With property prices in Ealing up 10% on last year* as people flock to the area ahead of the opening of the new Elizabeth line in 2019, savvy buyers are realising that they can get more for their money, yet retain excellent links to central London, by moving to Uxbridge.
The majority of sales in Ealing last year were flats, selling for an average price of £541,198*. On 30th September, Annington will release the first phase of its highly anticipated Southside Close development featuring a stylish and contemporary collection of three and four bedroom new build homes on Honeycroft Hill in Uxbridge for only a fraction more than the cost of an Ealing flat.
With prices starting at £595,000, and only four of the eight properties being released for sale later this month, Southside Close is already generating large amounts of interest from professionals who want to get on the property ladder or upgrade from their starter homes to a more spacious, family home.
These first properties are being sold off-plan, meaning that buyers can secure this great price now - in an area where prices have risen 10% in the last year* - and move in to their brand new home in early 2018. What’s more, no deposit is required to place a reservation.
Annington is one of the largest private owners of residential property in the UK and has a long-term leaseholder agreement with the Ministry of Defence. The developers are increasingly moving into the new-build market with a particular focus on smaller developments, providing high-quality, affordable homes for a range of buyers.
Sally Parsons, Property Director at Annington, said: “We are using our 20 years of experience renovating MoD homes to expand into the new build sector. Keeping things small allows us to prioritise building houses to an exceptionally high standard in areas that, we believe, are a perfect fit for young families. Southside Close is great example of what we can do and we’re very proud of it.”
Southside Close combines a leafy, suburban lifestyle with a sought after location on Honeycroft Hill. All the homes in the gated, private development will be finished to a high specification and come with landscaped gardens and off-road parking.
The development is just a short walk to Uxbridge station for the Metropolitan line and commuters can reach Baker Street in 39 minutes or Liverpool Street in 53 minutes. Southside Close boasts easy access to the A40 for day-tips to the Chiltern Hills or Oxford and Heathrow Airport is also just a short drive away.
Closer to home, Uxbridge has a vibrant town centre with a strong community feel. It features two shopping centres, countless restaurants and several large supermarkets. The Colne Valley Regional Park is on the doorstep providing a taste of the countryside and a haven for wildlife with 200 miles of rivers and canals and over 60 lakes. The area is steeped in history having been home to a RAF base until 2010, which played a key part in the Battle of Britain.
The town also benefits from several good schools, including the nearby Highfield Primary School and the John Locke Academy, which have recently been rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
Clive Edwards, Sales Director at Cameron’s Estate Agents, the selling agents for the development, said: “With West London’s property prices ever-spiralling, those who have discovered Uxbridge already know that they are on to a good thing. It’s rare to find such a combination of excellent transport links with outstanding local facilities yet still remaining affordable for first time buyers.
Clive continues: “Southside Close slots perfectly into the Uxbridge market with its contemporary and spacious homes. I think a lot of factors have come together at the right time to make this one of the most sought after developments in outer-London at the moment.”
The first release of properties at Southside Close will be available to reserve from the 30th September by visiting Cameron’s Estate Agents between 10am – 2pm. Call 01895 230 777 or see www.southsideclose.co.uk for more information.
