Richmond is one of the capital’s most family-friendly boroughs

When it comes to property, especially London property, a lot of the time the focus is on the boroughs that perform the best for investors. Whether it’s postcodes that yield the most rent, houses that command record asking prices or even the best places to live within short commuting distance of Central London, these are all major factors to consider when it comes to the property market; but what about families who wish to put down roots in the area? 

As well as ticking all of these boxes, Richmond is also up there as one of the most family-friendly boroughs, thanks to its many freehold properties that feature gardens and/or outdoor space, reputable schools – it boasts a wide selection of highly regarded institutions – parks, low crime rate, and access into London’s attractions, all major factors for families.  

The major hurdle for living or moving to Richmond can often be price, as it is one of the most expensive boroughs to live; however those who are currently searching for property should check out some of the more affordable options around the Hampton and Twickenham pockets.  

And if you’re looking within the Kingston area, why not check out this five-bedroom family home that we have available to rent from the end of September?
