Why do you find Heston a great place to live?


"Connectivity with Central London."

September 2014

Local resident

"The lovely rural setting. Heston is stepped in history and benefits from its close proximity to Osterlery Park & House which is part of The National Trust. The area is typified by pre and post war housing. A notable exception of this is the Wheatlands Estate, built in 1963, which boasts a wide selection of two-bed apartments ranging up to four-bed detached houses all in a very modern style."
