  • Great. Great parks, good pubs, off the beaten track, quiet, fantastic schools, cheaper than Ealing. An area that is often overlooked but now very much on the rise.

  • 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.
