Twickenham is an affluent suburban town located in the south-western quadrant of Greater London, popular with City workers and families. This densely populated residential area is the largest town within the London Borough of Richmond, which as a borough, boasts a population of 195,680 residents (Census: 2011). The area contains a significantly above average proportion of adults within the most affluent AB social group (PROMIS). Twickenham continues to benefit from significant residential regeneration, particularly near the Railway Station due to the excellent transport links.

The town is approximately 16.2 km (10 miles) south west of Central London,
4.3 km (2.6 miles) north east of Kingston-upon-Thames and 9.0 km (5.6 miles) east of Heathrow Airport. Twickenham benefits from excellent communication links to Central London and London Airports from Twickenham Station, located approximately 100 metres (110 yards) to the east of the property.

Twickenham is world renowned for Twickenham Stadium, home of English Rugby with a capacity of 82,500. As well as the venue for home internationals, the stadium hosts other sporting events, concerts and conferences attracting tens of thousands to the town on a regular basis.

The property is prominently situated on the northern side of Whitton Road, at its junction with London Road (A310) and within 100 metres (110 yards) of Twickenham Railway Station (Southwestern Railway, Zone 5). The London Road (A310) forms part of Twickenham’s prime retail provision some 0.5 miles (800 metres) to the south of the property and both Whitton Road and London Road provide direct access to Chertsey Road (A316) which leads to the M25 motorway to the south west and Richmond/Chiswick to the north west.
The property is located in a densely populated residential area with various developments under construction in the vicinity. The area provides a mix of local and multiple retailers/restaurants and the immediate area is of mixed use with retail, offices and residential occupiers.
The area immediately to the south of the River Crane is undergoing a major reconfiguration with the following developments of note;


The recently completed (2019) Brewery Wharf development by Berkeley Group, provides twenty-eight, luxurious four- and five-bedroom houses in an exclusively gated mews location. The development includes an attractive restaurant with piazza overlooking the River Crane.


Twickenham Gateway is the ongoing redevelopment of Twickenham Station, a project between Network Rail and Kier. Once completed, the development will provide a brand-new station building with shops and a cafe´ and ground floor level and 1,2- and 3-bedroom contemporary apartments above. The development will boost the aesthetics of the station and certainly increase the resultant footfall.
