A new village for West Drayton

There are 775 new homes at Drayton Garden Village with a pedestrian route to Crossrail planned for 2018.

Property values in West Drayton, a potential Crossrail winner, are at the lower end of the London price spectrum, meaning first-time buyers can benefit from the new stamp duty changes.

Two-bedroom flats, pictured, launched by Bellway at Drayton Garden Village, a new neighbourhood of 775 homes where there will be an upgraded pedestrian route to the planned Crossrail station opening in 2018, cost from £284,995, requiring stamp duty of £4,249. Previously, the stamp duty was £8,549. Call 0845 676 0252.

Traditionally, West Drayton appealed mainly to people working at Heathrow airport or at one of the local business parks. But Crossrail is widening its draw with the prospect of trains taking only 23 minutes to Bond Street.
