Sunbury’s all set for takeoff
Hammersmith and Heathrow airport, reinvents a London garden square. A virtue of the site layout is that there are no cars above ground, freeing up precious space for central communal gardens and safe play areas for children. Townhouses have a separate basement entrance to the car park, plus private gardens and sunken patios. Prices from £1.93 million. For more on all three schemes, call 020 3005 5588. THE Thames-side town of Sunbury enjoys a green buffer zone, a pretty riverfront, a Georgian conservation area, playing fields, golf courses, boat clubs, a common and a walled park with an art gallery, riding schools and even its own racecourse, Kempton.
Regular Waterloo trains and lower property prices than nearby suburbs also make it worthwhile Surrey home buying territory. Apollo, right, is a gated scheme of 24 houses on an old aircraft components factory site near the river. From £530,000 for a twobedroom house, rising to £780,000 for a 1,700sq ft four-bedroom semi.
