Located in West London, Sands End is filled with rows and rows of residential homes. Formerly an industrial area along the Thames, the neighborhood is brimming with young professionals and families who like order and green space. There is some variety in the buildings, though many properties look very similar.
Prices tend to be a little higher than other areas and people are more likely to buy a home here instead of renting it, especially if they have a family. With the higher costs, however, you do get an extremely safe area and a close-knit community.
Sand End has a charmed location. Perched on the river, it's close to the popular Bishops Park and South Park and there is a concentration of hotels, restaurants, and shops. Several restaurants here offer views over the Thames. North Road Market, held every Sunday, is quite popular for people to get fresh meat and produce.
