Hayes in west London is part of the all-important Heathrow commercial zone, the group of areas that feed off the airport. Traditionally it has been a place to work or set up business rather than a desirable residential district, but such cheaper outer-London areas are becoming increasingly sought after, especially those such as Hayes that are on the Crossrail route scheduled to open in 2018. The capital’s new east-west rail route will bring central London — and even Canary Wharf — within a comfortable commuting distance.

From £175,000: there are 98 flats at Trident House through Galliard. Call 020 7620 1500

Trident House, above, a town-centre scheme of 98 flats from builder Galliard and property company Hurlington, is launching in Hayes in February with prices starting at £175,000. The developer is offering to pay stamp duty and is providing free furniture packs. Call 020 7620 1500.

Coming soon is The Old Vinyl Factory, a showpiece project which could transform Hayes’s image. The 18-acre site was once home to EMI headquarters and many of the company’s classic records were produced there. Redevelopment is creating a new “quarter”, with 630 homes alongside restored Art Deco buildings set to become boutique shops, work studios, bars and cafés, a cinema and a museum.
