House prices have soared by as much as 73% along the route of the Crossrail line in the past two years, outstripping the London average by as much as 56 percentage points

According to exclusive research undertaken for Property Week by Groundsure the five areas that have seen the biggest growth between 2013-15 are Taplow (73%), Gidea Park (49%), Custom House (46%), Hayes & Harlington (46%) and Southall (45%) - well above the average London increase of 17%.

Homeowners who purchased in 2013 could pocket on average an extra £117,000 if they sold their home, the study said.

Some areas have yet to benefit from the “Crossrail effect”, with house price increases in Harold Wood (1%), Chadwell Heath (6%) and Ilford (7%) well below the London average.
