Shared Ownership in Acton
If you’re on the hunt for somewhere with transport links that will have you zipping around town, to work and back and even to Heathrow in under 20 minutes, then Acton is ideal. Home to 7 railway stations, this West London suburb is a commuter’s paradise, with a genteel neighbourhood decorated in leafy streets to come home to.
Acton is named for its Anglo-Saxon origin as “Oak Farm” and while it has come a long way from its days as a quaint rural settlement, this homely corner of London still carries with it a warm sense of community, village feel and rows of Victorian homes. Close to Acton central station is the whimsical retreat of Poet’s corner, peppered with restored cottages and nestled cafes in cobbled squares. And if a coffee and cake in the shadow of some regal looking architecture isn’t quite enough to whet your appetite then you can always take a stroll down to the bustling hubbub of Acton’s Market. Showcasing some enchanting finds, this Market is perfect if you’re looking to switch your diet to some authentic, fresh-out-the-ground fruit and veg or tickle your senses with some mouth-watering multicultural dishes brought to you from the vibrant community that Acton welcomes. Taking a walk-through Acton’s centre will have you swept up in aromas of sweet fresh bread to tantalising twists of turmeric and paprika. Brimming with Artisan shops and unique eateries, there is something quite magical about the diversity Acton celebrates.
Captivating and Contemporary
While not just a preserver of its humble roots, Acton will also supply you with the ultimate slice of cosmopolitan allure. With a huge regeneration scheme in the South rewarding the town with its brand-new Acton Gardens, this development programme has really put Acton on the map for its young professional appeal and trendy amenities. Arranged around leafy courtyards and contemporary landscaped pockets of green, this modern village is welcoming a multitude of new businesses and enterprises as well as a positive and bright community of work-from-homers and city commuters. With a new shopping centre, a neat residential area laced in tree lined streets and eccentric cosy coffee shops, Acton is embracing the new as much as it charms with the old.
