Welcome to Chiswick

Located in west London, Chiswick is a riverside village turned desirable suburb, known for its green spaces and strong community feel. Deriving its name from the Old English for cheese farm, Chiswick is hugely popular with families and professionals for its leafy charm, excellent schools and superb mix of shops, restaurants and boutiques. It’s a commuter’s paradise, with excellent road connections, several Tube stations and a close proximity to Heathrow.

The former home of three notable characters, Lord Burlington, William Hogarth and John Bird Fuller, Chiswick is an area littered with history, boasting 12 English Heritage blue plaques. Chiswick House, designed by Lord Burlington, was once a magnet for fashionable 18th-century society, and today showcases many spectacular works of art. The birthplace of the English Landscape Movement, the gardens of the house are a must-see. Other notable historical sites include the Fullers Griffin Brewery, where John Bird Fuller and John Smith first opened their, now incredibly successful, business which has been producing beer in the area for over 170 years. In addition, Bedford Park, considered to be London’s first garden suburb, was built between 1875 and 1886 by Victorian property developer Jonathan Carr and architect Richard Norman Shaw, as part of the Arts of Crafts revival.

Chiswick has attracted a number of celebrity residents, the most well-known being Ant and Dec, who, until recently, lived just 150 metres from each other. Other notable residents include actor Colin Firth, actress Phyllis Logan and radio hosts Jeremy Vine and Jamie Theakston. Throughout the years, Chiswick has also seen many more famous faces come and go, including Phil Collins, Kate Beckinsale, Hugh Grant, Cara Delevingne and Bruce Dickinson. Oh and Midge Ure wrote “Do they know it’s Christmas” at his home in Chiswick as well!


Property types in Chiswick

Chiswick offers a variety of property types throughout its well-defined areas: head to Strand-on-the-Green for small cottages and riverside pubs, while Chiswick Mall offers beautiful Georgian houses separated from their waterside gardens, which flood on high tide. For those looking for more modest housing, the modern blocks of flats and apartments along Chiswick High Road are ideal.

Edwardian and 1920s houses line the streets of Grove Park, many with off-street parking, and large, detached Arts and Crafts houses make up Bedford Park. Houses are sought-after in this area, with many designed by iconic architect Richard Norman Shaw retaining their picturesque red-brick frontages. Poet John Betjeman described Bedford Park as ‘the most significant suburb built in the last century, probably the most significant in the western world’, and it’s easy to see why!
