Twickenham's new family homes:gated mews homes, restaurants and theatre are part of regeneration plans for this well-connected town centre

A fresh crop of family houses in good-value parts of south-west London have been unveiled...

Twickenham may lack the cachet of Richmond, a bridge-span away, but it can claim the best of all worlds: green open space and river, a useful high street, good state and private schools, 20-minute trains to central London plus quick links to Heathrow and Gatwick.

The town centre is getting a facelift with schemes such as Brewery Wharf, which also runs alongside the River Crane. This has 82 apartments and 28 houses, a new public square, restaurants and 350-seat theatre venue.

It also has a direct underpass to the train station. Within a gated mews are Georgian-style four-bedroom townhouses with portico entrances, first-floor terraces and rooftop dormers priced from £1,550,000. Call St James on 020 3642 9714. 

Old Isleworth is a quirky mix of old riverside village, modern office blocks and standard-issue suburbia. Fitzroy Gate is a seven-acre walled estate with private parkland running down to the Thames.

Having been a convent for 100 years, the site has been sensitively redeveloped into 39 private homes, including apartments in a listed white stucco mansion and crescent of new family houses.

Prices from £1,250,000 to £2,750,000. Call 020 3432 2981.
