Twickenham may lack the cachet of Richmond a bridge span away, but locals feel they have the best of both worlds, with plenty of greenery, open space and river scenes, a useful high street, good state and private schools, quick trains to central London — and the rugby stadium.
Homes cost less than across the water, but the gap is closing. Brewery Wharf, pictured, is a rare new-build scheme of 110 homes beside the River Crane where it joins the Thames. The development, which seeks to create a town centre hub, includes a 320-seat arts venue and community building next to a piazza with bars and restaurants, and an underpass link to the nearby train station, from where it's a 26-minute commute to Waterloo.

Show flats open at the end of June. Warehouse-style architecture picks up on the site's brewery origins, with big aluminium-framed windows, exposed brickwork and armourcoated render. Smart interiors have wood parquet floors and sensor lighting. With prices from £450,000, completion is due at the end of next year. Georgian-style townhouses are coming later. Call St James on 020 3002 9457.
