The streets that once rocked to the raucous sound of The Who in the sixties are now experiencing a somewhat calmer, but no less far-reaching, expansion in the 21st Century. Developers, Berkeley have forged ahead with the construction of these modern townhouses in the same neighbourhood that gave birth to modern British Rock. These gated homes which feature off-street parking and rear gardens are located near a cluster of well-regarded schools which make them ideal for young families.
Acton is a thriving shopping and culinary hotspot that is gearing up for a major upgrade as the Crossrail rail initiative transforms it from a West London buffer zone to a major stop on the express route between Heathrow and the West End. As it is, the area is not far from the glitzy shops of Westfield Shopping City, the riverside pubs and restaurants of Chiswick and the green open spaces of Ealing.
Transport connections in Acton are convenient and direct. The Piccadilly Line service connects Acton Town Station to Knightsbridge (for Harrod’s), the West End and the Eurostar terminus at St Pancras. The District Line links to the Gatwick Airport shuttle at Victoria before continuing on to the City.
