live around here but I think its where you hang out really.. there's a big Walkabout off the common that gets a bit rowdy on a Sunday but it means there's random costumed folk wandering the streets that you can have a laugh at.

  • There is a wide range of properties in Shepherd's Bush, the majority of which are period houses and conversions. The area is popular with first-time buyers attracted by the plentiful Victorian terraces and conversions and the short commute into central London. Larger family homes are situated in the Wendell Park, Brackenbury and Hammersmith areas. More affordable property can also be found within the Shepherd's Bush and White City areas, where there are ex-local authority houses and flats.

  • Hi, We would suggest that you get in touch with local estate agents in order to get some background about the area. You can search for agents using the ‘find agents’ tab on the top of the Zoopla Page. We hope this helps.
