Salisbury Gardens in Southall, the latest Barratt London development to launch, targets first-time-buyers and investors looking to capitalise on Crossrail's '£5.5bn boost' to property values
Salisbury Gardens is located in Southall, one of West London's most vibrant neighbourhoods. The development is made up of 103 homes and there are one, two, three and four-bedroom apartments and duplexes available for purchase.
The development has been designed to be reasonably priced and is therefore a rare opportunity for first-time-buyers to get their foot on the property ladder in London while benefiting from all of the features new build homes have to offer. Salisbury Gardens is also an excellent investment for people looking for a buy-to-let property with expected rental yields of up to 6.2%.
Tucked away on a quiet residential road, Salisbury Gardens offers a retreat from the stresses of modern life but with a rich multi-cultural neighbourhood on your doorstep. Southall is often referred to as Little India with its strong Indian and Pakistani roots as well as a mix of other diverse cultures and ethnicities.
Salisbury Gardens has good transport links. Zone 4 Southall train station is about 13 minutes’ walk away, allowing you to be on the tube at Ealing Broadway in six minutes. Salisbury Gardens is also perfect for those wanting to be close to London Heathrow Airport, just a 17 minute drive away.
Southall will also benefit from Crossrail when it opens in 2018, a fast new railway service connecting the outer suburbs to the heart of the city, at which time Southall will only be 18 minutes from Central London. Between 2012 and 2021 Crossrail could help create £5.5 billion in added value to residential and commercial real estate along its route, according to research for Crossrail by GVA, the UK’s largest independent commercial property consultant. The western section of the Crossrail route runs from Paddington in west London to Heathrow Airport and Reading. Southall station will be getting a new station building to facilitate the new Crossrail services. Works on the new station are due to begin in 2019.
A blueprint for a revitalised Southall that maximises the enormous potential of Crossrail was launched in December 2013 by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson and Ealing Council. The Mayor of London said: “Southall is one of London's gems and the arrival of Crossrail in 2018 will herald a new chapter for the town, stimulating large-scale investment in commercial activities, retail and housing and sparking massive regeneration.”
Whether you’re wanting to explore the local markets, relax on the banks of the Grand Union Canal, or visit nearby Westfield London in under 30 minutes, Salisbury Gardens is perfectly situated to offer residents a variety of lifestyle options.
