Ealing Party Wall Surveys
Ealing is the centre of the London borough of Ealing in the Western part of Greater London, postcode W5. Identified in the London Plan as a major metropolitan centre, Ealing is traditionally a village of Middlesex.
Home until 1908 to one of Britain’s finest schools, Great Ealing School, the area transformed from fields and pastures to houses
in the 1800s. The area benefitted from its rural feel and ease of access to the city centre. Ealing had a further boom in demand with the development of the nearby reservoir. The attraction of a good water supply brought through traders and residents in the late 1800's. The most significant change to the area was brought about through the Great Western Railway, bringing with it an established local economy dubbing Ealing the “Queen of the Suburbs”.
Post War, Ealing Studios and the BBC added to the Ealing "brand", basing the BBC's Film Department in Ealing for around 40 years.
The modern high street in Ealing consists mainly of commercial space featuring a selection of chain retailers and shopping centre. This brings about a variety of traditionally built domestic properties and post war commercial properties. A range of this nature provides vast and diverse selections for potential buyers in the area. Ealing still maintains its suburban status with a range of parks and greenery, granting the area with an aesthetic feel.
