Acton Works is a new development in the unique regeneration area of Old Oak and Park Royal, West London, by Network Homes. It comprises a range of 73 contemporary new Shared Ownership apartments. With a wide selection, there is a large choice of one, two, and three-bedroom apartments available to homebuyers. For those that drive, some Shared Ownership apartments will come with an allocated car parking space.
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. This information indicates that the area is not only good value for money, but it is also a perfect location for first-time buyers to put down roots and begin their home-ownership journey. Situated in this sought-after borough, as well as being on the border of Ealing and Hammersmith and Fulham, Acton Works by Network Homes is in the perfect location. The development was recently launched on March 27th, 2021, and has a range of homes to suit a variety of needs.
Network Homes is proud to have worked alongside property developer Hollybrook Homes to produce this top-tier selection of properties. They have all 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, and superb transport connections, Acton Works is the perfect choice for families, key workers, and young professionals alike.
Acton Works will benefit from 13 stories and boast its very own podium-level garden. Gardens will feature colourful planting, synthetic ground turf, raised planters, and lounge benches. This was designed to encourage relaxation, socialisation, and play.
Another key feature of the development is The Street, an oasis between the two landmark buildings, offering residents a place of calm and relaxation. 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. It is also a place that is able to move with the times and Park Royal’s newest regeneration scheme emphasises that. The development not only aims to create a sense of community but also wants to guarantee 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. Making it the perfect homing ground for commuters, Oak Common will have six high-speed platforms and eight platforms for conventional trains via the Elizabeth Line.
Residents at Acton Works are extremely well-situated, and nearby the development, there are retail stores, leisure facilities and green spaces. For those that like to indulge in 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 both under half an hour away by tube. The area is also home to a vast range of café’s, bars, and eateries, from Polish restaurants to sushi bars. For those in search of that all-important green space, Wormwood Scrubs Nature Reserve offers locals 200 acres of green space. Gunnersbury Park and Chiswick Common are also nearby.
Families with children are also well catered for here and Acton Works is advantageously positioned within easy reach of a number of educational establishments. Many are highly rated by Ofsted and include Ark Priory Primary Academy, Ark Acton Academy, East Acton Primary School, and Berrymead Primary School.
Residents at Acton Works will benefit from great transport connections, and Harlesden, North Acton, and Park Royal Underground Station are all within walking distance of the development. The Old Oaks and Park Royal area is also set to benefit from both Crossrail connections and HS2. For those that like to cycle, the London Cycle Network Routes cut through the local area.
A spokesperson from Hollybrook Homes comments:

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.”
