London’s newly crowned Elizabeth line is now less than two years away from fully opening, with the first new trains between Liverpool Street Main Line and Shenfield being introduced next month.
Recent forecasts have stated that houses prices along the line could continue to increase by 3.3% per year above local house price growth until the route’s launch in 2018/19 - resulting in an average price increase of £133,000 between now and when the first trains run! For those looking to take advantage of potential capital growth and new train links, check out the following properties for sale on the Crossrail line.

Studio, 1 bathroom | Westferry Road, Docklands, E14
A modern studio apartment, with a car park space and 24-hour Concierge, set within a fantastic development in the Isle of Dogs, a short walk from the future Crossrail station at Canary Wharf.

In fact, the property is located in the Canary Wharf Peninsula, which is set to undergo major development with the imminent arrival of the Elizabeth line.
