|Minimum Stay||3 - 4 nights|
We live in a quiet, safe and friendly neighbourhood of West-London (Chiswick). It is one of the most relaxed and family-friendly neighbourhoods of London where more and more Londoners decide to live as it is very green and has a feeling of countryside while still minutes away from the tourist centre of London.
The house is a 2' walk from Chiswick Park tube station (District line) and 10' walk from Turnham Green tube station (Piccadilly line). You can therefore easily access Central London (30' from Piccadilly Circus) as well as countryside destinations like Richmond Park (20' away) and Kew Gardens (10' away).
You have nice public parks around the corner, among which Acton Green Common and Ravenscourt Park with kids playgrounds and public tennis courts, as well as a paddling pool in the summer.
You have nice local coffee shops and restaurants as well as all the supermarket chains around the corner on Chiswick High Road or Turnham Green Terrace. You also have two of the finest restaurants in London but without the formality or the price tag you might expect (Le Vacherin and La Trompette).
You are a few bus stops from Westfield Shopping Centre, a very big indoor mall with cinemas, high street brands and luxury shops.
The house is on a road where you find easy parking. You have a fantastic view from the windows, overseeing the neighbours lovely gardens full of big trees.

We are Belgians. We moved to London in 2010. Two of our 4 kids were born here. Our kids attend local schools. I am working as university teacher and my husband as fund manager. We like London very much: its cultural and social life, its kids-friendly atmosphere. We also like w-e getaways in the countryside to visit castles and gardens.
Gaetane purchased this house in 2016
We moved to our neighbourhood after having lived 6 years in Hammersmith. We have many friends in Chiswick, people who, like us, are looking for better quality of life in London. We feel that Chiswick has a lot to offer: nice shops, nice restaurants, nice parks, trees everywhere and vicinity of main highways to get out of London easily. We cycle or walk everywhere (to restaurants, cinema, playgrounds, tennis courts, schools etc). We barely use our car.
We like our house very much as it is straightforward and charming at the same time (a typical so-called Dutch house) and full of light/bright. It is a very cosy and comfortable house, where you can have your own privacy as it is spread on many levels and the rooms are spacious.
The kitchen and its dining room is the place where we stand the most: full of light with lovely colours. We like our terrace and garden as well and the kids feel cosy in their rooms.
Quiet and safe neighbourhood just 30' away from Centre London by tube.
Recently refurbished to the highest standards with beautiful materials and fabrics.
A house where you are happy to come back at night.
Children friendly as we have 4 children ourselves from 3 to 9 years old.
Quiet, safe and family neighbourhood, close to the tourist centre and very conveniently located next to shops/restaurants and mainline buses/tubes and trains.
100m from the closest tube station (District Line) which takes you direct to the centre of London.
Big supermarket around the corner (Sainsbury) as well as loads of charming coffee shops, fine restaurants (including Le Vacherin (French bistro) and La Trompette (1 Michelin Star)), all the supermarkets chains (Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, Tesco Express), organic shops (As Nature always intended) and restaurant chains (Zizzi, Gourmet Burger, Bill's Burger, Pizza Express etc) on Chiswick High Street which is 200m away or on Turnham Green Terrace where you can catch the Piccadilly Line.
Westfield Shopping Centre with High Street brands and luxury shops (Hacket, Burbury etc) as well as a huge cinema a few stops away.
Famous concert halls (including Apollo Hammersmith), good theatre places (including The Bush and The Lyrics), nice parks with playgrounds, public tennis courts and paddling pool (Acton Green Common, Rocks Lane Multi Sports Centre and Ravenscourt Park) between 3' and 10' walk.
2' walk from Chiswick Park tube station (District Line) or 5' walk from Turnham Green tube station (Piccadilly Line) - therefore only 30' away from Piccadilly Circus and all main tourist attractions of Central London.
If you come by car, parking possible in front of our house. And you are minutes away from all the highways to drive to Hampton Court, to Kew Gardens, to Richmond Park, to Oxford and Cambridge and to all the National trust houses and gardens.
