Askew Road and village is an area of great potential. Unlike the neighbouring Brackenbury Village, Askew has an up-and-coming feel about it, and has seen a number of new build and re-development projects in recent years. It is a popular and vibrant road, with roots dating back almost 300 years. It connects Goldhawk Road to Uxbridge Road and offers a mixture of residential dwellings and commercial premises. There are a variety of homes available, including statement red brick mansion blocks of Askew Mansions, impressive Victorian properties, as well as new build developments of flats and townhouses. With an array of differing property types, the area is very popular with both owner occupiers and buy-to-let investors.
Askew Road enjoys the best of both worlds, offering peacefulness with Wendell and Cathnor Park nearby, but also the hustle and bustle of busy coffee shops and restaurants in close proximity. One of the more famous shops is the Ginger Pig butchers, famed for providing many high end restaurants (including The Hawksmoor) with their meat such. Young professionals flock to the area to enjoy the great transport links; Askew Road is on a popular bus route but also has access to Goldhawk Road, Stamford Brook and Shepherds Bush stations all within 15-20 minutes’ walk away, giving commuters a choice of the Hammersmith & City, Central and District Lines. There are also some of the best schools in London close by, making it a great area for families.
Askew Road dates back as far as 1745, when it was known as 'Gaggle Goose Lane': a farmland with a path to connect the Uxbridge and Goldhawk, something it still does today. By 1830, Askew Road was busy with fruit and vegetable stalls, and the workers would haul the produce down the river Thames to take it to the expanding city.
Askew Road is steeped in history, but there are lots of exciting new residential and commercial developments taking place, making it great home and fantastic area for investment.
