I love the fact that it is safe, quiet and friendly
I love the fact that it is safe, quiet and friendly. There is a sense of local community but I believe it would be beneficial to have better shops and give Askew Road a better look. People tend to go to Chiswick to get stuff they can't get here, so shops like Boots and Holland and Barret, or even a weekend market could lift the spirit a bit!
The closest tube station is 1,2 km (Stamford Brook - District Line) which takes you about 15 minutes to get there. One can find some buses on Goldhawk Road, The Vale and Askew Road which they take you to Shepherd's Bush Station, Hammersmith, Westfields, Notting Hill and even Central London. Traffic is not bad, not even during rush hour I'd say and would be nice to have more bike lanes really.
I guess most houses are occupied by young families, couples. and elderly people. Haven't seen many students and perhaps that's why it's so quite which is definitely a plus to me and hope it never changes! There's no traffic noise at all and most of the "noise" comes from people on their way to Wendell Park. I'm happy with the people living on this street even though I've only met a few... but would be nice to meet others someday.
There is a reasonable variety of shops around this area considering it's mostly residential. Askew Road is sort of the main street and despite not being very long, you can find independent shops like cafes, bakeries, supermarkets, gift shops, butchers, and a bunch of restaurants offering mediterranean, Lebanese, Thai, Taiwanese, Chinese, and of course, Pizza. Wendell Park is the closest park, small but lovely and usually packed with children enjoying themselves after school hours and weekends. Loads of dogs too! On the whole. I'd say this neighbourhood is very safe, peaceful, friendly and cheaper than W12!! However, sometimes I wish there were new shops, bringing a more moderen and up to date feel.
It’s a beautiful area with gorgeous houses so lovely to walk around.
It’s residential enough that you don’t feel like you’re in zone 2 but close enough to transport to get you into central London within 15 minutes. It’s the perfect combination especially if you’re commuting into the city for your job every weekday. Westfield is the star attraction but just a bus ride away is beautiful Chiswick High Road with trendy shops, bars and restaurants. Can’t go wrong!
Being zone 2 in London you have buses going in every direction aswell as tube stations. Close by you have Stamford Brook (distinct line), Goldhawk Road (Hammersmith and City and Circle line) aswell as Shepherds Bush and White City (Central Line). It is particularly busy around rush hour (especially at Shepherd’s Bush) between 8-9 in the morning.
It’s a beautiful area with gorgeous houses so lovely to walk around. I get the impression that there is a mix of owners and renters in the area. You have the odd crime happen (where doesn’t that happen in London?!) but I don’t feel unsafe walking around the area. I never have a problem with bin collection. You have bins for your black rubbish and then Hammersmith and Fulham council provide you with recycling bags for your recycling. It’s an unspoken rule that you don’t put your recycling out until the night before collection. It keeps the area looking tidy.
There are some great local coffee shops - Lavelli Bakery being one on Askew Road. Great coffee and baked goods. A bus ride away you have Westfield which has an abundance of shops, restaurants and bars. Westfield is extremely popular as it has everything under one roof including a gym, cinema, Waitrose as well as high end and high street stores. Not far away you also have Chiswick High Road which again has great restaurants and bars but particularly independent special shops that Westfield doesn’t!
The crime on our street and surrounding area is not great.
The crime on our street and surrounding area is not great. I am not alone when I say this as many of my neighbours and friends have had items stolen from their car, gardens and homes.
It is almost "no man's land" as there is not a tube station close by. West Acton and Stamford Brook are a good 10-15 minute walk. So most of my journeys involve at least one bus tip and an underground ride too. There are many buses in all directions and some routes are fast ones which have limited stops. You can get to Shepherds Bush, Hammersmith or Chiswick within 15 minutes by bus. Cycling in the area is not ideal as the road surfaces are poor quality and it is dangerous. Bikes get stolen a lot from outside people's homes in this area which is off putting. We have also had 3 Vespas stolen from outside our home!
Parking is easy for residents due to a 9am to 9pm resident only restriction on our road. It is frustrating for visitors and family though as there is a huge lack of pay and display machines and spaces. This is a real downside. Bin collection is once a week and the bin men ALWAYS leave the streets looking filthy! There is often a trail of rubbish along pavements and streets after collection. Which is awful in the hot months. Our street has a mixture of ages living on it. A lot of the houses on our side are inhabited by families with young children and the odd older person. On the opposite side of our street are maisonettes in which young people or students live. The result of which is noise, parties and antisocial behaviour!
The main shopping road is Askew Road. Big chains can be found there: Tescos, 2 co-ops, Costa Coffee. Along with smaller chains like Ginger Pig which sells good quality meat. Askew Road has more coffee shops (too many!) and lots of estate agents (too many!) and a few hairdressers too. A great wine shop and two quite pricy gift shops also exist. The area has several open spaces. The larger Ravenscourt Park which has a large pond, tennis courts, basketball courts, children's paddling pool, garden centre, bowls green, cafe and a big grass field. Closely are Wendell Park and Southfield Park which are smaller and have children's playgrounds. Southfield also has tennis courts. The area is missing a good bookshop and up market eatery.
Quiet and nice to live.
