South Acton, London, UKFor Acton Gardens LLP
Work is now underway on an exciting new phase for Acton Gardens LLP in the London Borough of Ealing. Acton Gardens, Phase 4, forms part of the much larger regeneration of the South Acton Estate, part of a joint venture between Countryside and L&Q. The overall masterplan will deliver around 2700 new homes and community facilities.
Phase 4 comprises 107 new residential dwellings in 3 defined cores of 9 storey blocks. There is a mix of Social Rented, Shared Ownership and Private for Sale apartments with private gardens and roof terraces, along with a landscaped public open space.
The main blocks are presented as 3 distinct Park Frontage Villas, with robust masonry and large, full height windows, which have echoes of the grand Georgian or Victorian townhouses and mansions that line the parks of London. There is a strong, robust plinth to the lower floors containing family duplexes, with private and communal residential front entrances facing the key frontage of the park. Above the plinth there are 5 floors of apartments with generous balconies and large windows affording views over the park, the courtyard and the wider townscape.
