Brentford Property on a mooring

The new improved Brentford increasingly resembles its upmarket neighbours, as well as the trendy area in central London.

  • Brentford's name is believed to have derived from Anglo-Saxon, meaning "Ford Over the River Brent". Brent itself is a Celtic name meaning "Holy One". First recorded as Breguntford in 704 AD, it has transitioned from Newe Braynford, Westbraynford, Old Braynford and Estbraynford into its modern nomenclature.
  • The area is known for numerous Iron Age and Bronze Age settlements that contain relics of Roman occupation (particularly pivotal during Caesar's time) as well as Saxon.
  • Brentford has since played important roles in the Civil War (such as the Battle of Brentford) and the shipping industry, and is now a lively community featuring several big international corporations.

Living in Brentford

  • Gorgeous locales of Hyde Park and Kensington just minutes away.
  • Several fascinating historic buildings, including stately homes.
  • Many local and global business investors.
  • Prime spots for boating on the river.
  • A more laid-back, pleasant atmosphere with several buzzing attractions within easy proximity.

Brentford property – like its history – is teeming with character. It features several Victorian and pre-Victorian terraced, detached, and semi-detached flats which offer both compact and spacious accommodation, as well as a range of contemporary housing, - perfect for families, couples, friends sharing, as well as single homeowners. With its two rivers and one canal, Brentford has redundant brownfield sites and extensive waterside areas, ripe for development.

Developments in Regatta Point and Kew Bridge House are adjacent to Chiswick and just across the river from Kew. These luxury blocks of flats will soon be joined by a string of major residential developments along Brentford High Road. These luxury developments and loft conversions tend to produce their own mini-communities.

The area is also fantastic for prospective houseboat owners who fancy a peaceful atmosphere by the water, though there are plenty of pastoral places beyond the banks to enjoy the tranquility of waterside living.


Council Tax

Brentford's council taxes start at approximately £1,000 for band A, and go up to £3,100 for band H.


Schools in Brentford

Brentford's ideal location means there are several excellent state-run and independent schools to choose from on your doorstep and in neighbouring areas. Gunnersbury Catholic School and St. Paul's School are just a few of the top ranked schools in the country.

Brentford Town Meadows Property

Brentford London attracts a myriad of communities, ranging from professionals to families and older couples. Its ideal proximity to Central London – as well as many other artistic hubs of the city – has made it the frequent haunt of many celebrity names, including Pocahontas (when she settled with John Rolfe in England), John Quincy Adams, William Shakespeare, JMW Turner and many more.

Brentford's new buyers are usually professionals hoping to establish themselves in one of the many local businesses, as well as families looking for a friendly area with lots of green space.

From the annual Brentford Festival to a host of other events which take place throughout the year, there is something for just about everyone. Lovers of landmarks will be drawn to the area's vast historical and botanical sites, such as the Brentford Monument, Syon Estate, London Butterfly House, Boston manor House, Brentford Dock, the Musical Museum and the famous Syon Park Academy (where once the poet Percy B. Shelley studied) among others.

Sports fans can enjoy the nearby Gunnersbury Park and Griffin Park (home to Brentford FC and Chelsea FC reserves). As well as featuring lots of lush green space, Brentford's proximity to Hyde Park makes it an ideal location for nature lovers, while its High Street is a hub for exciting sights and sounds.
