Chiswick Gate, a sizeable scheme of 44 townhouses and 78 apartments set back behind Hogarth Roundabout, named after 18th-century painter William Hogarth and one of the A4’s main junctions, helps to bridge the divide. A shoe polish factory once stood here, next to the surviving house where the artist once lived, which is open to the public.
The gated development has been designed with motorists in mind, having a vast underground car park, while there are communal gardens and safe play areas for children.
The site plan is a reworking of a London garden square, with the open central landscaped area lined by traditional-style brick houses of up to five bedrooms and five storeys, plus apartment blocks. Two-bedroom flats cost from £795,950. Houses start at £1.93 million. Call Berkeley Homes on 020 3411 8602.
