At home in Barnes
Somewhat of a rural retreat, with its own cricket pitch, ancient church and duck
pond, Barnes is often noted for how different it feels compared to the rest of the
capital due to its laidback nature.
Desirable Property Types
Barnes is made up of a variety of desirable period properties with its Georgian riverside homes and Victorian terraces, in particular along the Castelnau road, being the area’s most popular homes. The neighbourhood also boasts plenty of large, multi-million pound mansions and upscale apartments that are all just as sought-after.
One of the many reasons for Barnes’ market town feel is due to its array of traditional and independent shops that call the area home. While elsewhere, Barnes Farmers’ Market, which is one of London’s oldest, is held every Saturday at Essex House and is a favourite of many a local.
Based in zone 3, the stations of Barnes and Barnes Bridge, which are both on the National Rail network, offer plenty of regular trains into central London. A number of buses also pass through the area as they make their way further into the capital, while Hammersmith station is also a not too distant walk on the other side of the Thames.
As one might expect from its village-y feel, Barnes also has a strong sense of community and attracts largely wealthy families and professionals with many working within the financial industry. A large number of those that do move to the area do so for a lengthy period of time, with a variety of properties making moving up or down the property ladder fairly achievable.
Nice to meet you
The Homyze Story
Whilst working on projects across London, Adam and Andrew were constantly asked by friends to refer a good plumber or carpenter. As property obsessives, Adam and Andrew were only too happy to help. They know what it is like to get your dream home. Or how annoying it can be if something is just not quite right.
When following up to make sure that they were happy with the work that had been done, Adam and Andrew realised that this was what the home services and construction industries were sorely lacking: quality customer service.
Quality tradespeople and excellent customer service were introduced and they got on fabulously. One thing led to another, and Homyze was born. We're really proud of what Homyze has done so far... she's growing up so fast but this is just the beginning. We know we will change the way in which people think about getting help with their home.
