Acton Gardens, the joint venture being undertaken by Countryside and L & Q has wowed the judges at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2014. The development which has seen a dramatic transformation of the South Acton Estate into a new urban village, beat stiff competition to win the award for ‘Best Regeneration Project’.

Acton Gardens Recognised As Best Regeneration Scheme

Acton Gardens picked up the accolade on Friday 17th May at the awards ceremony at the Dorchester Hotel, hosted by comedian Dara O’Briain and British Olympic Skeleton champion Lizzy Yarnold.  The awards are judged by Evening Standard readers as well as industry experts.  Now in their 23rd year, the Evening Standard New Homes Awards champion excellence across the housing spectrum. 

Andrew Loveday, Sales & Marketing Director of Countryside said: “Together with our joint venture partners L&Q, we are delighted that Acton Gardens has won the Best Regeneration Scheme category.  Our shared vision for this £600m regeneration scheme is to reconnect the estate to the wider neighbourhood, creating a new community of around 2,600 homes which offer a sense of place, security and safety for residents.  To date, the development has been highly successful and very well received which is a great testament to all partners involved in the project.”

The overall Masterplan for Acton Gardens includes a new sports ground; a central plaza with a shop, youth centre and other community facilities; and a proposed new bus route and street network to link the development to the surrounding area. Residents can also benefit from a car club.

Liberty Quarter is within a short walk of Acton Town tube providing Piccadilly and District Line services into the West End and the City. It is also close to Acton Main Line Station which from 2018 will benefit hugely from Crossrail, the major new east-west rail link that will improve journey times and rail capacity from Maidenhead in Berkshire and Heathrow Airport to Shenfield in Essex and Abbey Wood, near Woolwich in south-east London.

Perfect for shopping enthusiasts, nearby Chiswick High Street offers an exciting range of designer boutiques, good pubs and restaurants, whilst the Westfield regional shopping centre at White City is only 20 minutes away by tube from Acton Town station. For sports enthusiasts, golf is available at Old Deer Park, pitch and putt at Gunnersby Park and tennis in Acton Park.

Designed by acclaimed architect Alison Brooks, the homes are perfect for busy city lifestyles and have been finished to the highest quality specification with bright, spacious interiors and flooring included throughout.  Contemporary fitted kitchens feature handleless units in a high gloss finish, complemented by stone worktops and matching upstands.

A range of appliances includes a stainless steel oven, microwave, ceramic hob with glass splashback and integrated extractor fan, as well as energy efficient integrated fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer dryer.  Bathrooms combine style and practicality with sparkling white sanitary ware complemented by contemporary chrome taps and towel radiators and large fitted mirrors above the basins.

Prices for new homes in the latest phase, Liberty Quarter start from £390,000 for a 1 bedroom apartment, £425,500 for a 2 bedroom apartment and £650,000 for a 3 bedroom duplex überhaus apartment. Stylish 3 bedroom maisonettes and 4 bedroom townhouses are coming soon.
