Fly into Heathrow and you see why people like to live in the outer reaches of south-west London — the sweeping Thames, the commons and the great green tract of Richmond Park. Despite traffic congestion, for many this is the ideal London location. St Margarets Waterside, pictured, a scheme of 22 flats by developer Mizen on the banks of the River Crane, a Thames tributary, has views of Old Deer Park and Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Course. New office space for local small businesses is on offer, too. Prices from £395,000. Call 020 8903 2442.

A new-build "smart-home" near Richmond town centre, by award-winning Quad architects, has been unveiled. It looks like a classic house from the outside but this modern five-bedroom residence has an "intelligent" system controlling lighting, heating, security and audiovisual treats such as the home cinema. Price £2,695,000. Call estate agent Featherstone Leigh on 020 8940 1575.
