Commuter apartments in Ruislip offer best of both worlds

Commuter apartments in Ruislip offer best of both worlds City workers on the lookout for the perfect home away from the hustle and bustle of central London – but close enough for a hassle-free daily commute – are being urged to check out a popular George Wimpey development in Ruislip.

Homes in this highly desirable and leafy suburb have long been a big attraction for commuters, and the leading housebuilder is now making the location even more appealing with its range of stylish apartments available at Sandringham for as little as £209,995.

This exciting development lies within 19 acres of landscaped grounds between Ruislip and Eastcote High Street, close to a superb array of shops, leisure facilities, bars and restaurants and only a short distance from the tranquil parkland of Ruislip Lido, Ruislip Common and Park Wood.

Yet Sandringham is also just a few minutes’ walk from Eastcote Underground station – a Zone 5 stop served by both the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines.

Tim Betts, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: “For commuters, contemporary apartment living at our Sandringham development really does capture the best of both worlds.

“For those looking to get away from the hectic city environment, Ruislip is the perfect retreat for a relaxed and laid-back lifestyle. But it’s also well connected to central London, making travelling easy.”

A selection of ‘Hamptons’ apartments are on sale now at Sandringham, with one-bedroom designs starting at just £209,995 and two-bedroom plots available from only £249,995.

The homes boasts a spacious lounge/diner with open-plan kitchen, while selected upper floor plots have French doors leading to a private balcony and ground floor apartments enjoy access to terraces and a communal garden.

Each ‘Hamptons’ apartment benefits from an allocated parking space and is finished to a high standard specification, including central heating, double glazing and fitted kitchens with built-in oven, hob and stainless steel hood and appliances.

For those looking for a home that’s a little more expansive, the first phase of the Sandringham development also includes a range of attractive three and four-bedroom homes – with prices starting at £359,995 – while future phases are set to feature substantial detached family houses with gated entrances, and luxurious crescent townhouses for versatile living.

To find out more about homes at Sandringham, visit the Sales Centre and showhomes, located off Lime Grove, Eastcote, and open seven days a week from 10.30am to 5.30pm. Alternatively, log on to the website at
