An open day for first-time buyers is due to be held in Shepherd’s Bush tomorrow.

There will be nine state-of-the-art apartments on show from developer St James, who through their partnership with Hammersmith & Fulham Council are offering them for 30% below the market rate.

The affordable properties, located at Lime Grove Mews, Stowe Road, are being marketed at low earners who have a combined annual household income below £64,000.

They currently start from £220,500, well below the borough average of £450,000.

With the borough having the fourth highest house prices in Britain, cabinet member for housing, Cllr Andrew Johnson, was clearly in support of scheme.

“This is fantastic news for hard working middle income earners who want to live in Hammersmith & Fulham but have not been able to afford to,” he said.

“The Discounted Market Sale scheme is ideal for young professionals who no longer want to rent property but establish themselves in a secure and central location, just a stone’s throw from Westfield and the vibrancy of Notting Hill and minutes from over and underground transport links to all areas of London.”

The event will take place on Saturday November 10, from 9 am to 1pm at Lime Grove Mews, Stowe Road, W12 8RL.

If you wish to attend, please contact St James in advance to discuss your eligibility for the scheme at or call 020 3002 9460.
