West Ealing - London's new hot spot for first time buyers

Green Man Lane in Ealing has undergone a major transformation bringing new vibrancy to the area, as well as a rare opportunity for first-time buyers to purchase their own luxury home in the capital.

Jigsaw, the new development marketed and sold by our FABRICA brand, will contain 770 new homes when completed. The regeneration of the old Green Man Lane estate, designed by Conran and Partners, features boulevards and landscaped squares, cafes and a new primary school. And the addition of an expected Crossrail link in 2019 makes the new development particularly well placed for commuters.

Patrick Evans, 31 works in the heart of London as a recruitment consultant. Leading a busy social and professional life, Patrick needed his search for his first home to be easy, and the sales process as smooth as possible. He saw the Jigsaw apartments and immediately arranged a viewing.

“My first thoughts when I walked in were that the apartment was a good size, neutrally decorated, and a clean space I could do a lot with and make my own mark,” he says.

Another appealing aspect of the property was its location near the new Crossrail station in West Ealing, meaning Patrick’s apartment was not only a home but a solid investment for the future.

“As a first time buyer in London I was fortunate enough to find a fantastic property in Ealing and it’s great. It’s been built to a high standard and has a number of great spec appliances and facilities. I’m delighted to call it my first home.”
