Estate and Letting Agent in Shepherds Bush W12

For decades, Shepherds Bush was a scruffy enclave beloved of media types, thanks to the BBC Television Centre on Wood Lane. But then the Notting Hill set got wind of its comparatively affordable period terraces, family-friendly parks and excellent transport links; it's 20 minutes on the Central line into central London, and there's also the Hammersmith and City and Circle lines via Baker Street, an over ground station with links to Clapham Junction, plentiful bus routes, the A40 into and out of town, and the M4 not far away. Before long, prices were rising, developers were moving in, and the gentrification began.

Westfield shopping centre has brought jobs and visitors to the Bush, and is a huge draw with its restaurants and shops. Shepherds Bush Green has had a £2m facelift, and the famous market is being redeveloped, and will bring a pedestrianised piazza to the area between Goldhawk and Uxbridge Roads. The old Pavilion has been given a new lease of life as an upmarket hotel, complete with spa. Pavements are being widened, and both chains and independent shops and restaurants are opening up.

When it comes to leisure time, Shepherds Bush residents are spoilt for choice. The O2 Shepherds Bush Empire hosts big-name music gigs, and Bush Hall on Uxbridge Road showcases up-and-coming pop and folk acts in a beautiful old snooker hall, with a decent bistro-style restaurant attached. The Bush Theatre has an impressive reputation as a champion of playwrights, and attracts major name actors and directors. Loftus Road is the home of Queens Park Rangers football club. Local pubs and bars include the Princess Victoria, the Queen Adelaide, the Defector's Weld and the Sindercombe Social, all of which serve food. Holland Park, with its peacocks and Japanese garden, is a short walk away.

Properties includes flats, smaller terraces and larger town-houses. The area around White City Estate to the north is being smartened up, with a new development backing onto Wormholt Park offering attractive new apartments; the nearby Wallflower Estate is a hidden gem comprised of well-proportioned family homes with gardens. There are pretty streets off Goldhawk Road, especially to the south, near Ravenscourt Park.

Sought-after areas include the Shepherds Bush Road area around Brook Green, and Askew Road; both have a strong local character, buzzing independent shops and cafes, and highly desirable family homes. Substantial houses can be found on Hammersmith Grove, Coningham Road and Boscombe Road; while Lime Grove, Pennard Road and Frithville Gardens are all close to tube stations and offer well-proportioned Victorian homes.
