A prime example of how developers can revive and build upon London’s rich mid-twentieth Century heritage and history, Filmworks is a living tribute to Ealing’s Art Deco past. Top Uk developer Berkeley London have taken the old cinema venue and created luxury apartments that are cool, contemporary and elegant, while being close to good amenities and super-fast transport links. The one, two and three bedroom apartments, available for sale are divided up into phases that are each named after a famous British actor – a tribute to the area’s fame as home to the vastly influential Ealing Film Studios.
Investors in this new development can expect the high standards of on-site facilities that always comes with the Berkeley Homes brand. They include a full concierge service, private gym and on-site restaurants. Naturally, for a place inspired by the Ealing Studios of Sir Alec Guinness, there is also a fully-equipped screening room available. Interiors are imaginatively designed, impeccably finished and command picturesque views over the leafy streets and parks of West London.
There is a wealth of retail, eating and recreational options in or around Ealing, which is also the home of many top-performing schools. Just outside the front door of the development, you can stroll through a modern shopping centre and on to Pitzhanger Manor – the historic stately home and gallery that backs onto the tranquillity of Walpole Park. Transport-wise, the Crossrail initiative is a complete game-changer for the neighbourhood with Elizabeth Line trains reaching Bond Street in just over 10 minutes and Heathrow Airport in about quarter of an hour. There are also direct Tube routes into the West End and the City via the Central and District lines.
