West London estate agents on Crossrail countdown - four years to go

Crossrail is one of the most eagerly anticipated public transport developments, agree west London estate agents. Enabling works started back in 2008 and ever since the first ground was broken, buyers of west London property have been snapping up homes along the proposed route in expectancy of the quicker commute times into central London. As we approach the end of 2014, the completion date for Crossrail feels more tangible, with services along the central stretch of the high-speed line due to start in late 2018. West London estate agents, including Winkworth, have noticed a rise in property buyers moving to the areas of Acton, Ealing, Hanwell, Southall and Harlington knowing that within four years their journey times to the centre of the capital will be drastically cut. In fact, travellers will shave almost half an hour off journey times in many cases, with commutes to Tottenham Court Road shortened by 28 minutes from Acton mainline; 13 minutes from Ealing Broadway; 18 minutes from West Ealing; 27 minutes from Hanwell and 28 minutes from Southall. Property for sale in west London, as well as homes that are available to rent, are already popular with home movers due to their close proximity to Heathrow and the M4 corridor, where many international blue chip companies have chosen to base their UK operations. Crossrail will serve to enrich west London's desirability, with a super-fast direct line that stops at Paddington, Bond Street, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Canary Wharf, then onwards to Essex or south east London. Winkworth has been charting the rise of the west London suburbs that will benefit from the introduction. Established areas such as Ealing and Acton - where Winkworth has offices - are moving more into the 'central London' catchment as the city centre expands and encompasses more westerly-lying neighbourhoods. Less discovered areas, such as Hanwell, Southall, Hayes and Harlington, are rapidly transforming into flourishing communities with Crossrail acting as the catalyst towards a cosmopolitan and well-connected way of life. For buyers of property for sale in west London, the next 12 months represent the perfect purchasing opportunity, with stable house prices and excellent mortgage affordability. If you are looking for a property to buy or rent in west London close to the proposed Crossrail stations, contact Winkworth today.
