What to know about Askew Road
Formerly known as Gaggle Goose Green, Askew Road is nestled in the heart of W12, linking two routes into London from the west - Uxbridge Road and Goldhawk Road. Marsh & Parsons has both property for sale and to rent in Askew Road; extending to Shepherds Bush, Ravenscourt Park and Bedford Park. Mark Hustwit, Senior Sales Manager, says "The Askew Road area continues to grow in popularity. People are attracted not only to the beautiful architecture, excellent transport links and great local schools, but also the multi-cultural make up of the area".
"It has changed dramatically in the past decade and where there were once shabby shopping parades, there are now smart boutiques, pavement cafés and bistros," says Mark. "Nearby, White City has been transformed into one of the classiest shopping centres in Europe, Westfield, with high-class retailers including De Beers, Louis Vuitton and Mulberry taking space there." Shepherds Bush Market W12 has been selling everything from fish to fabrics since 1914 and for those looking to experience some traditional fare, Cooke's Pie & Mash shop on Goldhawk Road is world famous and definitely worth a visit!
As one of the premier estate agents selling properties in the W12, W3 and W4 area, Marsh & Parsons prides itself on its local know-how. From the best schools in the area to the finest boutiques, bars and restaurants and the cost of a resident's parking permit, agents at Marsh & Parsons have their finger firmly on the local pulse.
