Network Homes launches Acton Works …
Research has indicated that the London Borough of Brent is one of the top 10 places to find a ‘forever home’; with local residents spending an average of 26 years in the same property proving that the area not only offers great value for money, but also provides first-time purchasers with the perfect location to put down roots and begin their home-ownership journey. Situated within this increasingly sought-after borough, as well as on the boarder of Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham, is Acton Works by Network Homes. Recently launched on March 27th 2021, and offering a choice of one, two and three-bedroom Shared Ownership Apartments, there is truly something for everyone here.
Network Homes is proud to have worked alongside property developer, Hollybrook Homes to produce this top-tier selection of properties, which have been thoughtfully designed to offer tranquil ground and rooftop communal gardens, cycle storage and private allocated parking spaces to selected plots. Situated just moments away from a diverse range of shopping and dining facilities, Central Middlesex Hospital, and superb transport connections, Acton Works is an ideal choice for families, key workers and young professionals alike.
Acton Works will benefit from 13 stories, and boast its very own podium-level garden; complete with colourful planting, synthetic ground turf, raised planters and lounge benches to encourage relaxation, socialisation, and play. Another key feature of this development is ‘The Street’; an oasis between the two landmark buildings of the scheme – offering a sanctuary of calm and intimacy – away from the urban landscape Acton Lane. Benches will be strategically placed along the north-south spine of ‘The Street’ to distinguish between private garden spaces and the public area.
Kalumba Musambachime, Head of Sales and Built to Rent at Network Homes comments: “Park Royal is quickly being recognised as the location for settling; whether that be for the long term, or the short term. I think this upturn in interest can be attributed to the vast changes this area has seen, and will continue to see in the years to come. Park Royal is no exception. Acton Works has been built to form part of the much wider Old Oak and Park Royal regeneration, meaning residents will witness a distinct and positive growth within their local area. We encourage prospective purchasers with an eye for potential to reach out and register their interest as soon as possible.”
Historically an area populated by farms, and later, a hub for factories and warehouses aiding the war effort, Park Royal boasts a rich and fascinating history, characterised by its continual evolution and ability to move with the times. Echoing this, the newest regeneration scheme aims to transform the area; creating a sense of community, and guaranteeing connectivity with the rest of London. Major investment has been poured into rail infrastructure projects, HS2 and Crossrail over the past few years, and Park Royal is the only place in London where the two new transport links will meet. Old Oak Common will have six high-speed platforms and eight platforms for conventional trains via the Elizabeth Line; making it the perfect homing ground for commuters.
Residents at Acton Works are extremely well situated when it comes to shopping, leisure, green space and more. For some well-needed retail therapy, Ealing Broadway is an 18-minute bike ride away; or, for something a little further afield, Wembley Park’s’ London Designer Outlet and Westfield London are under half an hour away by tube respectively. The area is also home to a vast range of café’s, bars, and eateries; from Polish and middle eastern restaurants to sushi bars, American diners and popular high-street chains. For those in search of that all-important green space, Wormwood Scrubs Nature Reserve offers 200 acres of green space; ready to be explored. Gunnersbury Park and Chiswick Common are also nearby.
Families with children are also well catered for here. Acton Works is advantageously positioned within easy reach of a number of educational establishments, including Ark Priory Primary Academy (Good), Ark Acton Academy Ark Acton Academy (no Ofsted rating available currently), East Acton Primary School (Good), Berrymead Primary School Berrymead Primary School (Good).
Finally, Residents at Acton Works will benefit from superb transport connections; with Harlesden, North Acton, and Park Royal Underground Station all within walking distance of the development; giving access to the Bakerloo, Central and `Piccadilly Lines. The Old Oaks and Park Royal area is also set to benefit from both Crossrail connections and HS2. Old Oak Common will have six high-speed platforms and eight further platforms for conventional trains via the Elizabeth Line, including Crossrail and services to Wales and the west of England. Bus stops can be found just three-minutes away on foot, and for those who like to get around on two wheels, the London Cycle Network Routes intersect the local area.
A spokesperson from Hollybrook Homes comments: “This development epitomises modern-day convenience. Not only is the scheme extremely well situated in terms of amenities and travel links, but the homes themselves have been crafted to offer hassle free living to those with busy, Twenty-first century lifestyles. We anticipate an influx of enquiries from a range of buyer-types here.”
