The bright lights of New York City boast a wide appeal for property hunters, with high-rise apartment buildings housed within stunning architecture, tree lined avenues and traditional garden squares. For those looking to live the lifestyle of the Big Apple but without leaving London, buyers should consider West Park Terrace, the new phase at the Acton Gardens development in W3 by Countryside and L&Q.

Live Like a New Yorker in London with City Apartments at Acton Gardens

The striking design of the new apartments emulates the post-modern influences of the contemporary apartment blocks found stateside, overlooking traditional, tree-lined streets and a communal park square.

Apartments in New York City house everyone from young professionals to families, and West Park Terrace’s one, two and three bedroom apartments, überhaus apartments and überhaus penthouses offer similar appeal for all buyer types. Offering a contemporary collection of 54 homes, residents at Acton Gardens can enjoy the best of city living through superb transport connections, but with a sense of escapism thanks to residential streets and plenty of green open spaces.

Designed by PCKO Architects, West Park Terrace’s striking design aims to integrate the homes ranging over nine storeys and three blocks with neighbouring West Park, which will be complete in summer 2017. Additionally, all residents of West Park Quarter will have access to the communal courtyard and easy access to the new West Park, which will include a children’s playground.

Andrew Loveday, Sales Director at Countryside comments: “City living, be it London or New York, has some exciting advantages, with world-class shopping and dining, stunning architecture and first-rate entertainment and leisure amenities. West Park Terrace, our latest phase of apartments at Acton Gardens, boasts all of this on the doorstep while at the same time becoming a vibrant new urban quarter itself, taking influence from the structural design of New York City’s residential buildings. The hustle and bustle of the capital feels a million miles away in the peaceful enclave of West London, but with the West End just 33 minutes away – who needs Broadway?”

Acton Gardens is transforming the former 52 acre South Acton Estate into a new urban village. It is reconnecting the estate to the wider neighbourhood, with more than 2,500 new homes set within traditional tree-lined streets, and is increasingly providing a sense of place and community for residents.

The three and four bedroom überhauses at Acton Gardens offer intelligently designed living spaces, similar to New York loft apartments.  The split level properties have been designed to maximise space and combine a superb specification and light filled interiors.   Expansive floor to ceiling windows and carefully planned room layouts combine to give these homes a real wow-factor.  Outdoor living is also a key feature, with generous outside space including balconies, terraces and some private gardens. 

Designed to Countryside’s renowned standards, each property is built to the highest specification. Kitchens feature contemporary fitted units, stone worktops throughout and a range of high quality integrated appliances, while the bathrooms are sleek, featuring white bathroom suites, ceramic tiles and warming driftwood detailing.

In a nod to the traditional appeal of New York City’s parks and squares, the outdoor spaces are designed to create social, lively places for people to relax and enjoy, where pedestrians have priority and community interaction is encouraged. Green open space plays a vital role at Acton Gardens, with tree lined streets designed around a series of parks, squares and communal gardens, featuring extensive landscaping, play areas and allotments. The plans also include a proposed new bus route and street network linking with the surrounding area, as well as a car club for residents’ use.

Nearby Chiswick, one of London’s most fashionable villages, offers an exciting range of designer boutiques to rival Manhattan, whilst the Westfield regional shopping centre at White City, one of the largest urban shopping malls in the world, is only 20 minutes away by tube. For sports enthusiasts, golf is available at Old Deer Park, pitch and putt at Gunnersbury Park and tennis in Acton Park.

With excellent transport connections, Acton Gardens is located within a short walk of Acton Town underground station providing Piccadilly and District Line services into the West End and the City.  It is also close to Acton main line station, which will benefit from becoming a station on the Crossrail line when it opens in 2019.

Prices for one bedroom apartments in West Park Terrace are from £425,000, two bedroom apartments start from £570,000 and the three-bed überhaus penthouses are available from £700,000. Help to Buy is also available on a selection of these properties. The show home and interactive Marketing Suite are open Monday to Friday 10am-8pm and 10am-5pm at weekends.  For further sales information please visit www.actongardens.co.uk or call 020 8993 6923.
