Typical Kingston jobs
At home in Kingston
Once a part of Surrey before becoming a London borough in 1965, Kingston is today well known for its University and the subsequent vibrant environment that this brings. The area also offers up a variety of green spaces with Richmond Park in particular being a popular destination for those looking to enjoy London’s open spaces.
Desirable Property Types
Kingston boasts a great variety of properties including Edwardian and mid-20th century builds, but it’s its Victorian semi-detached cottages and villas that are most highly-sought after with north of the town centre being the most popular destination. The area also boasts a number of new builds, with the riverside apartments of Charter Quay and Kingston Riverside both being highly desirable.
Kingston is well known for being a great shopping destination outside central London with the Eden Walk shopping centre offering a multitude of high street stores to visit. The marketplace also offers up a great selection of stalls seven days a week, while a number of popular bars and restaurants can be found alongside the Thames.
Based in zone 6, Kingston station has a number of trains running into Waterloo, Clapham Junction and Victoria, and all taking roughly 30 minutes journey time. The A3 also passes through Kingston and offers easy access to central London as well as the M3 and M25.
Offering plenty of shopping options, a number of great schools and plenty of green space it’s understandable why Kingston is so popular with families. The plentiful and relatively straightforward travel options also makes Kingston a popular neighbourhood for professionals who don’t mind the commute from London’s outer reaches.
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.
