A family house in a quiet part of London

Ours is a family house 7/8 minutes from the tube/subway stations and 10 minutes walk from the nearby Ealing Broadway shopping and town centre. Roads, tube and train services are good if you want to travel around the country, including to Heathrow Airport, 25 minutes away.
The garden is south facing and screened and our neighbours couldn't be better. The house has everything for it to be a complete 'home-away-from-home' and a base for you to explore London - or further afield.

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: Heathrow - 8 miles

Ours is a quiet neighbourhood. Since the council put in the 'sleeping policemen' (speed bumps) traffic is virtually non-existent. The prevailing wind is from the west, so although we can see the planes coming in to Heathrow, they are far enough to the south that we cannot hear them.
Ealing Common, the nearest open space, is less than 200 metres to the east. The Grange pub, is on the corner of the Common and serves good food and drink. Ealing Broadway, the nearest shopping centre is less than 10 minutes walk north. The main line railway station and the District and Central tube lines are also on the Broadway. On the far side of Ealing Common is the Piccadilly tube station.
There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance and the west end is half an hour away on the tube. There are also numerous buses, so getting out is easy. Heathrow is 20 minutes from South Ealing tube station, less than 15 minutes walk.
Ten minutes walk to the south Gunnersbury House is set in a park with a lovely open area that used to belong to the Rothschild family, but was bequeathed to the nation in the 1920s.
Our immediate neighbours are friendly, will not invade your privacy, but can fill you in on anything local if you wish.
