Launching within one of London’s most desirable postcodes, The Gateway by L&Q will bring a selection of 79 one, two and three bedroom homes to Chiswick this February, offering 68 Private Sale and 11 Shared Ownership homes.
Located on the Western stretch of Chiswick High Road, which offers a village feel and a plethora of independent shops, restaurants and cafes, The Gateway is just a short walk from the Thames. Perhaps London’s most picturesque waterside stretch, the Strand on the Green sees local residents often found sailing and paddle boarding throughout the summer months.
Cathy Lloyd, Sales and Customer Services Director for L&Q’s North Region, comments, “This is L&Q’s first major development for West London. With several other schemes in the pipeline in ‘W’ postcodes, The Gateway marks a move into some really prime locations in this area of the capital for the organisation.
“With the average value of apartments in the area growing by 26% over the past five years*, it’s clear demand is strong here, which in turn, is making homes increasingly out of reach for many buyers. We will be launching Help-to-Buy and Shared Ownership homes at The Gateway to assist first time buyers, and, perhaps more importantly, working with the community here and on other schemes in the area, to create thriving, mixed tenure neighbourhoods that local people can be proud of.”
Each with a private balcony, the new homes centre around a podium landscaped communal garden, promoting community living, with full-length windows allowing plenty of natural light into the apartments.
Inside, the apartments feature bright open-plan living areas with integrated top-of-the-range appliances, while pristine bathrooms have smart white sanitaryware by Roca and porcelain floor and wall tiles. Underfoot, floor finishes include quality engineered flooring in Oak Amtico to living areas and entrance halls, with luxurious carpets in soothing neutral tones in the bedrooms.
The Gateway is ideally located for Kew Bridge Station, with regular direct trains running into Waterloo taking less than 30 mins, while Gunnersbury Station is just a nine minute walk from the development, connected to both the London Overground and District Line. Stamford Brook Station, on the 24-hour Piccadilly Line, is also a 10-minute bus ride away, granting locals quick, direct access into King’s Cross and Piccadilly Circus.
A select number of underground parking spaces will be available at The Gateway, with Chiswick roundabout providing easy access to the M4, with Heathrow Airport accessible in just under 20 minutes and Central London in less than 40 minutes.
Besides enviable accessibility, the area benefits from several outstanding green spaces, with Chiswick Common and Turnham Green both under 25 minutes’ walk away from the Gateway. For those after a closer connection with nature, the untamed woodland of Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve is also within easy reach.
Chiswick High Road itself is a thoroughly modern enclave. The local Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Tesco are all walkable distances from The Gateway, and residents will also benefit from an array of highly-rated restaurants including sophisticated European bistro Restaurant Michael Nadra and La Trompette, one of the best French restaurants in West London. Independent clothing boutiques sit amongst high street chain favourites, with antique stores and popular cafes scattered throughout.
The Marketing Suite is due to open in February 2019. The first launch of homes will include four one bedroom apartments, with prices from £460,000, and four two bedroom apartments, with prices starting from £575,000. Help to buy will be available on all homes under £600,000.
